Goji Juice or Snake Oil?

Aug 18, 2008
What is all the hype about goji juice, goji berries, and glyconutrients about? Goji juice is a healthy supplement to our diets that can help with your overall well-being and keep you feeling well. The glyco nutrients in Goji juice are not found in abundance in our regular diets, only two of these are in most diets, but they can be easily supplemented with as little as an ounce of this healthy juice everyday.

Goji juice is rich in beta carotene and vitamin C, important carotenoids that have been proven to help keep the body healthy. Along with glyco nutrients, Goji juice also contains geranium which no other fruit is known to contain. It also has important polysaccharides that offer significant benefits to your overall health. Goji juice provides eight essential amino-acids and trace minerals that include zinc, copper, and selenium in addition to glyconutrients.

Goji berries and goji juice also provides Vitamin E which is normally only found in nuts and seeds along with B-complex vitamins and fatty acids. Goji berries provide 11 milligrams of iron per every 100 grams of fruit to the diet. The protein in goji juice is also said to be higher than that of wheat. Even without glyco nutrients, goji juice is a very healthy drink and should be a part of our everyday diet.

The glyconutrients found in goji juice are special sugars that we normally do not find in abundance in our daily diet. This group of eight glyco nutrients are building blocks that incorporate into the cells of your body and are involved in many biological functions. Glyco nutrients affect each individual cell's structure and help with cell to cell communication which offers protection for all the cells in the body.

Glyconutrients work on the premise of keeping the cells healthy which keeps the immune system strong. The blood, the immune system, tissues, glands, and internal organs all depend on healthy communication between the cells to function properly. When the cells miscommunicate it is believed that is when abnormal changes occur to the cells such as the change that free radical damage causes to cells.

Communication in the body starts breaking down without all of the glyconutrients in our diet. Problems set in when the cells can't recognize the good cells from the bad cells so they lose the ability to repair and defend each other.

All eight glyco nutrients are very important to the health and communication between the cells. Since our modern diet is lacking in some of them due to things such as green harvesting and processing, goji juice is the perfect addition to our diet to make sure that our body has all the glyconutrients that it needs to stay healthy. A little bit of goji juice does a lot of good for the body and helps keep all the cells in the body working together correctly.
