It scores a whopping 25,300 on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC scale) – a fancy way of measuring antioxidant content – while common fruits like apples score just 218. If that wasn’t enough, these superstars contain 18 amino acids, including 8 essential amino acids, meaning they’reone of few plant sources of complete protein! They also contain 21 minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron, selenium and zinc. And from a vitamin standpoint, the goji berry is a fantastic source of brain-boosting B vitamins as well as antioxidants C and E.
