Goji berries for weight loss

3 min read

The birthplace of an exotic fruit is considered to be Tibet. Goji was used in this area to normalize hormonal levels, get rid of insomnia and restore the cardiovascular system. Today, an unusual berry has gained popularity. However, the scope has changed and goji berries are used for weight loss rather than recovery. We offer to consider the beneficial qualities of the fetus and methods of its administration.


The process of losing weight is associated with some features of the fetus:

Due to the low glycemic index (29 units), it is able to regulate blood sugar levels.
It contributes to the normalization of metabolic processes in the body.
Helps cleanse the gastrointestinal tract from the breakdown products of nutrients and toxins.
Suppresses appetite.

All this accelerates the decay of fatty tissues, but does not guarantee rapid weight loss without the application of other efforts. After all, this plant is not a drug in order to instantly lose weight, but only an adjuvant. When taking berries, it is imperative that you adjust your diet and exercise.

Cooking methods

There are a large number of recipes with goji berries for weight loss. Most often, the fruit is recommended to brew, but it is also used in dried form. In this situation, it is important to pay attention to several interesting facts:

The dried Chinese dereza fruit is less dangerous.
It is permissible to eat dry berries, like any dried fruit, as an independent product, for example, between meals in order to satisfy hunger.
It is important to monitor your well-being after the first dose, as it may cause stomach problems. At first, it is better to limit yourself to 1-2 fruits. In the future, if there are no adverse reactions, the amount can be gradually increased to 20 per day.
If you have problems with blood pressure or you are older than 50 years, you need to limit yourself to 7 berries per day.

If you decide to brew goji, it is important to observe a number of rules:

Fruits must be washed or soaked for 10 minutes.
Water should not be higher than 90 ° C, otherwise the berry will lose its beneficial qualities.
Use only glass or ceramic dishes. Aluminum and enamel containers are completely unsuitable. The composition of the fruit includes acids, which, when reacted with the surface of the bowl, can react and transform into compounds hazardous to human health.
The proportions are simple: for 2 tablespoons of berries you need 5 liters of hot water. The fruits are poured with boiling water and covered with a lid, after which the drink is allowed to infuse for 30 minutes.

Drink Conditions

The following instructions must be followed:

After the drink is infused, it must be filtered and drunk warm.
It is important to take the brewed berries 20 minutes before meals, 3 times a day, half a glass at a time.
Do not add anything to the finished drink. Sugar or honey will neutralize the beneficial properties of berries and will lead to the opposite result – a person will gain weight.

The fruits that remain after brewing can be eaten. The daily dose of the drink should not be more than 300 ml, since exceeding the norm can lead to problems with the stomach. Chinese dereza berries are also added to various drinks (teas, smoothies, cocktails), pies, salads and cereals.

Buying Dangers

It is worth noting that exclusively high-quality products can have a positive effect on the human body. Therefore, it is important to pay special attention to the rules for choosing a berry:

A fruit that is properly dried has a soft texture and a bright orange-red color.
If you shake the package with the berries, then they do not separate from each other, but, on the contrary, stick together.
Fruits should not be hard and crunchy.

In addition, in some outlets instead of goji berries they sell cranberries or barberries.

Admission restrictions

Fruits should not be taken:

pregnant and lactating;
persons with gastrointestinal problems and blood pressure;
those who treat diabetes mellitus medically.

Thus, it is best to consult a doctor before you start taking berries.
