Goji Berries as Nutrient Rich Superfood
Amongst the many essential antioxidants, amino acids and numerous minerals, there are two main elements in the goji berry that stand out:
L-Arginine improves the reproductive health of both men and women by:
- Increasing blood circulation to the uterus, ovaries and genitals.
- Increases Nitric Oxide levels - supports healthy inflammation levels which may help to prevent uterine fertility issues such as fibroids, endometriosis and PCOS.
- Supports normal sperm production and motility.
- Encourages better production of cervical mucus through improved blood flow.
- Supports a healthy libido.
Equally as important, zinc is necessary in the production of protein and DNA as well as the operation in over a hundred different enzymes. In addition, this super nutrient also carries out central cell functions including repair, growth and membrane transport.
For women, zinc helps with:
- Mature egg production that are ripe for fertilization.
- Maintaining proper follicular fluid levels for eggs to travel successfully through the fallopian tubes and into the uterus for implantation.
- Hormone stability for estrogen, progesterone and testosterone levels stable throughout the entire menstrual cycle.
For men, zinc is necessary for:
- the creation of the outer membrane and tail of a sperm. Without it, the sperm cannot mature to a stage that gives them the mobility and strength to make the long journey through the vagina, cervix and into the uterus for fertilization to take place.
- Chromosomal changes: low levels of zinc may also be the reason for chromosomal defects in the sperm, which could cause a miscarriage even if fertilization and implantation do take place.
