Chinatown Goji Berry Cravings

Ive been literally craving goji berries lately. Before this sensation came over me I would look at goji berries admire the price of the little red dots and keep it moving. Now i’ve found myself buying them every other day almost mixing them with cashews and going into gojichew trance. I walked to a spot in Chinatown to buy some.  I went to the counter of a spot I often walked pass to pay for the berries .The clerk/therapist/dr (he looked as if he was all three) rung me up and said have a good day. Then I had the thought in my mind I wonder if he has something to help my eyes 10 seconds later he walks over to a bag and says this is good for eyes and live… I gave him a weird smirk it was like mmm you heard that didn’t you and now you hand me this.. that thought just cost me but it is what I wanted. So he hands me a bag of these. Chrysanthemum flower 

I didn’t quite catch the name of it until later, english was not his first language. Either way he instructed me to take 10 of these and 10 of these (goji berries)  boil water, let it sit, empty water, then pour water again then eat goji berries. Im not sure if he said I can drink the water or not but i think the flower gave me gets in the water then the goji berry absorbs the liquid goodness in it and works with it that way once you eat and drink the water. Fascinating things you come across in china town.

According to the Chinese medicine, combining with goji berries help improve Yin energy and balance Yin and Yang. This combination also enhances the immune system, improves vision and memory, prevents hair loss, and strengthens the kidneys.

Goji berries benefit our health in many ways. This is one of the main reasons why these fruits are now gaining popularity and positive recognition. When you consume a small amount of these fruits every day, you will definitely wake up feeling healthier and better. The benefits of goji berries are truly amazing. However, over consumption of goji berries may cause sore throat due to their warm nature according to the Chinese Medicine.

They contain magnesium and thiamine, the two essential nutrients required for improved sleep. Thiamin also improves your energy level and mood, while magnesium improves the sleep quality by reducing the time one needs to fall asleep.

However, if you know how to combine goji berries with other foods, you can certainly triple their health benefits. Here are a few examples of food combinations that will optimize their health benefits.
