There are many fruits to choose from when it comes to getting all the nutrients you need. Some of them might just come from the most unlikely sources like these three berries, the Goji, Acai and Cape Gooseberry.
The Goji berry is also known as the wolfberry. It originates from the Himalayan mountains and is a local delicacy. The Chinese believed that eating them can prolong one’s life. 40 grams of goji berry gives you 27% of the recommended daily intake for fiber.
The Acai berry is from acai palm trees in the Amazon. It is often found in juice or pulp since after being picked, it spoils easily. Packed with antioxidants, the acai berry fights off bad cholesterol and is dubbed to help decrease the risk of growth in cancer cells in the body.
The Cape Gooseberry is quite the fashionable fruit with its brown cape covering the miniature tomato-like berry. Also known as the ground cherry and Inca berry, it hails from South America but can be cultivated right on your own backyard. Rich in protein and carotenoids, the cape gooseberry is eaten as a preventive measure against heart diseases.
