(NaturalNews) I've been eating goji berries on an almost daily basis for at least six years. They've been part of Chinese Medicine for over 5,000 years, and they're super dense in antioxidants, trace minerals, carotenoids and other health-promoting phytonutrients. But a lot of people don't know how to really incorporate them into their diets! So below, you'll discover five easy ways to eat more goji berries and experience their extraordinary health benefits for yourself.

Most goji berries sold around the world, by the way, are packaged as dried berries. Think of them as superfood raisins, but slightly less moist. They have somewhat of a sweet taste, but their taste is actually far more complex due to the symphony of nutrients and minerals they deliver. Here are the ways I use them:

#1) Blend into fruit smoothies

Simply take some organic fresh or frozen fruit, blend it with your favorite milk (I use almond milk), then add in a scoop of goji berries. I also like to add chia seeds, pomegranate powder, camu camu powder and some superfood powders such as Rejuvenate or Living Fuel.

#2) Sprinkle onto granola or cereal

Goji berries make any granola better! Just take a spoon or two and sprinkle them over any cereal. It instantly increases the nutritional density of the cereal while delivering minerals like zinc and phosphorus. Plus, it's rich in vitamins C and E in their natural plant forms, not synthetic vitamin forms.

#3) Add to trail mixes and nut mixes

This is a no-brainer: Any trail mix, nut mix or travel snack mix can be instantly improved with superior nutrition by adding goji berries to the mix. This not only adds great taste to the mixes, it also adds visible natural color that makes it look more delicious without using any artificial colors.

#4) Soak in water to create "goji tea"

When soaked in water -- either cold or hot -- goji berries swell and release nutrients into the water. They've been used for thousands of years in China to make a nutrition-rich "fruity" tea. You can do this at home in mere minutes, and you can also mix goji berries with other teas you might already enjoy.

#5) Bake into muffins and breads

Although goji berries are more nutrient dense when consumed raw, they still pack an impressive nutritional profile when baked. This means you can mix them into recipes for breads, energy bars, muffins and more... and you'll instantly enhance their nutritional density with a superfood powerhouse!

Goji berries have more antioxidant power than broccoli!

As you'll see in our goji berry infographic (http://www.naturalnews.com/Infographic-Benef...), the ORAC scale shows goji berries have a higher antioxidant score than broccoli, grapes and strawberries.

They're loaded with antioxidants and carotenoids, and they've literally been used for over 5,000 years to promote stamina and longevity as part of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
