「枸杞」的營養和功效

Updated: May 12

前一陣子買了本關於營養的書籍,放在床頭。昨夜睡前隨意翻閱,剛好看到「枸杞」的營養和功效,原來好處多多,摘要如下:


1. 富含褪黑激素,能改善睡眠

2. 在所有常見乾果內的抗氧化效果,排第三,是葡萄乾的五倍

3. 富含「玉米黃素」,可以預防眼睛黃斑部退化 (導致失明),而且含量是蛋的50倍。


剛好現在是春天,這個季節的早餐我很自然就會喜歡有點甜味。後來閱讀一本中醫書籍,發現原來春天在五行中屬木,可以吃些甘甜的食物,心想,「聆聽身體的需求,原來是有道理的!」


我煮麥片時,會撒些枸杞和龍眼一起煮,就有自然的甜味,再加上一些乾果,簡單又方便。


在此分享,祝大家週末愉快、輕鬆健康!





Read about the benefits of Goji berries last night from a book “ How Not To Die” written by Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM. Gojis have the highest concentration of melatonin, the third-highest antioxidant capacity of any common dried fruit- five time more than raisins and zeaxanthin which can protect your eyes from macular degeneration. With regard to the zeaxanthin content, goji berries have about fifty times more than eggs!


I like to cook my oatmeal with Goji and Longan to add some sweet flavor. According to Chinese medicine, it is good to have some sweetness in food in spring.


Wish you a healthy and relaxing weekend!
