These antioxidants (like vitamin C) help combat premature aging, and they actually contain 500 times more vitamin C per ounce than oranges! Goji berries are also a good source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, and E, and even have natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal compounds. Plus, they contain all 18 of the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) that the human body cannot create itself and have one of the highest protein concentration of any fruit.
Mulberries contain significantly less sugar than other popular fruits and are a great source of protein and fiber which can help lower cholesterol and promote regular digestion. They are also a rich source of resveratrol, iron, B-complex vitamins, and vitamin K, and are excellent sources of vitamin C and phenols which are powerful antioxidants and immune-boosters.

They also offer high levels of bioflavonoids (also known as Vitamin P) which possess anti-sclerotic, antiviral, anti-carcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, and antioxidant properties, and play a vital role in nutrient absorption and detoxification. The goldenberry's high levels of pectin also help to regulate flow of food through the digestive tract, and even help lower cholesterol.

These anthocyanins also give cherries their dark, rich red color. Cherries are also moderate sources of vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium, and manganese, a good source of copper, and a mild source of zinc.
Hunza raisins are harvested from ancient fertile soils irrigated with Himalayan glacial waters.
