Goldenberry – Golden Berries – Physalis Peruviana
Goldenberry also known as Physalis peruviana, or Inca Berries is a plant species with origins in Peru. The plant and its fruit are commonly called Cape gooseberry, goldenberry, and physalis, among numerous regional names. The history of Physalis cultivation in South America can be traced to the Inca. It has been cultivated in England since the late 18th century, and in South Africa in the Cape of Good Hope since at least the start of the 19th century. Widely introduced in the 20th century, Goldenberry is cultivated or grows wild across the world in temperate and tropical regions.
According to nutrient analysis by the USDA, a 100 gram serving of Golden Berries contains Vitamin C, thiamine and many other nutrients. Analysis of oil from different components, primarily the seeds, showed that the oil contained Vitamin K and beta-carotene. It’s also noted that the sample contained no cholesterol or trans fat.
What is Goldenberry
Goldenberry is an annual plant that develops into a branched shrub reaching up to about 5 feet with spreading branches and velvety, heart-shaped leaves. Like many phyto-nutrient rich plant compounds, it has been shown to reduce inflammation and help the body’s immune system by modulating many of its nutrient dense material into the blood stream.
Goldenberry has adaptogenic qualities so it tends to target areas in the gastro intestinal tract where much of the immune system operates. Average dose is 20 to 30mg per day on average. Mitigate high dosages as it can cause stomach irritation at high doses.
