Anyone who’s tried goji berries will know how fantastically good for you they are. They’ll also know how reminscent they can be of dried up hamster droppings! A lot of gojis on the market look and taste a bit dried up and nasty. That’s the reason why I usually soak them for at least five minutes in water to let them plump up and become super gojis again.
Goji berries are renowned for their ability to improve vision, boost sperm production, nourish the liver and kidney, act as a powerful antioxidant, improve circulation and their anti cancerous properties. They contain complex phyto-nutrients and bio flavinoids and are a very rich source of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamins A, C and E, flavanoids and other bio-active compounds. Gojis are also a good source of essential fatty acids.
So to recap, bloody amazing for you, look and may taste like dried up hamster poo. What’s a girl to do? Well, fret no more because Dragon Herbs Heaven Mountain Goji Berries are here to save the goji day!
I first tried these on a train coming back from nodnoL. My good friend Paddy (who’s secretly an 800 year old ancient guru) said “try these, best gojis in the world”. I didn’t quite believe him until I put a couple in my mouth. Oh my god! These literally ARE the best goji berries you will ever taste. I’ve never been so compelled to stuff my face with gojis before trying these. They taste like gojis but much richer, sweeter and juicier. Normal gojis to the power of inifinty. They are really, really soft and squishy and plump like big juicy raisins. They seem to have much more water content than your usual dried hamster dropping fare. They have an almost poished or varnished appearance, really no idea how they are so different. Ok, just remembered Google exists…
Heaven Mountain® Goji Berries are plump, juicy, naturally sweet, and absolutely delicious. Unlike other Gojis on the market, Heaven Mountain® Goji Berries are sweeter, fleshier and have less seeds. They have a much higher moisture level which contributes to their texture as plump and juicy.
Most Gojis on the market are rock hard. This is not without a reason. All the Gojis sold in the US come from China, whether they are labeled as Himalayan, Tibetan, or Wild. That translates to a very long transit time from the growing regions to the hands of the consumers. Typically, the berries reach the consumers at least 4-6 months after they are harvested. To stay shelf stable, most Goji farmers dry their Goji until the berries are very bone dry and very hard.
After years of research and development, Dragon Herbs has developed a special handling process and a custom designed packaging that allows the berries’ natural moisture level to be retained while satisfying the shelf stability required in commercial trade nowadays.
In a test conducted by an independent lab, Heaven Mountain® Goji Berries are shown to be twice as juicy as a competitor’s.
At the moment these are only available in the UK from Raw Living at £9.95 for 227g.
Honestly these are the best gojis you will ever taste. I URGE you to get some now and if you don’t like them get yourself sectioned under the Mental Health Act 🙂
