The Herbs- Goji Berry
Asias Original Superfood/Supertonic herb
Americans and Europeans are discovering what has been known for 2,500 years in Asia consuming Goji regularly helps you to feel, look and perform better on every level of life. Goji is not a placebo or fad herb. It has been used by billions of people over the period of thousands and years. Hundreds of scientific studies are confirming all its traditional uses and more. Goji is a life-supporting, health protective miracle if ever Nature created one!
Goji berries, a.k.a. Lycium Fruit or Wolfberries, from the plant Lycium barbarum, have been considered to be a magical longevity herb and superfood since the dawn of Asian civilization. To this day Goji is revered in Asia for its youth preserving, health protective, strengthening, and mood-supporting properties. And though it is a fruit, it is considered to be more than a common fruit it is regarded as one of the elite tonic herbs in the world.

High Quality Goji Tastes Great
Northwestern Chinese Goji (Lycium barbarum) is a delectable dried fruit that can be extracted to be used as an herbal supplement. The best tasting Goji comes from Heaven Mountain in northwestern China (Central Asia Heaven Mountain is about 12 thousand miles from Los Angeles as far away from the United States as one can go). Goji berries from Heaven Mountain are very sweet, have a rich delicious flavor and are tender (not tough like lower grade Goji). These qualities have made Heaven Mountain Goji a favorite superfood in Asia.
In China, this high quality Goji from China‰۪s northwestern territory is called a delicious herb, suitable for use in cuisine (raw or cooked) and for straight snacking. Low quality Goji may not be delicious at all. That is why people are so attracted to the flavor of Dragon Herbs Goji and Schizandra Drops. Both the Goji and the Schizandra have remarkable flavors. Most of the Goji used to manufacture products for the American market are NOT of this delicious variety. It is important to know that the taste of Goji is in fact related to its benefits and quality from a tonic perspective. The most powerful Goji from a tonic perspective just happens to be the best tasting. Lucky for us! The best Goji comes from Heaven Mountain in the remote northwest of China.

It is important to our health to maintain proper levels of free radicals in our body. We need antioxidants to support that balance. Excessive free radical production results in destruction of cellular integrity. The daily challenges of modern life, including pollution, poor diet and eating habits, overexposure to the sun rays, smoking (or being exposed to second hand smoke), and exposure to radiation all contribute to oxidation. Of course, it is best to avoid these toxic conditionsbut that is only partially possible.
It is essential that we consciously and consistently include antioxidants in our food and that means every day. And since it is often impossible to consume enough antioxidants via our diet, the modern lifestyle actually requires that we supplement our diets with rich, concentrated sources of antioxidants.
A diet rich in a wide variety of antioxidants is best for our health. Unfortunately, it is estimated that only one in four Americans is consuming the recommended twelve servings of fruits and vegetables a day recognized as the level of intake for maintaining good health. And even if one were consuming an ample supply of fruits and vegetables, it has been proven that certain antioxidants are more powerful health agents than others and the most potent antioxidants are not necessarily found in the common foods eaten in America. The polyphenols in green tea provide a perfect example, as do the carotenoids and polysaccharides in Goji.
