Goji Berries and Juice for Long Life
The Goji berries come from Northern Asia in the Tibetan and Mongolian Himalayas. Goji Himalayan Berries are directly imported and are the authentic Lycium Eleagnus Barbarum, the original and most nutritious known strain of the 41 Asian varieties.
Our Goji Berries are officially certified as being chemical and contaminant-free, and naturally dried in semi-shade. The berries are not touched by hand, but instead collected by shaking the vines, as touching them causes them to lose some of their nutritional potency.
When you choose the organic wildcrafted Goji Berry Juice from the Himalayas you get a tasty, yet powerful health-promoting tonic.
