Goji Berry Juice

Trust me, your not the only one asking what in the world is Goji Juice. Those were my exact words when I first discovered it. Goji (Go-jee) is known as the "Himalayan Health Secret." Goji Berries are packed with powerful antioxidants that destroy free radicals in your body before they can do any harm.

The Goji Berry has been used in traditional Tibetan medicine for centuries! When harvested, the berries are never touched by hand as they will oxidize and turn black if touched while fresh. They are shaken onto mats, then dried in the shade.

Goji Goji berries can be used in smoothies or juice cocktails. It is also available in juice form ready for drinking. The Goji fruit contains polysaccharides, which have been demonstrated to fortify the immune system. Goji has been said to have anti-aging properties because it contains a substance that stimulates the
secretion in the pituitary gland of human growth hormone (a powerful anti-aging hormone.)

It is the richest source of carotenoids, including beta carotene. Goji is a powerful, antioxidant filled elixir which is traditionally believed to strengthen the body against disease and to provide the energy those having difficulty while healing.
