The Longevity Secret of the Himalayas
Goji berries, sometimes known as "wolfberries", have been consumed for centuries in ancient Chinese medicine for their ability to promote longevity and cellular defense. Our goji berries are handpicked from the Tibetan Plateau in the most prestigious region of the Himalayas, known as the “Roof of the World”. As a preferred method to sun-dried goji berries, our goji berries are shade-dried in rich botanical areas, preserving essential nutrients and lending an incredible mouthfeel. Ranked as top grade goji berries, our berries are selected according to their remarkable plumpness and delectable sweetness, outweighing all existing goji varieties. Viva Naturals Organic Goji Berries are certified organic and non-GMO, and are sourced directly from farmers in compliance with fair trade practices.
What are Goji Berries?
Goji berries are superfruits consisting of a unique color and texture, and are prized across Asia for their unparalleled healing abilities. Unlike any other fruit, goji berries are considered to be one of the most nutritionally dense superfoods on earth, consisting of over 20 trace minerals and 18 amino acids. Vitamin C and antioxidants like beta-carotene further enhance the nutritional value of these sacred berries, resulting in the juiciest top grade goji berries beyond compare.
Rich Supply of Antioxidants- Goji berries are a source of zeaxanthin and beta-carotene, two powerful antioxidants shown to promote eye health and glowing skin, respectively. According to a study conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of selected foods, goji berries received an ORAC score of 3,290, surpassing the antioxidant potential of blueberries, grapes and grapefruit.
Source of Dietary Fiber- Fiber is essential for sustaining healthy weight, controlling blood sugar levels and promoting a healthy digestive tract. Dried fruits that provide a dietary source of fiber are not equally as nutritious as our sweet goji berries. One ounce of Viva Naturals Organic Goji Berries provides 2g of dietary fiber contributing to 8% of your total recommended daily intake of this health promoting nutrient, based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
Abundant Source of Vitamin C - Our goji berries are loaded with immunity-boosting vitamin C, known to combat colds and fight flu symptoms. Just one ounce of Viva Naturals Organic Goji Berries contributes to 8% of your total recommended daily intake of vitamin C. Vitamin C has also been shown to defend the body against times of stress and is required for collagen production, firming skin and improving joint function and mobility.
Source of Essential Amino Acids - Cells, muscle and protein are composed of amino acids and are essential for everyday health. Viva Naturals Organic Goji Berries contain over 18 amino acids, including all of the essential amino acids, which makes them a complete vegetarian protein. For individuals following a vegetarian diet, goji berries are a healthy alternative to conventional protein-rich foods, helping you achieve your daily protein requirements.
