Goji cultivation in Kashmir-India

Would you like to increase your vitamin and mineral intake but hate taking pills and don’t want to eat kilo after kilo of fruits and vegetables?

This wonderful gift of nature is a treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, polysaccharides, amino acids, omega oils. That is why a small quantity of goji is sufficient to replace the missing nutrients. (Naturally, it is not enough alone; it is also very important to eat wholesome food, and lots of fruit and vegetables.)

Why do we call the goji a “super fruit” ? Because it has an exceptionally high content of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. And don’t forget that as it is a fruit, it does not have side effects! (Other super fruits are the camu camu, bee’s pollen, row cocoa etc.)

The goji berry contains more vitamin C than oranges, more beta-carotin than carrots, and more iron than a steak.

The goji berry (also called wolfberry) has been cultivated for thousands of years on the loess plateau of Ningxia. Because of its healing properties it is widely used in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Many Asian cuisines use it to flavour soups, sweets and seafood dishes.

Goji bushes grow up to 3 m high. The delicate berries are all hand picked and either carefully dried to get the delicious GrandVital Dried Goji Berry, or processed into highly nutritious goji berry juice.

Important Facts: It has the second highest vitamin C content in the world ( the first is the camu camu).

The high content of beta-carotin helps to prevent cardio-vascular conditions and protects the skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

The goji is also rich in B vitamins and other antioxidants, which help to protect our bodies from free-radicals and tumours.

Polysaccharides are energy boosting and adjust the immune system, and the amino acids help our organs to function properly.
