Dragon Herbs Heaven Mountain Goji Berries

Millions of people throughout Asia consume Goji berries every day for both their unique, satisfying flavor, and for their health benefits. In China’s first herbal encyclopedia, Shen Nong’s Materia Medica, written in the 1st century B.C., Goji was classified as a “superior tonic,” a class of herbs that people should take on an on-going basis to preserve youth and to promote general well being of life. Goji’s superior tonic classification has stood the test of time. Two thousand years later, Goji berries are still being consumed regularly throughout Asian civilizations for those purported reasons. We now know that Goji berries are a “high-ORAC” antioxidant-rich superfruit featuring important phytochemicals such a beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, betaine, polysaccharides (LBPs), trace minerals and vitamins.

Heaven Mountain Goji Berries, the only Goji berries that are snack-grade delicious
Heaven Mountain Goji Berries are plump, juicy, naturally sweet, and absolutely delicious. Unlike other Gojis on the market, Heaven Mountain Goji Berries are sweeter, fleshier and have less seeds. They have a much higher moisture level which contributes to their texture as plump and juicy.

Most Gojis on the market are rock hard. This is not without a reason. All the Gojis sold in the US come from China, whether they are labeled as Himalayan, Tibetan, or Wild. That translates to a very long transit time from the growing regions to the hands of the consumers. Typically, the berries reach the consumers at least 4-6 months after they are harvested. To stay shelf stable, most Goji farmers dry their Goji until the berries are very bone dry and very hard.

After years of research and development, Dragon Herbs has developed a special handling process and a custom designed packaging that allows the berries’ natural moisture level to be retained while satisfying the shelf stability required in commercial trade nowadays.

In a test conducted by an independent lab, Heaven Mountain Goji Berries are shown to be twice as juicy as a competitor’s.

What makes Heaven Mountain Goji Berries so special?
Simply put, Heaven Mountain. Heaven Mountain is a remote mountain range in the northern region of Xin Jiang Province, China. In a more sophisticated way, the concept of Di Dao used in the world of herbalism can best describe the relationship between the geographical and geological features of the region and the phyto chemical profile of Heaven Mountain Goji Berries.

The “Di Tao” of Herbs
There’s a great concept in China known as Di Tao. The literal translation of Di Tao is “Earth Tao,” or “the Way of the Earth.” The Chinese dictionary definition of Di Tao is “from the place noted for the product ~ genuine, authentic, not from an inferior or counterfeit source.” According to the regulations of the Chinese Pharmacopeia, all herbal products manufactured and sold in China must utilize herbs that are Di Tao - that is, the herbs must come from a source that is considered legitimate and genuine.

All plants are the product of their growing environment and conditions. Different regions have their distinctive make-up of water, soil, sunshine, climate, and biological distribution. The varying methodologies adopted by different regions in their cultivation, collection, and final preparation of the herbs further differentiate the herbs from different sources. The Di Tao source of an herb is gradually established through the historical use of the herbs. By documenting how herbs from different origins differ in their pharmacological effects on the human body, the regions or sources that produce the most desired results have slowly come to be recognized as the authentic genuine source, Di Tao, both by common knowledge among the practicing herbalists as well as by government supported official recognition in the materia medica.

Heaven Mountain Goji Berries is one such example. The water, the soil, the sunshine and the weather have the precise qualities necessary for producing the best, richest, tastiest, most potent Goji berries on Earth. As a result, they have an extraordinary and balanced phyto-nutrient profile.

As part of the enormous Gobi Desert that covers southern Mongolia and northern China, Xin Jiang receives little to no rain each year. Every drop of water in the growing fields is derived from the melted snow and glacial runoff from the pristine Heaven Mountain. This water is pure and structured – it is nature’s ultimate irrigation system.

The virgin land of the Gobi Desert has little vegetation. It has a very high content of alkaline minerals. The pH level of the soil can be as high as 8.7 (17 times more alkaline than neutral) and the soil salt content can reach 1%. Few plants can survive in this kind of harsh environment. Goji, however, being an extremely adaptable plant, thrives here.

Daylight Duration
Xin Jiang province has the longest daylight duration among all provinces in China (Tibet included). It averages 2550 to 3300 hours of sunshine per year. The intensive sun light allows for much more productive photosynthesis in the Goji plants, leading to more flesh, sweeter taste, and naturally, higher content of active ingredients such as Lycium Polysaccharides (LBP).

Precipitous Daily Temperature Fluctuation
Another unique weather characteristic of Xin Jiang is the precipitous temperature fluctuation between day and night, usually as much as 36 to 45 °F within a single day. The locals joke that in Xin Jiang, no traveling is necessary in order to experience the four seasons within one day. It is quite common that you start the day with a winter jacket, strip down to a silk shirt at noon, then at night, you can enjoy their famous watermelons, next to a bonfire, that is.

It is Heaven Mountain Goji’s superb adaptability that makes it a highly revered adaptogenic, stressfighting tonic herb.

The Ministry of Agriculture of the People’s Republic of China has officially certified Heaven Mountain goji berries as Di Tao.

About Dragon Herbs, the company

Dragon Herbs was founded by Ron Teeguarden, a professional practitioner and teacher of holistic Asian health. Ron is recognized as the premier spokesperson for Chinese tonic herbalism in America, after spending decades teaching the concept of promoting health through Chinese Tonic Herbs.

For thousands of years, Asian herbalism has been used as a way to naturally maintain health. These tonic herbs safely promote ones health and healthy aging, and support “radiant health”, including increased longevity, emotional balance, resistance to disease, superb vitality, and maintenance of youthfulness. 

To be considered a Superior Tonic herb, that herb must have been found to meet specific qualifications over many centuries of human use, including: 

  • • Possess anti-aging and longevity characteristics
  • • Profound health-promoting actions
  • • Balance emotional and psychic energy to improve emotional and spiritual wellbeing and happiness
  • • No negative side effects when taken continuously 
  • • Be easily digestible and assimilated, and taste good enough to be easily consumed
  • • Must contain at least one of the “three treasures”

The Three Treasures

In traditional Asian healthcare, there are said to be Three Treasures, or three primary types of energy in the body. These energies are known as treasures because they are the basis for life. The three treasures are Jing, Qi, and Shen, also known as Essence, Vitality, and Awareness. True health and happiness cannot be obtained unless all three treasures are valued and not wasted. 

The Dragon Herbs line of herbal tonics is based on these superior herbs. Using herbs from their natural sources combined with cutting edge modern technology, Ron Teeguarden’s Dragon Herbs provide a broad and complete program of superior tonics to help promote radiant health on every level of your being.

    "By far the best Goji"
  1. Review by Philippe G.
    Posted on 6/6/2016

    By far the best Goji berries on the market. They are sweet and sticky, not dry like all other Goji berries that you can buy. A little more expensive but worth every penny.

    "I use goji berries in"
  3. Review by Emjay
    Posted on 5/13/2016

    I use goji berries in recipes that call for dried cranberries, like chicken salad, slaw with walnuts. Not easy to separate them, especially when they’re packed tightly into the bag.

    Flavor is good. I would have liked them to be a bit sweeter. But i have heard that this is the best brand of gogi berries you can buy.

    I'm new to the whole goji berry craze, and this being my first attempt to try, I have nothing to compare it to, but I know these are delicious and the health benefits I've been reading about can't hurt! I snack on these about once a day- they really are nice and juicy with a sweet taste, and I just feel good afterwards! Will most likely buy again.

    "Why is every review dated on 11/15/12?"
  19. Review by Skeptical
    Posted on 4/8/2013

    I find it hard it believe that everyone reviewing these organic berries, as well as the bulk ones, all posted on the exact same day. No posts before or since. Seems like a lazy marketer went to work adding reviews. I am posting this to simply see if it is uploaded with a current date...or if it too will show 11/15/12...indicating a software problem.

    Note from Live Superfoods: You're right, due to a glitch with importing reviews from a previous system (which was indeed 11/15/12), unfortunately we were not able to import the correct review dates. Not ideal, but the best we could do under the circumstances.

    "Great for a healthy snack"
  21. Review by Nate
    Posted on 11/15/2012

    I've tried other goji berries before, and even though I know they're good for me, I can't get past the taste and texture. These berries, however, have a really nice chewy texture and a lightly sweet flavor that makes them perfect for eating by the handful. A very enjoyable way to stay healthy.
