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 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.
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.
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.
