I just love this brand of goji. It is potent and you can smell the freshness of extract every time you open the bottle. The dose is great per pill so you can decide how much you want to take. Perfect partner for the same brand of pearl powder to take before bedtime. You will tell a difference before you finish the bottles.
Goji berries are also known as Lycium barbarum. The goji berry is native to Asia, and people in Asia have been using this brightly colored fruit for more than 2,000 years as a medicinal herb and food supplement. Goji berries can help vision because they contain high levels of healthy antioxidants, especially zeaxanthin. Goji berries contain healthy antioxidants. Antioxidants are known for their immune-boosting qualities and their ability to fight harmful free radicals and inflammation. Goji berries contain large amounts of vitamins A and C, similarly to other berries, including blueberries and raspberries. Phytochemicals in goji berries include polysaccharides, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin. Polysaccharides are a primary characteristic of the goji berry. These are an essential source of dietary fiber. A study using aging mice found that polysaccharides in goji berries helped with improving immune function and increasing total antioxidant activity in the body. I like the fact that Dragon Herb Go Ji is standardized to 40% Lycium Barbarum Polysaccharides (LBP), which is higher than other 20% ones. Will keep purchasing this item.
Really liked having these when i was trying to get my daily goji-berry dose in and didnt have time to make a smoothie at home, i just took 5-6 capsules with me to work and that was my daily dose :-)
These are just as effective as the whole goji berry itself, as it contains the polysaccarides found in goji which are what provide the body with the many health benefits that goji has to offer!
All of the dragon herbs extracts and powdered capsules are amazing, and very very potent!
I have yet to be more happy with any other brand of herbal extracts, Dragon Herbs surpassess all competition on so many levels, and this Goji- LBP 40 is no exception.
I do recommend these, however, if you have the money and can afford it, i find its best to take this along side the goji berry in its whole form - like trade off, one day take these - the next take the goji berries by the handful and/or in a smoothie.
This Goji extract is absolutely fantastic. I've been taking this For those of you who like to open up capsules, these taste great and I feel it's the best tonic ''herb'' (maybe along dendrobium :-) to replenish mental energy quickly after a demanding day at work. They say that regular consumption of goji will give you a cheerful attitude, but I couldn't say for sure if that very extract as a stand alone product has helped me on that level.
