SLEEP LIKE A BABY & WAKE UP WITH EASE
We all know how amazing it feels when you have that perfect deep sleep so you’re ready to “go go go” the next day! A 2008 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine linked Goji with increased quality of sleep and ease of awakening.
YOUNGER FOR LONGER
Tibetan Medicine has prized Goji for thousands of years as a powerful longevity herb, for boosting vitality and slowing down the effects of ageing.
Today, science is starting to explain why… A 2017 study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry linked Goji to antioxidant effects. A 2011 study published in the journal Optometry and Vision Science found that taking Goji increased blood zeaxanthin and antioxidant levels. In 2010 a study published in the journal Neurochemical Research even linked Goji to helping prevent oxidative stress in the brain.
ENERGY & ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE
Need more energy or working towards a fitness goal? A 2008 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that Goji can increase overall energy levels as well as athletic performance.

Get your defences up! In 2009 a study published in in the Journal of Medicinal Food linked taking Goji to an increase in immunological response. A few years later a study published in the Journal of Nutrition also found Goji can support the immune system.
"These exquisite ruby gems have a natural bliss point that makes you feel satisfied & wanting more at the same time. I love how they have this special sweet-tart flavor that make them so unique! I would call them “the food of the goddesses!"
Nathalie Sader, holistic health coach and vegan chef.
A UNIQUE & POWERFUL
SPECIES OF GOJI
Tibetan Medicine doctors recognise this particular Goji as a unique species of Lycium berry – with powerful qualities and effects.
It only grows in remote Himalayan, Tibetan and Mongolian regions and is in fact the ancient ancestor of the Lycium Barbarum or “wolfberry” that you commonly find sold in stores as “Goji”.
Our Goji is collected from remote valleys and steep mountain slopes in Amdo – a traditional region of Tibet. Today known as the Qinghai province.
It is therefore often called “Tibetan” Goji.
Tibetan Medicine doctors and botanical experts are working towards having this ancient species of Goji formally classified as “Lycium Tibeticum”.
POTENT & NUTRIENT RICH - GROWING WILD IN HARSH CONDITIONS
Organic Burst Goji is wild-crafted – meaning the berries are picked directly from their natural environment in the wild.
The climate where they grow is harsh with temperatures reaching 102 °F (39 °C) and dropping to as low as -16 °F (-27 °C). Even under these difficult conditions, our Goji thrives in the ancient, fertile and alkaline soils.
It is widely known amongst botanists and herbalists that plants that thrive in the wild and especially in such tough conditions are more powerful and hardy than those grown on monoculture farms. The wild berries actually develop and store more nutrients to protect themselves so they can survive.
In their natural habitat, our Goji grow together with a variety of other herbs and plants – just as nature intended. They all help strengthen and protect each other to survive the tough conditions and form what are known as crop communities.
A SPECIAL CONSERVATION PROJECT
Our Goji is part of a harvesting and conservation project initiated by dedicated Tibetan Medicine doctors, Lamas, botanists and researchers to protect and preserve this ancient berry.
We work with a research institute of traditional Tibetan and Himalayan Medicine that helps preserve original Tibetan herbs, teach local communities and protect the biodiversity of these serene environments.
A Superior Taste
Floral without the "soapy" after-taste
If you’ve tried other Goji you're probably familiar with that typical soapy after-taste. Our Goji has a floral flavour with hints of raspberries, plums, cherries and dates.
This is because it grows in special conditions and is a different species to the common Goji you may find in stores today.
