Is Himalayan Goji Juice only made with goji berries from the Himalayas?
Although they grow in the wild, goji berries are not cultivated in the Himalayas in sufficient quantity for large-scale distribution. The berries used in Himalayan Goji Juice are selected from the world's best-known growing regions. These include Inner Mongolia, as well as Ningxia and Xinjiang in the pristine Heavenly Mountains of western China. We use only those berries that conform to the precise Spectral Signature fingerprint and balanced polysaccharide profile of the original Lycium barbarum (goji) of the Himalayas.
Are the 4 polysaccharides unique to Himalayan Goji Juice?
The 4 polysaccharides are unique to goji, but can vary in quality depending on the ancestry of the plant and the growing conditions for a particular region in a particular year.

How is Himalayan Goji Juice different from other "juices"?
There is never any added sugar, artificial sweeteners, artificial colors or flavors in Himalayan Goji Juice, and goji is the only plant that has the 4 unique polysaccharidesthe Master Molecules that are so important to your body's defense systems.
How many pounds of goji berries are in a bottle of Himalayan Goji Juice, and why are fresh berries better than dried berries?
One liter of Himalayan Goji Juice contains the polysaccharides equivalent of 2.2 pounds of fresh goji berries. As an alternative, we suppose that one could simply eat dried goji berries. However, our research indicates that the quality of commercially-available dehydrated berries can vary tremendously, and there's also a high probability that the polysaccharides in dried berries may have oxidized and degraded.
Is Himalayan Goji Juice organic?
Although produced to high standards of ecological and environmental responsibility, Himalayan Goji Juice is not organic. We are working toward a cooperative program of organic certification for our network of growers, but the process is slow. Until then, just like every FreeLife product, Himalayan Goji Juice is certified to be free of pesticide residues. Also, Himalayan Goji Juice contains no added sugar, artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavors.
Why does FreeLife not emphasize the vitamins and 18 amino acids that are in goji?
Himalayan Goji Juice is a high-tech functional food, specifically designed to preserve the content and balance of the goji berry's delicate and highly protective polysaccharides. It is standardized to a consistently high level of polysaccharides, in perfect balance. Dozens of published scientific studies have confirmed that these polysaccharides are the most important bioactive components, and are responsible for much of the benefit of the goji berry. That is why we have chosen to focus on this aspect of the goji, rather than emphasize the other nutritional aspects of this remarkable plant.
Are there preservatives in Himalayan Goji Juice?
Yes. Freshness preservation is required to keep this chill-blended product from spoiling. We use less than one-tenth of 1% of naturally-derived sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate in Himalayan Goji Juice. Both ingredients are safe; they are even on the FDA GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) list. The only way to avoid preservatives would be to hot-fill the product in glass bottles. Hot filling would destroy our delicate active ingredients-the bioactive polysaccharides.
Why are other fruit juices added to Himalayan Goji Juice?
Our proprietary recipe incorporates a small amount of other fruit juices to ensure uniformity, and to help bring out the best flavor from the goji berry.
How soon should Himalayan Goji Juice be consumed after it is opened?
It is recommended that you consume Himalayan Goji Juice within 30 days after opening and refrigerating the bottle.
After Himalayan Goji Juice is opened, how long can it stay out of refrigeration and still remain effective?
For best-keeping qualities, keep Himalayan Goji Juice refrigerated after opening. It should not be left out for any more than a couple of hours, the same steps you would take for any food or beverage that must be refrigerated after opened.
