Q: "What on earth is a Goji Berry? " (Yup, we get this one a lot!)

A: Small, powerful and simply our fave, the tiny red goji berries, traditionally grown in Asia, but now grown right here in BC with Gojoy, are known to be among the earth's super-foods! This means they are a nutrient-rich food containing multiple health and wellness-promoting properties.They're rich in Beta-Carotene, Zeaxanthin and vitamins A, C and E, giving them amazing antioxidant properties. Many studies also suggest that goji berries are beneficial for the immune system, cardiovascular system, eyes and liver, and can boost energy and metabolism! Added to your daily routine? Now that’s what we call joy! (And it's exactly why we were inspired to create Gojoy.) See how to create amazing dishes on our recipe page!

Q: So what exactly are Gojoy Smoothie Boosters? (We can't wait for you to find out!)

A: Simply put, they are joy on the go! Life's fast, but Gojoy Smoothie Boosters are the perfect way to add extra flavour and nutrients to your smoothie so you can keep up! Each Gojoy Smoothie Booster packet contains a delicious blend of BC-grown gojis, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, cranberries and blackberries.

Studies show that berries are some of nature’s most potent food, packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. They have anti-inflammatory properties, lower cholesterol, provide benefits for the cardiovascular system and possibly protect against cancer. Each kind of berry adds its own unique benefit to your body. Our frozen packs provide a simple way to boost your meals with nutritional power and while they make a healthy treat on their own, you can just thaw them out and drizzle them over pancakes, yogurt or ice cream for some added joy!
