Has anyone tried the
goji berry drink, if so
have you noticed a
difference between the
juice and the pureed

I have tried both the Genesis Today
brands “Goji 100” (100% goji juice)
and “Total Goji 100” (100% goji, including
seeds, pulp, skin).
There is a difference definitely in taste.
The Total Goji 100 is thicker and sweeter
than the Goji 100. In fact, I think the
two taste quite a bit different, even aside
from these two features. They *almost* taste
like completely different juices altogether.
As for the energetic effects, I’d say they
are comparable. I don’t think that one is
necessarily better than the other one. It
comes down to personal preference.
With Total Goji 100, you get the seeds, pulp,
skin, and seed oils — and you don’t get
this with the Goji 100. So that would appear
to be a bonus with the Total Goji 100.
On the other hand, in so doing, the potassium
content is higher with the Total Goji 100,
so much so that they put a warning label on
the bottle . . . warning people with kidney
disease/dialysis etc. that it might not be a
good choice because of the high potassium.
So I think one could argue over advantages
and disadvantages over each type. Ultimately,
I don’t think it matters so much. You should
just pick the one that resonates best with you.
If you’ve never had either, you might try
getting a bottle of each, and seeing which one
feels better to you.
Personally, I drink the Goji 100.
Between the Goji and the bananas I have each day,
I don’t want to tax my kidneys with too much
potassium. Plus, I like the taste of it better.
But to each, his own.
I think Michael prefers the Total Goji 100.
From the Genesis Today website:
Q: How is TOTAL GOJI100 different than GOJI100?
A: GOJI100 is pure goji juice that has been slow-cooked in the spirit of traditional Chinese Medicine, the way it is has been done for centuries. The slow-cooked Goji is very potent, and is believed to bring out more hormone-supporting properties. TOTAL GOJI100, on the other hand, has not been slow-cooked, and is the whole berry, pureed. This is a very nutrient-dense juice that is thicker, and has a different flavor than the GOJI100.
Q: Does it have the same benefits as GOJI100
A: Yes, being a goji juice, it will offer the same benefits as GOJI100. Like GOJI100, it has the same health benefits and provides more beta carotene that is beneficial for eye health. It also provides more Vitamin C, potassium, and fiber than GOJI100.
Hope that helps,

But every day I have a smoothie, which has as its content:
a large banana, rice milk, vitamin C powder, cocoa, and ice
Basically a vehicle for getting extra vitamin C into my system,
as bananas are one of the few fruits I’m not allergic to
(I have a citrus allergy), plus bananas are a good potassium source.
Also use the smoothie to take some morning supplements, such as
Probiotic capsules and Chlorella.
