Healthy Goods to excited to offer you remarkable products from a company called Ojio. Here's their story and their process when choosing their ingredients.
Ojio's Meticulous Selection Process
Ojio is proud of each and every product sold under their label. They spend their year traveling, visiting farms, inspecting factories and establishing partnerships with farmers all over the world. This ensures they find the best ingredients, no matter how much time it takes.
When Ojio is researching a specific superfood, they find that place in the world where the absolute best product comes from. Before selecting potential candidates, Ojio’s researchers compare sources, growing environments, soils, plant origin, and farming techniques.
After extensive scrutiny, a supplier is chosen, but the testing doesn’t stop there. Once Ojio receives their superfood from where it originated, they do more independent testing to ensure the highest standards.
You can rest assured Ojio’s final product is trustworthy, meets labeling restrictions, and contains what the label says it contains.
Two Popular Ojio Products
Ojio’s Shilajit Powder: in Sanskrit, shilajit is translated as the “rock of life” or “destroyer of weakness,” and is considered the cornerstone of Ayurvedic medicine. This unique substance is formed by the compression of organic materials between layers of rocks over hundreds, or even thousands, of years old. Shilajit is found in the Himalayan and Tibet Mountains.
One reason shilajit is popular is because of its high fluvic acid content, which has many proven benefits, including its ability to boost energy levels, support brain health, and reduce pain levels.
Ojio’s Yacon Syrup: Ojio’s yacon syrup has a smooth texture and sweet flavor, similar to yams. It makes a great substitute for molasses. Yacon is high in inulin, a natural prebiotic fiber, which creates a low-glycemic effect and supports digestive health.
This yacon is farmed in the lush mountain valleys of Peru. The yacon roots are sliced thin and sun-dried before being stone ground into a powder.
