Goji Juice was recently honored by being mentioned on the Oprah show, receiving an unpaid endorsement by leading Medical Doctor Mehmet Oz. This is a very significant honor - Oprah is the highest paid star on television, and her program is the highest-ranked talk show in history. No one would risk their credibility on a national program of this magnitude without truly believing in the product they were endorsing, and goes to show how widely recognized the benefits of Goji Juice have become.
In 2005, the Los Angeles Times raved about the health benefits of the goji berry. In 2006, Time magazine called the "Himalayan Goji Berry the Superfruit of the Year!" But yesterday, it got even better. The Oprah Winfrey Show, the highest-rated talk show in television history, recommended goji to Chicago Bulls leading scorer Ben Gordon to maintain high energy levels and not crash after working out. They called the goji berry, "the most potent antioxidant fruit that we know." America's Doctor, Dr. Mehmet Oz, author of the bestselling YOU: The Owners Manual, and Vice Chairman of Surgery at Columbia University, gave the recommendation on yesterday's episode, seen by approximately nine million viewers around the world. He also stated that goji "grows in the Himalayas."
As the category creator of the goji berry and the number one goji company in the world, we were thrilled with this unsolicited, unpaid endorsement of goji. We saw the great momentum created in our business that occurred after the Los Angeles Times article and the Time magazine piece. We believe this recommendation on The Oprah Winfrey Show is unprecedented in the Direct Sales industry and will help us to spread the good news of Himalayan Goji Juice around the world faster than ever before. Congratulations, everyone. Spread the word!
