Dragon Herb's premier snack mix, Hermit's Mix, is a delightful combination of delicious goji berries, longan fruit, walnuts, and pine nuts. These superfoods are not only revered anti-aging and beautifying tonics, they are a nutritionally sound combination and source of natural energy.
Goji Berries are a nutrient-dense superfood containing protein, 21 essential minerals, 18 amino acids, and a compound known as lycium barbarum polysaccharide - shown to enhance immune function, cellular communication, vision, and provide antioxidant support. Goji berries are a red fruit with a sweet-tart flavor.
In Traditional Chinese medicine, the Goji Berry was classified as a "superior tonic" herb to preserve youth and promote general well-being.
The Longan fruit, or "Dragon Eye", is a source of vitamin C, Copper, Iron, Potassium, and Phosphorus. The Longan fruit has a delectable mouth feel, a firm first bite that melts in your mouth leaving behing a sweet and almost smoky-savory flavor that is unique and complex.
The Longan fruit is considered a delicious daily tonic herb that adds beauty and luster to the skin and calms the mind.
Walnuts are a rich source of beneficial fatty acids, providing heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and a rich supply of omega-3 fatty acids. A handful of walnuts provides almost as much omega-3 as a serving of salmon! Walnuts are also a source of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and B complex vitamins, particulary B6 and folate.
Walnut meat is considered an important tonic herb with significant tonic qualities. Walnuts are considered tonic to the kidney yang, and according to traditional Chinese health theory, beneficial to the primal energy of a human being, replenishing Yang Jing. Walnuts are the only nuts considered a "superior herb" in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Pine nuts are the seedlings of pine cones, and are another great source of heart healthy polyunsaturated fats and essential fatty acids. Pine nuts contain a high amino acid content, and are about 20% easily-digested protein. They are a rich source of vitamin K and Vitamin E, and also contain vitamins A, C, and B complex vitamins. The pine nut has as much phosphorus as the soy bean, and also contains magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, and iodine.
Dragon Herb's Hermit's Mix was named after the Taoist hermits- those who have chosen to practice in relative isolation, and/ or engage in aimless wandering in an ongoing way. The hermit holds a unique place in the history of Taoism, as it is thought that their level of attainment may be the most profound. A life of solitude enabled true human nature to be made manifest.
For many centuries, pine nuts were consumed by Taoists hermits instead of grains, as they were much easier to digest and provided a superb and efficient source of energy and nutrients. The Taoists combined these pine nuts with edible herbs. This is the inspiration for Hermit's Mix.
Hermit's Mix provides all three treasures, jing, qi, and shen.
