[Sangol Farm] Korean Pear & Balloon Flower Root Extract



Made with 3-year old Balloon Flower Roots

[Sangol Farm] Korean Pear & Balloon Flower Root Extract

In Korea, many office workers – especially those over the age of 30 – keep a mini cache of medicinal herbal extract packets at their desks.

They come in handy when you’re low on energy or experiencing general fatigue.

These extract packets provide a boost of natural, clean energy in the short-term, while restoring vitality in the long term - assuming regular consumption and a balanced diet.

The main ingredient in this extract is Korean Balloon Flower Root (known as 'Doraji' 도라지 in Korean).

Doraji is a root vegetable that's used in Korean recipes - you'll see it being stir-fried and tossed into a banchan (side-dish) or cut thinly as a topping for Bibimbap.

What's so special about it? 

Balloon Flower roots contain a special organic compound called Saponin.

Saponin have been shown to have antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, anti-cancer and even cholesterol-lowering properties.

Simply stated, this natural compound enhances your body’s ability to fight foreign agents and restore vitality.

This extract is made exclusively with bellflower roots that are at least 3 years old.

Why? As the balloon roots age and grow in size, they accumulate larger amounts of Saponin in their roots.

Note: These roots are grown without any pesticides – as the toxins would contaminate the roots.

Korean pear and natural honey are also added to this ballon flower extract.

The sweetness from the two ingredients help to balance-out the slightly-astrigent taste of the bellflower root.

All 3 ingredients are cut, boiled, blended, pressed, filtered and re-boiled for over 72 hours to produce this healthy extract!

Note: This extract has a strong bitter taste – it’s not consumed for its taste. But for better health!

Available in squeeze packets (15 packets) or in a larger scoop jar.

Korean Pear & Bellflower Root Extract

Great product. It's nice to eat straight out of the packet rather than mixing it with hot water (you can really taste the pear). A lovely healthy product. I will buy again. Thank you Gochujar!

Sangol Farm Korean Pear & Bellflower root extract

I've hv been searching for this brand online since I last finished my bottle bought from a store. Its not a common product and I can't find it anywhere. Luckily Gochujar sells it. I loved to eat a scoop directly without making into a drink. It felt refreshing and seems to clear my windpipe and lung as the extract went down my throat. I consume this for better health.

Better health

You can really taste the pear, and it also reminds me of molasses, because you taste the sweetness, then the bitter/metallic taste. I like the taste and I think the product is contributing to better overall health. I'm taking one packet per day and I'm about to reorder.

Nice tea

I bought the scoop jar and drank this regularly throughout the winter whenever I was feeling tired or sick! The flavour is unique and not very bitter to me.
