Chia seeds and Goji Berries

Postby Rama » Sat Oct 21, 2017 4:20 pm

Traditional Chinese medicine shops around O'russey Market have Goji berries.
My wife goes to the larger of two on Street 139. Last time I was there with her the staff where packing smaller bags from a larger bag of dried berries. Would be far cheaper than any supermarket or hipster health food store.

We buy other medicines from there, what are the benefits of Goji berries and how do you take them?

Price is a bit up, $15/kg

Moringa seeds harder to get by as they're out of stock but I found a supplier in a side street @$10/kg, street market price. About 1/3 of retail price here.

maybe you have an interest in this http://www.lavieclairecambodia.com/en/w ... 30651.html

goji dont do anything for me personally. haven tried this juice

hmm they got chia there too
http://www.lavieclairecambodia.com/en/p ... 90400.html
havent tried these either
bought others elsewhere same no benefit for me . i am not fat.

fresh moringa leaves yes i go for those when i can. usually picked from street side trees. only take a smidgen enough to put in mouth and continue walking. no too frequently just when i feel a little low.
sometimes buy the leaves in the market but thiey give you a big bunch to small money. more than i can use so feel it is a waste. if they just sold one leaf for say 500-1000 riel i would be more inclined to buy it than same price for big bunch.

was under the impression it was an appetite suppressant for fat people. think it also has some beneficial effects on the stomach

Seems like a very pretty good price. Saw it in lucky today $11 for 500g

Also saw quinoa, $12 for 500g. That seems very expensive, I would expect to pay about that for 1kg. Has anybody seen that around town for cheaper?
