Cultivated in Germanium-Enriched Soil
[Poongwon] Germanium Silkmi Rice
Today we introduce a very special rice from a seaside village far south of Korea, from Gyeongju!
The area has a pristine, untouched environment with optimal conditions for harvesting rice. Poongwon's rice has a superior taste and texture - and is extremely rich in nutrients. That's because its cultivated in soil that's rich in organic germanium.
But exactly is organic germanium? It's a mineral that research has shown to boost immunity by increasing natural killer cells and white blood cells. It also helps inhibit the growth of parasites and cancer cells within the body while improving bone health and lowering blood pressure.
While it boasts many health benefits, this mineral is extremely rare! In fact, it's only found in a few spots around the world (Congo, Namibia & Kentucky, USA) - typically deep down in coal and nickel mines. After decades of mining, Poongwon Corp found a germanium-rich lode in Korea, near a mountain range in Gyeongju. In fact, it turned out to be the world's largest germanium mine to date.
With this vast supply, Poongwon created organic germanium fertilizer and feed for farmers. It's widely sought after and distributed to select growers in Korea - as well as 4 foreign countries (Germany, Japan, Ukraine, and Taiwan). This special fertilizer has proven to be very effective in rejuvenating and revitalizing soil by absorbing excess saline and harmful gases - while promoting the growth of beneficial micro-bacteria.
Poongwon grows its rice in soil that's been cultivated with its organic germanium fertilizer. As a result, their rice is packed with nutrients and tastes absolutely delicious!
If you're looking to try premium Korean rice - this is a special one!
Struggled with how to rate this because it's not that the rice is bad, but for that price markup the Golden Queen wins hands down. I didn't find the taste of this rice to be anything special, though the bottle container is handy.
