The schisandra berry is one of the 50 fundamental herbs in the repertoire of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Many herbalists consider it an “adaptogen,” which is a plant that can help our body resist a variety of physical and emotional stresses.
Schisandra, which grows on a vine, is native to Northern China and parts of Russia. The small red fruit grows in a grape-like cluster, and has a taste that is sweet, salty, bitter, sour and pungent, all at the same time. This is why the Chinese sometimes refer to it as the “five flavor berry.”
The Chinese also believe schisandra, which is a potent anti-inflammatory agent, will add years to your life. The berry is also said to increase your vitality and act as a sleep aid if you have insomnia. There are too many other schisandra benefits to list here.
Not surprisingly, this medicinal berry is becoming increasingly popular outside of China. Many consumers prefer a product with berries grown in the USA, which Herb Pharm makes as a liquid tincture.Buy Now
