Wild Harvested Schisandra

Commonly known as the five-flavour fruit – a treasured adaptogen known to calm the heart and quieten the spirit. 

Full Description

Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) is a plant native to northern China. The berry has five taste profiles – sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent. The Chinese believe that these berries “calm the heart and quiet the spirit”.

Schisandra is considered an adaptogen. Adaptogens are a class of natural substances that are believed to stimulate the body's resistance to physical, environmental, and emotional stressors. The chemicals in schisandra also improve liver function and might increase energy, which can improve endurance and coordination.

In traditional Chinese medicine, Schisandra is considered beneficial to qi, the life force or energy inherent in all living things. It’s thought to have a positive impact on several meridians, or pathways, in the body, including the heart, lungs, and kidneys.
