Schisandra Chinensis is one of the nature's most exquisite adaptogens.
Schizandra berry is very important within tonic herbalism. Known as one of the queens, she contains the '5 flavours'. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), flavours can be thought of as the energetic signatures of a plant, each carrying a unique healing trait. Queen Schizandra contains 'sweet', 'bitter', 'salty', 'sour' and 'pungent', which relate to her ability to target the 5 yin organs, i.e. Liver, Lungs, Heart, Kidneys, and Spleen.
Adaptogens are known todirectly target the endocrine system, which includes the reknowned 'HPA axis' (Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal Axis) and the sympatho-adrenal system (fight or flight response). As an adaptogen, Schizandra helps us not only manage stress, but it protects against oxidative damage. Schizandra is also known as a 'spiritual tonic' that nourishes the Jing, Qi, and particularly the Shen.
