Schisandra has an extensive history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and it is said in Chinese folklore that it can “calm the heart and quiet the spirit”. TCM holds schisandra as one of its 50 fundamental herbs and it is considered to contain all five basic flavors: salty, sweet, sour, pungent, and bitter. Schisandra also goes by the names of magnolia berry and wu-wei-zi, meaning five taste fruit, among others. The fruit grows on deciduous vines that are native to eastern Russian and Chinese forests. It is often cultivated as an ornamental plant in gardens worldwide, coveted for its oval pink leaves and bright red berries.
Schisandra is abundant in wellness properties and is regarded for its bounty of antioxidants and for its adaptogenic qualities, along with a lengthy list of other helpful attributes. Schisandra chinensis can be combined into a tea decoction, into herbal brews (soft simmer), or prepared as a liquid extract. This botanical has been revered for its supportive benefits for centuries.
Our schisandra extract is made with organic dried berries in small batches by our expert team for quality and efficacy. This extract is mouthwateringly sour, with some bitterness, and a hint of salt. Schisandra extract goes well with other adaptogenic herbs including ashwagandha extract, rhodiola extract, or reishi extract.
