The red berry of Schizandra chinensis, a plant originating from Northern China, unusually combines the five tastes, hence its Chinese name "wu-wei-zi" ("fruit with five tastes").
The fruit of Schizandra Sinensis belongs to the category of astringent tonics. It is used not only to increase strength and physical, intellectual and sexual stamina, but also to treat certain respiratory and digestive conditions. It is an adaptogen that increases the body's ability to withstand stress.
Schizandra nourishes the kidneys: it stimulates adrenal cortical activity and helps combat chronic fatigue by stimulating energy production at its source. It can be used for long periods with no side effects.
