Schisandra is one of the world’s finest adaptogenic and healing herbs.
Here are 3 keys to its healing powers:
- The word “adaptogen” was, in fact, created to describe the collective healing potential of schisandra. Scientists used the word to highlight its synergistic and whole-body tonifying properties. A powerful tonic, it can counter the systemic impact of stress on the body, boost the immune system, and support the liver, kidney, heart, lung, and digestive functions. It literally helps you to adapt.
- It is famous in Traditional Chinese Medicine for being the only herb to taste like each of the five flavors: salty, sour, pungent, sweet, and bitter. These flavors are each associated with the five major bodily systems in Five Phase Theory and indicate healing attributes in and of themselves.
- Studies confirm the herb’s ability to also be able to significantly counter the effects of external stress such as heat shock, frostbite, immobilization, aseptic inflammation, swimming under atmospheric pressure (think deep sea diving), irradiation, and heavy metal intoxication.
