Schisandra Berry Whole
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Schisandra berry is known as Wu Wei Zi or “five-flavor fruit” because it tastes sweet, spicy, sour, bitter, and salty, all at the same time. The popular anti-stress tonic boosts physical stamina, and sexual energy, and is a potent liver protector.
Schisandra is a superior adaptogen - it helps your body adapt & cope with physical and mental stress, and generally strengthens major body functions. It has the unique ability to gently energize AND calm at the same time – depending on your body’s needs.
Reap the feel-good benefits of this 2,000-year-old tonic for yourself! Brew the tea or just infuse the dried berries in fruit juice.

Category: Adaptogen, Nutritive
These herbs are named for their ability to help the body “adapt” to stress and current life conditions. They are generally very safe herbs for men, women, and children. Adaptogenic herbs help the body build strength, endurance, vitality, energy, and immunity over time. They are meant to be taken long-term for the best results.
These herbs are considered to be superfoods with very high levels of nutrition, meaning they are safe to take daily and in higher dosages, as desired. Nutritive herbs are generally safe for all people, although pregnant or nursing women should consult with their health care provider.
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over ½ to 1 teaspoonful of herb. Allow to steep for 4 to 7 minutes, then strain. Drink 1- 2 cups of tea daily. If desired, add honey and/or lemon to taste.
