In traditional Chinese medicine, Schisandra is considered beneficial to qi, the life force or energy inherent in all living things. It's thought to have a positive impact on several pathways in the body, including the heart, lungs, and kidneys.
Schisandra is used as an "adaptogen" for increasing resistance to disease and stress, increasing energy, and increasing physical performance and endurance.
Schisandra berries provide powerful antioxidant protection, particularly from free radicals and other toxins in the environment that may cause cellular damage.
It has been found that Schisandra reduces cortisol levels in the body (the stress hormone) and is effective in controlling changes in serotonin and adrenaline caused by stress. This adaptogenic berry also fights the adrenal fatigue that is linked to stress.
