ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
Schisandra berry is one of the queen’s within tonic herbalism, as she embodies the unique trait of containing the five flavors. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, flavors are seen as energetic signatures within a plant, demonstrating its distinct healing traits. The five flavors it contains are, sweet, bitter, salty, sour, and pungent, directly signaling its all-encompassing and highly medicinal nature. The five flavors directly relate to its ability to target the five yin organs; the liver, lungs, heart, kidneys, and spleen.
One of Schisandra’s key elements is its adaptogenic nature. Adaptogens are herbs that directly target the endocrine system. It’s a masterful herb that protects and helps cope against many types of stress and oxidative damage on a biological, mental, and emotional level. Adaptogens also target our hormonal and limbic systems, which directly influence our mood, emotional body, perception, and more.
