Schisandra is a plant native to China and eastern parts of Russia. In China, Schisandra is also known as Wu Wei Zi which means a "5-flavour berry" - salty, sweet, sour, spicy and bitter - all in one food.
Chinese people, in particular, had used it for thousands of years - they believe this food offers a whole number of wide-ranging health benefits.
We think Schisandra is a very valuable food for those of our customers who are trying to relieve tiredness and fatigue in a natural way, without having to use harsh and often harmful synthetic medications. (Ref. 1)
Schisandra is a known adaptogen - it can bring the body back into balance and protect it against environmental stressors. (Ref. 1)
From the perspective of energising the body *and* mind, Schisandra is believed to stimulate the brain and central nervous system without causing any physical instability that is often associated with caffeine consumption. (Ref. 2)
Schisandra may have adaptogenic effects similar to those of ginseng powder, rhodiola rosea, peruvian maca, reishi mushroom, shiitake mushroom, maitake mushroom, ginkgo biloba, ashwagandha, gynostemma. (Ref. 3)
All these powders may improve stamina and increase endurance rates for athletes as well - they can, no doubt, be a valuable natural source of athletes nutrition. So you may want to alternate these foods to get the best of each one.
You can take 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of schisandra berry powder a couple of times a day, or generally as required.
We highly recommend that you alternate Schisandra with another exceptional, marine-based food - Seagreens.
Seagreens are organic wild edible Arctic seaweeds that can deliver outstanding results if given enough time to work.
