  • Schizandra naturally supports liver functions and the body’s antioxidant activities. It is a hepato-protective substance, one that protects the liver from damage. The liver is responsible for filtering and removing fats, toxins, and waste products away from the body to ensure overall wellbeing. The Bastyr University Department of Botanical Medicine Materia Medica says that apart from protecting the liver from toxic damage, Schizandra also promotes natural regeneration of liver cells for restoration of liver functions. Additionally, the active ingredients in Schizandra help the liver in producing the premier antioxidant glutathione which exhibits potent free radical protection and aids in detoxification.
  • Schizandra is a very potent adaptogenic herb. Adaptogens are natural substances that boost the body’s tolerance to stress and reduce its negative effects on human health. Schizandra benefits energy levels, stamina, immune system, and mental functions in people who are constantly stressed-out from work, family, and other stress-inducing events.
  • Schizandra appears to strengthen the lungs and restore normal respiratory functions in people with respiratory ailments. Clinical studies on Schizandra reveal that it exhibits antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detoxification-inducing activities which are of therapeutic value for compromised respiratory functions as seen in asthma, flu, and coughs.
  • Schizandra also supports mental functions. It may help reduce mental fatigue as an effect of stress. Furthermore, Schizandra demonstrated abilities to sharpen memory, sustain mental alertness, promote learning, and concentration. It can be useful in promoting natural mental recovery in people suffering from memory and learning impairments due to dementias.

Schizandra (Schizandra chinensis) is a climbing vine that belongs to the magnolia family. It produces unique berries that the Chinese calls Wu Wei Zi for its distinctive taste, combining all five tastes of sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and pungent. Traditional Chinese Medicine uses the Schizandra fruit for a diverse range of health conditions. These days, Schizandra is widely studied as adaptogens and tonics. Preliminary studies on Schizandra found it contains very active ingredients including schizandrol, lignans schizandrin, gamma-schizandrin, and deoxyschizandrin. These benefical compounds appear to support the liver’s ability to produce the antioxidant glutathione and at the same time help it carry out its vital functions. Experts believe that Schizandra supplements have the abilities to stimulate the natural growth and regeneration of liver cells in people with chronic liver ailments like hepatitis and cirrhosis.
