Schisandra Berries (Schisandra chinensis)
Schisandra (also spelled Schizandra) has the ability to help those that suffer from Hepatitis. The lignans in the berry appear to protect the liver by stimulating cells that produce much needed antioxidants.
Schizandra, may help you by calming frazzled nerves and redirecting energy where you need it. It's no wonder that the Chinese have a centuries-long tradition of using Schizandra to sustain youthful vigor.
Because of its adaptogenic properties, it has been applied next to some herbal medicines like Ginseng as a stimulator for the central nervous system, increased brain efficiency, improved reflexes, and an accelerated rate of endurance.
