Keep calm with schisandra

Schisandra…it’s a bit of a tongue twister if you say it fast enough. Schisandra is actually an herb derived from the fruit of a vine native to China and Russia. It is sometimes referred to as “five flavor berry” because its taste captures the five major flavors – sweet, sour salty, bitter, and spicy.1

The fruit produced by the schisandra plant has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat indigestion, and other health problems, and enhance strength and stamina. 1 We use this unique ingredient in our GoYin Balancing Blend for its adaptogenic properties. Schisandra helps increase the body’s resistance to stress, while calming the nervous system. It also helps increase energy, physical performance and endurance.

In traditional Chinese medicine, schisandra is also used to promote healthy aging, normalizing blood sugar and blood pressure, and stimulating the immune system. According to the Memorial Sloan Cancer Institute, schisandra has antioxidant activity, which means it can neutralize free radicals that can cause cellular and genetic damage.2

How does schisandra work?

The chemicals in schisandra stimulate enzymes (proteins that speed up biochemical reactions). This is important because certain processes, one of which is increased absorption of nutrients, help the body function properly. These chemicals may also help the body have more energy, resulting in improved endurance and coordination.3
