Superfood Spotlight: Health Benefits of Schisandra Berry

Grown in northern China and widely used in traditional Chinese medicine, Schisandra is a little red berry that tonifies and heals all five organ systems. As one of the three sacred berries of the east, Schisandra Berry develops and protects the key vital energies of the body, improving both vitality and beauty. It’s an adaptogen, meaning that it acts as a regulator of your energy and stress levels. If you're experiencing high-stress, adaptogens, like Schisandra Berry, can “calm” you down by normalizing your body without overstimulating—think anti-inflammatory. Schisandra berry supports the liver, improves stamina, regulates stress and increases concentration.
