Benefits of Schizandra
Did you know that the adaptogen schizandra has become well known as an herb that cleanses the liver, offsets acetaminophen toxicity, and is a potent antioxidant?
It's also one of the best herbs for strengthening your kidney adrenal energy - especially sexual energy. Schizandra is stimulatory on the central nervous system, without being excitatory - it wakes you up without jitters! It also enhances physical and mental energy.
Schizandra works best in a formula
Schizandra is an astringent, meaning it helps the cells hold onto moisture and can consolidate the energy of a formula so the body retains it better.
Schizandra's profound effect on the skin also made it a favorite as a beauty tonic, as it was almost always consumed with herbs for building blood to nurture the complexion.
One of the stories most often associated with schizandra is the 100 day transformation. It is said that if you consume schizandra for 100 days in a row, you would purify the blood, sharpen the mind, rejuvenate sexual energy, and create radiant skin. Your physical vigor would improve and you would be on the road to prolonging your life.
There's a really easy way to get your daily dose of schizandra, since it is a major herb found in our formula for TianChi. It truly is an excellent adaptogen with a history of improving your health on almost every level.
