One of the top herbs in the Daoist system, schisandra is known for its ability to harmonise the flow of Qi through the five organ systems of the human body. It is especially revered for its effects on the Kidney and Liver organ systems. This nourishing highly adaptive herb helps balance the nervous system, improves brain function, elevates immunity, and through its effects on the overall harmony of the body, assists those who consume it in remaining youthful, both in appearance and physiology. It is said that schisandra absorbs the Qi of the East, of the rising sun, and delivers this renewing and revitalising energy through the meridian systems. In folk herbalism, it is said that if taken for 100 days consecutively, schisandra purifies the Blood, brings sharpness to the mind, optimises memory, rejuvenates and astringes Kidney Essence (Jing), and supports reproductive function in both men and women. Schisandra also supports the Lung Qi, and may assist in harmonising Lung dysfunction.
In China, schisandra is known as wu wei zi, a name which translates to “five taste fruit,” named after the incredible flavour profile of the berry that has all five tastes: salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and pungent. Each taste/flavour corresponds to a major organ system within the body, and thus why schisandra is known for its capacity to influence/enter all five major organ systems of the body: the Liver, Lungs, Kidneys, Heart, and Spleen. This is why it is considered one of the ultimate herbs in Daoism; schisandra is able to regulate the entire system, nourish all organs, and thus protect all Three Treasures of the body (Jing, Qi and Shen). In the words of herbalist Deb Soule, “Schisandra holds the heart steady so one’s inner light can truly shine.”
Also known as a ‘beauty berry’ of the Orient, schisandra was used by ancient Chinese royalty to preserve youthfulness, enhance physical radiance, boost desire, and as a potent reproductive tonic. Schisandra has an excellent capacity to regenerative Water Qi in the Kidneys, thus building primary essence and rejuvenating sexual fluids. For our intention to age with grace, with a twinkle in the eye and our unique beauty radiating from within, we can't think of a herb that has our backs (and organs) more than schisandra does.

Our SuperFeast Schisandra is sourced from China's Changbai Mountains. Many people ask why we chose to source our schisandra from China. Di Dao is the reason!! Di Dao means original source. Schisandra chinensis is a deciduous woody vine in the Magnoliaceae family and is native to Northern China and Eastern Russia. It is now grown in many place in the world including Japan, Korea, and North America. Schisandra is well-researched by Chinese and Russian scientists and is used clinically as well as in their folk medicines.
SuperFeast schisandra berries are harvested at one year old, and must contain a minimum 2% schisandrins (though we don't standardise our herbs and belief that a full-spectrum extract is more useful than one that seeks specific chemical consituents). Schisandra also contains: sesquicarene, phytoestrogens, Ddeoxyschizandrin, schizandrol, stigmasterol and lingans (schisandrin and gomisin A). Fresh berries are a source of vitamins C and E.
Rather like grapes, schisandra berries can be made into juices, wines, teas, desserts, and can be eaten dried or fresh. Sun-dried berries are used in traditional Chinese medicine, and SuperFeast schisandra is harvested by hand and sun-dried to ensure traditional methods of cultivation are upheld. Berries ripen in late summer or early autumn. They are harvested when fully scarlet red - quite the sight to see!
SuperFeast Schisandra is dual-extracted (water and organic rice alcohol) and spray dried to ensure a high-quality herbal extract. We export in a GMP facility in China, where the herbs are tested by fingerprint chromatography to ensure the correct origin, as well as for heavy metals, pesticides, aflatoxins and moulds. This extract is then shipped to our Australian TGA packing facility where it is tested again (to verify it meets TGA standards) and then is packaged for sale. SuperFeast Schisandra meets the stringent TGA standards for herbal quality and is one of the few products in the Australian market to do comply with TGA requirements.

"I love adding this to my morning lemon water and have found my skin looks brighter after drinking it for the last few months. One of my favourites so far." Amy
"I'm half way through the 100 days of schizzzzz berry: more than anything I can really see the difference in my skin...... it's very luminous and smooth .... and being 3 months postpartum and breastfeeding I didn't expect looking so healthy! So I truly attribute this clarity to schizzzz because it hasn't been this shiny for ages!" Olga K.

I am on a liver detoxing journey with Schisandra being touted as supporting the liver to do just that (as well as so much else!) I received my bundle of goodness yesterday and was straight to the kettle to create my first concoction! The taste at the first sitting left much to be desired, but, second time round, it wasn't too much to handle!
As much as this is for my liver, I purchased this to support fertility and support blood flow to the Reproductive organs! My everything is crossed that Schisandra will support mine and my husbands desire to live a healthiful life.
I had two cups of schisandra yesterday, one late afternoon and another, a little before dinner and when it was time to sleep, it wasn't that I was tired, my body just wanted to cocoon itself between the blankets! It was the most special experience and I know it was the Schisandra just dropping in, giving me a hug! So beautiful! Thankyou x
And to Finn, for the special message I received with my package! Thankyou.
What beautiful feedback Michelle! May your journey with Schisandra Berry create the perfect environment for your intentions to become reality! I hope this precious Tonic Herb continues to comfort you!
I decided to try the 100 day challenge and bought 1kg of Schisandra. I started by taking 1/4 teaspoon and gradually increased and now take 2 teaspoons a day with my other lovely Superfeast Mushrooms.
I can now proudly say that for the first time in 70 years (young!) my nails have grown and I now have to actually cut them! My hair is thick and strong and the creepy skin on the tops of my arms has almost diminished. Having a thyroid condition my skin is no longer itchy and not as dry. I now give a teaspoon to my partner everyday and I am checking to see if it is beneficial for his thin hair.
I am very grateful to Superfeast for having such wonderful products that you can trust and I will continue to keep take Schisandra.
Thank you so much for sharing Carol. We are very happy to hear you are loving our Schisandra as much as we do. Happy herbing!
