    "My skin is radiant, clear and soft again."

    Description

    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.

    Traditionally used in Chinese medicine to:

    • Support healthy stress response in the body
    • Traditionally used in Chinese medicine to relieve weariness/tiredness/fatigue/feeling of weakness
    • Traditionally used in Chinese medicine to enrich/nourish/tonify/fortify/strengthen kidneys


    Sourcing:
    Our carefully dual-extracted schisandra is sourced Di Dao from China's Changbai Mountains.

    Contraindications:

    Caution use in those with an active peptic ulcer. Caution use in pregnancy - schisandra may cause uterine contractions and is useful postpartum to assist healing.

    Store below 30°C in a cool, dry place.
    Keep out of reach of children.
    Packed in Australia from imported ingredients.
    Talk to a TCM practitioner/health professional if you are unsure if this medicine is right for you.

    My goodness!

    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.

    100 Day Challenge

    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.
