Schisandra has brains and beauty, supporting the production of thick and shiny hair, and firming up of skin. If you're thinking of botox and have concerns over aging, Schisandra is your new bff.

Schisandra Berry is one of the few adaptogens that is not a mushroom or a root. This powerful berry aka Wu Wei Zi or “five flavors” contains all five tastes according to Chinese medicine: sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty.

Like all adaptogens, Schisandra enhances the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. Because it contains all five tastes, it benefits the five Yin organs: the liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, and spleen.
