Schizandra berry, from the plant Schizandra sinensis, is “the herb that does it all.” It develops and protects the primary energies of life. Schizandra, known as the “quintessence of Chinese tonic herbs” tonifies all three Treasures, enters all twelve meridians and nurtures all five elements. It supports vitality and is said to promote beautiful skin. The Taoists especially have revered Schizandra which is the favorite herb of Taoist Grandmaster Sung Jin Park. Though Schizandra is believed to benefit all the functions of the body, it has traditionally been considered to have the most influence on the Kidney, Lung, Liver and mental functions. Our Di Tao (authentic source) Schizandra berries are collected from the remote forests of Changbai Mountain in Manchuria.
