Product Description
Our Premium Schisandra supplement is standardized to 5% Shizandrins extract.Schisandra is a plant whose small, red-coloured fruit has been used as a health elixer for centuries, particularly in China[1]. * Although its origin is in China, Schisandra berries are increasingly becoming known worldwide due to their possible health benefits. Schisandra can be used by both men and women of all ages and different backgrounds. Some of the researched health benefits of Schisandra berries have been recently demonstrated by modern studies. This information aims to offer a brief insight into many of these possible benefits that are present in our Schisandra extract.*
Product Benefits
Schisandra is considered a super adaptogen, in that it appears to have advantages over other adaptogens.
  • Schisandra may support healthy Liver Function and Digestive Health. Most anecdotal studies of Schisandra have focused on liver function. Schisandra may have an effect on the production of the different liver detoxifying enzymes. This may also boost antioxidant activity, circulation and the ability to remove waste from the body. A controlled study conducted by the Taichung Hospital Department of Health in China shows that patients experienced support in liver function while using a Schisandra extract[5]. The lag time for low-density lipoprotein oxidation and the total antioxidant status have been improved as a result from taking this extract[3]. *
  • Schisandra may support healthy Skin. Schisandra may support skin protection from environmental stress, toxin accumulation, sun exposure, allergic exposure and the wind. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Schisandara has been used globally to support skin conditions [3][4]. Although formal studies on the effect of this herb's fruits on the skin are yet to be conducted, a study in rats was conducted in 2015 and it indicated that Schisandra extract inhibited ear swelling by lowering skin dermatitis, cytokine production and immune cell filtration which are cell-calming skin challenge markers in humans[4]. *
  • Schisandra may support mens Health. Schisandra may have an effect on fertility and hormonal health. Research suggests Schisandra may support libido hence promoting optimal male function. Schisandra may also support healthy reproductive organs. In men, this extract may support the healthy production of semen. Some research suggests performance fatigue could be slowed down and endurance improved. In Asian herbalism, Schisandra is regarded as 'water of the genital organs'. * Regarding the impact on hormones, one hormone that may be inhibited is estrogen, which could be of benefit to men. *
  • Schisandra may support Bone Health. Bone mineral density may also supported. Bone density is affected with health issues like osteoporosis. These kind of ailments are common among aging women as they tend to experience rampant hormonal changes[2]. *
  • Schisandra may Boost Mental Performance. In China, Schisandra and its extracts have been used to support energy levels while at the same time boosting mental clarity. In Russia, the Nanai people used Schisandra extract to cater for their long voyages when they had no rest or nourishment[1]. It is said that their concentration and mental capabilities were elevated by this herb's fruit extract. The main advantage of using Schisandra to boost mental performance is that, unlike caffeine in tea and coffee which causes nervousness, restlessness and heartbeat irregularities, this herb may reduce fatigue in a calmer manner. *
  • Neurological and psychiatric health may also be supported through the consumption of Schisandra. The cell-calming and antioxidant effects of the Schisandra may be potentially helpful in the support of cognitive degeneration due to the neuroprotective characteristics. However, advanced studies are still being conducted so as to come up with a clear report on the mental performance and Schisandra. *
  • Schisandra may support cell-calming health. Schisandra may be effective in supporting cell-calming responses as well as supporting free radical damage in the body. Cell-calming and free radical damage are related to health challenges. Our health is profoundly threatened by the free radicals as they contribute in turning on and off certain genes, they speed up the aging process, and they cause cellular and tissue damage[6]. *
  • Schisandra may support the management of cell-calming and positively support the immune system. Atherosclerosis is affected by cell-calming and immune system. Blood sugar levels may also be supported through the consumption of this extract. Diabetes is related to blood sugar levels. In addition to this, the acid-base conditions balance in body may also be supported. Studies suggest that Schisandra may support the control of leukocytes[6], which are known for promoting cell-calming. By controlling leukocytes, cells are freed which may slow the formation of healthy cell management. *
  • Schisandra may support healthy Eyesight. Schisandra may support eye health by minimising redness of the eyes, supporting night vision while at the supprting the field of vision [7]. Research suggests that most of the support that Schisandra may give to the eyes could be as the result of the supporting a healthy liver. *
  • Schisandra may support healthy Lungs. Schisandra may support fluid regulation. As such, it may serve as a healthy lung tonic. Cigarette smokers, both past and present may have compromised lung function [9]. Schisandra contains vitamin C which may support healthy pathways of the lungs[8][9]. Due to the antioxidant property, the Journal of Experimental and Alternative Medicine reported that Schisandra extracts may support healthy breath. Asthma is known to shorten breathing. *
