Schisandra is considered a superior herb with the power to protect health and prolong life. In Chinese Schisandra translates to "five flavor berry," because when biting into them, one experiences sweet, sour, bitter, salty and a pungent heat. Schisandra is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs in traditional Chinese medicine and its five flavors correspond to the 5 elements in Chinese medicine: sweet (earth), sour (wood), bitter (fire), salty (water) and acrid (metal) and also corresponds to five of the six Ayurvedic tastes (minus astringent).

It is a harmonizing tonic that has been used for centuries to treat diseases of the lungs, liver, kidneys and heart along with calming the heart and easing the mind. It is considered an adaptogenic herb that strengthens all of the body's systems, raising the body's stamina and it's ability to resist all kinds of stress and disease. This dark berry is often associated with the sexual organs, known to increase the staying power in men and revitalize the woman's sexual experience. Particularly, the herb appears to protect the liver against a variety of toxins and enhance its function, helping to detoxify from food, alcohol and the everyday environment. It may specifically be prescribed by Herbalists to help enhance mental function, improve physical stamina and sexual performance, protect and detoxify the liver and kidneys, and treat insomnia. Schisandra may play an important role for those recovering from illness, suffering from physical or mental fatigue, regularly getting sick in winter or those with high levels of stress.
