Organic Schisandra Rose Tonic: 118ml
Composed of nature's finest adaptogenic remedies, Schisandra chinensis. Schisandra berry is one of the queens within tonic herbalism, as she embodies the unique trait of containing the five flavours. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, flavours are seen as energetic signatures within a plant, demonstrating its distinct healing traits. The five flavours it contains are sweet, bitter, salty, sour and pungent, directly signalling its all-encompassing and highly medicinal nature. In TCM the five flavours directly relate to its ability to target the five yin organs, such as Liver, Lungs, Heart, Kidneys and Spleen.
One of Schisandra's key elements is its adaptogenic nature. Adaptogens are herbs that directly target the endocrine system, encompassing the infamous HPA axis, Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal axis, along with the sympatho-adrenal system (our fight or flight response). In other words, it's a masterful herb that protects and helps cope against many types of stress and the oxidative damage on a biological, mental and emotional level. Adaptogens also target our hormonal and limbic system, which directly influences our mood, emotional body, perception and more.

'SPIRITUAL' TONIC Schisandra berries are called the "quintessence of tonic herbs" by Taoist masters. It is the only herb known to be perfectly Yin-Yang balanced, to contain all three Treasures (Jing, Qi and Shen), to nurture all five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water) and to enter all twelve energy channels (meridians) of the human body. Beyond that, Schisandra also circulates in the "extraordinary channels" and facilitates the three main "dan tian" (energy centres of the body). Schisandra promotes the beauty and functionality of the skin, benefits the mind (especially memory), benefits sexual functions in men and women, and detoxifies the liver without causing re-toxification when the toxins are eliminated from the body. It is a profound adaptogen and Shen tonic.
JING - QI - SHEN
