Schizandra has been revered as a super tonic herb since the dawn of Chinese civilisation. Super tonic herbs like Schizandra are not a quick fix. Schizandra is in the elite category of herbs that increase vitality and wellbeing, making you more resilient and adaptive. It is said that those who take schizandra consistently will remain youthful in both appearance and physiology.
1. Lowers Inflammation
Thanks to its high concentration of antioxidant compounds, schizandra helps fight free radical damage and lowers inflammatory responses — which are at the root of modern diseases like cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Free radicals threaten our health because they turn on and off certain genes, cause cellular and tissue damage, and speed up the aging process.
2. Supports Adrenal Function, Helping Us Deal with the Effects of Stress
Known as an adaptogenic agent, schizandra helps balance hormones naturally and therefore improves our ability to deal with stressors, both physical and psychological. Adaptogenic herbs and superfoods have been used for thousands of years to naturally raise the body’s resistance to environmental stress, anxiety, toxin exposure, emotional trauma, mental fatigue and mental illnesses. Because schizandra helps nurture the adrenal glands and turns down an overproduction of “stress hormones” like cortisol, it’s linked with better mental capabilities, physical endurance and metabolic health.
3. Improves Liver Function & Digestive Health
Much of the anecdotal research on schizandra has focused on liver function, especially its effect on the production of various liver detoxifying enzymes. Its immune-boosting abilities are far-reaching because schizandra helps increase enzyme production, boosts antioxidant activity, and improves circulation, digestion and the ability to remove waste from the body. Because liver health is tied to stronger immunity, schizandra has been found to be protective against infections, indigestion and various gastrointestinal disorders.
