Schisandra chinensis is a seasonal vine that grows naturally in the lands of the Far East, and particularly in the forests of Manchuria and the Russian Primorsky and Khabarovsk Krai.
Schisandra is a typical woody plant that prefers shady, moist areas. Although a wild plant in China and Russia, Schisandra is cultivated like grapes. Schisandra berries have been used traditionally as performance enhancers and as an Adaptogen. Schisandra appears to also reduce anxiety and cortisol.
Schisandra is also rich in anthocyanins, which have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. Studies indicate that the antioxidant rating of Schisandra is superior to that of vitamin C and has high activity according to the ORAC method.
Schisandra has a long history in traditional Chinese medicine, as it is considered to be one of the 50 fundamental herbs. In vitro studies confirm the powerful antioxidant properties of the fruit of Schisandra to effectively neutralize free radicals.
