Relic Far-Eastern plant schisandra (aka magnolia vine) is named in Chinese ancient treatises as "five flavored fruit". Traditional Chinese and Tibetan medicine have been using schisandra for a long time. The plant was classified among the superior medicines which were said to "prolong the years of life without aging". Far-Eastern residents used schisandra berries as food while hunting. Dried berries gave them strength and cheerfulness.
Schisandra stimulates the central nervous system, shows anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobe, antifungoid and anticancer effects. Stimulating effect of Schisandra is similar to action of ginseng, but not such strong.
Schisandra is taken as a stimulating and adaptogenic remedy in case of physical and mental exhaustion. It is helpful in the treatment of hypotonia, asthenia and depression.
