Schisandra Chinensis



SKU: N/A Category:


Schisandra chinensis enhances reflexes & work performance. The Chinese name for Schisandra is Wu Wei Zi, which means “five flavors fruit.” According to Chinese medical traditions, Schisandra berries have all five flavors (sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty) recognized in that culture. Because it has all of the tastes, it benefits the five yin organs: the liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, and spleen.

The Japanese called Schisandra ‘Gomishi’ and used it for people with coughs, weakness, excess phlegm, and “hood vertigo” (a feeling of congestion and constriction around the head). In Korea, it is called ‘omija,’ and the Koreans use it very much like the Japanese. In Hong Kong, it is known as ‘ng may gee’ and is used for people with dysentery, wheezing, jaundice, and spermatorrhea. In modern Chinese medicine, Schisandra is used to ‘astringe the jing.’

Schisandra is used to control diarrhea, frequent urination, excessive vaginal discharge, and premature ejaculation. Because it dries up excess fluids, it also is used along with astragalus and Chinese dogwood fruit to control excess sweating, night sweats, and menopausal sweating. Schisandra frequently is used when the kidneys are not grasping the lung Qi. In Chinese medical theory, the kidneys help the lungs to inhale fully. When the kidneys are weak, the person has difficulty taking a full breath. Because of its anti-inflammatory and anti-asthmatic effects, Schisandra fruit is beneficial for people who have asthma with wheezing, wet coughs, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder. It also calms the Shen and is effective for people with stress-induced palpitations, deficient insomnia, anxiety, and bad dreams.
