Schizandra Fruit – Anti-aging elixir
Schizandra (Schisandra chinensis) is a small fruit that grows on vines in the remote
pristine mountains in northern China (Changbai Mountain, Manchuria), Korea,
Siberia, Russia and Scandinavia. This bright red fruit is a famous tonic historically
used as a longevity herb and as a superior adaptogenic herb. Schizandra is one of
the most important supertonic herbs and is widely used in Asia and more recently
in the West. It is a wonderful adaptogenic herb historically consumed by Taoists and
Chinese royalty, ultimately for similar reasons – to increase their “inner power” and
to preserve their youth. It is one of the few herbs that contain all “three treasures”
–Jing, Qi and Shen – in abundance. All Taoists throughout Chinese history have
consumed Schizandra. Schizandra is considered to be a youth preserving and deeply
empowering herb. It is called the “quintessence of Chinese tonic herbs.”
Our Schizandra is collected in the wild from the pristine forest of Changbai Mountain
in Manchuria, hundreds of miles away from any source of pollution. The
Schizandra naturally ripens in the old forest before being collected, fully ripe and at
the height of flavor and efficacy. This is the best Schizandra in the world.
Until now however, it has been an inconvenient herb to consume. In spite of the
fact that Schizandra has a naturally wonderful, unique flavor it has only been sold in
capsules and in combination with other herbs like Ginseng. Dragon Herbs FITT™
sticks have changed this. Now everyone can enjoy the amazing flavor, aroma and
benefits of Schizandra, just as it tastes freshly picked from a wild mountain vine.
Dragon Herbs Schizandra granules are quite unique – there is nothing like it on the market in America today.
Schizandra is a superior tonic herb that has many significant health benefits. Schizandra is renowned as a youth preserving herb and is
considered to be a superb beauty tonic. It has been used for centuries by Asian royalty to make the skin soft, moist and radiant. It is also
considered to be a powerful tonic to the brain and mind, and is believed in China to improve memory and concentration. It has been demonstrated
that human intellectual activity can be enhanced and work efficiency increased by consuming Schizandra. It is used in Scandinavian
countries to improve mental and physical energy. Russian researchers have shown it to be a powerful adaptogenic agent, helping the body
and mind cope with stress without harming the body.
Schizandra is said to be an excellent sexual tonic when consumed regularly. It is reputed to help produce abundant sexual fluids, increase
sexual endurance and to strengthen the whole body. It was used by female Chinese royalty for that purpose and has been a staple in the
Taoist sexual formulations for both men and women for over 2,000 years.
The fruit, which is the part used, is rich in very potent antioxidant compounds. These antioxidants protect and detoxify the body. The most
studied is Schisandrin B which has many biologically important health benefits. It is highly protective to the liver, and also helps protect the
heart, brain and kidneys. Schizandrin B, has significant anti-inflammatory action. Inflammation is now believed to be a central cause of aging.
It also helps protect the thymus gland.
As a liver tonic, Schizandra is extremely effective at purifying the blood and helping to eliminate toxins from the body without causing any side
effects. Schizandra contains dozens of lignins that help remove toxins from the liver and then from the body. It aids in both phase I and phase
II toxin removal from the body, and is thus a quintessential body purifying agent because it rids the body of dangerous toxins without causing
any side effects.
Schizandra is renowned as a beauty tonic. It has been used for centuries to make the skin soft, moist and radiant, and to slow down aging of
the skin. For this reason, it was served for generations as the main ingredient in a tonic tea at the Qing Dynasty Imperial Palace. Schizandra
protects against UVB induced skin damage.
Taoists use Schizandra as a spiritual cleansing and tonifying herb. Many masters recommend consuming freshly collected, dried raw Schizandra
for 100 days as a way to change the energy in the organs and meridians. With FITT™, this is easy. The fresh Schizandra fruit has been
extracted without cooking. Consuming one stick a day for 100 days can have a life changing effect.
