Schisandra Rose Elixir
Composed of nature’s finest adaptogenic remedies, this elixir, based on the Schisandra berry (Schisandra chinensis), is one of the queens of tonic herbalism, embodying the berry’s unique trait of containing five flavors. In traditional Chinese medicine, flavors are seen as energetic signatures within a plant, demonstrating its distinct healing traits. The five flavors it contains are sweet, bitter, salty, sour, and pungent, directly signaling its all-encompassing and highly medicinal nature. In traditional Chinese medicine, the five flavors directly relate to its ability to target the five yin organs: Liver, Lungs, Heart, Kidneys, and Spleen.
One of Schisandra’s key elements is its adaptogenic nature. Adaptogens are herbs that directly target the endocrine system, encompassing the infamous Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal axis, along with the sympathoadrenal system (our fight or flight response). In other words, it’s a masterful herb that protects and helps cope against many types of stress and the oxidative damage on a biological, mental and emotional level. Adaptogens also target our hormonal and limbic systems, which directly influence our moods, emotional state, and perception.
