Liver + Kidney Tonic | Hormone Balancer | Adaptogenic
Composed of nature’s finest adaptogenic remedies, Schisandra chinensis.
Schisandra berry is one of the queen’s within tonic herbalism, as she embodies the unique trait of containing the 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 TCM the five flavors directly relate to its ability to target the five yin organs, such as 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 HPA axis, Hypothalamus – Pituitary – Adrenal axis, along with the sympatho-adrenal 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 system, which directly influences our mood, emotional body, perception and more.
