About Schizandra: In the fall, small clusters of these colorful red berries hang from the winding vines of this remarkable herb who’s Chinese name “wu-wei-zi”, means five flavored fruit. The first taste of the fresh berry is sour, with the additional sweet, salty, pungent and bitter tastes noted after a few moments. A native fruit from northern China, Russia and parts of Korea, Schisandra has been a revered tonic used to help with fatigue and to help with the effects of stress. Calming to the mind while strengthening to the body, this beautiful berry has much to offer.
