Schisandra nourishes what is called The Three Treasures to sustaining human life: Jing (essence), Qi (chi, or life energy) and Shen (spirit); and it opens the meridians to allow for the flow of Qi.
Schisandra is classified as an adaptogen, which means that it helps the body adapt to stress, produces a normalizing effect on the workings of the body, and does not disrupt normal body functions. Considered an adaptogenic sedative, schisandra allows the system to cope with both internal and external stressors, and can sometimes provide a general mood-elevating effect. It supports concentration and alertness and increases mental efficiency and general strength. Schisandra has been used as a tonic for the treatment of mild depression, irritability and memory loss. It is often combined with Rhodiola (R. rosea) and Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus) as a super-adaptogenic trio. Considered anti-viral in nature, schisandra is traditionally indicated for weak lungs, liver and digestion and for general coughs, and it has been used for respiratory infections and non-specific pneumonia.
