In Chinese herbalism, all herbs contain one or several of the 5 flavors: sweet, sour, spicy (pungent), salty and bitter.
The five flavors represent different functions of the human body. The five flavors also are attracted to and nourish different organs. Sourness enters the Liver, bitterness enters the Heart, sweetness enters the Spleen, spiciness enters the Lungs and saltiness enters the Kidneys. It is ideal to consume all five flavors in our daily diet to maintain internal balance and proper organ nourishment.
Schizandra is the only herb that contains all five flavors. The very name of Schizandra in Chinese, Wu Wei Zi, means “Five Flavors Fruit.” Schizandra has earned a reputation as the “quintessential tonic herb” because it can benefit all five primary organs and nurtures all five Elemental Energies of the human body in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM): Wood (Liver), Fire (Heart), Earth (Spleen), Metal (Lungs) and Water (Kidneys).
Schizandra also supplies energy to all 12 energy meridians, making it a complete body tonic. To top it off, Schizandra tonifies all 3 Treasures, Jing, Qi and Shen.
Schizandra is famous in the Far East for promoting beauty, intelligence, sexual vitality, wisdom, endurance and powerful lungs. Schizandra is one of the safest and most effective cleansing herbs in the world, and is especially protective of the liver, skin and brain.
Schizandra can be consumed daily throughout one’s lifetime as an anti-aging herb and to promote longevity.*
