Schisandra Berry is one of the few adaptogens that is not a mushroom or a root. This powerful berry aka Wu Wei Zi or “five flavors” contains all five tastes according to Chinese medicine: sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty.
Like all adaptogens, Schisandra enhances the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems. Because it contains all five tastes, it benefits the five Yin organs: the liver, kidneys, heart, lungs, and spleen.
