Schisandra for the cardiovascular system

Studies prove that schisandra is able to remove metabolic products from the blood vessels and promotes their longevity.

The angiologist of the University of Middlesex, Dr. Andrew Chevallier, reports on schisandra that it contains flavonoids, which are able to strengthen the health and patency of blood vessels specifically. A good circulation without deposits in the blood vessels is a crucial part of our cardiovascular health.

Dr. Michael Rützler, internist and researcher in Cambridge, says, “The cleansing effect of the Wu Wei Zi berry is undeniable. I was able to observe it myself in many cases. Plaques and metabolic products could be removed measurably within 10 to 12 weeks. … It ensures that the brain is supplied with blood and oxygen down to the smallest blood vessels, which promotes the brain’s ability to regenerate constantly.”

Tip: combine with Omega-3 fatty acids for more vascular protection

Lignans from schisandra are able to protect the liver

Up to now, the ingredient research of schisandra mainly focussed on the lignans, which are said to have liver-protecting effects. Thirty different lignans could be identified, which contribute to this effect.

Balancing for the nervous system

Schisandra has a stimulating effect on the nervous system, strengthens the reflexes and promotes clear thinking. The fruits are supposed to help with feelings of dejection, lower the irritability and reduce forgetfulness.

Schisandra is an adaptogen

Similar to ginseng, schisandra has adaptogenic properties and helps the body to adapt during tense times.

Significance for the kidney function

Schisandra stimulates the activity of the adrenal cortex and therefore increases the energy generation.
It can be of importance for the kidney function and help the body to maintain the fluid balance. Schisandra is popular when it comes to night sweats, thirst and frequent urination.


Schisandra is one of the most popular tonic herbs and has a strengthening and supporting effect on many different organs.


The most common use of schisandra is probably as a sexual tonic for men and women. It is said to promote the secretion of bodily fluids and to improve the male endurance.


Although schisandra has stimulating effects, it is used in the TMC to soothe the spirit and calm the heart. It can be consumed to help with poor or restless sleep, which is a good example for the contradictory effects of adaptogenic herbs.

Respiratory tract

Schisandra is a popular herb for a healthy and free breathing.
