Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) is a woody vine which contains numerous clusters of tiny, bright red berries. Schisandra berries have been used medicinally in traditional Chinese medicine. In traditional Asian medicine, Schizandra is used as a tonic or adaptogen to balance bodily functions and improve the body's response to stress.
Holistic vets sometimes use Schisandra supplements to support liver function by stimulating liver enzymes.
Schisandra supplements are available in capsules, powder and liquid extracts.
