AHPA’s 40 Herbs We Love – No. 25: Schisandra (with love from Nuherbs)

October 27, 2022

AHPA's 40th anniversary celebrations continue with our showcase of the twenty-fifth of many beloved herbs at the heart of our robust industry and vibrant community.

No. 25: Schisandra (Schisandra chinensis)

Schisandra (Wu Wei Zi) is a unique herb, whose flavor will fill you with wonder. How can a fruit have all 5 flavors? Sweet, salty, bitter, pungent, and sour.

As one of the 50 foundational herbs of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), schisandra's health benefits have been known for generations. It's one of the few herbs in TCM considered a tonic herb that can be used by itself long term for overall well-being. So, it should not come as a surprise that this herb is recognized as an adaptogen.

Nuherbs organic schisandra is sourced with great care. We work with our growers to source consistently high-quality dried fruits and collaborate with our wildcrafters to collect them in a sustainable manner at their peak, year after year.

Contact us for your organic schisandra requirements whether it's the whole berry or customized using Nuherbs Bespoke Extracts.
