Delicious
(NaturalNews) Forget the morning cup of java -- try schizandra instead. This tiny fruit will provide clarity and energy without toxic and unnerving side effects. A powerful berry, schizandra combats everything from aging to nervous exhaustion to poor libido. Treasured by Asian cultures for centuries, schizandra is an outstanding adaptogenic herb that can encourage a spring in your step and a sparkle in your eye.

A small, brilliantly red berry, schizandra is part of the magnolia family. It is native to China, Japan and Korea as well as Russia. Traditionally, it has been used to foster mental acuity and agelessness. Schizandra is also known for its libido enriching properties. A true adaptogen, it is safe, non-toxic and reduces stress while providing stable energy. Taoist masters heartily recommend schizandra to their students due to the belief that it is one of the few herbs that contains all three treasures (the energies of Essence, Vitality and Spirit). They feel anyone working with internal energy could benefit greatly from the berry.

This is not a fruit to munch on like goji or acai, however. Schizandra has five flavor characteristics -- sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent. It isn't exactly the type of berry enjoyed for its delicious taste. Used frequently in Chinese soups and occasionally juiced, schizandra is specifically consumed as a medicinal tonic to boost health and vitality.

Improve performance, curtail fatigue and spark libido

Chinese athletes often use schizandra during training for good reason -- it reduces fatigue while improving physical power. A significant increase in the performance and stamina of gymnasts, long distance runners and competitive athletes was found during human testing of the berry.

Physical strength is not the only benefit of schizandra, the mind is sharpened too. Several studies confirm schizandra enhances concentration and memory, increases accuracy and quality of work while reducing mental fatigue. Doctors, students, soldiers and others have all shown marked mental improvement from schizandra use.

Sexual health is also fortified. Schizandra is said to "help produce abundant sexual fluids, increase sexual endurance and to strengthen the whole body," according to The Journal of Traditional Eastern Health & Fitness. When consumed regularly, it is an exceptional and reliable tonic.

Schizandra is considered a highly protective medicinal plant. It has remarkable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics, thereby supporting healthy cellular function. Inhibiting the aging process and creating moist, radiant skin is yet another benefit. The liver is protected by this berry as well. In over 500 cases, the liver shielding properties of schizandra were demonstrated in the treatment of hepatitis.

Schizandra is a wonderful fruit that packs a powerful punch. If you are seeking exceptional mental clarity, buoyant energy or a youthful glow, use schizandra for 100 consecutive days. It very well may provide a much needed boost to your life.
