Schizandra is also an adaptogen widely used in the traditional medicine of both China and Russia, where it is called " limonnik " according to the sour taste of berries. In the TČM, the Chinese schisandra ( Schisandra chinensis ) and Schizandra klinovita ( Schisandra sphenanthera ) are the most used. The fruits of the Chinese are called u-wei-dz , the fruits of five flavors, because they combine all five basic "tastes" of the magical TČM system (salty, sweet, sour, bitter and spicy). According to TČM, therefore, the fetus of schizandas has a perfectly balanced yin and yang component, explaining its adaptogenic effects.
Schizandra is strongly encouraging . Among its active substances are the most important schisandrins (eg schisandrin A and C), which contain up to 20% dry weight. In addition, the fetus of the schizander contains triterpenoids, lignans, flavonoids, glycosides, antioxidant vitamins C and E and up to 3% essential oil responsible for a typical fragrance. It is therefore a natural vitamin and adaptive bomb. Because information on the effects of Schizander could be interpreted as a " health claim " under Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and Council, please inform others about the effects of this amazing crop.
Decorate the fruits of the schizander with about 5 minutes of boiling 2-5 grams (1-2 tablespoons) of dried fruit in 200ml of water. Preferably, the schizander can be added to black or green tea, where it will replace lemon (hence the Russian name limonnik). Schizandra fruit can also be used in meals wherever it does not bother with its sour taste or consume dry.
Schizander can be dosed as other adaptogenic crops (for example, butcher's ), but rather somewhat more modest. Usually, 2-5g of dried berries are used for a cup of tea that is drunk 1-3 times a day. Berries can also be consumed in the dried state. Schizandra is best to use as instructed by a physician with a knowledge of phytotherapy or a TČM practitioner.
