The meaning behind the name. This Oxymel features 5 berries: Schisandra Berry, Elderberry, Hawthorne Berry, Blackberry leaf and Raspberry Leaf.
Schisandra holds five distinct flavor properties: bitter, sweet, sour, salty and hot and this is why schisandra is sometimes called “the five-flavored berry.” Beyond just how it tastes, its flavor components are important for understanding the way it works. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, schisandra’s power comes from having properties from all five elements which means it works in multiple “meridians” within the body to restore internal balance and health.
It impacts nearly every organ system within the human body (what TCM refers to as the 12 “meridians”), it has dozens of uses and benefits. TCM views schisandra as an herb that helps balance all three “treasures” within the body: jing, shen and chi.
