The Schisandraceae family includes over 25 different plants. Indigenous to North-Eastern China, Russia, Japan and the Korean peninsula. Schisandra is a woody, climbing vine that reaches up to eight metres in height. The fruiting bodies, used medicinally, are a deep shade of red and are globular, arranged in a long ‘spike’ and growing between five to eight millimetres in diameter.
Historically, the tiny red fruits of schisandra have been highly regarded by traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).[2,3] The Chinese name, ‘wu wei xi’, can be translated as ‘five flavour fruit’, in reference to the peculiar taste of schisandra berries that includes salty, sweet, sour, bitter and pungent flavours. In accordance with the energetic system within TCM, this implies that the herb nourishes all five elements, all three treasures and all 12 meridians. It is also utilised as a kidney-lung tonic to restore qi.[3,4]
