I first read about the benefits of schizandra in Ron Teaguarden’s book The Ancient Wisdom of the Chinese Tonic Herbs.
‘Schizandra is “the herb that does it all.” It develops and protects the primary energies of life. Schizandra, known as the “quintessence of Chinese tonic herbs,” supports vitality and beauty when used regularly for some time. It is said to promote beautiful skin. Schizandra is said to help purify the blood, support the mind, help maintain a strong memory, and help maintain sexual energy and sexual functions in both men and women.’
The Benefits of Schizandra
Schizandra has some of the following benefits:
-Increases moisture in the skin to reduce wrinkles
-Clear, bright eye whites
-Increases sexual fluids and sensitivity during sex
-Helps with phase 2 liver detoxification
You can see why schizandra is one of my most-recommended tonic herbs. We wrote another article that goes into detail about the benefits of schizandra. Learn more about the benefits here.
Take The Challenge
Ron Teaguarden’s mentor, a Taoist tonic herb master, was the one who taught that to experience the life-transforming benefits of taking schizandra for 100 consecutive days.
To get the benefits of schizandra, the herb master recommended 2 teaspoons of the fresh berries daily. Instead of the fresh berries, you can purchase freeze-dried berry powder. I can vouch for the quality of the powder from New Earth Organics. It’s organically grown in the United States and its potency allows you to take only 1-½ teaspoons for a significant benefit.
In addition, the herb master said that after 100 days schizandra will bestow a gift.
With this information in my mind, I gathered people who were interested in taking the challenge and I recorded some of their results. I was so impressed with the results that I continue to recommend schizandra to my private clients who are working towards hormone balance. Note that schizandra is not appropriate during pregnancy.
When I took the challenge personally, I had multiple people comment on how clear my eyes were, which is an indication of good liver function.
Here are the results (or the gifts) that other ‘challengers’ reported:
-Eliminates hot flashes
-Improves eyesight (ability to read fine print again!)
-More energy during the day
-Increases vaginal fluids
-Eliminates sugar cravings
… and much more.
