A note from @The_Smile_Enthuisiast, longevity coach and co-creator of our Medicinal Herbal Blends.
Schizandra berries contain incredible adaptogenic properties-- which means they actually help balance the body’s stress hormones, and normalize organ function during times of mental, emotional, physical, or environmental stress.
This unique ability protects the body from intense stress damage and helps to provide a more resilient endocrine, immune, and central nervous system (this is according to Medical Medium). Another major highlight for this medicinal berry, is that they are phenomenal for sharpening mental focus, enhancing memory skills, and increasing clarity and concentration. I use schizandra berry in my herbal infusions, daily! For me, as I age, I’m looking to keep my noodle sharp, and firing on all cylinders, at all times!
I also use schizandra berry daily to help me stave off macular degeneration (cataracts, happens to run in my family line, thanks to DDT)
Schizandra berries also helped to increase my physical endurance and stamina—I used to be super active from morning till late-night before this whole plandemic. I used to clock in 18,000-20,000 steps every day--not including the hour or 2 of #smileaerobics I would do (almost daily) and my body never felt like it needed a break, or a rest until bedtime.
Did you know schizandra berries are also revered around the world for their ability to provide a clear and glowing complexion that defies the aging process. True story, according to Medical Medium.
So what other sort of symptoms or conditions would I use schizandra berry for--if I wasn’t concerned about the health of my eyes, or energy levels, or about keeping my memory sharp, and my mind focused, or, always striving to have that youthful glow...?
If I struggled with adrenal fatigue, I would for sure make schizandra berry a daily part of my herbal infusions...also, if I struggled with heart disease, or any other cardiovascular issues, or if was struggling with autoimmune disorders; most notably anything neurological—schizandra berry would also be on the front lines with me, during my healing journey!
If I had issues with my blood sugar, I would bring in schizandra berry to help keep my blood sugar stable and balanced. If I had any liver inflammation happening, or if my liver tissues were being destroyed—I would make sure to bring in the schizandra berry as well.
In Chinese medicine, schizandra is often used to soothe respiratory illnesses such as chronic coughs, bronchitis, pneumonia, COPD, and respiratory infections (Which was a bonus for me as well, since I suffered with chronic bronchitis over the years—and have since completely healed from.)
