Schizandra is an extremely potent adaptogen and antioxidant which has the power to regulate almost any bodily system. In the 1940’s, it was used by Russian pilots to help them cope with the lack of oxygen and stress of high altitudes. In addition to these benefits, it also helps with dryness of the mouth, chronic thirst, neurasthenia, depression, poor appetite, profuse / night sweating, chronic diarrhea, frequent urination, nocturnal emissions, leucorrhea, PMS, premature ejaculation, arteriosclerosis, chronic cough, and astigmatism. Schizandra is also a CYP3A4 inhibitor, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, and MAO-B inhibitor.
