What is Schisandra Extract Schisandrins?

Schisandra is a medicinal berry that has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Schisandra fruit is the herb that does it all. Chinese emperors, elitists, and, Taoist masters used schisandra along with other ancient Chinese herbs like goji berry, reishi mushroom, and ginseng. Historically, schisandra health benefits were used to balance yin and yang. The plant is said to calm the heart and quiet the spirit by having a positive effect on the kidneys, liver, brain, and lungs.

Schisandra gained recognition as an adaptogenic tonic in Russia in the 1960s. Adaptogenic herbs help the body respond to stress; normalize physiological functions; increase energy, physical performance, and endurance; and recharge your adrenal glands. As a result, schisandra helps prevent adrenal fatigue. However, that is just one of the many health benefits of schisandra.

Health Benefits of Schisandra Extract Schisandrins

Although schisandra is best known as for boosting adrenal and liver function, it is also used as a powerful brain tonic to relieve stress, improve concentration, focus, mental energy, and memory. It may also support hormonal balance, nourish the skin, and improve digestive symptoms, especially when these issues are linked to liver transplants. The following are five reported schisandra health benefits.

1. May Help Relieve Stress
As an adaptogenic herb, schisandra may improve the body’s ability to deal with physical and psychological stress through balancing hormone levels. Schisandra may also improve resistance to emotional trauma, toxin exposure, anxiety, mental illness, and mental fatigue. A study published in the journal Drug Target Insights in 2007 suggested that the inhibitory effects of the adaptogens schisandra and rhodiola make them natural antidepressants that positively affect the hormones and brain function when under stress. Adaptogens also help prevent colds, flu, and chronic sinusitis.

2. May Reduce Inflammation
The high concentration of antioxidant compounds in schisandra could potentially help reduce inflammatory responses and fight free radical damage. As a result, schisandra may prevent heart diseases like atherosclerosis, balance blood sugar and treat diabetes, and protect against cancer. In regards to cancer prevention, active lignans from schisandra like schisandrin have been shown to have chemo-protective effects. Leukocytes promote inflammation, and studies suggest schisandra helps control the release of leukocytes, while also improving the body’s ability to repair tissue.

3. Improves Digestion and Liver Function
A lot of research focuses on schisandra for liver function and its effects on production of various liver detoxifying enzymes. Liver health is linked to strong immunity; therefore, schisandra may protect against indigestion, infections, and various gastrointestinal disorders. A study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research in 2013 showed that patients experienced improved liver function and relief from fatty liver disease when sesamin was mixed with schisandra fruit extract. Studies also indicate that schisandra could treat chronic hepatitis and benefit patients after a liver transplant.

4. May Promote Mental Performance
Improving mental clarity and performance is one of the oldest uses of schisandra. It has been used for centuries in Russia to promote stamina and in traditional Chinese medicine to improve concentration, memory, motivation, and mental health. Caffeine can cause restlessness, nervousness, and an irregular heart beat. Schisandra on the other hand has the opposite effect of caffeine, and it can make you feel calmer while fighting fatigue. A study published in the Journal of Ethnopharmacology in 2013 suggested that schisandra fruit extract may be useful in the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Studies also link schisandra consumption and protection against psychiatric and neurological disorders like depression, neurosis, anxiety, schizophrenia, and alcoholism.

5. May Protect the Skin
Schisandra may work as a beauty tonic capable of protecting the skin, including from sun or wind exposure, dermatitis, allergic reactions, toxin accumulation, and environmental stress. The anti-inflammatory effects in schisandra make it possible to treat skin problems. In one study published in the journal Molecular Medicine Reports in 2015, researchers found that schisandra extract inhibits ear swelling through the reduction of the inflammatory skin disorder markers: immune cell filtration, skin dermatitis, and cytokine production.
