Here’s the thing, though. Schisandra berries aren’t all that common in the states (yet), but they’re so popular in Asia that you can find them in Starbucks in Seoul! We’re just catching on over here.
So, what are Schisandra Berries?
Schisandra berries grow in bright red clusters and are dried before they’re consumed. They are actually an adaptogen, which is rare for a berry, and speaks to their variety of powerful benefits. They’re called “wu wei zi” in Chinese Medicine, meaning the fruit of five flavors. These five flavors are referring to the five major tastes—sour, salty, bitter, sweet and pungent. Put simply, this means that Schisandra is widely beneficial to many different systems in the body.
