Schizandra Berry Powdered Extract
+ THE BODY BERRY +
While the ancient lore of this tonic herb is great, its incredible adaptogenic properties are only now being recognised by Western scientists who note its capacity to stabilise the nervous system, enhance brain function, improve coordination and boost the immune system (by stimulating the production of lymphocytes and interferon). At 2008 study by the Swedish Healthy Research Institute that reviewed all published research noted:
"The phytoadaptogen exerts an effect on the central nervous, sympathetic, endocrine, immune, respiratory, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal systems, on the development of experimental atherosclerosis, on blood sugar and acid-base balance, and on uterus myotonic activity. Studies on isolated organs, tissues, cells and enzymes have revealed that Schizandra preparations exhibit strong antioxidant activities and affect smooth muscles, arachidonic acid release, biosynthesis of leukotriene B(4) in leukocytes, platelet activating factor activity, carbohydrate-phosphorus metabolism, the formation of heat shock protein and polyamines, tissue respiration and oxygen consumption, and the tolerance of an organism to oxygen intoxication. In healthy subjects, Schizandra increases endurance and accuracy of movement, mental performance and working capacity, and generates alterations in the basal levels of nitric oxide and cortisol in blood and saliva with subsequent effects on the blood cells, vessels and CNS."
