Highest Quality Schisandra Available…at a Low Price
Every year between August 15th and September 15th in the Massachusetts Connecticut river valley, the floral fragrance of schizandra berries fills the air with its intoxicating aroma as folks hand harvest this herbal treasure of the North East United States. Our schizandra is grown on an organic farm in this valley in the State of Massachusetts.
The incredibly nutrient-rich soil at the schizandra farm is one of the reasons our schizandra has such a potent effect and a vibrant energy to it. Better soil always produces a healthier, happier plant which in turn, creates the potential for the plants healing properties to be fully expressed.
Early in the morning, farm hands start the picking process filling pails full of schizandra berries that have been allowed to mature to peak ripeness. These berries are then hauled to outdoor washing area where they are cleaned in the ultrapure well water (this water has been tested for chemicals and has been found to be extremely pure with only 40ppm total dissolved solids) and sifted by hand in order to remove any debris.
After the berries have been thoroughly washed, they are then put into food grade 5-gallon buckets which are immediately shipped and put into a deep freeze state at -5 degrees below 0.
This locks in the freshness and preserves many of the beneficial qualities that are often lost as the berries are left out for long periods of time or wrapped up in plastic bags and shipped long distances in the heat and humidity in other regions of the world.
The last stage is that we ship the frozen berries to be freeze-dried into its final powdered form.
Freeze-drying is the absolute best way to remove water from the plant material without damaging the nutrients which result in better flavor and a more colorful appearance. This freeze-drying method naturally concentrates the levels to approximately a 5:1 and makes all the valuable nutrients in the seed material bio-available and absorbable. It also helps lock in the natural color, energetic signatures, and unique taste of schisandra.
Most of the schisandra berries and powders available on the market are heavily oxidized. This is because it does not handle transportation and storage so well in its raw state. While it may still be good, it doesn’t contain all the power that fresh schisandra can deliver.
This process from the nutrient-rich soil to the freeze-drying process yields a schizandra powder that is unmatched in potency and vibrancy.
Take the 100 Day Schisandra Challenge
Ron Teeguarden, a premiere tonic herbalist in the West, said that when he first was introduced to the herbs, his teacher told him to take Schisandra for 100 days straight without fail to transform his life. Schizandra was also the favorite herb of this teacher, Taoist Grand Master Sung Jin Park.
Pick up four bags to have more than enough for a minimum dose for one hundred days. One bag contains 30 quarter teaspoon doses (roughly 1 gram each).
Simply take 1/4 teaspoon mixed in water or other liquids for 100 days and notice all the wonderful benefits this single herb can bring. (Note: It doesn’t require 100 days of consumption to get the benefits.)
For more intensive dosage use one-quarter to one-half a teaspoon twice a day.
With this powerful concentrate, taking five pounds of berries to create one pound of the powder, you can taste all the five flavors.
Schisandra is not to be used while pregnant or breastfeeding, or for children. It is also recommend avoiding taking Schisandra when you have a common cold or flu, because of its astringent properties, in holding moisture in the body.
Schisandra can be combined with any other herbs.
