What is Schizandra Berry?
Schizandra is a woody climbing vine which fruits small red edible berries. It commonly grows in forests throughout China and Eastern Russia. Our schizandra berries are sourced from the pristine northern regions of China where some the most powerful species are known to grow. We carefully transform ten pounds of schizandra berries into one pound of highly concentrated powder which is ready to use.
What Are the Health Benefits Of Schizandra Berry?
Schizandra berry is a potent adaptogen which has been used for thousands of years, and it is said to be one of the 50 fundamental herbs according to the book, La Médecine Chinoise Par Les Plantes, by Ming Wong. It is one of the most complete herbs, and it possesses all five natural flavours: sour, sweet, salty, bitter and spicy.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is said that schizandra can help to "calm the heart and quieten the spirit". Schizandra is believed to improve concentration and alertness and help reduce anxiety, plus it contains a natural astringent which can protect the skin. In the Vitamin and Mineral Encyclopedia, Dr. Sheldon Saul Hendler suggests schizandra berries may also be able to gently cleanse and support the functioning of the liver by stimulating enzymes and promoting natural cell growth.

"Schizandra has been one of my all-time favourite herbs since using it half a year ago. After looking for an easy alternative to preparing tea made from dried schizandra berries, I stumbled upon the Hybrid Herbs extract and have been using it since. My favourite thing about Schizandra is its health benefits, there are so many of them. Here are the ones I enjoy and noticed the most
- It's very versatile. I can take it in the morning and it will give me an energy boost throughout the day, and if I take it at night it calms me and sets me into a restful slumber
- It helps with focus. As a college student, I use Schizandra as a study aid, and it helps me stay focused and puts me in the mood to get my work done.
- After a couple of months, my skin has improved unimaginably. I didn't even have bad skin to begin with, but now it's very supple and smooth, and has this glow that i've never had before. This was a bonus benefit that I really was not expecting.
- Lastly, I love to use Schizandra as a pre-workout at the gym. It has a subtle energising effect and increases my stamina throughout my workouts and there's no crash like after drinking too much caffeine.
The Schizandra extract is so wonderful, thank you!"
My favourite herb out of all

This product is fantastic and tastes so beautiful. I use it on cereals, porridge and in smoothies and the flavour is divine :) my skin has improved since using this and I love the fact that it aids the liver-living in London our bodies receive a battering even though I am super healthy. However using this product gives me confidence that my liver is getting a good cleanse.
Again, another high quality product from the lovely staff at hybrid herbs. Thank you so much.
Noticeable improvements since I began taking this...

I was told about Schizandra berry by an American friend, who recommended it as a natural mood stabiliser. I have lived with depression and a range of other mental health issues for 4 years and living in the UK, support for this can be expensive or difficult to get hold of. I've also never wanted to take meds for my condition, and mood stabilisers in the UK are only available from a psychiatrist, who are a bit like mythical creatures these days in that they are nigh impossible to see. Following a bad few weeks, my friend recommended schizandra and shilajit and I found Hybrid Herbs as a retailer of these in the UK. I have now been taking the shizandra berry in my tea and coffee for 5 weeks on a daily basis, and would definitely testify to have had some noticeable and significant improvements in my overall mental wellbeing. I have not noticed an improvement in my skin unfortunately, so cannot testify to that, but 100% I feel that my moods are more balanced, I am more relaxed and content in my own company, and even some days feel a genuine sense of happiness. For someone who has lived for 4 years under a black cloud, this is quite substantial. Obviously I cannot tie the schizandra directly with my improved sense of wellbeing beyond a reasonable doubt, but the two changes in me have coincided and I have no hesitation in recommending this product to other people who suffer with unstable moods, anxiety, or depression. I have also found that I am sleeping extremely well, and wouldn't be surprised if the shizandra is also helping me out there.
It is of a great relief to me to feel more relaxed and even feel a genuine optimism for the future and the life I can create for myself. I do think that schizandra has helped in this sense in improving my hormones, the regulation of my emotions, and the stabilisation of my moods. It is a bonus to think of how else it is helping my body on the inside and the day-to-day function of my organs. I feel overall more healthy and upbeat and positive about the year to come, which is something I do not feel very often. I know this is a long-winded review but I am just so excited about how this has helped me so far, and I am looking forward to continuing to take this in my tea for the next several months to see if the effects are maintained. It's worth noting that I also eat a mostly healthy diet (not perfect, and still eat a lot of sugar unfortunately), take vitamin and mineral supplements (just from my local supermarket brand), and try to exercise 2-3 times a week for one hour each time. I think these things combined, with the schizandra berry, have really contributed to my newfound sense of peace and quiet from the usual hostile environment of my mind. I have no qualms at all in recommending schizandra as a natural and completely safe mood stabiliser.
