Beauty and sex tonic
Moistens and protects the skin
Ideal for: Everyone. This is a beauty, sexual health, and longevity tonic anyone can benefit from taking.
Schisandra is a Three Treasure tonic herb which has a long history of use as a beauty tonic, renowned for its ability to nurture soft and radiant skin.
In its capacity of tonifying the Yin of the Lungs, Schisandra enhances the Lungs' function of dispersing fluids to nourish the skin and keep it hydrated.
As a sexual tonic, it increases fluids and sensitivity in woman, and has an astringing quality for male endurance.
The significance of this has to do with the therapeutic range of this herb. Its sourness and saltiness enter the Liver and also enriches the Yin of the Kidneys. The bitter and acrid flavors enter the Heart and tonifies the Lungs. Finally, the sweet flavor enters the Spleen and augments its energy. So, this incredible herb is able to tonify the Yin of all five Yin organs of the body.
The more pronounced flavor of Schisandra is sour, and as such, its ability to stabilize the primal Qi of the Kidneys is more pronounced.
It also is a powerful Liver tonic and helps to keep the Liver's detoxifying function running smoothly.
If there is a deficiency of Yin and Blood in the body, a person may experience what we commonly call a "Shen disturbance." One of Schisandra's many functions is that of calming the Shen and soothing the Heart.
