Schizandra has long been revered in Traditional Asian Medicine as Wu Wei Zi or the “fivetaste” berry. This adaptogen has been prized as a rejuvenating longevity tonic for centuries. Organic Traditions Schizandra berries are harvested at the peak of vibrancy and immediately processed to create a deep red powder. This 6:1 whole berry, full spectrum concentrate is made from a proprietary low temperature drying process to ensure optimal nutrient, enzyme and antioxidant integrity not to mention an incredible, intense berry taste. Between six and seven pounds of Certified Organic Schizandra berries are used to make one pound of powder.

Grown on mineral rich, nutrient dense soil, these are the cleanest, most vibrant Schizandra berries bursting with beneficial bioactive nutrients. There are no fillers, flavours, maltodextrin, binders, flowing agents or sweeteners added, just pure concentrated Schizandra with the richest, freshest taste.
