About Schisandra: Many vines of Schisandra ardently climb the cedar arbor in Avena's central biodynamic garden and outlying fences, dazzling and delighting us with their tart and juicy red berries. We hand harvest these ripe berries in the fall and immediately tincture them in organic alcohol. The red berries support healthy function of the liver and kidneys and strengthen the cardiovascular, nervous, and respiratory systems. The Heart in Traditional Chinese Medicine is said to house the Spirit, Shen, one’s Divine nature. Schisandra holds the heart steady so one’s inner light can truly shine.
