Schisandra helps protect the liver from toxic damage. It is used as an “adaptogen” for increasing resistance to disease and stress, increasing energy, and increasing physical performance and endurance.

Your LIVER –

The liver is the body’s largest internal organ. The liver’s main job is to filter toxins from the blood coming from the digestive tract, before passing it to the rest of the body. It also helps with digestion and manufactures and stores nutrients. It is very important that it is always functioning well.

Main functions of the liver:

  • It makes many of the chemicals required by the body to function normally,
  • It breaks down and detoxifies substances in the body, and
  • It acts as a storage unit.

How can Schisandra help the LIVER?

The components in schisandra appear to protect the liver from damage and improve the liver function by stimulating and activating the enzymes (proteins that speed up biochemical reactions) in the liver and promoting liver cell growth. (1)

The major constituents in schisandra are lignans (schizandrin, deoxyschizandrin, gomisins, and pregomisin) found in the seeds of the fruit. Lignans trigger the liver to produce glutathione, which is an important antioxidant with an important part in the liver’s detoxification process.

 

Modern Chinese research suggests these lignans have a protective effect on the liver and an immunomodulating effect. Two human trials completed in China (one double-blind and the other preliminary) have shown that schisandra may help people with chronic viral hepatitis. Schisandra lignans appear to protect the liver by activating the enzymes in liver cells that produce glutathione, an important antioxidant substance.

 

It is because of all this that schisandra helps alleviate various liver ailments like fatty liver, chronic hepatitis and other types of liver disease. In addition to this, as schisandra is used as an adaptogen it helps balance the body’s organs and functions and, in the process, increases body resistance to stress.

The regular consumption of schisandra helps protect the liver from toxic damage, stimulates the regrowth of liver cells while improving liver function. CHEMregen is a perfect way to obtain the benefits of Schisandra in easy to ingest tablets. Click HERE for more information.
