Overview - Schizandra is a woody vine native to China. It can reach a height of 25 feet. There are both male and female plants.

The proprietary process allows us to preserve it's vibrant color, aromatic essentials, energetic signatures, and flavor profile. This American grown schizandra is truly a benchmark in the herbal product world and is quickly gaining international recognition.
