In this series we look at the ingredients in our Perfect Liver Detox Support supplement. If you are new to detox programs, you can start with our article on the Dangers of Toxins.

Schisandra Berry (Schisandra Chinensis)

The tiny, bright red berries of the Schisandra chinensis plant are used in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic, an anti-aging herb, and to suppress cough. Schisandra berry has been historically used as an adaptogenic herb (helping the body to adapt to stress) for its ability to increase resistance to stress and disease, increase energy, improve physical performance, and build strength and endurance.

Schisandra:

  • Promotes phase 1 and phase 2 liver detoxification pathways
  • Promotes regeneration of liver tissue that has been damaged by alcohol or hepatitis
  • Protects the liver from toxins by promoting the production of the antioxidant glutathione
  • Supports the immune system
  • Promotes skin health
  • Promotes respiratory health
  • Supports cardiovascular health

How Much Schisandra Berry Is in Perfect Liver Detox Support?

Perfect Liver Detox Support contains 100mg of Schisandra Berry per serving and it is recommended to take 2-3 servings per day (200-300mg in a daily dose).

Why We Include This Dosage of Schisandra Berry

Schisandra Berry can safely be taken in doses up to eight grams a day. 100 mg per serving is a common dose used in liver formulas to offer adjunctive support in combination formulas.
