Schisandra chinensis fruit has been traditionally used as a stimulating agent in cases of physical exhaustion, and to prevent fatigue. Anti-fatigue properties of Schisandra chinensis have been recognised by official medicine of the USSR in the early 1960′s. However, these studies were not controlled. Controlled animal studies show significantly increased time to exhaustion. Schisandra chinensis is also added to sport supplements as a cortisol suppressant. However, reported effects are minor. Other benefits of Schisandra chinensis may include stimulation of liver regeneration, prevention of liver injuries and hepatocarcinogenesis inhibition as well as lipid peroxidation.
