Schisandra berry, or Fructus Schisandrae, is an herb traditionally used for treating a cough or supporting the kidneys. It is considered an adaptogen, meaning that it helps the body to adapt to stress. Schisandra is commonly known for improving liver function by stimulating enzymes and promoting liver cell growth, making it a beneficial herb for treating Hep C.
