FIVE FLAVOUR BERRY
Do you know that… schisandra chinensis in Chinese is called “wǔ wèi zi”, which means “five flavour berry”. The fruit cover is sweet, the fruit flesh sour, the seeds are bitter and tart, and during storage the fruit becomes more salty. In natural conditions it occurs mainly in China, but also in Russia. Both fruits and seeds are used. Fruits are rich in sugars, organic acids (citric, malic and tartaric), flavonoids, catechins, anthocyanins, tannins, essential oils and vitamin C. However, seeds contain schizandrin, schizadrol (substances with toning and strengthening effects), vitamin E and oil substances. Moreover, in five flavour berry fruits were found also carbohydrates, proteins, fatty acids, macro and micro elements: calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, aluminium, tin, iron, manganese, cobalt, however no glycosides nor alkaloids were found. Particular attention is to be given to schizandrin, which supports our sight. An interesting fact is that during World War II, Soviet airman were given five flavour berry extracts right before their night flying, since they made their visual acuity much better.
