Schisandra : In chinese medicine it's called Wuweizi (Five-Flavored Seed). This is because it's bark and flesh are mixtures of sweet, sour and salty flavors and its kernel tastes pungent, bitter and salty hence five flavors in one herb. It is used for asthma and cough, excessive perspiration, night sweats, diarrhea, seminal emission and vaginal bleeding.
I was having a very heavy period and as soon as I had a cup of tea the bleeding was minimal. You can purchase instant schisandra online as a tea to drink. Many women use this tea in China for menopause and PMS.
