Schisandra Quality Issues

Schisandra is a well known Chinese herb, however it is not well known that two species of Schisandra are used in TCM, the phytochemical profile of each being very different. Schisandra chinensis (northern Schisandra) is the preferred species in TCM and by Western professionals. It contains compounds called schisandrins (schisandrin, gomisin A, deoxyschisandrin, gomisin N and wuweizizu C) which are believed responsible for the therapeutic effects. Southern Schisandra, Schisandra spenanthera, (see Product X in the trace) is considered inferior due to lower levels of schisandrins, however it is often used interchangeably with Schisandra chinensis. Manufacturers therefore need to be very careful to avoid substitution with Schisandra spenanthera. The species are readily distinguishable morphologically and by HPLC. MediHerb routinely uses HPLC to ensure the correct identity and guarantee consistent levels of schisandrins.
