Taiga Gold with Schisandra chinensis contains some groups of active compounds:
How Taiga Gold with Schisandra chinensis works?
Today, we understand the mechanisms responsible for biological activity of Schisandra chinensis. The main active compounds named schisandrins act as follows:
- Activate brain neurotransmitters;
- Reduce stress-induced mediators and mitigate neuroinflammation in brain;
- Exert antioxidant activity and strengthen cell walls;
- Improve blood circulation via induced relaxation of the vessel muscles;
- Activate basic metabolic processes.
All these mechanisms stimulated by schisandrins provide beneficial healthy effects such as:
- Activation of the brain mental activity;
- Improvement of the sleep patterns mitigating insomnia and anxiety;
- Stimulation of physical and psychotic activity, slight increase of blood pressure;
- Enhanced tolerance to the harmful and extreme ambient conditions;
- Reduction of the blood glucose level and activation of energy metabolism;
- Heart protection from myocardial infarction.
Now, we can see that Schisandra chinensis acts as an adaptogen with significant tonic effect on brain and muscles strengthening the body and making it to be more resistant to ambient factors.
All products of Taiga Gold collection contain special blend of extracts of the well-known healthful herbs with beneficial effects on health and fitness.
Rose hip fruit extract is rich with a variety of antioxidants including carotenoids, flavonoids, polyphenols, leucoanthocyanins and catechins. It has high vitamin A and vitamin C contents, it regulates digestive system, and boosts the body immunity components.
Hawthorn berries are widely regarded in Europe as safe and effective means for treatment of early stages of heart disease because they improve cardiac function, protect against cholesterol plaque formation, and regulate blood pressure.
Rowan berry extract is known to boost immune system, strengthen respiratory organs, improve digestion, and suppress bacterial infections due to its high antiseptic activity.
Linden flower extract stimulates immune system, reduces inflammation, lowers blood pressure, and helps to detoxify the whole body. It also exerts calming effects on nervous system and reduces anxiety.
Thus, Taiga Gold and Schisandra chinensis was scientifically formulated for:
- pre-workout energy boost;
- stimulation of mental activity, good mood and desire to work and create;
- enhanced physical performance with no tiredness and fatigue feelings;
- protection from adverse physical factors such heat, freeze, wind, sun radiation, etc.
Schisandra is one of the most antient remedies
Schisandra chinensis is a unique herb growing in the north-eastern China and far eastern parts of Russia. Its berries when taken are thought to exert a large variety of healthy effects. In Chinese schisandra berries are named "Wu Wei Zi" meaning five flavored berry because its taste is at the same time sweet, sour, salty, bitter and pungent.
Schisandra chinensis is being used for millennia to retard the aging process and increase energy supply resulting in long and healthy life. It is one of the primary remedies in Chinese herbal medicine since antiquity. The most ancient text of Chinese herbal medicine, the Divine Husbandman's Classic of the Materia Medica, is believed to have originated in the first century B.C. It contains the recipes for the use of schisandra, which can "prolong the years of life without aging" and increase energy and activity, suppress cough, treat fatigue, and act as a sexual tonic in men.
Schisandra berries also possess outstanding anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. Thus, it helps to maintain healthy cells throughout the body. Schisandra is considered as one of the most highly protective of all medicinal herbs, and these berries are in the lists of many traditional herbal formulas for the energy enhance and mental health.
Why Schisandra effects are so strong?
There are seeds inside Schisandra berries . Thin skin of these seeds contains numerous active lignans named schisandrins providing unique biological activity. Despite the well-known opinion about health effects of Schisandra berries, the active part is their seeds. That is why the best extract can be made only from seeds using precise solvents getting schisandrins out.
In manufacturing of Taiga Gold with Schizandra chinensis we use only wild crafted berries. Before isolation of the active glycosides we take the seeds out of the berries and ground them to relieve the glycosides from their storage sites. After that we can obtain extract with very high concentration of active schizandrins.
Daily intake of Schizandra extract containing about 0.3 - 0.5 mg of schizandrins is enough for safe and effective influence. One capsule of Taiga Gold with Schizandra chinensis contains about 0.5 mg of the total schizandrins.
What is bioavailability? This term defines the amount of active compound getting into the system bloodstream, affecting target molecules in inner organs, and thus providing desirable effects.
Schisandrins getting into the stomach are supposed to be destroyed by acid and digestive enzymes. Generally, from 50 to 80% of the whole amount of active compounds are degraded in stomach resulting in 3-5-fold reduction of bioavailabliliy and hence beneficial effects.
Taiga Gold collection formula is created for very high bioavailability of Schisandra's lignans and other biologically active compounds.
In Taiga Gold, we use structured de-esterified pectin polymer for protection of the Schisandra lignans from the adverse influence of acid and digestive enzymes. Pectin works as an envelope. It covers lignans and carries them like a submarine through dangerous parts of stomach into intestine where they can be absorbed into blood.
Besides, de-esterified pectin is a quite powerful detoxifier. It can bind and remove heavy metal ions, toxins, organic compounds, harmful metabolites and even bacteria. See the chartbelow to make sense on how effectively pectin can remove such toxicants as heavy metals.
