These amyloid beta peptides are some of the components responsible for formation of amyloid plaque (a substance which is found in the brain of AD patients).

Anti-oxidation Properties

Schisandra’s anti-oxidative ability seems to be related to hormesis. This phenomena is similar to workouts where damage is induced to protect and repair to a larger extent. The result of hormesis, seems to be increased expression of anti-oxidative enzymes found in mitochondria including Glutathione Reductase and elevation of Heat Shock Proteins.

Management of Asthma

Several recent scientific studies have proved that schisandra plays a big role in treatment of specific respiratory disorders such as asthma. A scientific study conducted in 2014 in Korea reported that schisandra exert anti-asthma activity by blocking the antibodies (immunoglobulins) that cause allergy while tempering the hyperresponsiveness which causes spasm and closure of airways.

Scientists realized that Schisandra extract is efficient in relieving menopause symptoms. Such symptoms include sweating, heart palpitations, and hot flashes.

4. Schisandra extract dosage

The following Schisandra extract dosage has been studied in scientific work and found to be effective:

●Oral:

For hepatitis take Schisandra standardized to lignan content 20 mg per day. If you want to improve mental and physical performance take 500 mg to 2 g of schisandra per day or 1.5-6 g of crude schisandra per day.

Some researchers used 5-15 g daily of a boiled tea made from crude schisandra and proved effective too. You can also take 100 mg of schisandra two times per day.

 

5.Schisandra extract help with erectile dysfunction

In a research studying the effects of active components Schisandra extract and ethanol extract in rabbits, schisandrol A and B lignans improved the relaxation of corpora cavernosae stimulated by sildenafil by two-fold. Schisandrol A lignin exerted the most excellent relaxant effect and might have a synergistic function for patients with ED who don’t respond to sildenafil monotherapy.

Schisandra extract has been demonstrated to function as a weak estrogen agonist in vitro and thus a phytoestrogen. Schisandra can do so at very low concentrations of as low as 10ug/mL. Schisandra therefore lowers estrogen levels in men. It is well known that high estrogen levels are a risk factor for erectile dysfunction.

Shisandra extract was shown that it doesn’t influence the androgen receptor in transfected cell lines that express the androgen receptor. This therefore increases the levels of testosterone hormone.
