Shen Shu Storehouse Polygala and Schisandra Key Benefits
Polygala Root (Polygala tenuifolia)
Historically, Polygala Root, also known as Yuan Zhi, has been used to help manage stress, calm the spirit and improve memory. Polygala is one of the eight “herbs that nourish the heart and calm the spirit.” In Chinese medicine, Polygala is said to “open the orifices.” Indications for the use of Polygala include:
- Mental stress;
- Poor memory;
- Brain fog.*
Schisandra Berries (Schisandra chinensis)
Schisandra is considered to be an adaptogenic herb, aiding the body in managing stress and returning to allostasis. As an astringent, Schisandra is particularly relevant in old age, overwork and burnout, and chronic disease. Schisandra is said to astringe the Jing, or Yuan Qi. Jing is our deepest source of energy and our true essence. It is said that Schisandra has…the power to help keep one from losing physical, mental, and spiritual energy (Tierra, 1998). Schisandra’s herbal actions include:
- Immune tonic;

A cool, dry place, away from sunlight and moisture.
