Canadian product.For stress,mood,depression,sustained energy,sharp mind.Side effects: if you take it too late during the day you'll have hard time to fall asleep.No other side effects,only slows you down like fired submarine torpedo.This product is a good alternative for coffee to sustain energy thru the day.The best effect is to take 2 pills on a empty stomach in the morning and wait 30 minutes. Then eat your breakfast. Don't take after 2pm unless you're doing night shift.

5.Organic traditions schisandra berry or mountain rose herbs schisandra -Usa grown has best quality.This product is good for liver protection(stomach pain so probiotic HCP 70),isomnia and sweats at night when you can't sleep.Also is calming for the brain.Chinese origin schizandra have poor quality in my opinion.I tested few.Quality product costs money.
