Our Store Manager Donna, is getting ready to take on the 100 Day Schizandra Challenge.
Schizandra is a herb that is very highly regarded in Asia and Europe because of its beneficial impact on several meridians within the body, including the heart, lungs and kidneys.
If used for 100 days, Schizandra is said to purify the blood, sharpen the mind, improve memory, rejuvenate the kidney energy and result in skin that glows with radiance.
Schizandra has also been found to reduce inflammation, increase energy (and libido!), improve vision, aid digestion and boost immunity.
To participate in the challenge, you commit to taking one dose of Schizandra per day. Dosage for the challenge starts off at 1/4 tsp per day and can go up to 1 level tsp. Schizandra can be mixed into water, nut milks, a smoothie, sprinkled on muesli, mixed into broths or added to baking and cooking.
Donna is starting her challenge on October 1, so she'll be glowing with radiance as we ring 2021.
If you'd like to join Donna, come into the store to grab your first jar of Superfeast Schizandra. Hang onto your receipt, because once you're half way through the challenge we'll motivate you to keep going with 10% of your second jar (on presentation of your initial purchase receipt).
We'll be keeping everyone updated on how Donna is going and providing some recipes and tips along the way.
