Multiple test over the last 70 years have proven time and time again that Schizandra is considerably effective in boosting concentration and accuracy of movement in people performing physically stressful jobs and tasks, requiring incredible coordination. Whereas the exact biological reason for this phenomenon has not been completely pinpointed, it is first recorded to have been scientifically discovered around the time of WW 11, and is very likely to involve Shizandra’s high functioning adaptogen qualities.
The first serious study involving accuracy of movement was conducted in Russia in 1942 because of the long-standing knowledge from the area’s aboriginals having used Schizandra berry for centuries. It was used by them on long hunting journeys and replaced the need for food and water on these trips. This official Russian study resulted in providing Schizandra medicine to military hospitals to treat injured soldiers during the war. The effect of those berries was so strong that it was then given to sharpshooters, scouts and pilots of night bombers. Many of theses people reported enhanced performance and endurance.
After that, many more studies were conducted, first in Russia and then in other parts of Europe and North America. Most of these studies tested “the beneficial effects of schizandra on healthy subjects.” Within these studies, administration of Schizandra was given to road-transport drivers, aircraft pilots, seamen, and athletes and was continuously seen to permit them to maintain a high level of physical performance, accuracy of movement and coordination in the naturally stressful conditions. It has also been proven to result in increased attention and rapid recovery of strength following exertion.
