Baikal skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis) is a herb belonging to the mint family and is mainly found in China and Siberia. The most commonly used part of the plant is its root, which contains a high concentration of secondary phytochemicals as well as essential oils, tannins and vitamins.
The small, reddish berries of the schisandra plant have been used traditionally in East Asia for over 2,000 years for their strengthening properties. The berries contain vitamin C and E as well as calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron. They also contain numerous polyphenols and the lignans unique to the plant such as Schisandrin B.
