Schizandra - Herbal remedy for Hepatitis:  The dried fruits are derived from an aromatic, woody vine that grows in China and north-east Asia. It is a member of the Magnolia family. The fruits are sour tasting, subsequently stimulating bile production. You can make an infusion with the dried berries though they are sometimes eaten. Infuse one tablespoon of chopped dried berries in a cup of hot water for 10-minutes. Strain and drink three times a day for two weeks.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
