Dragon Herbs Goji & Schizandra Drops (formerly called Schizandra & Lycium Drops), composed out of Schizandra and Goji (Lycium barbarum) tincture has served as their #1 selling tincture for 22 years running. There must be something very special about it in order to maintain such dominance among elite herbal connoisseurs for over two decades without ever falling off the throne.
According to the great Taoist Master Sung Jin Park, the blend can restore youthfulness, slow down aging, invigorate all twelve meridians, increase vitality, calm the nerves, nourish and cleanse our blood, protect the liver, strengthen the mind, improve sexual functioning for both men and women, improve respiratory functions and beautify the skin.
Though this is a long list of potential benefits, Master Park's claims are based on over two thousand years of experience by Asian people with this combination. These claims are all classical benefits believed to be derived from these two remarkable tonic fruits.

Over the years, Dragon Herbs has made Goji & Schizandra Drops (formerly called Schizandra & Lycium Drops) with several different producers, each with slightly different extraction technologies, secrets and skills. For the last few years, they have been thinking about using FITT to make their tinctures, a green technology that uses a room temperature process to extract herbs so as to preserve all the valuable components in their natural state and proportion.
This proprietary extraction technology captures the original phytochemical profile of a botanical (the plant’s fingerprint) and transfers its safely and almost identically into the final extract, preserving the aroma, color and taste of the plant perfectly.
Recently, Dragon Herbs was overwhelmingly successful at extracting very high quality Deer Antler as a water-alcohol extract (a tincture) with FITT. They were so impressed with what they got out of the Deer Antler that they have now switched production of Goji & Schizandra Drops to FITT. They've been working on it for more than two years and have produced samples with FITT a couple of different times to make sure they should make the switch. Each time, their herbalists and local testers raved about the samples and implored them to make the move.
Individually, both herbs are among the elite tonic herbs in the world. More than three thousand years of keen observation by master herbalists have led to the conclusion that these two tonic herbs have a synergy that makes them even better when combined. And luckily, they happen to taste amazing together, especially when made from extraordinary, freshly harvested fruit.
Many people are using the term "superfruit" a bit loosely these days to describe almost every fruit. Fruit is great, of course, but Goji and Schizandra berries are much more than mere fruits. They are used in tonic herbalism, the art of longevity and radiant health, as key tonic herbs, on par with Ginseng and Reishi Mushroom. Apples, bananas and plums are not used as tonic herbs. Goji and Schizandra possess properties beyond those of normal fruits, and even most true so-called superfruits.
From the point of view of traditional Asian healthcare, these two herbs are perfectly balanced in terms of Yin and Yang, they tonify all three Treasures (Jing, Qi and Shen), nurture all five elements and invigorate all twelve meridians. This simple, sophisticated and profound Taoist formula is incomparable!
