The Omija berry delights the taste buds while providing loads of nutrients in each bite or sip. Its outer skin gives a sour hit while the inner fruit is comfortingly sweet. Once you get its tiny seeds, you can taste the spice, followed by a slight bitter sensation. Together all the parts of the Omija offer a sweet and salty taste that constitutes the famous Omija flavour that's fast becoming a favourite among all.

The nutrition-filled, five flavour Omija berry is the perfect ingredient for a health drink. In order to preserve its natural goodness, cold brewed has emerged as the best method and here's why...

Omija cold brewed and extraction

The specialised technique to transform the Omija berry into a healthy drink begins with drying the fresh fruit under controlled temperatures for a period of 5 days.

It is then cold brewed to extract all the goodness without adding preservatives and retaining its best qualities.

Improves Liver Function

Schizandra chinensis also known as Omija protects against liver injury caused by a carcinogen called carbon tetrachloride, according to a study published in the journal “Food and Chemical Toxicology” in May 2013. In in vivo study, mice were treated with carbon tetrachloride to induce liver injury. Treatment with schizandra chinensis pollen extract, or SCPE, elevated the activities of antioxidants, prevented the increase in levels of liver enzymes -- alanine aminotransferase and aspartate aminotransferase -- and decreased free radical formation in the liver of mice. Higher levels of liver enzymes indicate that you have liver disease. The results demonstrated that SCPE possesses powerful antioxidant activities and offers protection against liver injury.

Improves Mental Capabilities

Known as an adaptogenic agent, Omija helps balance hormones naturally and improves our ability to deal with stressors, both physical and psychological. Because Omija helps nurture the adrenal glands and turns down an overproduction of “stress hormones” like cortisol, it’s linked with better mental capabilities, physical endurance and metabolic health.

In 2007, the Swedish Herbal Institute Research and Development department tested the effects of adaptogen on blood levels of stress-activated protein kinase and determined that over a seven-day period, when rats were given frequent supplementation of adaptogens, they experienced near-steady levels of NO and cortisol despite increased amounts of stress.

The findings suggest that inhibitory effects of these adaptogens make them natural antidepressants that have positive effects on hormones and brain functions even when under stress and tiring conditions.
