I found this plant in the Oikos Tree Crops catalog (they're more-or-less local to me, and I like their style, so I'm looking forward to ordering from them for the first time this year), Schisandra.

Wikipedia (, "The great interest in Limonnik (Schisandra chinensis) in Russia arises from results of ethnopharmacological investigations of Russian scientists in the Far East regions where the berries and seeds were used by Nanai (Goldes or Samagir) hunters to improve night vision, as a tonic and to reduce hunger, thirst and exhaustion since “it gives forces to follow a sable all the day without food”."

Now, I don't exactly need to follow a sable all day without food, but I do have a little more exhaustion in my life than I'd prefer.

Anybody used it? Is the effect all that amazing?

We should throw him a surprise party. It will cheer him up. We can use this tiny ad:
