Magnolia Bark Supplement To Aid Sleep and Combat Stress

Magnolia bark extract is a relatively inexpensive phytonutrient that has been used safely for two thousand years in traditional Chinese medicine. Recent studies confirm our magnolia bark supplement’s efficacy in a remarkably wide range of health-related cases.

Magnolia Bark Extract Benefits

It is only recently, however, that studies have highlighted the amazing health benefits of two of Magnolia's constituents: honokiol and magnolol. We have formulated a product that is standardized to contain 90% honokiol and magnolol in order to guarantee a high content of active principles.

Magnolol and honokiol benefit the brain, in particular, and the body in many ways, including:

  • Have a beneficial effect on the activity of several neurotransmitters and help normalize and protect cerebral functions.
  • Honokiol and magnolol are powerful antioxidants. Other studies on laboratory animals show that they protect against free radical damage to mitochondria in the liver, heart, and brain.
  • Other research demonstrates Magnolia extract's efficacy across a range of conditions, such as common hospital-transmitted septic infections, inflammation, and bacterial growth.

But as a brain health supplement — first and foremost — there are three additional benefits to its positive effects on the brain. It also supports quality sleep and it combats feelings of stress. Another magnolia bark extract use includes potentially inhibiting the effects of menopause.

Aids Quality Sleep

Magnolia capsules contain the polyphenols magnolol and honokiol found in natural magnolia bark. Studies have shown they may help induce sleep and improve the quality of your sleep.

Many people take magnolia bark supplements as a natural remedy for their insomnia. Taking a magnolia bark supplement may also help you feel more well-rested every morning.

Animal studies have produced positive results regarding the impact of taking a magnolia extract supplement as a sleep aid. The results have demonstrated that people could find it easier to fall asleep and reduce the number of times they wake up during the night.

The effects of a magnolol supplement on sleep is connected to receptors within the central nervous system. With these receptors being so closely associated with good quality sleep, it makes sense that a magnolia supplement could be effective for people struggling with sleep cycles.

Combats Feelings of Stress

Coping with stress can be a challenge in today's fast-paced society. Fortunately, one of the many magnolia extract benefits is its ability to combat stress.

Several animal and human studies have been conducted on the neurological effects of magnolia bark supplements. Studies have shown that taking magnolia bark has a positive impact on daily stress.

In fact, honokiol and magnolol may help reduce stress without causing drowsiness. In one animal study, honokiol showed a similar level of efficacy to diazepam — a well-known presecription drug — but without the sedative and habit-forming side effects of the drug.

Its effect on stress is due to a reduction in cortisol levels. Cortisol is the stress hormone, and lowering the brain’s natural cortisol levels has been associated with reduced stress and improved mood.

Studies have shown honokiol supplements may also support serotonin activity. Your serotonin levels play a massive role in regulating your mood. While clinical research is ongoing, anecdotal evidence shows that taking a supplement containing magnolia extract can dramatically affect how you feel.

If you’re searching for a natural solution to alleviate stress, adding magnolia to your day could transform your quality of life — alongside a healthy diet, regular exercise, and other supplements.

Inhibits the Effects of Menopause

Menopause is a challenging time for women. But with the benefits of improved mood and sleep, magnolia bark supplement could be especially beneficial for women going through it.

Menopause has been regularly associated with mood alterations and lack of sleep. But adding magnolia extract to a dietary regimen may combat insomnia and improve mood.

Confronting menopause can be unpleasant and uncomfortable, and it may cause issues with your daily routine. Magnolia bark supplements may not completely eliminate the effects of menopause, but studies have shown they may reduce them. In particular, another study demonstrated that magnolia bark extract capsules could reduce the frequency and severity of hot flashes.

Magnolia Bark Extract Side Effects

Adding any supplement to your diet requires careful thought and consideration. All supplements come with the potential for side effects, ranging from mild to dangerous.

The all-natural nature of our magnolia bark supplement and the fact that it has been well-studied over decades means that this supplement is generally safe to consume. However, you should still do your own research so you can make an informed decision.

If you already have a pre-existing condition that requires you to take prescription medication, ensure that you consult your doctor before adding a new supplement to your regimen. Negative drug interactions can lead to adverse side effects that may be unpleasant to deal with.

A visit to your primary care physician enables a professional to analyze your medical history and provide advice on whether you can enjoy magnolia bark extract benefits safely.

You can also conduct your own research online. You’ll find plenty of studies focusing on magnolia bark benefits and potential drawbacks of adding this supplement to your daily dietary regime.

Finally, ensure you monitor the effects of taking one of these supplements. If you experience any magnolia bark side effects, stop taking the supplement immediately and consult your doctor.
