DHH: B (or dihydrohonokiol-B) is a higher-dosage of honokiol that has been shown to produce an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) effect without change in motor skills or respiration.
It has been used by many to decrease daytime anxiety and works well to facilitate sleep.
In fact, it is 20x the strength as the natural Magnolia Bark (Honokiol) supplement.
DHH-B is derived from magnolia bark and has been used as a neuroprotective to wean patients off benzodiazepines.
HOW MAGNOLIA BARK WORKS:
• Boosts GABA: GABA is a neurotransmitter that exerts a calming effect. Increased GABA activity quiets excitatory neurons in the brain, helps reduce anxiety, and promotes sleep.
• Activates Cannabinoid Receptors: One study found that the extract and its main bioactive constituents, magnolol and honokiol, can activate cannabinoid (CB) receptors. These receptors are part of the endocannabinoid system and are located throughout the body. This system plays a role in immune health, pain relief, and disease-prevention. Activation of these receptors helps to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and elevate mood, among many other benefits.
• Is a Powerful Antioxidant: Magnolia Bark has high antioxidant properties that lower levels of inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain and throughout the body.
• Is an Adrenaline Inhibitor: Bioactive compounds in magnolia bark can reduce adrenaline, a hormone strongly associated with stress, which stimulates vigilance and alertness. Other research indicates magnolia bark may suppress unhealthful levels of cortisol, another significant stress-related hormone.
