Magnolia – How extracts from a flowering tree can help with stress during the day and rejuvenate with a restful night
Magnolia is a light-loving tree species in the Magnoliaceae family and grows in many parts of the world. Magnolia bark contains several biologically active compounds such as magnolol, honokiol, 4-o-methylhonokiol, obovatol and other neolignans with diverse functionality. Magnolia has been used for centuries in traditional medicine due to its antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic properties. Modern scientific research has found that magnolol and honokiol in Magnolia can help ease mood, relieve stress and induce sleep by balancing cortisol levels.
Hormonal imbalance in the body may directly or indirectly cause increased appetite and results in obesity. Low sleep quality can also cause obesity. Magnolia bark extract in TRIM 1+1 is enriched with honokiol and magnolol in required amounts to effectively treat stress and sleep-related symptoms associated with increased cortisol. Relief from stress can dramatically reduce food cravings which are a major factor in weight gain. A good night’s sleep will play a major role in reducing obesity and improving general health and well-being.
