DHH-B (dihydrohonokiol-B) is a potent form of honokiol with anti-anxiety effects without affecting motor skills or respiration. It is commonly used to ease daytime anxiety and promote sleep and is 20 times stronger than regular Magnolia Bark (Honokiol) supplement. DHH-B is sourced from magnolia bark and has been used as a substitute for benzodiazepines.
Magnolia Bark works in the following ways:
Enhances GABA: GABA is a neurotransmitter that calms the brain. An increase in GABA activity reduces anxiety and promotes sleep.
Activates Cannabinoid Receptors: Research shows that magnolia bark extract and its main components, magnolol and honokiol, activate cannabinoid (CB) receptors which are part of the endocannabinoid system and found throughout the body. This system helps in immune health, pain relief, mood improvement and disease prevention.
Powerful Antioxidant: Magnolia Bark has high antioxidant properties that decrease inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain and body.
