DHH-B brain benefits

DHH-B is a natural supplement that is made from the bark of the magnolia tree.

Magnolia bark, and the powerful extracts from it, have been shown to address anxiety in similar ways to benzodiazepines without the unwanted side effects. 

In alternative medicine, magnolia bark is said to aid in the treatment or prevention of the following health problems:

  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Depression
  • High cholesterol
  • Insomnia
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Obesity
  • Stroke

The most well-studied and known of these compound of the Magnolia Bark is honokiol. DHH-B (dihydrohonokiol-B) is a stronger extract of honokiol, in fact, it is estimated to be 20x the strength of the natural Magnolia Bark (Honokiol) supplement.

This compound has many useful effects:

  • Research on cancer benefits is ongoing
  • Kills oral bacteria
  • Beneficial for spleen, stomach, and intestinal issues
  • Supports liver health
  • Has a relaxing effect on lungs
  • Menopause help
  • Helps relieve stress and anxiety
  • Protects neurological and cognitive health
  • Supports restful sleep
  • Joint inflammation
  • enhances the actions of SIRT1, a key protein essential for healthy mitochondrial function

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. Honokiol is a primary chemical contained in magnolia bark. As an antioxidant, pure honokiol is 1,000 times more potent than Vitamin E in scavenging free radicals and addressing oxidative stress.
