Ep 95

Cortisol Regulation and Sleep Aid
Magnolia bark has the ability to bring cortisol levels into normal ranges, making it effective for stress management. It can also be used as a sleep aid due to its calming effects, affecting the neurotransmitter GABA, which is crucial for relaxation and sleep. 

Anti-Inflammatory and Antioxidant Effects
Magnolia exhibits anti-inflammatory properties by inhibiting COX-2 activity, providing a natural approach to inflammation without the side effects associated with certain drugs. As an antioxidant, Magnolia helps neutralize free radicals, supporting cardiovascular health, protecting organs, and enhancing cellular health.

Gut Health and Microbiome Support
Magnolia can contribute to gut health by increasing the diversity of the microbiome and calming the digestive tract. Its anti-inflammatory effects may be beneficial for conditions like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and it could be considered as an adjunct therapy for gut-related symptoms.
