Magnolia Rhodiola Complex


Suitable for Vegetarians


Magnolia Rhodiola Complex is a herbal supplement to alleviate stress, anxiety and low mood by lowering cortisol levels with the body.

Magnolia Rhodiola capsules incorporate stress-lowering herbs which stimulate calming factors helping you to feel relaxed without drowsiness, elevate mood and improve emotional well-being.

What does it do:
Today, more and more of us are experiencing symptoms of stress and anxiety. Stress, whether physical, hormonal or emotional causes the increase of cortisol by the adrenals. High cortisol levels are responsible for a myriad of concerns but primarily cortisol blocks the uptake of the mood elevating serotonin.

Magnolia extracts have been shown to physically relax muscles and nerves as well as helping to reduce levels of cortisol, the stress hormone responsible for a variety of symptoms. Magnolia Rhodiola works by counteracting the body's fight or flight response. At times of stress, the body goes through a series of changes in order to prepare you to run away or stay and fight. Part of this response is the release of hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. If your stress response isn't reversed, it can contribute to a condition known as adrenal stress or adrenal fatigue and can also interfere with the hormones involved in your sexual response. The result can be low libido.

Magnolia Rhodiola is a superb natural remedy with adaptogens which helps increase the body's ability to cope with all types of stressors whether physical, hormonal or emotive.

The Science:
Magnolia extracts contain Honokiol which has been shown to reduce cortisol within the body as well as working to physically relax muscles and nerves.

Phellodendron is one of 50 most important herbs in Chinese medicine. It contains a variety of compounds known to help elevate mood and improve emotional wellbeing.

Rhodiola Rosea increases tolerance to various stressors, i.e. mental, physical, and environmental, in part by beneficially modifying the stress response. This herb acts predominantly on the hypothalamus in a way that normalises the manner in which the body responds to stress triggers. Active compounds in this herb may enhance the transportation of mood elevating chemicals into the brain. Rhodiola has been clinically studied and found to enhance serotonin uptake by the brain helping to elevate mood.

L-Theanine, usually found in green tea, has been shown to help promote deep muscle relaxation and improve sleep quality due to its ability to promote alpha wave production by the brain. Alpha waves relax the mind and enhance mental concentration.

  • Tackles the symptoms of stress, anxiety, tension, mood swings and low mood
  • Improves emotional well being
  • Can help to increase libido
