Magnolia Rhodiola Complex is a herbal supplement for the temporary relief of symptoms associated with stress, anxiety and low mood such as fatigue, exhaustion, and mild anxiety, based on traditional use only. Magnolia Rhodiola capsules incorporate traditional herbal stress-lowering herbs to support 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 help to reduce levels of cortisol, the stress hormone responsible for a variety of symptoms, based on traditional use only. 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 may be low libido. Magnolia Rhodiola is a superb natural remedy with adaptogens that helps increase the body's ability to cope with all types of stressors whether physical, hormonal, or emotive, based on traditional use only.
- 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, based on traditional use only.
- Rhodiola Rosea increases tolerance to various stressors, i.e. mental, physical, and environmental, in part by beneficially modifying the stress response, based on traditional use only. 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 help enhance the transportation of mood-elevating chemicals into the brain.
- 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.
