Honokiol is an essential anti-addiction sleep aid. It is simultaneously neuroprotective and anti-inflammatory and works to facilitate healthy, restful sleep. Otherwise known as magnolia bark extract, this supplement can also be used in the following ways:
- Pain reliever
- Muscle relaxer
- Reduces symptoms of Alzheimer's disease
- Improves learning and memory
- Increases exploratory behavior
- Helps repair and regrow brain cells and tissues
- Shortens sleep latency and excites sleep-promoting neurons
Honokiol is particularly valuable for recovering benzodiazepine addicts and can reduce withdrawal symptoms for these individuals.
Take 1 capsule of this supplement (total of 400mg) at night before bedtime to facilitate sleep and relaxation. Avoid taking more that 1 capsule since higher doses of honokiol can be neurotoxic. Do not take caffeine if you plan to use honokiol since caffeine can reduce or completely nullify the effects of the magnolia bark extract.
Be aware that honokiol may interact negatively with medications that reduce blood clotting.
