6 Amazing Benefits of Magnolias


1. The White Magnolia is Louisiana's state flower. The huge, off-white flower of the magnolia tree became the Louisiana state flower in 1900 because of its prevalence throughout the state. The magnolia is an evergreen and the flower has an amazing fragrance.

2. Anxiety Treatment

Compounds in Magnolias help to regulate the body's endocrine system to reduce anxiety and stress. It soothes the mind and lowers the release of hormones in the body.  Alike it also relieves depression by stimulating the release of dopamine and feel good hormones that can change your mood.

3. Respiratory Issues

Magnolia has long been used to relieve certain respiratory conditions, including bronchitis, coughing, excess phlegm, and even asthma. It naturally stimulates the corticosteroids in the body to respond to conditions like asthma, thereby relieving inflammation and preventing asthmatic attacks, according to studies on Chinese traditional medicines.

4. Promotes Weight Loss

Although magnolia bark can increase appetite by stimulating food cravings due to its corticosteroid nature, magnolia supplements may help decrease appetite, which can help anyone trying to lose weight. A clinical study involving healthy premenopausal women showed that the use of  Magnolia Officinalis and Phellodendron amurense extracts helped aid weight loss in the participants. However, further studies are needed to explore this health benefit. So, be sure you consult a professional herbalist or alternative medical professional to get the best advice on what kind of supplement would best for your own situation.

5. Manages Diabetes

One of the reasons that magnolia has gotten so much attention in recent years is its bark’s active compounds’ ability to become cortisol, the stress-hormone reducing factor in our body. By acting as cortisol, it has the potential to help the body control its release and management of blood sugar. This could go a long way toward preventing the development of diabetes. 

6. Alzheimer's Disease

For people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or showing risks of other cognitive disorders, magnolia may be a powerful strategy to increase cognition. The magnolol found in it stimulates acetylcholine levels in the brain, which is what amyloid plaque in the brain can reduce. Honokiol present in magnolia is also linked to increased brain function and neural activity, thereby reducing memory loss and increasing cognition.
