What is magnolia bark
extract? Using Magnolia Bark extract is a new approach to weight loss
as it targets stored fats while supporting mood. It has been shown
to reduce lipid droplets. (Lipid droplets are a storage system for
fat in your body, with a protective coating around them). Magnolia
bark breaks down this protective barrier and speeds up the process
by which the lipids are broken down.
A highly aromatic herbal material obtained from Magnolia officinalis
(see Figure 1) of the Family Magnoliaceae, this pharmacy item is
obtained by stripping the bark from stems, branches, and roots.
The Chinese name for the her b, houpu, refers to the thick (pu)
bark that is the unadorned (hou) portion of the plant. In modern
times, it is common for magnolia bark to be sold to pharmacies in
bundles of relatively uniform strips about 4 inches long. This herb
was first described in the Shennong Bencao Jing (1) around 100 A.D.,
as follows: houpu is bitter and warm, non-toxic, mainly treating
wind-stroke, cold damage, headache, cold and heat, fright qi, blood
impediment, and dead muscle. It removes the three kinds of worms.
It grows in mountains and valleys.
In Chinese medicine Magnolia bark is mainly used for stagnation
of qi and moisture circulation in the abdomen associated with digestive
disturbance and tightness in the chest associated with impaired
breathing. The treatment of "fright qi" is one of the
persisting indications for magnolia bark in the traditional prescriptions:
it treats syndromes that are caused by emotional distress, such
as plum pit qi, digestive disturbance associated with fear and anxiety,
and shortness of breath due to emotional turmoil. Although magnolia
bark is no longer used in the treatment of worms, its antibacterial
properties are recognized and may be responsible for its ability
to alleviate discomfort due to some intestinal bacterial infect
ions. It may be prepared with ginger juice to enhance its digestive
What is guggul extract?
(Cholesterol and fat Lowering)
As a statins substitute, Guggul (Commiphora mukul) received regulatory
approval in India in 1987 and is used to treat a range of conditions
including obesity and lipid disorders. It has been found to increase
HDL cholesterol and reduce LDL cholesterol, lower triglycerides,
help reduce blood clots and prevent strokes, help with proper thyroid
function, weight management and hepatitis. Experts from UT Southwestern
Medical Center at Dallas and Baylor College of Medicine in Houston,
found that the extract blocks the body's Farnesoid X Receptor (FXR).
This receptor plays a key role in managing cholesterol levels by
triggering the process in which the body converts cholesterol to
bile acids. It this process happens too quickly the body is not
able to get rid of enough cholesterol, leaving levels high and increasing
the risks of heart disease.
The researchers said their findings, published in the latest issue
of Science magazine (May 2002), could pave the way for the use of
guglipid in new cholesterol-lowering drugs.
Guggul detoxifies the blood, helps circulation, heart, asthma, skin
problems, boosts energy and the immune system.An extract from a
small tree found across Arabia and India can help to reduce cholesterol,
scientists have discovered. The extract, called guglipid, comes
from the guggal tree and has been used in Ayurvedic medicine, a
traditional Hindu medicine, for nearly 3,000 years.
A resin known to increase white blood cell counts and possess strong
disinfecting properties Guggul possesses a wide range of actions
