Did you remember to take your brain health supplements? Cognitive function, memory, mood, and long-term neurological health have become top priorities for today’s health-seekers.
And for a good reason.
Statistics show that cognitive health and emotional wellbeing are impacted by many factors that seem to be multiplying exponentially. From stress and environmental toxins to sleep habits, exercise, and diet, research shows that cognitive function, mood, and overall neurological health depend on a number of influences—many of which we can control.
To start, a healthy, anti-inflammatory diet with minimally processed sugar is essential for robust cognitive function, memory, and a healthy mood. Neuroinflammation in the brain and nervous system can impair executive reasoning and the mind and increase the risks of depression. By reducing pro-inflammatory foods, including refined sugar and highly processed ingredients, and emphasizing fresh vegetables, low-sugar fruits like berries, lean protein, and healthy fats, we can build a strong foundation for reducing inflammation in the nervous system and nourishing the brain.
In addition to a healthy diet, certain botanicals and nutrients are shown to offer critical support for neurological health— helping to balance nervous system responses, promote vigorous neurotransmitter activity, boost mood, and support deep, rejuvenating sleep.*
One of these versatile ingredients is honokiol from Magnolia officinalis bark. Pure honokiol is gaining increased attention as a powerful neurological and cognitive agent, with a growing body of research highlighting its remarkable profile of benefits across our most critical areas of health.
Crossing The Blood-Brain Barrier
Many compounds that are beneficial to other body systems are simply too large to get into the brain. Honokiol, however, has a very small molecular size and structure, which gives it the unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier.1 Honokiol has potent antioxidant actions that contribute to its neurological benefits.
However, it does much more than address oxidative stress. Honokiol interacts with the neurotransmitter, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), promoting optimal GABA activity,2 which results in benefits for healthy mood, relaxation, and restful sleep.
Honokiol has also been found to have a beneficial effect on neurons, supporting healthy nerve cell growth and development.2 This makes it an excellent choice for anyone seeking neurological support for areas of memory and cognition.
Recent scientific studies showed that honokiol supported healthy motor ability, behavioral aspects, and promotion of life span,3 as well as neuroprotection and memory support.4
Honokiol Supports Respiratory Health
Another recent study showed that honokiol worked to support respiratory health and promote healthy breathing.5 Other studies have shown that pure honokiol offers powerful support for the lungs.
HonoPure—The Highest Quality and Purity Honokiol Available
Importantly, high-impact research demonstrating honokiol’s powerful benefits is done on pure honokiol, vs. honokiol with other Magnolia derivatives or compounds.
That’s why ecoNugenics is proud to offer HonoPure® 98% Honokiol. HonoPure is the highest quality and purity honokiol available today, delivering the complete spectrum of benefits consumers expect from this powerful natural ingredient. As the research continues, pure honokiol is proving to be a remarkable and versatile therapeutic compound that offers broad-spectrum support for long-term health and wellness.*
