According to a new research, a powerful polyphenol compound extracted from the bark of Magnolia tree known as Honokiolprotects the muscles from the normal inflammation caused by intense exercise.
It was previously believed that honokiol has benefits in supporting and maintaining the overall health and wellness, and this study has now only strengthened that belief. When one does extended exercise then this can cause normal stress in the skeletal muscles. Marathons, triathlons and other feats of strength and endurance typically generate inflammation in the muscles as a result of exertion. However, honokiol is shown to address this normal inflammation response, and support faster recovery from intense exercise.
Dr. Isaac Eliaz. M.D., M.S., L.Ac who is the product formulator and integrative health pioneer said, "Honokiol is an incredibly versatile botanical extract derived from magnolia bark, which has been used in traditional Asian herbalism for centuries.”
He added, "That's why we put so much effort into creating HonoPure, which is 98 percent pure honokiol. This study adds another layer of information supporting honokiol's beneficial attributes."
In the study, researchers had rats perform an intense exercise regimen, both with and without oral intake of honokiol. The honokiol-fed rats were spared a great deal of the normal inflammation associated with extended exercise. Specifically, honokiol reduced the expression of a wide variety of inflammatory proteins that are generated normally by excessive exercise.
