WHAT IS DHH-B?
Used in ancient Asian medicine, the extracts of the magnolia tree’s bark have been touted for their curative and calming effects for centuries. They are now being researched in western culture as well. DHH-B is approximately 2,000% stronger than the often-mentioned extract, honokiol, for those familiar with magnolia bark extract.
HOW DHH-B WORKS
Honokiol is a poly-phenolic compound studied for its neuroprotective properties by a variety of mechanisms. Its therapeutic potential has been researched in anxiety, pain, cerebrovascular injury, epilepsy, and cognitive disorders. It has historically been used in Southeast Asia. Still, it has become more widely studied because of its pleiotropic (secondary and tertiary) effects.

DHH-B (Dihydrohonokiol-B) is a natural derivative that has been researched for its benefits on mood and anxiolytic effects.
1 Better Than Benzodiazepines
Benzodiazepines are some of the most commonly prescribed medications in the United States. These anxiolytics have many well-known side effects, including motor function, blurred vision, confusion, constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, memory problems, nausea, and many more.
In addition to abuse and dependence, other documented risks associated with benzodiazepine use include:
- Motor vehicle accidents. Driving while on benzodiazepines increases the risk of crashes to about the same as the risk of driving with a blood-alcohol level between 0.050% and 0.079% (more than 0.08% is illegal in all states).
- Hip fracture. When taking benzodiazepines, the risk of hip fracture in older people increases by around 50%.
Distinctly different from benzodiazepines, DHH-B causes no effect on motor activity or muscle engagement and has been used to wean patients off benzodiazepines. As such, DHH-B may be a suitable option for people struggling with motor systems side effects of benzodiazepines.
2 Creates a Calming Effect
Like other magnolia bark extracts, DHH-B boosts GABA, a neurotransmitter that produces a calming effect. GABA soothes those neural properties that facilitate agitation, turmoil, and upheaval.
3 Activates Cannabinoid Receptors
According to studies, DHH-B also activates cannabinoid receptors throughout the body. These receptors have a hand in immune systems, pain relief, and disease prevention, so activation reduces inflammation, relieves pain, and elevates mood.
4 Powerful Antioxidant
Honokiol and its derivatives also act as a powerful antioxidant, lowering oxidative stress and in the brain and inflammation throughout the body.
5 Relieves Stress
DHH-B supplement has also been researched for its ability to inhibit an overactive adrenal gland, lowering the hormone associated with stress and agitation.
6 Anxiolytic (Anti-anxiety) Effect
DHH-B for anxiety is ever popular. With an increased awareness of the unwanted side effects of benzodiazepines, DHH-B has been used by many to decrease daytime anxiety. This powerful natural anti-anxiety medicine also works well to facilitate sleep.
