Honokare is a full-spectrum, supercritical extract of five much-researched medicinal roots and barks, with six synergistic essential oils, within a delivery system of humic and fulvic acids. Designed to be gentle, effective and restorative, Honokare supports the body in restoring mental and physical wellness.
Manufactured under the guidance of expert nutritional technologists, this formulation makes use of organic traditional Chinese medicine extracts, organic hand-crafted, food-grade essential oils, as well as organic natural nutrient-delivery and chelation systems.
When a body is depleted and working overtime on repair and recovery, this powerful formulation delivers therapeutic levels of twelve highly-researched, wellness-boosting ingredients, flooding the body with an array of nutrients known to boost strength and, at the same time, keeping stress response and stress chemicals in check.
The proprietary blend of medicinal roots and barks is derived through an extraction process that has been used for the past 20 years to create extracts for practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine. The multi-stage extraction captures all the fat-soluble micronutrients from the roots and barks chosen for Honokare. The focus is on Magnolia and Astragalus, but includes a supportive complement of dandelion root, pau d'arco bark and ginger root.
Honokiol, a natural compound found in magnolia bark, is nontoxic, easily absorbed and systemically available. Honokiol avoids immediate break-down by the liver (first pass effect), crossing blood barriers that often exclude other compounds. This compound has been found to be an ideal treatment for everything from anxiety, inflammation and weight loss, to the treatment of stroke and periodontal disease. Honokiol appears to turn off the division of some unwanted cells while inducing others to apoptosis. It has properties found to eliminate the blood supply to tumors (antiangiogenesis) and some studies are recommending honokiol as an adjunct treatment with other types of chemotherapy.
Medical research of magnolia bark indicates it's biphenol compounds (magnolol and honokiol) have the ability to control levels of the body's primary stress hormone, cortisol, thus making it an ideal anti-stress and anti-anxiety agent. Myriad health benefits are associated with normal cortisol levels, including, but not limited to, normalization of blood sugar, strengthening of bones, improved memory and robust immune system function. Honokiol also selectively modulates gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors, producing powerful anti-anxiety results, while avoiding the side effects of many sedatives.
Astragalus root is an adaptogen, antipyretic, diuretic, tonic, uterine stimulant and vasodilator. It helps modulate the immune system and strengthen several organs while lowering blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Chinese studies show that patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy recover faster and live longer when given astragalus root extract as an adjuvant therapy.
Dandelion root stimulates the flow of bile, thereby decongesting and restoring the liver and improving the body's ability to eliminate unwanted cells.
Wildcrafted pau d'arco extract is a natural herb retrieved from the inner bark of the tabebuia avellanedae tree. Also known as ipe roxo, pau d'arco has been used for centuries by the indian tribes of South America, as well as by the ancient Incas and Aztecs. In published articles, pau d'arco has been found to alleviate chemotherapy symptoms and contribute to the remission of tumors. This herb has shown to be a strong anti bacterial, anti fungal and yeast killer. Antiviral properties have been displayed in-vitro by pau d'arco against herpes I and II, influenza, polio virus and vesicular stomatitis. It is also confirmed as being an anti-parasitic and antiinflammatory.
Ginger root extract helps with nausea, digestive problems, circulation and arthritis, to name a few.
During the extraction process, the oils within the roots and barks of Honokare are concentrated without chemical solvents or heat stress. These oils are then recombined with a full-spectrum hydroethanolic extract of the same ingredients, assuring full potency of all the active and cooperative fractions.
