In the Restoring Immunity System:
Magnolia is a relatively new extract to the restoring immunity system. Its actions indicate it as support in stage 1 for the nervous system and then in stage 3 to resolve states of chronic inflammation such as asthma, colitis, and symptoms of irritable bowel. The tonic action on inflammation would also make it useful for acute colds, flu and viruses in protocols with other supportive extracts.
The magnolia grandiflora is one of the most beautiful and prized trees, evergreen with a straight trunk, conical crown, and very fragrant, very large, white flowers. The pyramidal magnolia grandiflora is usually 50 ft. tall, rarely growing to 100 ft. It has a dense growth of smooth, leathery evergreen leaves that are alternate, 5-10 inches long, shiny on top and rusty below. Fragrant, creamy-white flowers, which discolor easily if bruised, appear on the ends of thick, tough stems all over the tree. They are cup-shaped, about 8 inches across, with 6 thick petals, wider at the tip, where they are cupped. The blossoms open about 9:00 A.M. and close at night for 2 or 3 days; then turns brown, and disintegrates. The flowers appear throughout the summer and into fall. It prefers moist soil and is native to the southern United States and most often found on the edges of bodies of water and swamps. It was brought to the UK in 1726 and later spread to France and throughout Europe as an ornamental tree for the garden.
