Anxiolytic effect of Hangekobokuto and Saibokuto

Among the Magnolia-prescribed Kampo medicines, some such as Hange-koboku-to, Saiboku-to, Bukuryo-ingo-hange-koboku-to and Shishi-koboku-to have been considered to relieve anxiety, nervous tension and or insomnia (Hosoya and Yamamura, 1988 Narita, 1990 Ishida et al, 1999). Kuribara and Maruyama (1995, 1996) applied an elevated plus-maze test in mice to assess behaviorally whether Hange-koboku-to and Saiboku-to exhibited an anxiolytic effect. The effects of Yokukan-san (made of six plants) and Kami-kihi-to (made of 13 plants) were also assessed because both of these Kampo medicines have been used for amelioration of anxiety, neurosis and insomnia, although they do not contain Magnolia. Kakkon-to (made of seven plants) was administered as the Kampo medicine without anxiolytic effect. The elevated plus-maze for mice used for the assessment of the anxiolytic effect of Kampo medicines was a slight modification of the apparatus initially designed for rats (Pellow et al., 1985) and mice...

Benzodiazepinelike side effects of honokiol

Benzodiazepine anxiolytics frequently cause central depressive symptoms such as ataxia, oversedation, amnesia, ethanol and barbiturate potentiation, and tolerance and dependence even at therapeutic doses. Such unwanted side effects limit the clinical usefulness of benzodiazepine anxiolytics (Schweizer et al., 1995 Woods et al., 1992, 1995 Woods and Winger, 1995). Kuribara et al. (1999b) evaluated behaviorally the side effects of honokiol at doses required for anxiolytic effect, and the effects were compared to those of diazepam. Diazepam at 0.5 2 mg kg, doses that were equivalent to the anxiolytic doses, disrupted the traction performance in a dose-dependent manner. Neither single treatment with 2 20 mg kg honokiol nor seven daily treatments with 0.1 2 mg kg honokiol caused significant change in the traction performance. These results indicate that, in contrast to diazepam, honokiol has less liability to producte muscle relaxation after acute or chronic administration at the doses...

Anxiety

As a permanent fixture in many people's lives, anxiety affects not only the mind, but the body and daily functioning. Anxiety can be defined in two ways the first as an apprehensive, uneasy state of mind, often as the result of anticipated events (i.e., life stress) and the second, more clinical definition characterizes anxiety as an abnormal, overwhelming feeling of apprehension or fear that is punctuated by physiologic reactions, such as rapid pulse, tension, and sweating. Anxiety affects both the mind and the body to varying degrees, and people experience these feelings in their lives regardless of the definition. The current prevalence of anxiety in the population (particularly Americans) is undoubtedly caused by people working longer hours while attempting to balance their relationships with family and home responsibilities. It is not surprising that today more people experience stress and anxiety than ever before, and many more are seeking treatment to relieve their suffering....

Enhancing Quality of Life for Patients with a Functional Disorder

The human organism is bombarded with an incredible variety of stressors at any given time. Stress can be categorized in an equally dizzying number of ways. There are both chronic and acute stressors. There are somatic stressors that push the body away from homeostasis. There are psychogenic stressors that seem to be triggered at the slightest provocation. In fact, according to a national survey, it is estimated that 50 -80 of physical disorders are stress related.1 An elaborate system of hormones and neurotransmitters (coupled with the human penchant for becoming upset about nonphysical stressors) engenders psychogenic stress in human beings more than in any other species of animal.2 There are two basic kinds of psychogenic stress (1) rational (fear) and (2) irrational (anxiety). Regardless of the nature of the stress mental or physical, rational or irrational the body responds to all stress in a fairly predictable manner. In the early 1930s, Selye3 termed this predictable pattern of...

Scientific evaluation of Magnolia bark based on the traditional medicinal use

Interpret the traditional medical use of Magnolia bark as sedative, anticonvulsive, skeletal muscle relaxing, as well as giving relief of gastrointestinal problems caused by mental stress. The present author and his group (Watanabe et al., 1973, 1975, 1983a,b) found a distinct sedative and centrally acting muscle relaxant action of the ether extract from Magnolia bark, as well as an anti-ulcer effect in ulcers induced by stressful treatment in experimental animals (Figure 1.3). After related pharmacological research on these actions, we obtained the active principles of magnolol and honokiol, and recognized the significance of careful examination of ancient references on the basis of modern science. Recently Maruyama and his group have been extending the neuro-scientific research on the active constituents in Magnolia bark (Maruyama and Kuribara, 2000). They have obtained promising results showing remarkable anxiolytic effects of magnolol, honokiol and related compounds. More...

Example 1 Hypericum perforatum

H. perforatum is traditionally used for the treatment of depression, insomnia, and anxiety. A large body of animal and human clinical research supports its antidepressant effects. Several chemical constituents have been identified in H. perforatum. Hypericin, flavanols, and xanthones have been shown to inhibit both monoamine oxidase and or catechol-o-methyltransferase.

Example 2 Cannabis sativa hemp

The herb has received much attention recently because of the detection of an endogen cannabionoid system in the human brain and the immune system. The endogen cannabionoid system plays a significant role in memory, appetite, lactation, and emesis. Muscle-relaxant, appetite-stimulating, and analgesic effects of (-) trans-delta 9- tetrahydrocannabinol or THC (Fig. 5.205, Chapter 5), are of great interest. A comparative study of cannabis has shown better antispastic activity than THC, as measured in an immunogenic model of multiple sclerosis. The synergistic effect demonstrated with cannabis extract is probably due to presence of cannabidiol or CBD (Fig. 6.9) in the extract, which elevates the level of THC in the brain and at the same time, attenuates the undesired anxiolytic effect of THC. At the same time CBD amplifies the antispastic effect of THC. Amplification of the antispastic effect is not understood but it is assumed that CBD increases the permeation of THC into the muscles.

Example 4 Piper methysticum kava kava

The plant is well known for anti-anxiety and sedative effects. The active constituents are known as kavalactones or kavapyrones including kavain, dihydrokavain, yongonin, methysticin, and dihydromethysticin. Kavalactones cross the blood-brain barrier and behavorial effects occur at micromolar concentrations. Kavalactones enhance binding to the GABA A receptor in low micromolar concentrations, through a non-benzodiazepine mechanism. They also block voltage gated Na. sup.+ and Ca. sup.+ channels in micromolar concentrations. Further, kavalactones

Psychology uses of lavender from literature and plays

To calm, that is, to relieve anxiety and stress The second mention relates to calming after a shock 'Her face was crimsoned over, and she exclaimed, in a voice of the greatest emotion, 'Good God Willoughby, what is the meaning of this Have you not received my letters 'But have you not received my notes ' cried Marianne in the wildest anxiety . Marianne, now looking dreadfully white, and unable to stand, sunk into her chair and Elinor, expecting every moment to see her faint, tried to screen her from the observation of others, while reviving her with lavender water.'

Botanical And Nutraceutical Medicines

Several herbal medicines are useful for treating pain the herbs addressed in the following section were selected because of their analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. (There are several other herbs that are useful for treating painful conditions, so this coverage is not complete.) These herbs exert beneficial effects on pain via their analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, and sedative properties. Using a combination of herbs that are best suited for certain conditions produces the best result. It is important to consider how pain affects each individual when offering a course of treatment for each patient.

Emission of organellar signals

The signaling molecule Mg-ProtoIX is exported from the chloroplast (Ankele et al, 2007). Mg-ProtoIX accumulation in norflurazon grown seedlings could be visualized using a laser scanning confocal microscope by taking advantage of the molecules photoreactive properties. The fluorescence images obtained demonstrated that Mg-ProtoIX accumulated in the cytosol (Fig. 11.5, Color plate 20). The relative cytoplasmic accumulation of Mg-ProtoIX was greater in cotyledons, compared to hypocotyls, suggesting that the export mechanisms is more active in leaf tissue and that the export of tetrapyrroles is an active and regulated process. Supporting this conclusion, Beck and colleagues demonstrated in Chlamydomonas that the light responsive gene HSP70, encoding a heat shock protein, could be induced in the dark by feeding Mg-ProtoIX to the cells (Kropat et al, 1995,1997, 2000). However, expression of HSP70 was not induced when the cells were fed the precursor ProtoIX in the dark, with resulting...

Plants Having Stimulating Effects

Stimulants have long been enjoyed by humans, for they give a sense of well-being and exhilaration, self-confidence, and power, and they alleviate fatigue and drowsiness. For most, depending on the dose, there is a price to be paid for their use increased agitation, apprehension, and anxiety, mild mania (flight of ideas), as well as increased tolerance and often dependency. All of the stimulants described next have these positive and negative effects, except tobacco. Tobacco. Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum, family Solanaceae) leaves are smoked or chewed to act as a stimulant, depressant, or tranquilizer. Tobacco with the addictive alkaloid nicotine is perhaps the most physiologically damaging substance generally used by humans. Its use is a direct cause of lung and other cancers, coronary artery disease, and emphysema.

Relaxing sedative antistress anticonvulsive and spasmolytic properties

Furthermore they performed some (simple) mathematical computations faster and more accurately upon aromatherapeutical treatment (Diego et al., 1998). These results are in agreement with the findings of Kerl (1997) who tested the efficiency of children's memory in an elementary school. Especially anxious and timid pupils, who had bad scores on account of their inability to recite a paragraph learnt by heart, increased their marks after inhalation of lavender oil, which was presented on common olfactory strips to the children. Pupils who were originally self-assured and or lethargic showed no increase, rather even a decrease, in their marks. Therefore, the anxiety-relieving potential of this EO was shown. A similar goal was achieved by an investigation by Ludvigson et al. (1989) where the effects of the odours of lavender and cloves on cognitive skills of college students were studied. Lavender adversely influenced arithmetic reasoning. Discussions raised by the results included...

Research findings on psychological effects of lavender

This effect resembles the potentiation of GABAA receptors by benzodiazepine, barbiturate, steroids and anesthetics, which is associated with their anxiolytic, anticonvulsant and sedative effects. The sedative effects of lavender identified above suggest that it might offer a less invasive, and more economic, means of improving sleep and reducing stress and anxiety than current drugs, and without their side-effects, for example, benzodiazepines may cause residual daytime sedation, performance decrements and anterograde amnesia (Vogel, 1992). Accordingly, clinical studies have been carried out to examine this possibility. In contrast to these two small studies, Dunn et al. (1995) randomly allocated 122 patients to a massage, an aromatherapy massage with 1 per cent lavender oil or a rest period group, each receiving 1 3 treatment sessions of 15 30 min over a 5-day period. Physiological (BP, HR and resp.rate), psychological (mood and anxiety) and behavioural (motor and facial) measures...

Glycine And Dimethylglycine

Glycine binds avidly with receptors in the locus ceruleus, a group of cell bodies located in the pons of the midbrain, and inhibits noradrenergic cell discharge. The locus ceruleus contains mainly norepinephrine neurons and is considered to be a key brain center for anxiety, arousal, fear, and vigilance. Norepinephrine released from the locus ceruleus affects other parts of the brain (namely the nucleus accumbens), which can then lead to more feelings of anxiety and panic as well as an increased sense of energy. The locus ceruleus may be up-regulated in addictive states as well. Addictions, Stress, Anxiety, and Insomnia Glycine, because of its effects on this one area of the brain, can be used as an adjunctive treatment in several conditions. In people suffering from drug and alcohol dependency, it is thought that this area of the brain is periodically up-regulated, leading to excessive norepinephrine release. People who become dependent on substances may use drugs or alcohol to...

Applied Aspects Of Bee Pollen

Experiments reveal that bee pollen is an amazing biological stimulant with healing properties. In his book Sexual Nutrition, Morton Walker described the effects of bee pollen on both animals and humans with a variety of medical disorders. Treatment with bee pollen improved energy levels, relieved constipation and diarrhoea and acted as a tranquilizer for hyperactive patients. Other effects were increased blood haemoglobin and stress reduction at the cellular level.

Use Of Carnivorous Plants

Macerated Drosera leaves or extracts of leaves were used externally to treat warts, corns, and sunburn. Extracts or teas made from the leaves were used to treat internal disorders including tuberculosis, asthma, whooping cough, catarrh of the lower respiratory tract, arteriosclerosis, eye and ear inflammations, liver pain, morning sickness, dropsy, various stomach maladies, syphilis, toothaches, intestinal problems, as a tranquilizer, diuretic, and it was believed to have some aphrodisiacal power. When homeopathy was in vogue, the extract was also used to cause irritation of the skin because it was believed that if the skin was inflamed, an agent which caused inflammation would cure it. This is the theory behind producing and using vaccines for disease control. Scientists have discovered an anti-spasmodic agent in some Drosera species.

Investigations of Lavandula essential oils

Macht and Ting (1921) trained rats to negotiate a maze to find food and then determined the effect of exposure to the vapour from essential oils on the time taken to reach the food and the number of errors occurring. Most of their experiments were on valerian and various incense, but three rats were exposed to a tincture of lavender and in each case the time to reach the food doubled, with two animals also making errors in the maze. From these results is was concluded by the authors that lavender had a slight sedative action and it was suggested that the vapour from essential oils might be stimulating olfactory sense organs directly. Delaveau et al. (1989) administered lavender essence (L. angustifolia P. Miller) orally to mice and observed changes in activity to electrical stimulation, which were interpreted as an anxiolytic effect. In addition, it was shown that lavender essence enhanced the hypnotic action of pentobarbitone. Such an effect on barbiturate sleeping time may indicate...

Lavender oil and its supposed functions

'Lavender helps balance the mind and emotions' (Westwood, 1991) and has 'immunity' as its key word it is indicated for over-analytical, anxiety, fear of failure, hyperactivity, hysteria, imbalance, immune system, impatience, insecurity, insomnia, irritation, irrationality, mood swings, overwork, panic, paranoia, possessiveness, greed for power, feeling pressurized, lack of relaxation, stage fright, tension, poor time-management, lack of tolerance and tranquillity, workaholic, worry. The physical conditions indicating its use are baldness, immune system, sore throats, stiffness, dermatitis, eczema, itchy or scarred skin and general first aid.

Treatment

The antipsychotic drug risperidone has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating ASD marked by self-injurious behavior, severe tantrums, and aggression in children ages 5-16. Risperidone has been found to improve social responsiveness and nonverbal communication, and to decrease hyperactivity and aggression in these children.60 Treatment with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) also modifies some symptoms of ASD, including anxiety and repetitive behavior, and improves global functioning.61

Botanical Medicines

Lavender (Lavendula officinalis) is a botanical used for mild relaxing properties and is used traditionally for addressing symptoms such as insomnia, depression, restlessness, and nervousness. Preparations of Lavender are frequently derived from the plant oil for inhalation, and internal ingestion is contraindicated. The constituents of lavender oil lead to relaxation and decreased alertness when inhaled.38 Inhalation of lavender oil may decrease symptoms of anxiety in manic patients. Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is another herb often utilized for mild calming effects and the ability to decrease alertness,39 which is useful for treating nervous anxiety. The terpenes are a constituent of lemon balm and are thought to act on some of the inhibitory neurons such as GABA in the brain, thereby eliciting a calming effect.40 One study using both lemon balm and valerian (Valeriana officinalis) demonstrated improvements in the amount and the quality of sleep in subjects who took the...

Depression

Nearly 9.5 of the adult population suffers with depression in a given year, which equates to approximately 19 million American adults with the condition.42 Women are affected nearly twice as frequently (12 ) as men (6.6 ) by depressive disorders each year, which is equivalent to 12.4 million women and 6.4 million men in the United States.23 Depressive disorder, including major depressive disorder, dysthymic disorder, and bipolar disorder, are the leading causes of disability in the United States and other developed nations, with major depressive disorder ranking number one. Often, patients who suffer from depressive disorders also have additional medical conditions43 such as anxiety. Major depressive disorder can develop at any age, although it occurs most commonly during the mid 20s. Dysthymic disorder, however, often develops in childhood, adolescence, or early adulthood.25 Depressive disorder is a mental illness that has both mental and physical symptomology and can disrupt every...

Ltheanine

Theanine is an amino acid found in high concentrations in green tea. Theanine can pass through the brain-blood barrier and may play an agonist or an antagonist of some receptors. Research has shown that L-theanine supplementation does provide some relaxing effects possibly by increasing levels of GABA and serotonin.60 A small study showed that administration of 200 mg of L-theanine increased alpha brain wave activity and induced a sense of relaxation.61 L-theanine is also known to block the binding of L-glutamic acid to glutamate receptors in the brain. A double-blind placebo-controlled study showed that L-theanine intake resulted in a reduction in the heart rate and salivary immunoglobulin A responses to an acute stress task compared to the placebo group, likely attributable to an attenuation of sympathetic nervous activation suggesting anti-stress activity of theanine.62 Using animal models, L-theanine has been shown to cause dopamine release from dopaminergic neurons and may...

Niacin

Niacin (vitamin B3) is integrated into the coenzymes, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP), which are necessary for amino acid, fat, carbohydrate metabolism, and producing cellular energy. Niacin supplementation is often used to address hypercholesterolemia and as an anxiolytic.77 Isoniazid for treating tuberculosis has been shown to inhibit the conversion of tryptophan to niacin and may cause pellagra.78

Euphorbiaceae

The harmala alkaloids are cholinergic and antagonistic to benzodiazepines (which are anxiolytic, anticonvulsive, muscle-relaxing and sleep-inducing). They are a group of substances with a broad spectrum of activity differing from compound to Hypnotics produce sleep (without abolishing the reflexes). Sedatives and tranquillizers decrease watchfulness and calm down motor activity and agitation, and tranquillizers more particularly weaken exaggerated emotional reactions and attenuate restlessness. Even in strong doses they are not hypnotic but some relax skeletal muscles (Lechat et al., 1978). These drugs are used especially in alleviation of the symptoms of schizophrenia and allied disorders and have also been called 'anxiolytics'.

Allergy

In order to evaluate the allergy test accurately, certain medications such as antihistamines and tranquilizers should not be taken 48 hours before the allergy test is performed. Testing should not be done if a patient is running a fever or has an attack of asthma or hay fever. Antihistamines suppress the weal and flare response. Decongestants, cromolyn, corticosteroids, and bronchodilators do not affect skin test results, and need not be discontinued before testing.

Aromatase Inhibitors

Perhaps the most powerful of the naturally derived aromatase inhibitors in vitro, chrysin is thought to be one of the most potent inhibitors of human estrogen aromatase. Chrysin belongs to the flavone class of flavonoids and is derived from several plant species, the primary of which is Passiflora coerulea. Other sources include geranium species, such as lemon geranium (Pelargonium crispum), honey and bee propolis, and the Pinaceae species, which include pine trees. The ability of chrysin to inhibit aromatization of androstenedione and testosterone has been demonstrated in vitro however, in vivo studies are necessary. Other investigators have noted a phytoestrogenic effect29 (binds weakly to alpha and beta estrogen receptors), and antioxidant30 (inhibits xanthine oxidase and the consequent formation of uric acid and related reactive oxygen species) and anxiolytic31 actions (binds to the benzodiazepine receptor'' portion of gamma-aminobutyric acid a receptors. Much of the research on...

Discussion

M. rostrata has been used as an alternative to genuine species of Magnolia barks in China. For anti-anxiety applications, M. rostrata might be superior to the genuine species, since Kuribara et al. (1999a,b) have identified that honokiol, but not magnolol, is the active compound for the anti-anxiety effects and CNS sedation. M. sprengeri Pamp., M. biondii Pamp., M. denudata Desr., and M. liliflora Desr. contain no magnolol or honokiol they should be classified as adulterants of Magnolia bark.
