Experiments have shown that the ethanol extract of Cortex Magnoliae Officinalis 5 g/kg, 15 g/kg may significantly inhibit HCl-induced gastric ulcer in mice as well as Cassia angustifolia Leaf-induced experimental diarrhea in mice. 3 g/kg and 10 g/kg have a marked choleretic effect on rats. These results show that Cortex Magnoliae Officinalis helps improve the condition of digestion.
