Treatment Information
Phellodendron amurense and Magnolia officianalis are plant extracts that have traditionally been used by Chinese practitioners of herbal medicine, and now comprises the proprietary blend that comprises Relora. Its chief function is to provide mood elevation, relaxation and normalization of the function of adrenal hormones, which when out of balance lead to over-eating from stress. Eventhough it is listed as a non-narcotic, non-sedative medication, it also helps in alleviating insomnia in its range of actions. The manner in which Relora works is by altering functions in the central nervous system by binding itself to anxiety related stress receptors and hence promoting deep relaxation and freedom from anxiety. Additionally, Relora does not cause daytime drowsiness due to its nonsedative features. DHEA and cortisol - the two adrenal hormones that are chiefly responsible for high stress levels, are normalized by Relora. Studies conducted relveal that patients derive positive results by treating stress with Relora - clinical research conducted at Living Longer Institute in Cincinnati Ohia validate this scientifically. A happy by-product of treatment with Relora also reveals that patients have noted marked weight loss since it prevents stress related eating habits. Of the study conducted, 78% patients reported weight loss from Relora.

User Comments about Relora
24 Jan 2014 This was recommended by my naturopath for stress and irritability. Also I have had a bit of weight gain, 20lbs. I noticed a gentle difference with this medication. Definitely helpful. I ran out of it and didn't bother to get more. I noticed my irritability come back almost immediately. So I went and got some more today! I really do believe that this has helped me with mood swings, irritability, ability to deal with stress, and in a small way it has helped with my weight. It is not a miracle drug and the effects are not intense , but there is definitely a nice calming affect with this supplement.

07 Apr 2013 I really loved the way I was feeling taking a combination of Relora and L Theanine at night. I believe it helped quite a bit with my stress and racing brain plus i think it did help decrease my cravings for sweets. unfortunately after taking them for a little over a year i developed bad heartburn and gerd. im not 100% sure its from the Relora but i did some research and it has caused it in some people. After stopping taking it for a few days my gerd got better and has basically disappeared. i would love to be able to take it again but am nervous about the heartburn returning. Has any one else had this side effect?

14 Jan 2013 I overdosed on relora and I think I took about 20 tablets. It gave me heart palpitations, made me feel nauseous, made me feel weak, and made me lose my motivation. On the other hand, I don't really feel hungry and I can't eat. I don't know what to do. And I got no sleep.
