Used by the Chinese herbal medicine specialists for helping people relax through normalizing the adrenal hormones. It is also used to reduce the over-eating imbalances usually caused by stress.
A study at the Living Longer Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio has validated the stress reduction benefits of Relora.
Relora is a non-narcotic, non-sedative extract from two plants, the Magnolia and the Philodendron. These two extracts when combined create mood elevation, relaxation and freedom from anxiety. Since Relora is non-sedative, it does not cause daytime drowsiness but does alleviate insomnia.
A side benefit is weight-loss. This is due to the stress reduction and the elimination of the stress-related eating habits.
There are no known side effects for Relora.
There are warnings however.
- Not recommended in pregnant women and nursing mothers;
- Not recommended in people that are being administered MAOI or any other anxiety-depression medications;
- Not recommended in people with any auto-immune disease and are on prescription medication for the same.
- Alcohol and caffeine should be avoided since they counteract its calming effect.
