Source Naturals - Relora 250 mg - 45 Tablets
Source Naturals Relora is a patent-pending plant extract of Phellodendron amurense and Magnolia officinalis that may help to relieve stress and minimize stress-induced eating. Weight gain can be associated with emotional over-eating for people with stressful lifestyles. Preliminary research suggests that Relora may help regulate cortisol levels in the body that are associated with stress-related weight gain. The bark of Magnolia officinalis has been used in traditional Chinese herbalism for centuries for stress reduction and muscle tension.
Stress and Overeating
Stress is ever-present in our society. When confronted with stressful situations, our bodies undergo what is commonly known as the “fight or flight” response. A series of physiological reactions is initiated, which begins with the secretion by the adrenal glands of stress-specific hormones, including cortisol.
The “fight or flight” reaction was invaluable during prehistoric times, but is not as useful today, when the same stress-related biochemical changes leave us powered up for intense action, with no appropriate outlet. High or chronic levels of circulating stress chemicals can cumulatively affect our body systems—sometimes with negative results.
Recent studies indicate that overeating is associated with high cortisol levels induced by stress.
All-Natural Herbal Blend
Relora contains a proprietary blend of patent-pending extracts from magnolia bark, Magnolia officinalis, and phellodendrum bark, Phellodendrum amurense. Both of these barks have been used for centuries by Chinese herbalists for a variety of conditions. Recent research by Next Pharmaceuticals, Inc., the developer of Relora, has shown that these patent-pending extracts have excellent stress-reducing properties and can normalize cortisol levels in stressed individuals. Animal studies have shown that the natural plant extracts in Relora can safely lower stress levels without causing sedation. In human studies, 8 out of 10 stressed individuals felt more relaxed with Relora. Part of a Healthy Lifestyle Source Naturals Relora can help you deal with stress-related overeating when taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
