NOW Relora 300mg 60Vcaps
Helps to alleviate symptoms associated with stress. Excessive stress is one of the most common conditions reported to health care practitioners and consumers are looking for natural self-care options with few side effects. Relora, popularized by the medical media, is a product in high demand for stress relief.
Relora is a clinically tested herbal formula containing extracts of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense, two herbs that work synergistically to help control stress-related symptoms, including irritability, emotional swings, muscle tension, restlessness, poor concentration, and interrupted sleep, as well as stress-related cravings and overeating. Magnolia bark contains the active constituents magnolol, dihydroxydihdromagnolol, honokiol, and dihydrohonokiol. Magnolol seems to have central nervous system effects, antiplatelet effects, anti-inflammatory effects, and smooth muscle relaxant effects. Magnolia bark is an ingredient in the traditional Chinese and Japanese (Kampo) medicines Hange-koboku-to, which is composed of 5 plant extracts, and Saiboku-to, which is composed of 10 plant extracts. These are used to decrease anxiety and nervous tension and to improve sleep. Honokiol, a constituent of magnolia bark, appears to cause these effects. Phellodendron contains berberine, palmitine, and phellodendrine, and other alkaloids. Berberine has anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, antisecretory, fungicidal, antimycotic, antileishmanial, and cardiovascular effects. Relora appears to work by binding to stress receptors in the nervous system to promote relaxation and feelings of well-being, while ignoring receptors that would cause sedation. It has been shown to be useful in modulating anxiety states.
