- What are some of the active ingredients?
The formula contains l-Theanine, GABA, magnesium, taurine, and holy basil. Relora® is a combination of the extracts of two Chinese botanicals—magnolia bark and phellodendron. Recent preliminary research indicates that this combination may be helpful for relaxation and stress reduction.
- How does the product work?
Relora® has been shown in clinical research to help reduce mild anxiety in stressed people. L-Theanine is known to relax the mind, and in preclinical research it has been shown to increase levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine and GABA. GABA is an important neurotransmitter in the brain for filtering excess “neuronal static.” It works in synergy with taurine and magnesium to calm the central nervous system. Holy Basil is a primary botanical used in India to reduce stress, and preliminary studies suggest it may lower cortisol production by the adrenals.
- How can this product help me?
Stress impacts the stability and balance of bodily functions. Stress triggers a biochemical fight or flight response that alters our biochemistry to give the body the energy or strength needed to respond. Our body responds with adrenaline, increased cortisol hormones, a faster heart rate, and nervous function changes. While some stress can be beneficial, consistent stress over time impacts the body’s biochemical balance and can lead to a number of health challenges. This product, with a complex array of natural ingredients, can provide the tools to help you gently soothe away occasional tension.
