This natural stress fighter is a blend of two traditional Asian barks, phellodendron amurense and magnolia officinalis. These two barks have been used as remedies for stress, occasional anxiety and sleeplessness for centuries in China*.
In this post, we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about Relora© – what it is, how it’s used, and any additional information you’ll need to use this anti-stress ingredient effectively.
Let’s get started!
Stress is an unavoidable part of life, which means you’ll have to come up with a strong strategy to prevent it from wreaking havoc on your body and mind. When stress gets unmanageable and out of control, it can quickly start to have a major negative impact on three key systems within your body – your endocrine system, your immune system, and your nervous system.
Chronic stress – the stress that rarely goes away and feels impossible to deal with – can have some major negative effects on these three systems within your body, especially in the long run, leading to chronic diseases
To prevent stress from negatively affecting your body and mind, it’s essential to build up a comprehensive calming routine. This routine can include stress-supporting supplements, but it should also include healthy habits that help to calm your mind and keep you focused and energized throughout the day. These habits can include meditation, frequent exercise, eating a healthy, balanced diet, getting enough sleep each night, and more.
Natural ingredients and healthy habits make some of the best defenses against the stresses of everyday life. While many people try to cope with stress in unhealthy ways, it’s much better to take good care of your body and mind and defend yourself against getting overwhelmed with beneficial practices and natural ingredients. That way, you’ll be taking better care of yourself and conquering stress the right way!
Relora© is a natural proprietary blend of plant extracts from Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense, used for symptoms associated with stress, such as nervous tension, irritability, concentration difficulties and occasional sleeplessness. This combination of extracts can have a profound impact on your stress levels. So just how can this natural supplement help you calm down when you’re feeling overwhelmed?
To understand Relora©’s effects on stress, we first need to discuss how stress impacts your nervous system.
When you’re in highly stressful circumstances, your nervous system triggers the release of a chemical called cortisol. Cortisol helps your body and mind properly respond to stressful situations, but too much of it can lead to serious problems. For one, excess cortisol production can lead to a condition known as adrenal fatigue, which is associated with chronic stress and tends to be a major contributing factor of exhaustion, weight problems, and more.
So, how does relora factor into your nervous system’s stress response? Research has shown that this natural supplement can lower cortisol levels, which makes it a powerful line of defense against chronic stress. Cortisol is often referred to as one of the "stress hormones" because of its connection to the stress response.
When you’re extremely stressed, your nervous system kicks into gear with what is known as the fight-or-flight response. This reactionary defense mechanism is intended to protect you in situations that pose a threat to your life. The fight-or-flight response involves high production of cortisol, epinephrine (adrenaline), and norepinephrine (noradrenaline) which can be extremely helpful if you need to act fast to save your life.
However, chronic stress can engage your fight-or-flight response even if there isn’t an imminent threat present.
A constantly engaged fight-or-flight response can lead to major problems, including feeling extremely anxious and on-edge. Taking a relora supplement can help to keep your mind calm and at peace, providing a buffer against anxiety and overwhelm. While the supplement can’t stop your fight-or-flight response from kicking in, it can help to keep your mind more at ease in the midst of stressful situations.
Research regarding the impact of Relora© on stress and cortisol levels has involved use of between 250 and 500 mg of the supplement. Relora© can be taken multiple times daily, but your total intake in a day should not exceed 500 mg. While Relora© is considered safe, it’s important to stay within this range to avoid increasing your risk of uncomfortable side effects.
In addition, Relora© can be used with other natural stress-fighting ingredients to calm your mind, both during the day and at night. It may be helpful to take Relora© twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Taking Relora© in the evening may help you wind down before bed, which is why we’ve included it in our UNWIND formula alongside other calming ingredients like chamomile, L-Theanine, valerian root, and more.
If you’re taking Relora© at night, it’s best to take a dose between 30 minutes and an hour before your bedtime. Leaving this window between your dose and your bedtime gives the supplement time to work. The same goes for R3SET’s UNWIND supplements.
If you’re considering using Relora© to manage your stress, it’s important to take any prescription medications that you take into consideration before adding this supplement into your daily routine.
While Relora© is considered a safe and low-risk supplement to take, it is not always suitable for everyone. If you’re taking prescription medication, make sure to talk to your doctor before adding Relora© into your daily routine.
Relora’s© positive impact on stress makes it a great ingredient to include in your bedtime routine. If you’re using relora and other natural ingredients to help you sleep, it’s a great idea to also start practicing a well-rounded calming bedtime regimen. Taking active steps to decompress and de-stress before bed can help you get the rest you need, which in turn sets you up to more effectively fight stress during the day.
After taking Relora© and any other night time supplements, you can get prepared for bedtime with calming rituals like reading, journaling, or meditation. You may also find that drinking a cup of herbal tea 30 minutes to an hour before bed helps you relax and unwind. R3SET’s calming UNWIND supplements include chamomile, a stress-fighting flower that can also be steeped and enjoyed as a hot cup of bedtime tea.
Relora’s benefits for sleep are backed by science. Magnolia bark, one of the components in relora, has been linked with increased levels of gamma-aminobutyric acid in your brain. GABA is a neurotransmitter that binds to specific proteins in your brain called GABA receptors, producing a calming effect. Taking Relora© before bed, with its GABA-boosting effects, can be a great defense against restlessness and sleeplessness.
In addition to taking Relora© at night, you can also take GABA itself as a calming supplement. The amino acid is found in some foods, and it can be taken as a standalone supplement or in R3SET’s UNWIND supplements.
Relora’s© is one of the good choices of natural ingredients to take for reduced stress and better sleep. You can take it multiple times daily to reap its stress-fighting benefits, and it can be safely taken alongside other natural stress-fighting ingredients.
One of the best ways to get multiple calming ingredients in one easy-to-take supplement is through R3SET’s CALM and UNWIND capsules. These capsules include Relora©, PharmaGABA™, a form derived from fermented kimchi, and a number of other natural stress fighters, all in one place.
