Relora supplement questions
Melatonin has always worked great for me over the years. Now I am thinking about using Relora. I found Insta Sticks with Relora with Citrus Flavor at a pharmacy. It is for making a drink for quicker absorption. Was wondering if you have made any studies or have any opinions on this supplement.
We have seen one study with Relora supplement as of March 2010.
Effect of a proprietary Magnolia and Phellodendron
extract on stress levels in healthy women: a pilot, double-blind,
placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Nutr J. 2008; Kalman DS, Feldman S, Feldman R, Schwartz HI, Krieger DR, Garrison R. Director, Nutrition, Miami Research Associates, Miami, FL, USA.
This study measured the effects of a proprietary blend of extracts of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense Relora on anxiety, stress and sleep in healthy premenopausal women. This randomized, parallel, placebo controlled clinical study was conducted with healthy, overweight (BMI 25 to 34.9), premenopausal female adults, between the ages of 20 and 50 years, who typically eat more in response to stressful situations and scores above the national mean for women on self-reporting anxiety. The intervention was Relora (250 mg capsules) or identical placebo 3 times daily for 6 weeks. The intent-to-treat population consisted of 40 subjects with 26 participants completing the study. There were no significant side effects. Relora was effective, in comparison to placebo, in reducing temporary, transitory anxiety as measured by the Spielberger STATE anxiety questionnaire. It was not effective in reducing long-standing feelings of anxiety or depression as measured using the Spielberger TRAIT questionnaire. Other assessments conducted in this study including salivary cortisol and amylase levels, appetite, body morphology and sleep quality/latency were not significantly changed by Relora in comparison to placebo. This pilot study indicates that Relora may offer some relief for premenopausal women experiencing mild transitory anxiety. There were no safety concerns or significant Relora side effects observed in this study.
