Relora® - Phellodendron amurense and Magnolia officinalis
Herbs M-R
Written by Maff     November 15, 2007    
I've used Relora on and off for a couple of years now at times when I am particular stressed and really need something to help me cope with it. At a dose of 250mg 3 times per day it is very effective for this.

When taking Relora the effects become noticeable pretty quickly, after around 24 hours. I usually only use it for a period of about a month at a time but the effects do seem to gradually increase the longer I take it.

I have taken benzodiazepines such as Valium for stress and anxiety in the past and the effects from Relora are very similar to those from these drugs. Both provide a feeling of nerves being calmed but do tend to leave you feeling a little drowsy and foggy. This is perhaps just a sign that the dose needs adjustment however. Perhaps as a result of this effect Relora helps me get off to sleep and stay asleep throughout the night.

This is a great herbal stress/sleep aid which is relatively inexpensive. As such I'd recommend it as a safe alternative to addictive pharmaceutical solutions for stress and related conditions.
