Relora® is a trademarked combination of two Chinese tree barks used traditionally promote healthy reactions to stress.*
Remora combines Magnolia officinalis, known for supporting normal adrenal function, with Phellodendron amurense, known for supporting a calm state of mind.*
When used together, these Chinese tree barks are ideal for supporting well-being and stress management.
Relora® combines centuries of Eastern medicine tradition with cutting edge plant technology. This combination of tree barks helps to balance the balance the HPA axis (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis), which is a central hormone pathway of the body.* By balancing the HPA axis, Relora helps promote healthy levels of stress hormones, healthy sleep and energy levels.*
When feeling stressed, the body goes into a “fight or flight” response and secretes increased amounts of stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline. Stress hormones are released through the HPA axis (a central hormone pathway), which includes the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenal glands.
When stress levels are high, they lead to an imbalance in the HPA axis.
Like all normalizing and balancing herbs, the risk of side effects with Relora is very low. As always, you should consult with your physician about your personal health plan.
Bacopa helps maintain a healthy nervous system, and promotes sleep and a calm state of mind.*

Passion flower has long been used for relieving nervous tension, improving sleep, relaxing muscles, and relieving pain.*
