Relora is a supplement that’s been on our radar for a while, so we decided to research the ingredients, side-effects, clinical research, and customer-service quality. Then we perused as many customer reviews as we could find from the web and condensed it all here for you to make an informed decision about Relora.
What You Need to Know
First of all, Relora is a supplement in pill form, made with Magnolia Officinalis and Phellodendron Amurense. They often come in 120-count bottles and can be purchased from drug stores and online for about $20.
The product (with an official home page on InterHealthUSA.com) can be found as an ingredient in plenty of other dietary supplements, like Solanova Bio, and it claims to act as a stress reliever and a means of reducing cortisol levels. By reducing chronic stress, Relora can cut down on cravings and overall calorie intake (theoretically leading to weight loss).
We like the ease of using Relora, the low cost of the product, and the natural ingredients, but read on …
Side-Effects–“Worth the Discomfort?”
Our first concern with Relora is the potential for negative side-effects. “If you regularly take Relora, you could improve mood and stress levels,” said our research editor, “but some of the side-effects we’ve seen online lead me to believe that the cons may outweigh the pros for many people.” Take a look at some of the reviews we found online.
“I received upper leg rashes on two different occasions when taking it. Thought it could be a result of washing powders, but after stopping Relora the rash went away,” said one user.
“I did feel a sense of being more relaxed, but I felt quite heavily fogged and drowsy for multiple hours during the day from this,” said another.

Inconsistent Results–Another Concern
After reading scores of reviews, we have realized that Relora doesn’t exactly work for everyone. We noticed many users who were frustrated at their results. “I did not find that it did anything at all. But at least it was cheap,” said one customer online.
“I tried this and saw no difference at all in levels of stress or anxiety and such,” said another. In reading through forums, many customers agree. Some people were less harsh on the product, but they seemed equally unconvinced. “I thought at first that they were working, but now I’m not so sure,” said one person.
Our research has shown that if there is some particular part of a diet program that is especially troublesome (a set of irritating side-effects or a warranted fear that the product won’t work), then the likelihood of long-term success is slim. If Relora does in fact cause unpleasant side-effects for many people, this could be problematic.
Fortunately for Relora, there is a small amount of clinical research that corroborates the product’s claims. The National Library of Medicine did a study on the two extracts in Relora and found that they do, in fact, relieve stress and cortisol levels in some patients. The problem is that many of the fat-burning products that Relora is featured in are not clinically verified, and Relora itself has a spotty record in user reviews. There also aren’t any reviews on Relora’s main website page. Are the potential side-effects worth the mediocre chance at success?
The Bottom Line
We were intrigued by the possibility that Relora might have a positive impact on someone trying to lose weight, but our research hasn’t given us as much reason for optimism as we had hoped. The potential side-effects (rashes, itchiness, and others found online) looked very unpleasant, and we were surprised at the number of reviews that claimed the product didn’t work for them at all. If you want a supplement that won’t give you side-effects and can really set you on a path to burning fat, we recommend you look elsewhere.
Leptigen is among the best products we’ve seen in 2015. It blends four ingredients that have been shown in published clinical research to boost weight loss by accelerating metabolism. We haven’t even found any side-effects online. Another good sign: the makers of Leptigen are offering a special trial offer.
