Relora is an ingredient that is added to dietary supplements in order to assist men and women with weight loss. It is a “patented blend of plant extracts” and is claimed to aid with appetite suppression and stress management. This product is manufactured by Next Pharmaceuticals and is claimed to not cause drowsiness in users. One oral supplement containing Relora is Solanova Bio, which is sold in capsule form and contains 250mg of Relora per serving. The retail cost of this diet product is $19.99 and it sells via Drugstore.com and a number of other websites. There do not appear to be any customer testimonials posted on the official Relora website.

The website for Relora states that one of the primary causes for weight gain is stress. Therefore, it helps to balance hormone levels within the body in order to reduce stress. This is the goal of Relora supplements. By balancing the user’s hormones, Relora aims to minimize belly fat and even curb cravings. This means that the user will potentially consume fewer calories overall, and therefore lose excess body fat. Products such as Solanova Bio that contain Relora are offered with a money-back guarantee when purchased through websites like Drugstore.com. The key components of Relora are stated to be various plant extracts, although surprisingly few details on these plants are available.

    So far so good. I have been using relora for about 3weeks. I noticed that I am more calm, relaxed and my 4 pm stress eating has stopped. I seem to not have the desire to eat constantly since I have been taking relora. I am happy thus far.

    No one seems to know the preferred dosage of Relora.
    Can I take 2 or 3 a day of 350 mg capsules?

    Attention: every BODY is different and thus not all “avg doses” work for everyone. USE CAUTION and do your research. Be SKEPTICAL and be OPEN-MINDED. I am 50 yr old female with auto-immune Hashimoto Thyroiditis hypothyroidism. I take synthroid and cytomel daily. I take natural herbs and vitamins/minerals daily. However I am VERY cautious about never taken “average dose” until I test out the product so I always take half the regular dose.
    I was gaining weight and under stress and though I was taking Nature’s Sunshine Nutri-Calm (B complex with 1000% of avg daily allowance) once a day before going to bed it was clear I needed a boost during this extra stressful time.
    So I started taking Source Naturals Relora 250mg. Again because you have to be smart, even though the bottle says 3x a day i only took only one at night with Nutri-Calm. It worked perfectly at the perfect balance. I LOVE RELORA and I LOVE my Nutri-Calm.

    I am on hormone replacement therapy. Since I started taking Relora my breasts seem to be getting larger.Does Relora interfere or enhance the hormones that I take. I am concerned since I have a history of post-menopausal cancer in my family.

    Do not take Relora is you have an Auto Immune Disease. It can lower your blood pressure and cause great damage.

    I have an auto immund disease. I took 5 Relora pills over 1 week. I got up one night and became very disoriented. I fell back and tried to get up to get help. I bumped into everything and finally passed out. I ended up in the ER with low blood pressure, something that isn’t normal for me. I had several injuries. A pharmist recommended Relora to me for stress and to help me sleep and later told me that I shouldn’t take it during the day. It is a good pharmacy generally. I am not overweight. I wouldn’t advise taking it if you have an auto-immune disease or have had any problems with drug interactions and/or blood pressure problems.

    While I can not answer any of the recent questions, I can attest that Relora does indeed have calming effects.

    I am a Driving Instructor and have two elderly relatives (76 yo Mother and 95 yo Aunt) living with me and I found myself more and more getting irritated over little things and stayed irritated for quite some time. Also, when I woke up in the mornings, my bed looked like a war zone from the tossing and turning (if I woke up early and could not get back to sleep, I was tired the rest of the day, even with a cat-nap later on).

    After taking the first pill (there is a bit of bitter taste, when popping the pill into your mouth (I found that rinsing the pill off with water helps a lot), but there is no aftertaste), I found myself to be much more relaxed (slower to get upset and quicker to calm down) and am sleeping much better (if I wake up early, I feel rested).

    Personally, I have not noticed any weight loss, but my 76 yo mother is taking Relora too. She is much calmer when dealing with her sister and she has already lost over 3 pounds in about 10 days.

    I heard about Relora and its benefits a few weeks ago from a nutritionist on the Marilyn Denis show. Where can I buy this in Ontario? Can I buy this in store or only online. I’ve checked out a few drug stores and I haven’t found it yet. Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Lisa

    Not sure where you are in Ontario but I Found it today (Nature’s Harmony brand) at Real Canadian Superstore in the Organics/vitamins section. You also try Loblaws or can also order it online from well.ca and nutrition.ca.

    Try taking 2 at bedtime and 1 in the am upon rising. This is the dosage recommended by Dr Natasha Turner in The Hormone Diet book.

    I can honestly attest that Relora is the only herbal supplement that has helped my anxiety and allows me to lead a normal life. Before I had so much stress, anxiety, and fear (of everything)! … right away I noticed a calm feeling when I took it in the morning. 2 capsules in the A.M. balance me and allow me to enjoy a tea or coffee without sending my body into a caffeinated panic. Seriously recommend Relora to anyone who has tried prescription medications, like myself, that didn’t make any difference.

    I have just started Relora. I can’t swallow the large tablet and have tried cutting them in half. Can you dissolve these in water and still have the pill do it’s job? I hope this isn’t a dumb question. Or is there another route I can take? Thank you!

    Relora was highly recommended to me to lower my cortisol levels and maybe get rid of some excess belly fat. I take 5mg of Lexapro which I’m hoping to wean off of. It does say to contact doctor if taking any other meds. Just wondering if anyone had experience with a low dosage of Lexapro and Relora.
    Thanks

    good question Liz. i take 10 mg of lexapro. do i need to stop taking lexapro before i start relora?

    I was told by my nutritionist that one should not take Relora if you are on any type of antidepressants. They interact negatively with one another.

    Kim

    I take 15mg of Lexapro a day. Tried taking Relora and became Queen Grump, as if I weren’t on Lexapro at all. No thanks! And that was two days if Relora over a week. Day one of both meds followed by a day of edgy moodiness. No Relora for a couple days, all good. Day two if both meds, Despicable Me came back. I’d be interested to know if others have had a similar experience. For now, no Relora for me!

    [Reply]

    Melody

    I would be interested to see if you stopped the Lexapro and tried the Relora by itself, a natural antidepressant would be the way to go, not as many possible horrible side effects!

    Vicki, coffee and soda may affect your weight loss as relora works on reducing cortisol levels. This begins with controlling blood sugar levels, eating little and often and try to have as many wholefoods as you can in your diet. When blood sugar drops adrenalin and cortisol are released. Adrenalin is expelled from the body in a few hours but cortisol takes days and a build up can become toxic in the body. It is a stress hormone and quite simply tells your body to hold on to everything, thus no weight loss.
    Take the relora, try to eat well, try to cut coffee down to 1 cup a day and if you can’t cut out soda then limit the amount also.
    Becca, it definitely won’t affect your birth control, it’s dealing with stress, not reproductive hormones.
    Hope this helps and good luck.
    Hope this helps.

    My husband is into health and we were discussing the fact that my office job is so boring that all i do is eat.Im not extremely over weight just needed to drop 10 lbs , so I was talking about getting a diet pill to help, he suggested Relora. I was skeptical at first, but it seems to be working I no longer have the need to eat my boredom away and have lost 4 lbs after just 1 week. ( with exercise)

    It was recommended to me by doctor to take before I go to bed to ease hot flashes from waking me up. It does work for that. I used to wake up 4-5 times during the night because of hot flashes. Now MAYBE I might wake up once. My sleep has definitely improved.

    I have been using the Lifetime brand of Relora that I purchased at a weight loss clinic, located inside my local gym. I have been using it for several months, with no side effects…except for sleeping better at night..I just feel so much better and more relaxed. I won’t complain about that! I purchased it in hopes that I it would help me to lose weight. I haven’t lost any weight while taking it, but I do feel a lot better including much better mood and having more energy. I am a stress eater, so it is probably helping some with that. I would recommend this product if you are looking for a natural supplement to take for stress, one that will not make you drowsy. It doesn’t seem to work to decrease appetite, at least not for me. This is the best product that I have tried for stress. I liked it so much I bought a second bottle.

    [Reply]

    becca

    I was so excited to read your post! I work for Lifetime & I just purchased the Relora because my stress level with school & work are through the roof. I’ve gained a lot of weight & I believe a huge part of it is because of the stress, which keeps me from sleeping. I’m lucky if I’ve been getting 3 hours of sleep each night… most of the time I’m up every 15-20 minutes. By the time I get home from work, its usually 11:30pm, & then I’m up again at 3:45/4am to go back into work. I attend school full time in between my work hours. Today is my first day using the Relora, so I hope it helps me as much as it has helped you! thanks for your post!

    I was given Relora by my doctor when my husband left and filed for divorce. I was very stressed and though she offered me antidepressants, I wanted to go a more natural route. I did not realize at the time that Relora was a weight loss product. I took it because I was told it would help stabilize my mood. I noticed a substantial difference in my mood when I did not take Relora. I believe it did help me maintain my normal demeanor in a very stressful and traumatic time. Had I known it was a weight loss product, I might had asked for something else. I lost 25lbs due to stress in less than a month before starting the Relora and it took a year before I could bring myself to eat enough to put the weight back on. I guess if that is what you are looking for than it is successful. I recommend it to anyone wanting avoid antidepressants in a situational circumstance.

    I have a medical condition and a LOT of pain and the pain is exacerbated bystress and tension which causes muscle tightening and spasm. I have been taking Relora for a couple of weeks. I have Source Naturals, 250mg. I take one when I feel tension or stress beginning to affect me. It seems to help. It definitely has a calming effect. It can also help with tension spasm. I have read on message boards about people who have found it helpful in getting off benzodiazapines.

    Tilly, I suspect your weight loss had more to do with the “divorce” diet (been on that one myself) than the relora.

    [Reply]

    Holly

    I heard the main benefit of Relora is that it helps lower cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that can effect anxiety and stress levels but also contributes to weight problems. I don’t think that just because other people use Relora to lose weight that necessarily means that it is bad for you. Lots of herbs, supplements, and medications are used for multiple purposes because they effect more than one aspect of your health. It’s common for lots of people to have too much cortisol that negatively effects both physical and mental health. I don’t think reducing cortisol levels with Relora would cause any harm to you as long as you are taking the recommended dose.
