Stress management is a daily ritual for most people.  If not kept under control, stress can cause damage in a variety of ways and make us feel anxious and tired.

A  combination of Magnolia and Phellodendron extracts have been shown to be effective on the levels of stress hormones, particularly cortisol.  Researchers tested the effects of this combination, commonly referred to as Relora, on stress adults and test various markers for stress.

Fifty six adults who were identified as stress were given Relora or placebo for four weeks.  Saliva samples were collected to measure cortisol levels.  

The group receiving Relora had significantly lower levels of cortisol, depression, anger, fatigue and confusion.
