I'm currently on a very strict diet (low-calorie, low-carb, high protien) and my meals and snacks are scheduled, so I cannot snack as I'd like to. I wanted a non-stimulating appetite suppressent and found this on I-Herb and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did! This product really does work. I tend to want to eat in the afternoon and even more so in the evening after dinner. I don't let myself get overly hungry in the afternoon by having a small lunch then making sure I'm drinking lots of water and tea. About 2:00-3:00 I start getting that slight hunger feeling, I take one Relora (and Calcium-Magnesuim & multi-vitamin) and within about 20 to 30 minutes, the hunger goes away, and I can make it until dinner. And I don't feel jittery! It is amazing! The effects seem to last a couple of hours. I take it again about an hour or two after dinner, which is the time of the evening that is the worst for me as far as wanting to eat sweets. The key with this product is to take it in-between meals, and not at the point that you're starving, but just starting to be hungry but you still need to either wait a couple of hours until your next meal, or in the evening after dinner when you need that extra help to not start grazing and eating desserts. I will definitely re-order this product!

...and I'm definitely calmer, less on-edge and irritable, while life circumstances have remained constant, so I'll continue to use.

I haven't been taking it regularly, but I can tell that it does tighten up the abdomen. It also seems to be a slight calming mood enhancer/muscle relaxer, but does not make me sleepy at all, just relaxed. I am going to stay with it for awhile, but just as a relaxing supplement it is worth it.

I suffered from severe anxiety and panic attacks. I read on the web that this herb Relora was useful at reducing anxiety. Since I was reluctant to use pharmacuticals I decided to try this product and I'm glad I did. I've noticed a significant reduction with my anxiety. Although it hasn't gone away 100% I've noticed the frequency and severity has decreased immensely and I feel much calmer in general. Plus, I haven't experienced any side effects or system upset. I believe this is a very good product and a good alternative for those not wanting to use anti-anixety meds.
Good anti-cortisol & anti-catabolic

Combined with phosphatidylserine and ashwagandha, relora makes a good anti-cortisol & anti-catabolic. Keeps me from getting stressed out and losing muscle. I take 300 mg relora, 250 mg ashwagandha, and 200 mg phosphatidylserine twice a day (with breakfast and dinner).
Sleep aid that really WORKS for some people
Posted by Reviewer2961002 on Sep 22, 2010
Based on some personal research, I bought this for uses other than anxiety/stress/diet, and it didn't fit the bill. But I offered it to a friend as a last-ditch try for something that might help him sleep through the night. Getting to sleep wasn't his problem (he uses a sleep medicine), but rather length and quality of sleep were the problem, especially since he has been going through a particularly anxious period. I frankly didn't expect the Relora to help him, since I had previously suggested trials of 5HTP, theanine, and magnesium glycinate, and none had helped. Well, surprise! With one Relora at bedtime (along with the med and maybe-unnecessary 5HTP), he says he now sleeps through the night. Waking way too early and then being unable to get back to sleep are no longer a problem. Furthermore, he says his constant bad dreams are now gone as well! Just goes to show that everyone's different, and as a sleep-aid Relora is working wonders for my friend. Worth a try if you're having similar problems.
