Everyday work and life stress, and the effects of regular exercise training and frequent workouts – along with exposure to emotional stress, environmental toxins, lack of sleep and more – can add up to a significant stress load on the body that you just can’t naturally fight. In order to recover, and to continue making gains in fitness and performance, it’s important to balance stressors with recovery strategies, and this is where Thorne Relora Plus (Stress-fighting complex with B-vitamins plus Relora) fits in.
Relora combines the patent protected formula of Relora® with additional nutrients to support proper stress modulation and eliminate the nasty side effects of excessive stress – such as cortisol and inflammation. Specifically, Relora is a proprietary blend of plant extracts from Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense, which is mixed with a potent dose of B-Vitamins to create a formula that:
- Helps reduce stress-related eating habits and food cravings
- Helps balance cortisol and DHEA levels
- Supports weight management and fat loss
- Promotes a positive mood and better sleep
Relora has been proven to help modulate stress hormones and to help balance cortisol and testosterone, your body’s primary catabolic and anabolic hormones. This can help dig you out of an overtraining hole, or assist with poor sleep or poor libido due to workout and lifestyle stress.
Because Relora helps modulate stress hormones, it has a number of other benefits too. For example, Relora has been shown to help quiet the part of the brain that responds to stress, which can reduce stress-related food cravings. It can also optimize recovery by helping to create a more testosterone-enhanced anabolic environment in both males and females for extra lean muscle mass development.
If you want to control cortisol, balance hormones, and reduce stress, Relora is a perfect addition to your protocol. It is already contained in the Multivitamin Elite, but if you need “extra” on an especially difficult day, you can add this in.
