Formula Rationale:

Rx Balance™ Relora®- Plus is an exceptional formula that combines Relora®with GABA, 5-HTP, and supportive B vitamins for stress and cortisol control. Chronic stress and anxiety are associated with a higher risk of morbidity and mortality from cerebrovascular and cardiovascular diseases, such as hypertension, cardiac ischemia and arrhythmias, and predispose people to a range of other disorders.

Relora®is a remarkable, clinically proven herbal formula containing extracts of Magnolia and Amur corktree, two herbs that work synergistically to help control stress-related symptoms, including irritability, emotional swings, muscle tension, restlessness, poor concentration, and interrupted sleep, as well as stress-related cravings and overeating.

Relora®helps to support the production of normal levels of cortisol and DHEA hormones, promoting effective stress management. It works by binding to stress receptors in the nervous system to promote relaxation and feelings of well- being, while ignoring receptors that would cause sedation. In human trials, Relora®has been shown to be safe and effective. In one clinical study using 1,291 subjects with mild to moderate stress, 91% reported that Relora®helped them relax, 90% reported that it helped them have a restful sleep, and 96.4% reported absolutely no side effects.

GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is included in this formula for its role as a major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system. Excitation in the brain must be balanced with inhibition, and GABA exerts anticonvulsant, sedative, and anxiolytic (antianxiety) effects at a cellular level. The effect of orally administered GABA on relaxation and immunity during stress was investigated in a study with humans. The effect of GABA intake on brain waves using electroencephalograms (EEGs) was tested and indicated that GABA significantly increased alpha waves and decreased beta waves. These findings denote that GABA not only induces relaxation but also reduces anxiety.

5-HTP (5-hydroxytryptophan) is included in this formula for its calming effect. Naturally sourced from the seed of the Griffonia simplicifolia plant, 5-HTP is clinically proven to improve mood, promote relaxation, and balance sleep patterns. This neuronutrient is produced in the body after we eat food that contains the essential amino acid tryptophan. The body uses the 5-HTP to produce serotonin, an important neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that is essential for healthy nerve and brain function. In a study using 24 panic disorder patients and 24 healthy volunteers, 5-HTP was found to significantly reduce the reaction to a panic challenge in the panic disorder patients as opposed to placebo. No such effect was noticed in the healthy volunteers. The researchers concluded that 5-HTP acts to inhibit panic, which supports the modulatory role of serotonin in panic disorder.

Vitamins B2, B6, and B12 and folic acid are included in this formula because of their action as cofactors and in the developmental role of the neural system. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxal-5-phosphate) is an important coenzyme in the biosynthesis of GABA, dopamine, and serotonin. If vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is deficient, the metabolism of the other B vitamins, notably folate and B6, can be reduced. Various studies have conclusively linked decreased folate (folic acid) and elevated homocysteine to depressive disorders. Folate and vitamin B12 have fundamental roles in the function of the central nervous system at all ages and may prevent mood disorders and dementias. Associations between folate status and mood have been known for some time, with folate deficiency considered a treatable cause of depression.
