Health Canada Approves Sales of Relora® in Canada

Salinas, California – April 1, 2013 – Health Canada has issued NPN 505349 for Relora, enabling the all-natural dietary supplement to be sold throughout Canada. Health Canada is the country’s Federal department responsible for “helping Canadians maintain and improve their health” and rewarding these product licenses, required by all natural health products sold in Canada.  Health Canada’s review process is highly selective to ensure the quality of products sold throughout the country.

Relora, sold in the US since 2000 (US Patent No. 6,582,735), alleviates stress, curbs stress-related eating and promotes weight management by quieting the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis without causing drowsiness. Relora’s ingredients, a blend of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense bark extracts are botanicals that have been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for thousands of years. In the West, they have been recognized for treating stress. When compared to prescription drugs, Honokiol and Berberine appear effective at calming stress and anxiety without sedative side effects. Relora is Kosher certified by KOF-K (Certification No. 2V04W-QQWYC).
