If your belly fat just won’t budge no matter what you do, or you start to pack on the pounds when times are tough, you may want to consider trying the herbal supplement Relora. “When you’re under stress, your body releases the hormone cortisol, which makes your body store fat around your midsection,” explains Dr. Oz. “If you tend to gain weight when you’re stressed out, this supplement can help you tackle stubborn belly fat. Made from the extracts of two plants used for thousands of years by Chinese herbalists to promote relaxation, clinical studies have shown that Relora can help mitigate feelings of anxiety. Decreased levels of cortisol can lead to the prevention of weight gain, the loss of excess weight, and the reduction of stress eating,” says Dr. Oz, who recommends taking 250mg of Relora three times a day, or one dose with every meal. “Studies have demonstrated this to be the most effective use of this supplement so you receive the maximum benefit,” he explains.
