A double blind study of the Stress Relief Complex? No, I did not see that. Can you post a link?

There is a graph from a 7-day double-blind study, and it seemed to help about 1/3 of people.

Apparently this was a "preliminary study" conducted in 2002.

Was it published anywhere? Was anything else published specifically on this product?

Do you have the Stress Relief Complex Flyer, Item #74761?

I have been self medicating with most of the ingedients in the stress relief complex for years....from seperate sources....I take everything but the ashwagandha....I also take lots of essential fatty acids.....i have seen some pretty good anti-stress supplements out there....I am trying to remember the name of....oh yeah...."Calm and Calmer".....i think it has l-theanine, GABA and Rhodeola Rosea.....that is available at some health food stores...I really liked it....ran out of it a long time ago though.....

My parents are strictly anti-pharmaceutical....it's a blessing really....

Well, here is Calm and Calmer:

http://www.lifetimevitamins.com/calm.html

Like the Shaklee product, it as L-theanine. It also has Relora and Rhodiola rosae.

It doesn't say what the dose level is.

Swanson's Ultimate Stress Pills also contains L-theanine, Relora, and Rhodiola rosae

http://www.swansonvitamins.com/webapp/w ... 899&R=5778

It also contains Lactium, described here:

http://www.lactiumusa.com/

Several lactium studies:

http://www.lactiumusa.com/research-study-reports.asp

Here http://www.lactiumusa.com/faq.asp it says: "Lactium cannot replace any medical treatment prescribed to fight anxiety or depressive illness. Medical care is needed in any true case of pathology." That is what I am looking for: something to replace medical treatment to fight my Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). And, one of the symptoms of GAD HAS to be obsessing over the drugs used to fight the disorder.

However, the more I read about the Lactium, the better it sounds.

Swanson also has 167 mg capsules of Lactium (I wonder why they are so precise? 167??? mg?)

http://www.swansonvitamins.com/webapp/w ... opBox=null

I wonder how much Lactium a glass of milk contains?

According to Swanson, the Relora is mainly concerned with weight gain associated with stress

http://www.swansonvitamins.com/webapp/w ... opBox=null

The Rhodiola is about controlling stress hormones

http://www.swansonvitamins.com/webapp/w ... opBox=null

Well, now I am completely confused. I had better not forget my clorazepam tonight.

I've noticed that when I forget to take my clorazepam, my sense of anxiety goes way up now, and I feel REALLY grouchy. I can see where some of these mass murderer-suicides may be coming from.

How many? And, what sort of oaths do they take in conjunction with the product?

Oh good lord, are you serious?

I can certainly ask a couple to email you about the product. They are not Distributors or Members either, just customers.

Send me your email and I'll ask if they would mind emailing you. My email is [email protected]

:roll:

Well, maybe you could just have them e-mail you with their testimony, and then you could post their messages here.

Here's one from Tia. Mom of twin toddler boys. YIKES!

Stress Relief from Shaklee:
I wanted to try the Stress relief to see how it compared to the prescription that I was currently taking, and had been taking for over 2 years since my twin boys became mobile. After two weeks on the Stress relief tablets, I have stopped taking the prescription medication after discussing it with my doctor, and the results are amazing. No edginess, no grumpiness... and I'm loving the fact that it's an all natural way to stay calm.

Here's another one...just realized another twin's story. LOL!

Sure!
They have made a difference! I have been taking them about 2 weeks and I already notice a difference.
I keep my twin grandson's all day (3years old), work my businesses online and off, and work the weekend at Frank Brown Park here in Panama City Beach, needless to say, I stay stressed!! I will continue to take these, when this bottle gets close to running out, I will re-order more.

Thanks!! :)

                                                                      
God Bless You!
