Drugstore.com has (60) 250 mg caps of Relora for $15.99. Anyone know if that's a good price or not?

It's actually 16.99 and that is where I bought mine. It's the Herbal Plus one. Yes that is a good price, for what it does, YES!

That's a good price Vanity3, but I'd be leary of the ingredients......

Hi! I've been checking all the web sites for the best prices and came upon some problem. First prices don't match and there are different strengths. Also there are two different names one is the relor and the other is relacore. So maybe there is a difference. If not why would the same site carry both? Any ideas? I really want to get the right one so any advise would be greatly appreciated. What other supplements is everybody taking? How about the oil or oregeno?

Thanks for all your help!
Kathy

Good point. If this a product I try, I'll go for the Relacore at $29.99, I saw on the shelves at Osco Drugs on sunday.

Mine doesn't have these ingredients. So maybe they are different.

I've been doing some searches too, and all of the Relora products seem to have different ingredients. Relacore is probably stronger than Relora?

Ok no wait, mine does have these ingredients. Gees they put that in real tiny letters.

Well, I've lost 3 inches the first 4 days taking it, so I know it works.

I bought the Now brand Relora from GNC (17.99 minus my gold discount). I was skeptical at first, but I figured, what do I have to lose.

Started it on Monday night...this morning, even though I didn't measure, I can actually see that it is smaller! No major weight loss in that day and a half (1/2 pound), so I am impressed - yet confused. The way that I can tell that it is smaller is the fact that after my 2 children, my skin has been stretched to the hilt. This morning, instead of seeing a full tummy, I see the skin is actually hanging. I should have measured, but I am very happy with my results. Who would have known that this stuff really works!

I tried the ooo and didn't get the impressive results as everyone else (I gained). I am still taking it, but the relora is my supplement of the week (or month!). Thanks for suggesting it. I will keep you posted on any additional changes if any, but even this much was worth it!

WOO HOO I'm so happy for you katmutti. I haven't lost any more inches since the initial 3 but those ugly stretch marks on the belly after popping 2 kids, are finally starting to shrink.

I'm a happy camper. I took a before picture and hope to take an after one to post once I'm done with this first bottle.

Have a great day.

Thanks AEWife. I had originally lost quite a bit more weight (40 more lbs), but with some personal issues last year, lost too much too fast (over 20 in a month). I ended up gaining that back plus some. Had to get back on track before all of my hard work was gone.

From the loss last summer, I saw that my skin on my tummy just hung there (and my thighs and arms!). I am beginning to see that "effect" once again. I already know that when I get to goal, I won't be happy until I get a tummy tuck. If this stuff continues to do what it is doing, that may be sooner than I thought. I do have a contingency that I want to retain my weight loss for a year beforehand. Wouldn't it be great for it to pull that skin in too?!?!?! I just wish they would come out with a product that returns your elasticity to your skin. Oh...to dream!
