Relora? Stress relief and weight loss?

I came across some new supplement called Relora. Marketed for stress relief, but may also effect weight loss, “how your body stores and metabolizes fat” (according to the info provided).
Each Capsule contains 250mg Relora (which
contains a proprietary blend of patent-pending extracts of Magnolia officinalis and Phellodendron amurense. Standardized to 1.5% honoliol (3.75mg) and 0.1% bernerine (0.25mg).
Yes, Magnolia and Phellodendron!
Anyone have any opinions on this?

I found a little more (from the manufacturer’s website):

37% Cortisol Reduction (P = 0.01)
227% DHEA Increase (P = 0.003)

Maybe a good post-cycle supp?

yes, I am not impressed as the research appears to be weak.
