SAN FRANCISCO--(Business Wire)--
On the human side of the financial news, the Relora Stress & the
City Survey shows sex drives taking a plunge along with the economy
this year. The survey of 500 participants conducted in ten major
cities, shows that money concerns are stressing out 63.8% of the
respondents. Most of them (62%) say that this stress impacts their sex
lives and they are having less sex. They are too anxious, too worried
or said they don't have enough time. Almost half of the respondents
(46%) said that they are more stressed out than last year. Forty
percent said they were stressed out over their jobs.

   The most frequent ways of getting rid of stress are curling up to
watch TV (66.5%), listening to music (65.5%) and eating comfort foods
(66.6%). To compound the stress, weight gain is also likely to be an
issue due to these popular coping mechanisms. The survey has a 4.4%
margin of error and was conducted by Polaris Marketing, an independent
polling organization.

   Relora is a non-sedating dietary supplement that has been
clinically tested to safely and effectively reduce stress. In a
previous six-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study
conducted on healthy women between the ages of 20 and 50, Relora
significantly reduced short-term anxiety compared to the placebo
group. This study conducted by Miami Research Associates, a clinical
research organization in Miami, Florida, was published in Nutrition
Journal, an open access peer-reviewed, online journal. Nutrition
Journal can be referenced through BioMed Central and PubMed.
