We study the effects of redistributing superthermal electrons on bremsstrahlung radiation from hot relativistic plasma. We consider thermal and nonthermal distribution of electrons with an energy cutoff in the phase space and explore the impact of the energy cutoff on bremsstrahlung losses. We discover that the redistribution of the superthermal electrons into lower energies reduces radiative losses, which is in contrast to nonrelativistic plasma. Finally, we discuss the possible relevance of our results for open magnetic field line configurations and prospects of the aneutronic fusion based on proton-boron-11 (p-B11) fuel.
