CortiStress is one of many products on the market that claimed to be able to reduce weight through helping to control the “stress hormone” known as cortisol. It like several other products like it have been under fire by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for making false claims about their supplements. We will take a closer look at the product to determine what the claims are and why the supplement does not work as claimed. This also applies to CortiSlim.

List of Ingredients

The full ingredient list of CortiStress is not available, though some reviews cite two main ingredients as part of the formula: magnolia bark and theanine. There may be other ingredients in the formula but it does not appear that there are in any fat burners or appetite suppressants.

Product Features

Without knowing the full ingredient list, we cannot speculate on how well the product actually works. Magnolia bark and theanine are effective stress reducers, but do not have any effect on weight loss, and are not clinically proven to help with weight loss through fat burning or the suppression of appetite. The product also claims to be able to boost your resting metabolism, which it was not able to do. Magnolia bark and theanine can act as an effective sleep aid to ensure you are getting a better’s night sleep but will not offer anymore benefit than that.

There is absolutely no reason to try this product. Even if you could find it available, why would you want to? If you know it’s been under fire from the FTC for not working like it claims to, then there is no justification for wanting to try it. While we know stress has a negative impact on the body and one of those can be weight gain, there are other ways to relieve stress and promote weight loss. Try looking for a supplement that contains proven fat burners or appetite suppressants and take it as directed, along side a balanced diet and regular exercise program. This will help you lose weight better than a supplement like this one could.
