Relacore Side Effects, Health Impact

Interested in taking Relacore with cortisol for fighting belly fat but you would like more information before purchasing? If so, we hope the following information is of help for your good health. 

We would like to point out a potentially life threatening disease associated with high levels of cortisol in the body. Higher than normal levels of cortisol may indicate a serious hormonal disease called Cushing's Syndrome (Cushing's Disease, Hypercortisolism). Cushing's Syndrome affects about ten to fifteen in one million individuals annually.

If you are currently experiencing the following symptoms associated with Cushing's Syndrome please see your doctor asap.

  • unexplained weight gain
  • round appearance in face
  • upper body obesity (fat around the middle)
  • fat around the neck
  • severe fatigue, including weakness
  • high blood pressure
  • high blood sugar
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • thinning of the hair OR excessive hair growth in unusual places such as on the face, thighs & abdomen (found generally in women)
  • decreased sex drive
  • menstrual disturbances
  • thinning arms & legs

As Relacore advertising suggests, you should get your healthcare professional's approval before use. If your doctor suspects that you have a high level of cortisol contributing to weight gain, tests may be performed to confirm the diagnosis. As a note, measures taken in an effort to reduce cortisol levels in individuals who currently do not have an unhealthy cortisol level may present health risks.

If you are at childbearing age, it is extremely important that you get with your doctor before taking Relacore as pregnant and nursing moms should not take this product.

What is Relacore Intended To Do?

Relacore depicts a link between stress and belly fat. 

The makers of Relacore, the Carter-Reed Company, claim that Relacore with cortisol fights and shrinks belly fat, reduces stress, fights mid-day fatigue, reduces mild anxiety, and reduces certain types of depression while increasing energy.

What is Cortisol?

In a nut shell, cortisol is just one of the hormones secreted by the adrenal glands many times, during stressful situations. In some individuals, too much or too little cortisol may be present. 

General Consensus: A high level of cortisol may increase appetite in some individuals.  

Side Effects for Relacore 

Relacore claims no known 'negative' side effects from use of Relacore. However, side effects reported on the web from individuals who have used Relacore include:

 Weight Gain
 Heart Palpitations

 Blurred Vision

 Blood Pressure Fluctuation




 Headaches - minor to severe



 Disruption in the menses including severe cramping, irregular cycles, lengthy periods.

As a note, weight gain, blood pressure issues, and menstrual issues are three key symptoms of Cushing's Disease. Many of the other symptoms indicate adrenal issues, as well as heart issues.

Therefore, if these individual claims are correct, one should be extremely cautious before personally attempting to adjust cortisol levels. This doesn't mean that the individuals experiencing the above symptoms have - or will develop Cushing's Disease. The point is that when cortisol levels are adjusted without the oversight of a professional physician, significant health risks may occur. Only a qualified professional can verify if an individual has too much cortisol.

Most common symptoms reported by the readers at Diet Bites who took Relacore include:

- severe muscle weakness in my legs causing me to not be able to stand or walk at times.

- higher than normal blood pressure
