Relacore: Stress Buster or Fat Buster?

By Peter Bracato

There has been a great amount of research confirming the link between anxiety and surplus belly fat. Elevated levels of the stress hormone cortisol may contribute to this increased abdominal layer. As a result of these research conclusions many breakthrough products have appeared with claims to elevate your mood and slim your figure. Who can blame the estimated 47 million Americans who would try anything in an effort to lose those excess pounds and decrease body fat?

What is Relacore?

Relacore is marketed as a powerful, non-sedating stress reliever that elevates mood and increases energy. It is exclusively intended to alleviate "Metabolic Syndrome" and lessen the accumulation of belly fat caused by surplus cortisol.

Relacore and Cortisol....

Cortisol, the body's main stress hormone, is required for many essential body functions including blood pressure maintenance, balanced immunity, and glucose metabolism. However, excessive levels of cortisol can impact mental alertness, repress thyroid function, and increase insulin imbalances leading to fat deposits, reduced bone density and wasting muscles.

It may be true that taking three Relacore capsules daily will decrease overall stress levels. However, decreasing cortisol levels does not automatically reduce belly fat. Stress is just one of the likely causes of bulge battle. Even Relacore ads claim that, "in conjunction with a sensible diet and exercise program," Relacore might be the perfect answer to battling belly fat. To date, though, the best line of defense against "Metabolic Syndrome" is weight loss and physical activity.

Relacore's Formulation

Relacore is a combination of Ascorbic Acid, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Nicotinamide, Pyridoxine, Cobalamin, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Magnesium and Pyridoxine. It also includes a proprietary blend of ingredients called Relacortin, which consists of: Magnolia (bark) SE, Passion Flower (herb) SE, Scutellaria (root) SE, Niacinamide, DHEA, Panax Ginseng (root), Pinella (tuber), Poria (fungus), Jujuba (fruit), Perilla (leaf), Phosphotidylserine.

Within the proprietary blend the ingredients Magnolia bark and Passion Flower extract relate to cortisol control. Magnolia bark contains honokiol which "de-stresses" or relaxes without sedating. Although stress may contribute to weight gain, it is secondary to sedentary lifestyles and excessive calorie consumption.

Based on the ingredients in the Relacore formulation it can be said that the product may:

Reduce Stress Reduce Mild Anxiety Improve Mood Fight Mid-Day Fatigue Increases Energy Decrease Stress-Induced Bingeing Whether the proprietary blend Relacortin contains the necessary amount of needed extracts to achieve the claims made by Relacore cannot be confirmed, as the ratio of ingredients are not provided in the product's advertising or on its label. Relacore may contribute to a decrease in abdominal fat, but the best recipe for a healthy physique is proper diet and exercise.
