Cortisol Blockers- After the Hype and Controversy, are there any Quality Products Still Standing?

Over the last 2 years, the link between weight gain and the stress hormone Cortisol has taken center stage. The concept was introduced, capitalized upon, and basically challenged in the legal system all within the last 2 years. The FTC filed a lawsuit against a maker of a Cortisol product claiming false advertising and unsubstantiated claims, yet you still see and hear of products claiming to control Cortisol. The public still seems to hold onto hope regarding the possibility of the science and potential effectiveness of these products.

Two years later, is there a product, or products, that have actually helped people reach their weight goals? It seems to be a subjective question. Some products work for certain people and others don't. There is one thing that will remain true through all of this controversy regarding Cortisol, if you don't include proper diet and exercise, the majority of supplements will fail you. The makers of CortiSlim? were very effective at bringing the topic of Cortisol to the people.

How effective their product is remains debatable. CortiSlim? may have helped many people, but when weighed with the outrageous claims they made, it is clear to see that there has been significant public backlash. If you take the time to review the ingredients in comparable products, you will see that the formula may seem outdated. Relacore? has been around even longer than CortiSlim? and now can be seen on TV making the same claims about "belly fat" and the connection with Cortisol. CortiDrene? is another product offering a Stress-related weight-control formula. Unlike the previous 2 products, CortiDrene? has not done any national advertising and has seemed to ride the wave of publicity and focused solely on actual experiences from consumers. CortiDrene? has changed their formula in an effort to provide more quality ingredients and fight the effects of stress from several angles.

As the author of this opinionated editorial, I can speak to you from my experience fighting the battle of the bulge and honestly tell you over the last 2 years, I have tried all 3 products. I can also offer this; I believe that you have to commit to a lifestyle change in order for any supplement to provide quality support. For my money and expectations, I was left expecting more from Cortislim? and Relacore?. I enjoyed the feeling I had with CortiDrene? and actually felt more comfortable while using it. I agree with CortiSlim? when they say it is a "Lifestyle". I just wished they had said that in the first place.
