How Does CortiSlim Work?Initially, these products claimed to cause significant weight loss (especially loss of belly fat) by reducing the level of cortisol (a "stress hormone"). However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) called these claims "false and unsubstantiated," and the manufacturer can no longer make such claims.
Is It Effective?There is a lack of scientific evidence supporting a conclusion that CortiSlim is effective for weight loss. No adequate research studies have been performed and published using these products for weight loss.
Dosing InformationThe dose the manufacturer recommends depends on the particular product (see CortiSlim Dosage for more information).
Side Effects of CortiSlimBecause CortiSlim products have not been adequately studied, very little is known about the side effects. Based on the stimulant content of most of these products, it is reasonable to assume that the following stimulant side effects are possible:
- High blood pressure (hypertension)
- A rapid heart rate (tachycardia).
