Weight Loss Home > CortiSlim Diet Pills

CortiSlim® is a line of nonprescription supplements designed to help people lose weight. Initially, these pills were advertised to cause significant weight loss by affecting cortisol (a "stress hormone"). However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) have disputed these claims, as no adequate research has been done to support them.
 
Many of the ingredients in CortiSlim products are simply stimulants, which may work to control the appetite and boost metabolism. However, they may also cause dangerous side effects, such as high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, and anxiety.
