Relacore is a an over-the-counter diet pill. The concept behind this pill is that excess stress causes tummy flab.


Relacore elevates your mood to reduce stress, thus allowing you to lose the body fat caused by stress. That fat is caused by Cortisol.

Cortisol is a hormone in your body that is linked to stress. But, it's also linked to body fat, especially around your waist.

Relacore reduces Cortisol levels in your body, resulting in a mild anti-anxiety effect.


Like most diet pills, this product make a lot of claims that probably aren't true. The FDA is often chasing people who market these pills around, trying to keep them from making such wild claims.

Cortisol likely does have a connection to body fat, but it's hard to say to what degree. It may only be a mild effect.

Relacore's main ingredient is Magnolia bark, which is believed to have a mild stress-reducing effect. But, it's unclear if this has any real connection to Cortisol or fat loss.

Relacore is marketed and packaged in a way to make it resemble a prescription drug. Many feel this is deceptive.

I haven't used Relacore but am deeply concerned about marketing as a feel-good remedy. Anybody remember "Farenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury?
posted 4-Feb-2006 11:28am

I have been on Relacore for 4 days and can tell a definite difference. I read somewhere that it is being packaged two different ways - with instructions on one to take 2 caplets 3 times a day and on the other to only take 1 three times a day. I started out with 2, but got a horrible migraine. I am prone to migraines, so I don't know if it was the Relacore or not. Anyway, I did cut the dosage in half. I can tell a huge difference in my mood and energy level. I have lost 3 pound in 4 days. I doubt this will work for everyone, but if your weight is from stress, it is worth a shot. I was quite sure my weight was stress/cortisol related, as there have been a lot of changes in my life lately. I gained 20 pounds in 6 months - all in my stomach. So, so far, I am pleased with this product.

I have been using Relacore for about 30 days and have managed to lose 28lbs and I have gone from a size 24 in pants to a 18-20. My energy level has really increased I now exercise, walk and play sports with my family. Before Relacore I was lazy, overweight and lacked energy to do anyhting but sleep. Now I am motivated and energetic and enjoy being able to do things I couldn't do before. I would definitely recommend to give Relacore a try.

Okay, I am seriously thinking about trying this product. But a few of comments are concerning me. I have some stress and my belly has shown up as a result. I am not over weight but would love to trim my waist line. I have started walking a mile in a half 5 days a week and plan to add some crunches later. I weigh 146 but want to get to 135. My BMI may say one thing but my physcial body says another. I need some sound advice on this before I try, plus I plan to contact my Doctor and ask him. Please help

I was on relacore for 4 months. I lost no weight at all. What did happen was. I got seere EDEMA in both legs. (Swelling due to water retention in the legs) this stumped both my doctors, the hospital and me. It was only after I ran out of it and could not go to the drug store for a week to get more that the swelling started going down.

I attribute the EDEMA to relacore. Is it for certain that it cause However. the fact that the swelling went down only after getting off relacore, leads me to believe it may not be such a safe product after all..

I was a 16/18 or 18 when I started. Now I am a 16 and I have a little extra room in that size. My appetite has decreased and I believe my mood has changed alot.

Husband was on Relacore. He went through the 1st bottle (220 cap) and his feet and lower legs swelled a lot (Edema). It swelled so much that he went to the doctor. They had no idea what caused it. He ran out of it and I finally bought some about 2 weeks later. (the swelling had lessened some in the 2 weeks, however we did not put 2 and 2 together.) He went back on it and the swelling got worse. So much so he could only wear adjustable sandles, as he could not get his fet in shoes, not even his slippers. The doctor put him on a water pill to reduce the edema. it helped a little. It was only about 2 weeks later that it dawned on me to have him stop the Relacore. He stopped the swelling went down a bit.

He will NOT GO BACK ON IT. Only problem now is, what ever damage it did, his legs will not go down to a normal size. They are still quite swollen 4 months later! We had to go out to a specialty shoe store to try to buy extra extra wide shoes for him.

So I do not know what other internal damage has been done, however I am reporting it to the FDA medwatch program as diet aids are watched by them.

Relacore makes your hair all out!!! you get dizzy, blured vision, and headaches, I even was vomiting. Throw it away or don't buy it.
posted 27-Feb-2008 12:37pm

I was trying relacore with zantrex 3. definately dont recommend it. the relacore made me feel calmer, im normally extremely stressed out. i was really sick the first 3 days. i wasnt sure if it was the zantrex or the relacore. so i stopped taking the zantrex. and i feel so much better.

relacore is great for reducing my stress levels, it helps me lose weight because it supresses my appetite. but i think if you just took a vitamin/pill that only supresses your appetite, you'd get the exact same results. i mean obviously, people who are eating snacks all day long, or more servings than they should for meals, they will gain weight.

i wouldnt bother with it though. maybe for a week to help you reduce the need to eat, get use to that feeling of not eating so much, let your stomach shrink a little. then stop taking it and see how well you do managing your intake of foods.

the only reason i actually tried this was because of it reducing stress and helping with weight loss, plus it was a lot cheaper at walmart than anywhere online. 19.95 vs. 49.99, also the bottles at walmart have 120 capsules. the ones online im pretty sure have 60/80. i only took 2 for breakfast and 2 at lunch.

a side effect for me was feeling anxious, shaky, and i would space out randomly for 5 minutes at a time. i think it helps if your willing to eat healthier, smaller portions and exercise. obviously.

I too have taken relacore. Only until I read this site, did I realize that this product is causing the swelling in my legs. I have never had this problem. I bought this bottle of relacore about 3 weeks ago, I have actually gained weight and my legs have swollen up. After reading the two anonymous emails about swelling in their legs-or spouse's legs, the light clicked on. I took my bottle of relacore to the trash and dumped it. I need to lose weight, probably about 50 to 60 pounds but this is definitely not the way to do it. Thank you to the two previous anonymous writers who discussed the Edema. You probably saved my life. You are right, one never knows what these products do to your body in the long run.

Hello everyone, I started "combo pilling" Zantrex and Relacore today... I am male, 37, 6'5" and weigh more than 250lbs. I tend to stress eat, which has caused me to become fat and lazy. I hope that the Zantrex will give me the zip I need to get up off my behind and I hope that the Relacore will keep me me from binge eating when I get stressed. I know that I only started "combo pilling" today but I have to tell you that I feel great and have gotten a lot of things done today. This morning I had a very lite breakfast and a very lite lunch this afternoon. It is dinner time and I have no desire to eat. Normally I eat a huge breakfast, a large lunch, I snack before dinner, I eat dinner and then I snack again before bed. Time will tell but so far so good...

I tried Relacore about a year ago, and I went from a size 16-18 in pants to a size 8-10 in a matter of 3 months. I started exercising about a month into the 3 months, and feel exercise helped me have such fast results. But like any other diet pill on the market it does different strokes for different folks. I am now in a size 14 and because I stopped working out and got busy with school and kids, picked up my bad habbits again. So back to Relacore I go, I was to blame for getting too relaxed again. Exercise and plenty of water were the kep for me! But Relacore gives me the head start I need. Good Luck!

Hi. I tried Relacore (or maybe it was Relora...basically the same thing) a few years ago. I often used a "carb receptor" in addition when I ate too many carbs. I lost two sizes and about 20 pounds. Very little effort on my part, no physical concerns from the capsules, and I was feeling good. I had plenty of belly fat, as well as stress. I quit taking it and the pounds slowly came back. I'm going to try it again!

I've been taking Relacore for anxiety for maybe two weeks and I feel that it does make a little difference in that area. As far as losing weight, I haven't noticed a difference yet so I decided to add Zantrex 3 to it. The first day, I took 1 Zantrex at around 6pm. I was up until 4:30am cleaning!! It was nice for my house but not for my sleep. So day 2, I got up at 11 and took 2 Relacore and 1 Zantrex. About 10 minutes later, my face and neck turned bright red! I even turned a little red and was itchy around my knees and on my bum. It's only been 20 minutes and I can feel it getting better. I'll keep ya updated....

I have taken Relacore for a month and have lost my small spare tire and 13 pounds but I also starting reading labels and fat content of every thing I consumed at the same time I started taking Relacore. I excercise alot as well. I think it more psychological for me that this pill may have worked. I ride a bike 50 to 150 miles per week and in the last couple of weeks started getting nasty rashes on my upper thighs and other areas and the rashes stopped me from riding for a while. My skin seems to be drying out as well. I never had that problem before and I realized now it all started since taking Relacore. I done with it for now to see what happens.

posted 17-Dec-2009 3:10am

I heard about Relacore and Zantrex 3 from a magazine and thought it was crazy at first to combo pill, but I had always been over weight so I figured I'd try it. I was at a weight of 298lbs and was 5'7, I was very unhappy with myself. I tried diet and exercise, but everything seemed to just get worse. Finally I got serious and I started walking, dancing and eating right while taking one of each of the pills twice a day, morning and afternoon, and surprisingly the weight started to come off. In about a few months I had went down to 150lbs. I know that from my experience it worked, but I always think the main thing is diet and exercise!! =) Well good luck to those who may try it =)

About 15 min later I ate a normal lunch. The only change I am going to make diet wise is drinking diet soda in lieu of sugared soda. That in and of itself may make the biggest change! Ill update how I feel and what the results are if anyone would like to know :) good luck to all of you out there that want to help yourselves get healthier ❤

Hi! I posted as anonymous last post but figured its be hard to follow :) I've been taking Relacore and Zantrex 3 for 4 days now. I started with 1 Relacore and 2 Zantrex. It made me just a little jittery as I took them on an empty stomach. As soon as I ate lunch I felt better. It did make me have extra bowel movements 2 times that day and everyday since. About twice a day. I have since started taking 1 of each with a 1/2 glass of milk and that seems to cut down on the jitters. I am very used to caffine though so it may be different for others who may not be...I am not weighing myself as I prefer to judge by how well my normal clothes fit...I haven't noticed any change in that and didn't expect to this soon anyway but I have a lot more energy! My daughter had to move yesterday and we worked for about 12 hours straight moving and cleaning (it was a disaster of a cleaning task! Really really messy and dirty) she's a teenager...anyway, I only had the 2 pulls in the morning and didn't slow down one bit all day! I'm not sure we could've gotten it done without the Zantrex! I was starving at lunch but I expected that due to the exertion. But was hardly hungry that night when we finally stopped to eat around 10pm! I didn't even finish dinner. I slept like a baby and woke up today feeling fine. Took 1 pill of each again this morning and within 15-20 min had to poop! Sorry for the personal info but I think it's wise to know that you will need a bathroom while taking this! A road trip or being in mixed company could prove to be embarrassing! Still feel good and peppy. Will post again in a few days :)

I want to start combo pilling with zentrix and relacore how many pills a day can I take?
posted 17-Apr-2013 5:07pm

Hello again! I have now been on the combo for almost a week and have been taking 1 of each Relacore and Zantrex 3 blue bottle 2 times a I said I started on 2 Zantrex and 1 Relacore but that made me kinda problems now as long as I take it with a glass of milk...I haven't noticed a marked weight loss yet but didn't really expect to this soon...I do have a lot more energy though and that has been great! One thing that is new now is that if I eat a meal with a lot of fat or oil in it I am having to have a bowel movement fairly quick after...sorry for the detail but yesterday I ate a Philly cheesesteak and I had to run to the I had a salad with homemade Cesar dressing and I think it had too much oil in I because I actually had to dash to the potty and what came out was mostly oil...not pleasant at all :( I wasn't aware of this effect....anyway, that's all well and good as long as I'm prepared and may e try to avoid oils and fats in too much quantity? Gonna keep at it and will post again soon!

Constuctogirl, have you lost any weight on the combo Relacore & Zantrex? Are you watching what you eat or exercising/walking a bit?
posted 2-Jun-2013 12:22pm

For those combo pilling with Relacore and Zantrex3 and having negative reactions - try taking your 3 Relacore in the morning with a sensible breakfast. Then take 1 Zantrex 15 minutes before you eat lunch and a second Zantrex 15 minutes before you eat dinner. You shouldn't experience any headaches or gitters. Also, drink plenty of water throughout the day. Hope this helps.

Am I crazy? My first day of taking relacore in the morning, I became so tired and slept half the day. I need the sleep at night not during the day. Has anyone else experienced this?
posted 1-Feb-2015 1:31pm

YES! Lol I took it and fell out! The three dosages at once, I just can't take. It makes me feel much better (stress wise), but I have to reduce my dosage to 1 pill in the morning and one-two before bed if I want a normal work week. ;)

Healthy 63 year old who is over 100 pounds overweight. I just bought the Relacore Extra and the Zantrex 3 red box today - at Walmart - cheaper than anything I saw online. I will start taking 1 pill of each tomorrow morning with a glass of milk, and one at lunch with a glass of milk. Will let you know what happens. Would love to hear some more feedback from folks who have been on this regimen for a while...what they ate, how much exercise, problems. Are the people on here taking the Relacore pm during the day having the daytime sleep problems? I do not plan on taking either of these after 2 pm every day.

I started taking relacore about 5 days agi. Appetite is curbed during the day but by evening I am starving lol. I haven't HAD to have a nap the last couple of days. No swelling anywhere. I'm not sure if I have lost pounds but my clothing fit better instead of being tight.

I did buy it for belly fat, but I didn't lose any weight. Now I just buy it because I like how it mellows me out :)
