BY Michael Johnsen

NEW YORK Carter Reed on Friday released studies that suggests its dietary supplement diet aid Relacore may be useful in reducing acne flare-ups.

“One of the reasons Relacore has been so successful is because people buy it along with other diet pills or to use in conjunction with any sensible diet and exercise plan,” stated Gina Daines, Carter-Reed’s director of marketing. “Now when it comes to acne, we’re seeing the same phenomenon—those who buy popular anti-acne treatments, like Proactive, are picking up a bottle of Relacore to expand and complete their anti-acne regimen, using Relacore to help prevent the stress-related increase, duration, frequency and severity of acne flare-ups.”
