What Is Hydroxycut HD?

Hydroxycut HD is a weight loss pill created by a US-based sports supplement company named MuscleTech (trading as Hydroxycut).

One bottle of Hydroxycut HD costs $49.99, contains 60 liquid-capsules and will last users for approximately one month based on the directions of 2 capsules per day.

The easiest and safest place to purchase this product would be via the official Hydroxycut HD website. You can also find it in stock on Amazon, Walmart, GNC and select other online supplement retailers.

Similar to the rest of the Hydroxycut product range, Hydroxycut HD is designed for those who are looking for help losing body fat. The product itself is a complex of natural stimulants and herbal extracts. MuscleTech describe Hydroxycut HD as a “high-definition weight loss pill” that can help you “achieve your goals like never before”.

Consumers of Hydroxycut HD are promised effects such as significantly improved energy levels, the enhanced ability to focus and concentrate and faster metabolic rates.

Does Hydroxycut HD Work?

After conducting some research into this product, we believe that Hydroxycut HD could potentially prove to be helpful for supporting weight loss, as long as it is used correctly.

As with most weight loss pills, the average consumer usually assumes these types of pills are capable of “burning fat”, which unfortunately just isn’t true (and believe us when we say that we wish it was). If you were planning on using the Hydroxycut HD pills without making any changes to your diet or exercise regime, then you’ll very likely see no impact on your overall weight, no matter how long you take them for.

Hydroxycut HD should be looked at as a weight loss aid, rather than a “fat burner pill”, by that we mean the product should not be used to counteract a bad diet and inactive lifestyle.

The two main benefits to using Hydroxycut HD will undoubtably be the energy-boost it provides, as well as the spike to your metabolic rates it may produce (both effects stem from the stimulant content of the formula). With more energy levels you’ll be able to work harder in the gym for longer, and with a faster running metabolism you may be able to burn calories at a quicker rate than normal.

In order to see genuine fat loss from Hydroxycut HD, you’re going to need to put yourself onto a calorie-restricted diet plan – without this, you aren’t going to lose any weight at all; if you’re able to do that, we don’t see why Hydroxycut HD wouldn’t be a useful product for helping you towards achieving your weight loss targets.

The Pros & Cons Of Hydroxycut HD

Below is a list of what we believe to be the main positive and negative aspects to Hydroxycut HD:

The Pros

  • May help boost user metabolic rates.
  • Can help improve user energy levels.
  • May improve user cognition (focus and concentration).

The Cons

  • Product doesn’t contain any ingredients that directly and independently “burn fat”.
  • Unlikely to reduce user appetite levels.
  • Negative side effects are possible.
  • Potentially manipulated Amazon reviews according to Fakespot.

What Are The Hydroxycut HD Ingredients?

We have found the following supplement facts via the official Hydroxycut website:

Three Liquid-Capsules Contains: Proprietary Blend 403mg (Robusta Coffee Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous 200mg, Choline Bitartrate, L-Theanine, Ashwagandha Extract).

Is Hydroxycut HD Suitable For Everyone?

This product is not suitable for vegetarians or vegans. It shouldn’t be used by those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, or by anyone under the age of 18.

Is Hydroxycut HD Safe?

Based on the ingredients used inside this product, we believe that it is very safe provided users stick to the directions and do not exceed the recommended daily serving amounts.

Consumers should be aware that this product is reasonably high in caffeine (200mg per serving).

What Are The Hydroxycut HD Side Effects?

We’ve compiled the following potential side effects based on the ingredients inside this formula:

  • Nervousness
  • Restlessness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Upset stomach
  • Increased heart rate [1][2]

Note: these side effects are possible but may not be the typical user experience.

Are There Any Hydroxycut HD Reviews From Customers?

We have found the following Hydroxycut HD review testimonials via customers online:

I take these to curb my appetite from time to time and I don’t take a lot of it but it never made me nervous or I never notice any bad side effect

I wouldn’t recommend this at all. It’s a total waste of money. If you want to lose weight, change your lifestyle, not just your diet, or weight will come back, but you don’t need this to accomplish that. If you don’t want to change your lifestyle, accept how you look and feel, because that’s the best way to stay the same, and you don’t need this to accomplish that.

Our Final Verdict On Hydroxycut HD

To conclude our Hydroxycut HD review, it’s a bit of a mixed bag – there are things that we like about it and things that we aren’t too blown away by.

Firstly, it’s great to see that this product contains a lot of natural stimulants and extracts that’ll help support user energy levels. It may also help boost the speed of your metabolism, allowing for a faster rate of calorie-burning (depending on your tolerance to caffeine). We believe that if your sticking to a calorie-reduced diet and regularly exercising, Hydroxycut HD can certainly be a useful tool for achieving your goal body fat percentage.

Of course there are downsides to Hydroxycut HD too. The formula itself isn’t really that remarkable; it’s pretty basic and doesn’t appear to be pushing the boat out – at least in our opinion. Granted it contains a lot of caffeine and Hydroxycut’s beloved Robusta Coffee Extract (found in almost every Hydroxycut product made), but its disappointing to see that the formula only features a grand total of 5 different ingredients.

If you’re looking for the most advanced fat burner for your money, we don’t think this is it, especially when it has no fully dedicated appetite suppressing ingredients inside it.

The liquid-capsule technology is a cool little feature that’ll help the product be absorbed faster, but it does seem like a bit of a gimmick in our eyes, especially when the absorption time won’t really play a major role in how effective Hydroxycut HD is.
