What Is Hydroxycut?
How does it work?
Hydroxycut claims to burn fat by increasing metabolism and energy through the combination of various ingredients, primarily through the extract of the green robusta coffee bean.
Is Hydroxycut safe?
Pre-2004 and 2009 formulations of Hydroxycut were considered problematic and had to be recalled after certain ingredients were found to cause health issues.
Ephedra, which was found to cause heart attack and strokes by the USFDA, was removed after 2004. Other ingredients which may harm the liver, was also removed in the 2009 reformulation.
Hydroxycitric acid (HCL) is another ingredient that may cause harm, in this case, to the liver. It’s from the Garcinia cambogia fruit and sometimes marketed under SuperCitrimax. Studies for and against is still inconclusive, though the USFDA suggests to avoid it, just in case.
In 2015, Singapore’s HSA issued a warning about supplements with illegal and harmful ‘potent western medicinal ingredients’. These includes products like the older Hydroxycut Elite formula with Yohimbine and Raubasine.
A check on current Hydroxycut Elite formula products do not show these ingredients. Some of the older formulas might still be floating around, so make sure you check the ingredients before you buy any Hydroxycut products. (i.e. evitamins sg online store selling Elite formula with Yohimbine. At a riduculous $80 no less.)
Note that some other products in the Hydroxycut line may still have Yohimbine.
As always, make sure you follow the instructions printed on the bottle.
