Hot Rox Extreme

Hot Rox Extreme diet pills

Hot Rox Extreme is produced by a company called Biotest, which has been manufacturing supplements in the United Kingdom for weight loss, sleep, bodybuilding, and other purposes for more than a decade. In the United States, these pills are distributed by a company called T-Nation LLC.

A Diet Pill with Big Promises

The promises made by the advertising for these pills is that it is a professional strength fat-loss formula that “handles the toughest, most relentless, never-been-lean-before, fat-loss cases.” It claims to attack fat in a variety of ways including:

  • Increases thermogenesis
  • Boosts levels of hormone sensitive lipase within the fat cell
  • Enhances thyroid hormone levels
  • Targets lipolysis in stubborn areas like the lower body, lower back and abdominal area
  • Stimulates mitochondrial uncoupling, a thermogenic process fueled by fat metabolism

The pill is designed for men and women who want to lose fat fast, maintain their muscle and feel great. The official Hot Rox Extreme product page says “It’s like taking a happy pill that makes fat disappear.”

It is important to investigate these types of claim further, such as by examining the ingredients list, as these are a very common claims that are rarely achieved, particularly without side effects or other drawbacks. Not to mention, no diet pill can make fat “disappear.”

Hot Rox Extreme Ingredients

At the time of this Hot Rox Extreme review, the ingredients in the formula include:

  • Self-Microemulsifying Thermogenic Gel
  • Caffeine

The Self-Microemulsifying Thermogenic Gel was composed of:

  • Lauroyl Macrogol-32 Glycerides
  • Raspberry ketone
  • Carbolin 19
  • Piperine
  • Yohimbine HCl

Most notably, the official Biotest product site focuses on promoting:  Carbolin 19, Yohimbine, and Raspberry Ketone.

The site references a study conducted on Carbolin 19 in which dieters using the substance lost an average of 9.9 pounds of fat and gained 8.2 pounds of muscle in a period of 12 weeks. That said, it made absolutely no reference to who conducted the study, how it was performed, when it was performed, how much Carbolin 19 was used, who the participants were, or where it was published (if it was published). Because of that, it is difficult to believe the claims that are made regarding the science behind this product.

As for yohimbine and raspberry ketone, while they are both well known in the over-the-counter (OTC) weight loss industry, neither one has ever been clinically proven to be effective for weight loss. For instant, no clinical trials of raspberry ketones found that they can cause weight loss in humans, even in studies involving mice raspberry ketones didn’t present a strong case for being ideal for weight loss.

Beware of Side Effects

It should be recognized that fat burners can be effective but they are a very powerful type of product and that they are nearly never as miraculous as the manufacturers would have you believe. Typically, they are very high in stimulants which means that they are also associated with some uncomfortable side effects that could be dangerous for people with certain health conditions or who are taking certain kinds of medications. They also require that the dieter exercise – particularly cardio – in order to truly benefit from these types of effects.

Additionally, on the product packaging for Hot Rox Extreme, there is a very serious warning, cautioning potential users about the fact that there is a risk of negative side effects due to the high level of stimulants. Some of these effects may include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Heart palpitations
  • Difficulty sleeping

Though this is not necessarily favorable in that nobody wants to experience side effects from a product that they are using, at least the company was responsible enough to give some warning, which many manufacturers fail to do.

Still, due to the high stimulant content and the warnings, it would be a good idea to first consult with your doctor before taking Hot Rox Extreme.

Hydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite

Hydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite ReviewHydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite is a non-prescription weight loss formula that was developed to provide dieters with a supplement that can be used without stimulants. While stimulants can be very helpful for supporting the dieting efforts of many people, some individuals have sensitivities to those ingredients and would prefer to choose a product without them.

According to the official description of Hydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite on the brand’s website, this product provides powerful and scientifically researched weight loss. It states that it contains the “highest concentration 95% premium CLA”. It also places the spotlight on CLA as an ingredient with backing from two scientific studies.

MuscleTech, the company behind Hydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite promises that this formula is unique and “truly works.”

Of course, anyone who has been trying to lose weight for a while or who has been looking into diet pills for even a few hours will already be familiar with that kind of claim. Therefore, it’s important to look more closely at the formula as a whole and at the scientific research the manufacturer has used to back its use of its ingredients.

At the time this review was written, the ingredients comprising the Hydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite formula include conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) derived from safflower seed oil, L-carnitine L-tartrate, garcinia indica extract (red mango fruit), C. canephora robusta extract (robusta coffee bean), raspberry ketone.

Interestingly, this product does contain an ingredient, C canephora robusta extract, which does contain a stimulant. This coffee bean ingredient does contain some caffeine. However, the amount of caffeine within that ingredient and in its extract is low enough that the brand is able to say that it is caffeine-free. It is highly unlikely that anyone would be affected by such a small amount of this substance.

Of all the ingredients in this formula, CLA has the most promising research results. This substance is not yet proven to be linked with fat loss. However, in a large number of preliminary studies, this ingredient has shown positive results for providing healthy dieting support to individuals sticking to a reduced calorie diet and who are regularly active.

To use Hydroxycut Hardcore CLA Elite according to the package direction, two softgel pills are to be taken twice daily (for a total of four pills per day). The softgels should be swallowed whole between 30 and 60 minutes before the two largest meals of the day. An extra serving of two pills can be taken up to twice more daily for more CLA benefits, though no more than 8 pill should be taken each day. The directions recommend drinking 10 glasses of water per day with these pills.

Prime Labs Thermo Burn

Prime Labs Thermo Burn ReviewSeeking extreme weight loss? Prime Labs Thermo Burn claims to provide this benefit by supporting appetite suppression, energy levels and weight loss. Part of Prime Labs’ Elite Series, Thermo Burn has been designed to work with your existing diet and exercise routine to help you achieve results.

At the time that this Prime Labs Thermo Burn review was written, the formula was composed of Green Coffee Bean, Raspberry Ketone, Garcinia Cambogia, Caffeine Anhydrous, Green Tea.

For optimal results, it is always important to take any product as directed based on the manufacturer’s suggestion or as directed by your healthcare provider. For Thermo Burn, the suggested use is to take 1 capsule twice daily, 20-30 minutes before a meal with an 8 ounce glass of water.

The three main ingredients in this formula are caffeine (also found in green coffee bean and green tea), raspberry ketone and garcinia cambogia.

Caffeine is a central nervous system stimulant that can raise blood pressure and can also act like a diuretic, increasing the frequency of urination. However, these effects are not typically common in people who take caffeine regularly. It is likely effective for increasing mental alertness and may also help to improve athletic performance. Some research has also found that caffeine may decrease appetite in some people.

Garcinia cambogia is thought to help prevent fat storage, suppress appetite and increase exercise endurance. Although it is not known if these effects occur in humans. As for raspberry ketones, it is thought to help increase the rate at which the body burns fat and may reduce appetite. That being said, just like garcinia cambogia there is no scientific evidence that raspberry ketone improves weight loss in humans.

While it is highly unlikely that you will experience extreme weight loss with Thermo Burn, you are likely to feel its stimulant effects as it contains caffeine, and substance that contain caffeine, green tea and green coffee bean. Although this could lead to benefits such as enhanced mental alertness, it may also lead to unpleasant side effects, such as anxiety, jitters, restlessness, headache, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, insomnia, and digestive upset.

Individuals who are sensitive to caffeine, or who consume other products containing caffeine while taking this diet pill, are at an increased risk of these adverse effects.

Be sure to speak with your healthcare provider before taking Prime Labs Thermo Burn, especially if you have an existing health condition and/or are currently taking any medications (prescription or non-prescription) or other herbal supplements.

Bio-Trim RX

Bio-Trim RX ReviewBio-Trim RX is a non-prescription diet pill that has been designed to function like a fat burner, appetite suppressant and carb blocker. According to the product label, it has been “specially formulated with Garcinia Cambogia, Green Coffee and Raspberry Ketone to support metabolism and weight loss.” It is a product from Vitality Fitness.

According to the Amazon sales page for the product, when this review was written (an official website for the product did not exist), the main benefits of the Bio-Trim RX formula were increased fat loss due to it being packed with “science-based premium ingredients that burn body fat.”

It also delivers improved body composition, not only increasing fat loss, but also aiding in maintaining and building lean muscle tissue for a nice looking physique. Finally, it helps suppress appetite, helping to stop food cravings, leading to increased fat loss and positive physical changes over time.

Although these are some pretty fancy claims, there is no scientific proof to back them up. Furthermore, the formula does not contain any proven ingredients for weight loss. With that in mind, when this review was created, the Bio-Trim RX formula contained an EcoGarcinia Daily Blend: Garcinia Cambogia Extract, Green Coffee Bean, Raspberry Ketone, African Mango, Acai Berry, Horny Goat Weed, L-Arginine, Psyllium Husk, Yacon, Alfalfa. There is 400 mg of the blend per 2 caplet serving.

The suggested use is to take 2 caplets by mouth daily. These are the only directions provided, which is surprising considering this product does contain green coffee bean, which has caffeine. Although it doesn’t say, it would likely be wise to avoid taking this product late in the afternoon or evening to lower the risk of experiencing possible unwanted side effects that could negatively impact your sleep, such as insomnia.

That being said, users are cautioned to consult with their healthcare provider before using Bio-Trim RX if they are pregnant, nursing or are under a doctor’s care or are taking medication.

Overall, Bio-Trim RX doesn’t appear to be a very solid weight management supplement. It contains unproven ingredients, does not backup its claim and the fact that it has “RX” in its name is also misleading. This term is used to indicate a medical prescription, which this product is definitely not.

The bottom line, it would likely be in your best interest to choose from better and more reputable weight management diet pills on the market, if you are seeking assistance with your exercise and diet efforts.

Moon Burn

Moon Burn ReviewMoon Burn is a nighttime fat burner from BeLive. According to the official website, Moon Burn is “the first ever nighttime garcinia cambogia weight loss product.” BeLive claims that this dietary supplement’s non-stimulant formula will provide improved sleep, appetite suppression and boosted metabolism all night long. In addition to promoting a more restful sleep, it also works to limit snacking and unwanted calories.

Moon Burn Formula

When this review of Moon Burn was written, the ingredients in the formula included: Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Zinc, Chromium, Garcinia Cambogia, Green Tea Leaf, White Kidney Bean, L-Theanine, CLA Oil Powder, Raspberry Ketone, 5-HTP, Melatonin, BioPerine.

The different ingredients used in the formulation were carefully selected for their specific potential benefits. According to some research, these benefits include:

Garcinia cambogia – may help to suppress appetite, block fat storage, as well as improve focus and mood.

Green tea – a powerful antioxidant that may hinder enzymes in the body to slow the breakdown of sugar, which can help promote fat loss.

White kidney bean – considered to be a carb and fat blocker and is also high in fiber. It is believed it may help to prevent unhealthy carbs from converting into fat.

CLA – conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) may help to boost metabolic rate and effectively burn off body fat mass.

L-Theanine – an amino acid that may help to assist with anti-anxiety and relaxation.

Melatonin – often used for helping with sleep cycles and may help to naturally encourage a better night’s sleep.

While all these benefits sound promising, Moon Burn isn’t likely to help you lose more weight. The reason is that in order to burn fat, you need to be active, which is the exact opposite of sleeping. With the exception of melatonin and L-Theanine, which were essentially included in this product to provide relaxation and sleep aid benefits, the other ingredients are not going to help you burn any more calories than you naturally would while sleeping.

Does it Work?

While this product isn’t likely to harm your weight loss efforts, it’s not likely to do much in terms of giving them a boost, either. This is especially true since none of these ingredients, including garcinia cambogia, have ever been scientifically proven effective for weight loss.

Before Taking Moon Burn

The suggested dose is to take 2 capsules before bedtime once a day. That said, prior to taking Moon Burn, it would be in your best interest to first run your intentions by you healthcare provider, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition or are currently taking medication or other dietary supplements.

Raspberry Ketone Fresh

Raspberry Ketone Fresh reviewRaspberry Ketone Fresh is an over the counter diet pill that has become only one of a large number of different products that have formed a category around a largely hyped natural ingredient that has received considerable focus from the media, despite the fact that there is next to nothing available in order to prove that it actually works as pill producers say. Very little is known about the effects of raspberry ketone or about how much needs to be used in order to produce those effects or to remain safe without producing unwanted side effects. So far, there aren’t any large and reputable published studies that show that measurable weight loss can result from supplementing this substance.

That said, without taking a closer look at Raspberry Ketone Fresh, it would be impossible to know whether or not this product has the chance to stand out above and beyond what others within its category would provide. This would be challenging to do, considering the vast number of products that are using raspberry ketone, but it could be that the rest of the formulation contains a number of other ingredients that are very useful, and that this one hyped ingredient was chosen only to draw attention to the product.

Unfortunately, the official website for Raspberry Ketone Fresh is clearly much more focused on making a sale than it is on actually informing its potential customers or providing those individuals with support. The first thing that a visitor to the website sees is a product package image, with a “get your bottle today” button directly below it, with a large red arrow pointing at it. Though there is a toll free number available so that contact can be made by phone instead of over the website, it is clear that this is a place to be used to order the product as opposed to having questions answered.

On the entire website, there is only one paragraph that actually attempts to describe the product for what it is. Unfortunately, that is very vague, and says only that it uses “all natural ingredients” that are meant “to promote health” and that they are “all natural ingredients”. Though the label on the product bottle calls it a fat burner, the website and the product package never make any actual weight loss claims. It appears to be focused more on overall health benefits.

This doesn’t appear all that promising as a weight loss pill, as it looks more as though they are designing the marketing materials to suggest that weight loss will result without ever actually saying it. This indicates that there is no proof that the product can actually lead a person to shed excess fat.
