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.

Green Stinger

Green Stinger reviewGreen Stinger is an over the counter weight loss pill that has become popular among dieters who have tried many other products and who have reached the end of their tether in terms of not finding something that is truly effective and powerful enough to meet their expectations. That said, just because a product is selected by people who have become frustrated with many other available products, it doesn’t necessarily mean that this one will work. It is important to look more closely into weight loss supplements before taking them as they aren’t always what they seem.

In this case, Green Stinger is marketed as being a powerful thermogenic. In this way, it is supposed to increase the body temperature in order to cause the body to burn through more calories and stored fat in order to fuel this additional heat. How does it do this? With ephedra.

Therein lies the problem. Ephedra may be marketed as a powerful thermogenic and it may very well work to boost the body temperature to increase fat burning and calorie burning, but there is a very dark side to this ingredient, as well. This substance has been associated with a number of very powerful and dangerous side effects, including an increased risk of stroke, heart attack and other cardiac issues. Moreover, it has also been directly connected with several deaths.

This substance has been banned from weight loss pills by the FDA due to the number of reported adverse reactions and fatalities connected with its use. For this reason, Green Stinger is, in fact, illegal for production, sale and purchase in the United States. This is the case in a number of other countries, as well. Therefore, even if you weren’t afraid of the potentially risky side effects, you are also putting yourself at risk of getting into some hot water due to the fact that this is not a legal product.

If that wasn’t enough, consider the rest of the formula. It contains: ephedra extract, yohimatrix (two versions of yohimbine HCl), citrus aurantium, synephrine extract, acacia rigidula, phenylethylamine HCl, Theobroma CoCoa, green tea extract, naringen, pure white willow bark extract, evodiamine and TriENRG (kola nut, guarana extract and yerba mate).

This means that this product actually contains a long list of additional stimulants beyond ephedra, including a combination of stimulants against which the FDA has released a consumer warning (sinephrine and caffeine, which are both contained in this product from multiple sources).
