Hydroxycut 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.
