Full of ingredients that are turning up the heat and thermogenic fat-burning power in beta testers all over the U.S., Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite promises to get your heart pumping, your body sweating and your mind completely focused on your transformation goals.

According to its advertisements, this supplement will help you “experience extreme energy, make your workouts intense, feel renewed focus and commitment to gaining the physique you’ve always wanted, and enjoy a buzz and rush that only comes from pure Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite energy!”

Let’s see if Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite is as good as it claims to be.

Under the Lid

The first aspect of Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite we noticed is its individual ingredient quantities. Unlike most weight loss supplements–and even most Hydroxycut products–this diet pill doesn’t contain any proprietary blends. Let’s take a closer look:

Caffeine Anhydrous (270 mg)
Caffeine anhydrous is a dehydrated form of caffeine that increases energy, boosts thermogenesis, and speeds metabolism. Studies show that caffeine can promote weight loss when combined with diet and exercise [1].

Coleus Extract (250 mg)
Coleus releases enzymes that unlock the energy within your fat cells so they can finally be burned away. The extract works safely and provides stimulation to the thyroid gland, releasing metabolism-promoting hormones.

Green Coffee Extract (200 mg)
Green coffee extract contains the antioxidant CGA, which blocks the small intestine’s glucose absorption. This lowers the bloodstream’s glucose levels, making the body use fat cells for energy instead of carbohydrates. As a result, the body burns away fat and loses weight.

Yohimbe (56.3 mg)
Yohimbe is an all-natural extract clinically proven to promote weight loss when taken at approximately 15-30 mg per day [2]. Clearly Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite contains enough yohimbe to be effective.

Cocoa Extract 100 mg
Cocoa enhances endurance and increases energy with its natural caffeine stores. As a result, you’ll be able to exercise longer and push yourself harder.

L-Theanine 100 mg
L-theanine is crucial to this formula because it eases caffeine’s negative effects. Since Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite contains caffeine anhydrous, green coffee, and cocoa, L-theanine prevents the otherwise possible jitters, insomnia, and headaches.

Customer Reviews

What do real users say about Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite?

TheShaft (BodyBuilding.com): “I used this before running and I felt really hot, hotter than when I took any other fat burner or preworkout. I felt nauseous and had no energy. I tried it again months later, 2 pills, and sweat started rolling down my arms even though I was just sitting there. I got extremely cold, I had 2 sweatshirts on and was shivering like I was naked in the snow. It was the first time I skipped the gym in 3 months of lifting daily. I have taken many stimulants and this one scared me to death.”

Doom0619 (BodyBuilding.com): “I will sum the product up with one word: AWESOME.”

Rosie Medina (Amazon.com): “Side effects are noticeable but tolerable…Be careful if you have never taken this kind of product as it can cause you to feel dizzy and jittery if you don’t have a tolerance for it.”

Antonia Taglauer (Amazon.com): “I started taking these pills and my stomach began to hurt…I discontinued use immediately and my pain eventually subsided.”

Deborah Price “Artlady” (Amazon.com): “I tried to use this…As someone who consumes no caffeine, I was unable to tolerate this product. The first time I took it I was totally surprised at the burst of energy. I thought it wan’t bad…One day I tried two pills and felt sick to my stomach all day. I have had headaches almost every day while taking these. As far as appetite suppressing, I did not notice any effect at all. I did not lose any weight, either.”

From these reviews, we learn some important things about Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite. For starters, if you have any caffeine sensitivities at all, this is not the product for you. You will undoubtedly experience negative side effects.

We also learn not to completely write off the product as ineffective. Some users, like Doom0619, liked how it worked for them.
