Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Lipodrene Xtreme Fat Burner Review
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Lipodrene Xtreme Fat Burner Review First Look:
Recently I am unashamedly pleased with the progress I am going through with my body.
Muscles are bigger, strength is slowly increasing and since combining both fat burner and cycling to work I have lost lots of visceral fat.
My abdominal muscles and obliques are now making their presence known much more and I like it, just in time for my vacation in September.
However, just before then, tonight even I will be in a corporate box at the rugby league to watch Leeds Rhinos take on Wigan Warriors. This includes three course meal plus free, unlimited booze.
This is my idea of heaven and I cannot wait.
I will have to cycle extra fast home and quickly get my number one’s on to then rush over to the stadium for a night of debauched drunkenness.
Yet, plenty of wine does not exactly help when it comes to staying in shape, or even cutting fat.
It’s a hell of a lot of calories to process and I do not intend on jogging home at the end of the night, in fact I do not intend to remember by name or what I look like at the end of the night.
So, along with a decent diet and a bit of exercise it is also good to incorporate a fat burner such as Instant Knockout in to your regime in order to keep the booze induced calories at bay.
This does actually look a bit extreme just like its moniker, due to the vivid redness of it all.
Even though it is called Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals it looks nothing but seedy and sleazy…nothing pharma about it.
Almost turns me off. It looks like something you would buy from a vending machine in the men’s bathroom in a bar.
Isopropylnorsynephrine – This is able to break down fats more effectively than citrus aurantium with little adverse effects.
- B-phenylethylamine hcl – Used for treating depression and increasing athletic performance. No evidence to substantiate these claims.
Limited supplemental usage due to being rapidly broken down into inactive components.
- Methylsynephrine (Oxilofrine, p-hydroxyephedrine) – A banned substance that can cause cardiac arrest. You can read more about it here and here.
Caffeine Anhydrous – The purest form of caffeine available. It stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), heart, muscles, and the centers that control blood pressure to give you an extra boost and hit that PB.
This is found in Instant Knockout which is the best fat burner available at present.
Green Tea – well known to have many powerful health benefits. Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat.
One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese.
Some researchers think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect. Green tea extract is found in many a good fat burning supplement.
Theobromine – Theobromine can reduce sleepiness and in large quantities produces a jittery sensation.
Yohimbe – Related to Yohimbine, Yohimbe is a powerful stimulant and used to increase fat loss as well as assist with erectile dysfunction. Can cause a host of other problems though, this is in our supplements to avoid list.
Supplementation with yohimbine combined with resistance training does not significantly alter the body mass, muscle mass, or performance indicators.
Naringin – This displays strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities.
Known as a citrus flavonoid and found in grapefruit, it is also good for reducing cholesterol, high blood pressure, overall obesity as well as improving cardiovascular health.
Hoodia Gordonii – Hoodia fails to suppress the appetite and may also be mildly toxic and imprudent to supplement.
Rasberry Ketone – Whilst touted as a miracle weight loss supplement and sometimes for lean muscle mass it is important to keep in mind that there is no reliable scientific evidence that it improves weight loss when taken by people.
5-methoxytryptamine – Studies suggest that this could possess hallucinogenic properties when it was tested on monkeys due to their limb shakes.
5-hydroxytryptophan (Griffonia Simplicifolia, 5-HTP) – This chemical increases the synthesis of serotonin which helps against insomnia, binge eating and helps with your mood and well being. Anyone who is or used to go clubbing to house music will know a thing or two about serotonin!
Researchers believe 5-HTP led people to feel more full (satiated) after eating, so they ate less.
In a study, those who took 5-HTP lost about 2% of body weight during a non-diet period and another 3% when they dieted. However doses were so high they left many with a feeling of nausea.
Bitter Orange (Citrus Aurantium) – At present, Citrus aurantium may be the best thermogenic substitute for ephedra. However, more studies are needed to establish this definitively.
Bitter orange is possibly unsafe when taken as a supplement for a medical purpose such as weight loss.
Bitter orange, particularly when taken with stimulants such as caffeine or caffeine-containing herbs, increases the risk for high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack, stroke, and other severe side effects.
There are reports that bitter orange can trigger headaches, including migraine and cluster headaches, in some people.
Bitter orange can cause sensitivity to the sun. Wear sunblock outside, especially if you are light-skinned.
Citrus natsudaidai Hayata, Citrus limonium, Citrus junos Sieb. ex Tanaka – All of these have lipolytic effects, Citrus Natsudaidai Hayata showing the strongest effects.
There’s 90 pills per bottle which means 3 pills per day.
We prefer at least 4 pills spread out across the course of the day to ensure our body has a constant supply of ingredients to process.
Even so, this only equates to a low 1935mg.
This dose isn’t too great considering some of the supplements we come across and compares well with the best fat burners which tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
Effects & Benefits:
There are 6 effective fat burning ingredients present here.
Plus then the Citrus blend. All of which are able to break down fats.
Two of these ingredients are commonly found in the top 3 fat burners we have trialed and reviewed.
Green Tea and Caffeine are both reliable and proven ingredients that not only help raise the metabolism but do this safely.
However, some of the ingredients here do have their adverse effects…
Yohimbe is the only ingredient present that could actually help with fat loss, but not without the potential cardio vascular risks.
5-methoxytryptamine appears to be a mild hallucinogenic which is not what you want if you operate machinery or generally just want to have a clear head.
The Citrus Aurantium is the most potentially troublesome of the citrus blend.
Citrus Aurantium can cause headaches at best and high blood pressure or even a heart attack at worse.
Then there’s the list of ingredients that do not work such as Raspberry Ketones, Senegalia Berlandieri and Hoodia.
Plus there’s a fairly low dose overall.
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Lipodrene Xtreme Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
This does have some good, fat burning ingredients in this supplement from Hi-Tech.
The only real criticisms are that the daily dose is low compared to some others, plus while it has some good ingredients, at least three of them can cause unwanted issues which handicaps this supplement when side by side with other, safe fat burners.
Not only that, there are then a further three ingredients that are not proven to offer and fat burning benefits.
There are superior and safer fat burners on the market though which you should consider taking a look at..
