MuscleTech Hydroxycut TITANIUM Fat Burner Review // What Separates This From The Best?
MuscleTech Hydroxycut TITANIUM Fat Burner Review First Look:
I am still suffering from Gastroenteritis. This means that while the hospital game me an IV drip for re-hydration after being stuck in Italy and France for 5 days sweating my tits off and shitting yellow water every 2 or 3 hours the end result is someone who is extremely exhausted.
I am currently sleeping for about 15 hours straight per night. Sweating in my sleep as I have a fever and I have hemorrhoids. Every visit to the toilet ends in whimpering and gently dabbing my anus clean.
Yes, then I have to use a cream and rub that all over my anus too to lay on the bed for a few moments recovering.
Needless to say I am not at work, I am unsure how I could perform this ritual in the office.
I have no developed a massive hunger. Basically of toast with peanut butter.
What’s the moral of the story? Massive weight, mind and soul loss can be achieved if you eat the wrong thing while on vacation.
I wholeheartedly do not recommend it though. Seriously.
At some point or another you are going to have to explain to co-workers and clients why you are sat on a rubber ring at your desk.
As far as fat loss via the more conventional routes a steady path of exercise, weight lifting and good nutrition is the best way forward.
Then, when you want an extra bit of help it is time to look at the supplements. What can help you get that little edge you require?
That is why we go through as many products as possible to see what is worth your money and what isn’t because the supplement biz is a massive industry that is also unregulated.
Therefore, unless it is an illegal substance no-one is out there saying whether a supplement is good or not. Safe or not. A scam or not.
What can this particular product from MuscleTech offer?
Considering MuscleTech appear to have every last little niche of fat burner or testosterone booster covered with the widest variety of different ingredients possible it is amazing to see how many times they fuck it up.
If you used all of their products at one you would get some good results, because in there would be the ingredients, vitamins, mineral and nutrients required.
However, considering each product is about $80 each and considering they have a massive number of products this is impossible.
It would be nice if just for a change they put all of the good in and effective ingredients together in 1 product rather than just 1 effective ingredient in each product.
Thus saving a lot of time, effort and analysis.
Niacinamide (Vit B3) – Higher amounts of niacin can improve cholesterol levels and lower cardiovascular risks and maybe symptoms for Alzheimer’s . However, the jury is out on these real benefits.
C. Canephora Robusta (Green Coffee Extract) – Evidence from research has indicated that the consumption of caffeinated coffee can lead to some reductions in long-term weight gain.
These weight loss results are likely to be due to the known thermogenic effects of the caffeine.
This is found in the best fat burners such as Instant Knockout.
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.
Beta-cryptoxanthin (Satsuma) – This is interesting, studies say that this may actually be protective against lung cancer. Not only that, it may be able to prevent the spread of malignant cells and build muscle.
BioPerine – The extract of piperine, called BioPerine® in the patented form, has been clinically tested in the United States.
Forslean (Coleus forskohlii) – Forskolin is a chemical found in the roots of the plant Plectranthus barbatus.
This plant has been used since ancient times to treat heart disorders such as high blood pressure and chest pain (angina), as well as respiratory disorders such as asthma, it can also assist with reducing fat mass in obese people.
However, no reliable scientific information that shows Coleus forskohlii extracts taken by mouth are effective.
Alpiniae Officinarum (Galangal) – Very much like ginger and used as a stimulant. No evidence suggestion it works like a stimulant though.
Euphoria Longana (Dimocarpus Longan) – There’s not enough evidence to suggest Longan fruit as a recommended option for anything although it might be a useful functional food to ingest for cognitive purposes.
Kaempferia parviflora – Previously used for centuries as a folk style medicine. Any results from studies do seem to offer some slight positive benefits and no unwanted side effects have been noted.
Increased grip strength has been noted in trials as has an increase of sexual stimuli. More tests needed to warrant exact benefits.
Testing for its ability to increase physical performance fell flat.
The advice is to work ourselves up to taking 2 capsules twice daily which provides an inadequate 1534.6mg daily.
This is a very low daily dose when compared with the best fat burners which tend to offer in excess of 3000mg.
Already we are looking at a shortfall of around 50%
Effects & Benefits:
Unlike many products we see from MuscleTech this scales back the ingredient profile by offering just 9 ingredients. We are normally offered a mind boggling array of content that offers no the little real value.
However, it looks good on the side and can be confusing to the consumer and more usually means better so they buy it anyway.
Therefore to see a concise amount on the ingredients panel is refreshing.
As a result though, we only have 2 ingredients that are present that would be considered as thermogenic and increase energy expenditure.
This is Caffeine and C. canephora.
Bioperine helps with the absorption of the ingredients so they are as effective as possible.
The other ingredient which is interesting is Satsuma; it may provide anti-cancer properties while building muscle.
Realistically, at best we have 4 effective or at least beneficial ingredients. Let us not forget that one of those ingredients is merely a transporter or delivery agent (insert Jason Statham here).
The other beneficial ingredient (Satsuma) does nothing for fat burn but can help build muscle and prevent the spread of malignant cells.
The remaining 5 ingredients offer no real, qualified benefit. Especially none that will help with the reduction of fat mass anyway.
There’s also a really low amount dosed daily. At just over 1500mg this is significantly lower than the best fat burners available.
If we take the effective ingredients away from that total we are left with just 914.6mg of beneficial ingredients per day.
The best fat burners offer a good 8, 9 or even 10 ingredients that are all proven to work to help burn fat. Every single inclusion has a purpose.
What they include that this doesn’t are ingredients such as:
- Green Tea
MuscleTech Hydroxycut TITANIUM Fat Burner Review Conclusion:
We did initially think that MuscleTech had trimmed the fat so to speak and held back on any unnecessary ingredients to create this no nonsense fat burner.
They did this to a certain extent. However, they still failed.
Still more than half of the listed and included ingredients are not particularly beneficial when it comes to reducing fat. Let’s face it, that is exactly why we would buy such a product in the first instance.
It also omits many other proven and effective ingredients found in the best fat burners. Why? Who knows!
Only MuscleTech are capable of producing the largest amount of products available to achieve 1 goal and still miss the mark. Every single time.
So while this does contain some great ingredients, they are on the minority and there are better products out there which you can read about, here.
