Pro Supps Mr. HYDE Cutz Fat Burner Review
This looks like everything I hate about bodybuilding products; the wild, beast mentality of a 17 year old boy who had been let loose in a gym with his lifting mittens. Surely this sort of branding and packaging only appeals to that market..?! For me it is an instant turnoff, I want something that looks professional, not cooked up in he trunk of Nissan Skyline. I barely even wanted to look at tit but it is popular at the moment of bodybuilding.com so I had to see what the fuss was about.
Luckily for Mr. Hyde there is no proprietary blend present. See the video below if you are not sure what a proprietary blend is, also I would avoid anything that has one for future reference.
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.
Dicaffeine Malate – Caffeine and Malic Acid bonded. Malic acid is found in apples and the two combined help prevent the crash once the caffeine has worn off.
Encapfeine – More caffeine.
CLA – human studies on CLA are very unreliable and the overall effects seen with CLA are not overly potent as well as sometimes contradicting.
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate – This is typically used for physical performance and power output but there are very mixed results. 1000-1400mg required daily for any benefits to be had such as fat burning, however, the studies are on elderly people, this is much the same for any lean mass gains.
L-carnitine – Acetyl-L-carnitine helps the body produce energy. It is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes. It is a very popular supplement and widely proven to be active drugs for the therapy of symptoms associated with male aging. Any fat loss tends to be associated with the extra energy provided by this compound which in turn increases exercise.
Capsaicin – Thermogenic and raise your body temperature which burns more calories.
L-Arginine Alpha-ketoisocaproic – Studies have shown that this does not alter moderate- nor improve high-intensity single-bout exercise performance in young resistance-trained males.
Choline Bitartrate – Taking choline by mouth does not seem to improve athletic performance or lessen fatigue during exercise.
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine – Tyrosine is taken for depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the inability to stay awake (narcolepsy), and improving alertness following sleep deprivation. It is also used for stress, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Dandelion – There’s many uses for dandelion, however, there’s no real evidence to suggest it works for any of them.
Theacrine (1,3,7,9-tetramethyluric acid) – An alkaloid molecule which can be seen as a structurally modified version of caffeine. However, although it is similar to caffeine whereby it has a sedative effect at relatively low doses, but where this sedative effect with caffeine is at an impractically low dose with theacrine it is the dose normally consumed by tea.
Yohimbe – Related to Yohimbine, Yohimbe is a powerful stimulant and used to increase fat loss as well as assist with erectile dysfunction.
For our in-depth ingredients guide checkout:
1 scoop per day. Now, having your dose spread throughout the day, usually in pill form is much easier to deal with but also provides you with an ongoing stream of nutrients for your body to work with, the best fat burners have a better dosing schedule. 1 scoop is going to ply you with all of this caffeine plus everything else so you will be high as a lite for an hour then nothing for the next 23 hours.
The scoop is only 3.9g, there are some out there at 8g.
There are 13 ingredients, 6 will be effective to burn fat…in a way. This product is stimulant heavy. The only real reason you will burn fat is because you are like a rabbit on speed. It will hype you p so you are constantly wanting to run around and burn up all the energy and metabolize fat and calories.
L-cartinine L-tartrate may have been helpful but we’re at least 750mg short here per day to be any use.
The capsaicin will be useful and you should feel a bit extra warmth as your body temp rises slightly.
As previously mentioned, this is laden with stimulants, if you are sensitive to a mild cup of Joe, you are going to probably stab someone and commit grand theft auto all within one night on this stuff and then come round in a gay bar with loads of ‘bears’ looking at you curiously…nope, wait a minute, that was my night out last Saturday.
But seriously, this will probably make you blind for 1 hour and all jittery. Which is a shame because it really isn’t metabolizing fat rather kick your ass in to unwittingly shaking your legs under the desk which will burn 50 extra calories.
The whole powder and scoop thing isn’t really practical, I feel like it is just en vogue at the moment and it seems a bit more ‘fun’ or novel. Either way, taking 4 pills per day is ideal and more convenient for those of us that don’t just want to pose for IG snaps with a shaker.
Overall the dosing recommendation isn’t great and this is going to make even the most ardent coffee fans twitch involuntarily which could be dangerous whilst driving, operating machinery or just shaving your face, you’ll come out of the bathroom like Edward Scissor hands has just tried to kiss you.
They’re missing out key ingredients like Green tea, B12, B6, Zinc and even Glucomannan.
