The product’s name is indicative of the trend in big brand thermogenic supplements available on the market today, e.g. HydroxyCut and HydroxyStim – both advertised to deliver similar results to the consumer. In Hydrox Slim’s case, the ‘Hydrox’ part comes from one of the main inclusions in the formula: Hydroxycitric Acid, or HCA.
Hydrox Slim Total Blend Strength
The manufacturers have crammed a total of 2885mg of active ingredients into every 4 pills of Hydrox Slim, which is as full a dose as you will see in any capsule based supplement. The problem with many of the fat-burners on the shelves at the moment is that they are using single capsule doses.
They make it sound like it’s less hassle to take one pill a day rather than four, but really it’s probably just a ploy to get you to pay the same money for less ingredients. There’s not a lot that one single pill can hold, therefore there’s not a lot it will do to burn fat. And if taking four pills a day is a big burden to people then summoning the will power to exercise and eat right is going to be a big problem!
That’s a long way of saying they have dosed the formula well with Hydrox Slim. As for the ingredients themselves, that’s the really interesting part, so let’s take a look:
The blend is a mix of several components:
- HCA (from Garcinia Cambogia)
- Guarana Extract (cont. caffeine)
- Synephrine (from Citrus Aurantium)
- Salicin (from White Willow)
- Green Tea Extract
- Cayenne Pepper
- Vitamin B6
- Dandelion Root
- Uva Ursi
To begin with, the synephrine, caffeine, salicin portion of the stack is a mimic of the famous ephedrine / caffeine / aspirin stack, but it’s a lot safer and less likely to cause any stomach upset. Together they trigger a thermogenic fat-burning effect, which is further increased by Cayenne Pepper, and raise the basal metabolic rate. The also improve cognitive function and enhance motivation, drive, strength and performance. This is a very proven combination and one that forms a base for the other ingredients.
L-Carnitine, Green Tea Extract, HCA and Vit B6 are all key to the metabolism of fat and GTE specifically provides strong anti-oxidant support. L-Carnitine can also improve exercise performance and insulin sensitivity, along with Chromium, which helps partition nutrients to be stored more effectively for energy rather than fat.
Dandelion root appears to inhibit lipid accumulation in preliminary studies and Uva Ursi might deliver an anti-bloating effect via a subtle pathway involving urine acidity.
Safety and Side Effects
Again, we’d reiterate the point that this is a strong formula and when you begin taking it, you should start with a half-dose to become acclimated to it. And seek advice from a doctor if you have any doubts about the product, or if you have a medical condition. Pregnant and nursing women should not take Hydrox Slim.
If taken in accordance with the directions on the packaging, there should be no uncomfortable side effects associated with taking this product.
Is Hydrox Slim Recommended?
This product contains a very powerful mixture of fat-burning compounds. Aside from a couple of the newer, under-researched ingredients, the recipe is full of proven fat-loss agents, and we’d take Hydrox Slim for the synephrine / guarana / salicin stack on its own. As it is, there are several other elements which exert healthy weight loss behaviour in their own right.
We recommend Hydrox Slim if you are looking for a high power fat-burner; it’s arguably one of the strongest we have come across recently. If you want to try it out then please follow the link at the bottom of the page
