Hydroxycut Next Gen Review
Next Gen was an interesting fat burner to take, to say the least. In the past, we’ve taken Muscletech’s other fat burner, Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite, but this was a whole new monster.
While taking Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen, there is no denying that the product works. If you take it, and moderate your caloric intake, you will lose weight.
Will it be the most weight loss with a fat burner possible? No. But it will be fat loss worth getting excited over just like those in our more popular fat burners ranking.
While taking Hydroxycut Next Gen, Experience was a big factor (but not positive)
We took Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen in both 1 pill and 2 pill dosages across 4 weeks, and the sensation this fat burner gave us never was pleasant. To put it simply, this stuff is way, way too stimulating on the CNS (central nervous system).
The sensation goes from a moderate caffeine boost quickly into a supercharged jittery craze that simply never stops. Normally while taking a supplement like this, our personal productivities go through the roof. However, with this one we were too cracked out to really be productive.
Personally for myself, I found that even simple tasks like driving through heavy traffic caused serious heart rate increases, which is way, way out of my norm.
Between the team, and other guys we’ve talked too – this isn’t a rare occurrence. It seems that the general theme with Hydroxycut Hardcore products is “a wild ride with decent results”. But for us, the ride simply isn’t sensible when other highly effective fat burner options are available.
Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen Vs Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite
Both versions of Muscletech’s Hydroxycut Hardcore are intense experiences, and both can help you burn more calories. However, in our opinion the experience that Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite offers is much more manageable and enjoyable.
This is most likely due to the similar, but less diverse ingredient profile in Hardcore Elite. Essentially, Hardcore Next Gen has more ingredients present than Hardcore Elite does.
Ingredients in Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen
Green Coffee Blend 400 mg
The extract of green coffee bean (before the beans are roasted to make coffee beans) has been involved in a few key studies that demonstrate its potential for fat loss. While there is not a wide array of studies available, one of the most predominant boasts approximately 10 pounds of fat loss over about 2 months.
Caffeine Anhydrous 290 mg
Caffeine is the most popular ingredient in fat burner supplements. In a nutshell, caffeine increase energy, thermogenesis, and often works to potentiate other fat burning ingredients. As long as it’s properly dosed and timed, caffeine is a great asset.
We must note however that 290 mg is on the high end for this kind of multi-ingredient supplement.
Coleus Extract 100 mg
Coleus forskolin has had a few key studies suggest that it may support metabolism. Of these studies, more specific evidence has suggested that Coleus Forskolin actually raises testosterone levels.
Blue Skullcap Extract 75 mg
We really don’t know a whole lot about Blue Skullcap off the cuff, but research suggests that it’s primarily a mental stimulant. Meaning, it adds to the stimulatory effect of Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen.
Yohimbe Extract 40 mg
Yohimbe is an ingredient that isn’t exactly widely accepted by the supplement industry. Muscletech loves adding it into things, however, it simply doesn’t react well with everyone. While it burns fat and increases testosterone, it also often causes strange symptoms.
Ophiopogon Extract 25 mg
Used in eastern medicine, Ophiopogon Extract is suggested to be calming. This insinuates that it may be meant to calm-over the many stimulatory ingredients in Hydroxycut Hardcore. Additionally, Ophiopogon can be used to alleviate dry mouth.
Guayusa 20 mg
Guayusa is an Amazonian rainforest herb known to contain several stimulants. These stimulants add to this fat burners thermogenesis potential as well as add a more diverse energy profile.
Conclusion on this Muscletech Fat Burner
Overall, this product just went a little too far with the stimulants. If you are a stimulant junkie who drinks 1MR Vortex for a little old pick-me-up – then this may be your supplement.
However, for the majority of people we really believe that the stimulant matrix is going to be overkill and you are better off with other options.
After all, sacrificing sleep and focus isn’t necessary. Either way, if you really want to try Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen, be sure to test it out at 1 capsule a day to start. As you go, be sure to check back with us and let us know how your run went!
