If you are in the market for a fat burner, you may have come across Lipodrene before. This fat burner is widely popular and has produced great results for many.
However, you have options. The makers of the Lipodrene fat loss supplement have come out with other versions that are tailored to what their customers have been requesting. No matter what your goal or situation you can find a Lipodrene product for you.
Let’s take a quick look at these main products in this family so you can make an informed decision of which is right for you.
Lipodrene with Ephedra
Let’s start with the product that started it all, Lipodrene with Ephedra. Created by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals, this product has been the top selling weight loss product in America that contains ephedra.
Now, you may be taking a step back at the mere mention of ephedra as you may have heard claims about how dangerous it is. Keep in mind most people who are experiencing harsh side effects with ephedra are those who are abusing the supplement, taking far more than they should or who already have pre-existing health conditions that should exclude them from using it. This product can raise your blood pressure level, so do keep in mind if you are someone who is already suffering from high blood pressure, you will want to tread carefully with this product.
If you are otherwise healthy and use ephedra properly it should not pose a threat to your health. As alway, please consult a medication professional before starting any new supplementation.
Lipodrene provides you with 25 mg of Thermo-Z brand Ephedra Extract, which is a legal version of the ephedra plant (certain versions are now banned for sale in the US market).
Along with this, you also get other potent ingredients such as:
- Green tea extract, which has antioxidant and metabolic boosting properties
- Hoodia extract, which can take the edge off your appetite
- Synephrine HCl, to help boost energy levels
- Caffeine, to help assist with increasing natural energy levels and a boost to your resting metabolic rate
…and much more. Those who use it report seeing fast results when combined with a proper diet and exercise program.
Lipodrene Hardcore with Ephedra
Is regular Lipodrene not enough for you? Not to worry, now you have another option: Lipodrene Hardcore is the second supplement in the family to consider. If you want more powerful results, this one might be for you.
You’re going to get many of the same ingredients in this version of Lipodrene, however for some ingredients, the dosages are higher. For instance, you only take in 100 mg of caffeine per serving with Lipodrene with Ephedra, while with Lipodrene Hardcore with Ephedra, you’ll take in 200 mg. The total amount of Thermo-Z brand Ephedra Extract does stay the same however.
In addition to that, Lipodrene Hardcore with Ephedra also contains a special blend for providing you with both quick release as well as sustained release so it hits you fast but doesn’t lead to the unwanted crash that you get with many stimulant-based products. This sustained release formula also means you continue to burn fat all throughout the day, which increases your overall results.
On top of that, you’ll feel more energized when dieting, which is a relief for many as typically energy levels take a sharp nosedive for most of the day.
If you’re someone who doesn’t want ephedra, Lipodrene Elite may be a good option for you to consider. The all star in this product is Coca leaves, which provide a number of great benefits to dieters everywhere. They are known to help:
- Fend off fatigue, giving you more energy during the day
- Suppress hunger – your drive to eat is dramatically reduced
- Boost serotonin and dopamine, both of which can help combat cravings for carb rich foods and improve your mood and motivation
- Increase your desire to maintain your diet and workout program – for those who are constantly falling off the bandwagon, this product can help you get more consistent
When most people diet, the level of serotonin in their blood stream drops dramatically and this is what can lead them to experience a never-ending thirst for carbohydrates. When you have Lipodrene Elite on your side, you can help put an end to this, making it that much easier to stay on track with your diet plan.
This product will also provide you with such ingredients as caffeine, green tea extract, as well as citrus aurantium extract, all of which continue to deliver powerful energy and metabolic enhancement.
Note that this product is still a stimulant due to the fact that it does contain caffeine, so if you are someone who is sensitive to caffeine, you will need to look elsewhere. Caffeine is one of the most powerful energizing ingredients you can get in a supplement and does help to enhance the weight loss process. This is why you find it in so many popular fat burners on the market.
Research1 has shown that habitual consumption of both caffeine and green tea extract produce noticeable improvements in body composition results.
This is another Lipodrene supplement that does not include ephedra. Lipodrene Xtreme is ideal for those who need an extreme fat burning supplement, but prefer to not use any containing ephedra.
As with the other Lipodrene products, this one contains an ingredient known as Senegalia Berlandieri extract, often called the ephedrine imposter. It has been shown to increase metabolic rate and thermogenesis.
Plus, Lipodrene Xtreme contains DMHA (2-Aminoisoheptane HCl). This ingredient is known to provide a feel good energy, focus, and performance enhancing effect for its users. We have to warn you though, we only recommend this ingredient for advanced/experienced users.
What makes Lipodrene Xtreme so special though is its triple layered tablet. The outer most layer (containing Explotab® technology) immediately releases ingredients for a speedy explosion of energy. The middle layer delivers active ingredients which help to burn fat and increase thermogenesis and sustain energy levels. Then, the inner most layer releases more active ingredients for superior long-lasting energy and maintained fat loss effects.
Finally, the last supplement (but definitely not least) that you may want to look at is HydroxyElite. While not technically part of the Lipodrene family, this product is made by the same company and offers many similar benefits. It’s another ephedra-free fat burner for those who are more sensitive to stimulants will want to consider.
While this is not a stimulant-free product, it’s designed to help you get sustained energy release without that feeling of jitteriness that many may experience. It also won’t leave you crashing after using it but rather, it’ll wear off gradually, ensuring you feel your very best as it does.
This product contains just 100 mg of caffeine per serving, so is not something that should cause any issues for most people and won’t give you that overwhelmed feeling where you can’t even focus in the gym.
With caffeine, as many do experience, more is not always better.
This product also contains other powerful fat burning compounds including the very popular Garcinia Combogia extract, to help your fat burning experience become elevated to the next level.
You’ll reap both physical as well as psychological benefits when using HydroxyElite.
So there you have the line-up of fat loss supplements you may want to consider utilizing as you go about your fat loss program. Remember that no product is going to magically help you lose weight without effort on your part. You still do need to combine these with a proper diet and workout program, but when all those are lined up properly, they can certainly help you see better results than you’ve seen before.
Note: It is best to take as directed on the bottle, starting with the lowest dosage first to assess your own tolerance and then build up from there if necessary.
Also, always remember fat loss is different from weight loss, so do not d’well on what your scale says. Rather, look for noticeable physical changes like looser fitting clothes and more muscle definition. Muscle is more dense than fat.
