The weight loss supplement voted the best overall fat burner for 4 years in a row; HydroxyElite! We’re not joking. Within the last 4 years HydroxyElite has remained our top-selling fat burner. Now just because it’s the most popular, doesn’t mean it’s for everyone. If you’re still browsing through fat burners don’t forget to checkout our other top fat burners of 2020.
Now let’s breakdown the formula and figure out what makes HydroxyElite so good!
Caffeine is a great foundation stimulant. It’s the most common stimulant found in food and supplements. Caffeine can aid in increasing your metabolism, energy, and suppress your appetite. (1)
As we mentioned above, 2-Aminoisoheptane is a DMAA-like stimulant. But DMHA actually shares similar structures to 3 compounds:
- DMBA (AMP Citrate)
- and tuaminoheptane (2-aminoheptane)
Rauwolscine is a diastereoisomers of Yohimbine. There are a couple of ways yohimbine functions. The main way is through blocking alpha-2 adrenergic receptors located in fat cells. Once yohimbine has bound with a fat cell, it “turns off” the alpha receptor. Which allows the fat cells to mobilize and burn off (3).
Walnut Bark Extract:
Garcinia Cambogia Extract:
HydroxyElite’s contains 200mgs of Garcinia Cambogia Extract. This ingredient contains HCA which inhibits fatty acid synthesis in the body. In addition to this, all the stimulants will have some appetite suppression properties. (6)
Bauhinia Purpurea may assist with stimulating your thyroid. These thyroid stimulating properties can contribute to boosting metabolic activities and increase in energy expenditure. (7)
There are two main fat burning effects from this ingredient. First, it may assist with burning fat through stimulating beta-adrenergic receptors; similarly to Yohimbine. In addition to this, it may thermogenesis through by increasing the action of uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1). (7,8)
Lastly, we have the Bacopa Monnieri; which is typically used as a brain-enhancer and may assist with reducing anxiety and improve memory formation. (9)
Keep in mind that everyone’s experiences will vary. Because of this, what works for some individuals may not work for you. But it’s up to you let us know how it compares to what you’ve already tried. So if you do checkout HydroxyElite, don’t forget to leave a review!
Review By Jess: “The best fat burner there is. I have taken it for years.” (Posted on 8/30/21)
Review By Crystal: “Only been on Hydroxy Elite for 5 days and so far i can say the amount of energy it gives you is awesome. The formula is still strong but that’s what i like about this product. Don’t know if it’s helped me with losing weight yet but I will update at a later time. I can also say it definitely helped with suppressing my appetite. I have to remind myself to eat.” (Posted on 5/21/2019)
Review By Kevin: “I bought this product a week ago and it has been great so far . In 7 – 8 days using the product I have lost almost 5lbs. I have noticed that my hunger & cravings have been greatly reduced. I usually take one Pill in the morning & one pill at night. It might still be too early to tell whether this product if effective for an extended period of time but so far it has worked as advertised . Definitely a great alternative to the discontinued OXYElite Pro. Give this product a try !” (Posted on 5/7/2019)
In this section, we’re going to go over all the common questions we get about HydroxyElite.
How Does it Compare To The Original OxyELITE Pro?
OxyElite Pro contained a proprietary blend consisting of 119.5mg of active ingredients. Then an additional 100mg for caffeine. Compared to HydroxyElite’s 519.5mg of active ingredients, OxyElite falls short.
As you can see, we’ve already checked off the ingredients shared between them. The ONLY ingredient in OxyElite Pro that HydroxyElite does not have is DMAA.
Why Doesn’t HydroxyElite Contain DMAA?
Back in October 2017, the FDA stopped Hi-Tech Pharma from manufacturing with DMAA. The ability to manufacture with DMAA has been in court ever since. So for now, HydroxyElite doesn’t contain DMAA. Since the new formula, we have received hundreds of positive feedback. In fact, HydroxyElite remains the top-selling fat burner. But if you’re still unsure if HydroxyElite is right for you, just look at our customer reviews.
Instead of DMAA, HydroxyElite contains 2-Aminoisoheptane. This is a DMAA-like stimulant that goes by several names. In fact, DMAA and 2-aminoisoheptane actually work in the same fashion. It is naturally found in Walnut Bark extract or the bark from the Juglans Regia tree.
Can Women Take It?
|Absolutely! HydroxyElite is not gender-specific. Both Men & Women can take HydroxyElite. Exception: Women who are pregnant or nursing should not take any fat burners.|
HydroxyElite VS Lipodrene: Which is better?
All fat burners have different ingredient profiles that make them good for someone. It’s important to remember that everyone will have a different experience and results. With that said, based on the label, Lipodrene has a stronger stimulant profile than HydroxyElite. But HydroxyElite has a better appetite suppressant profile.
So if you’re looking for a fat burner that’s more energy based? Try Lipodrene. But if you want a fat burner to help with your appetite? Try HydroxyElite.

Can I Take It With A Pre-Workout Or Other Stimulants?
Although HydroxyElite is not a heavy stimulant fat burner, you should assess your tolerance to it. We wouldn’t recommend taking it along with a pre workout. Too many stimulants can cause undesirable side effects. Such that includes but is not limited to:
Should I cycle it?
The longer you take caffeine and other stimulants, the more your body becomes desensitized. To avoid this, you should take at least 2 weeks off fat burners before starting a new bottle.
What can I take in between cycles?
Luckily, there are a ton of non-stimulant fat burners and weight loss supplements that you can take when you’re off-cycle. But, more current research is needed to establish the effectiveness of these supplements.
CLA: Conjugated Linoleic Acid
CLA is a fatty acid in dairy products and some meat products too. In terms of weight loss, studies indicate CLA for 12 weeks could reduce body fat in overweight adults. AND help prevent weight gain. (10,11)
Carnitine is a derivative of amino acids. It’s found in almost every cell in the body. But what makes it useful for fat loss is that it helps promote transportation of fatty acids. During this transportation the fatty acids are oxidized and able to be used for energy. (12)
Garcinia Cambogia Extract is potent for Hydroxy Citric Acid or HCA. HCA not only helps with appetite suppression, but also may inhibits fatty acid synthesis.(4)
Is there anything I can take with HydroxyElite to help with weight loss?
Yes! In fact, you can combine the products above with your HydroxyElite.

I haven’t lost weight, am I doing something wrong?
If you’re not getting the results you want, there are a couple of questions you have to ask yourself.
First things first, is your diet on point? Getting your diet on point can mean going on a calorie deficit, picking healthier options, tracking your macros, staying hydrated, or tracking your eating habits.
When you start any fat burner, your results are only going to be as good as your efforts. Dieting doesn’t have to suck but unfortunately, you will have to maintain some restrictions. If you’re struggling with cravings you can try adding in more Garcinia Cambogia.
Exercise will be another important aspect of weight loss. So you’ll want to be sure you’re being consistent with working out, but changing up your routine when necessary.
It may seem like a no brainier, but a question we get often is whether or not you need to workout while on a fat burner. The answer of course is yes. A fat burner can be a great addition to your workout regimen but it won’t substitute it.
How to Take Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals HydroxyElite:
Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals recommends taking1-2 capsules in the morning and 1 capsule after lunch. Do not exceed 4 capsules of HydroxyElite daily.

- Bauhinia L. Extract

Where the Walnut Bark Extract would be the most similar in purpose to the Geranium Extract. This ingredient may add to the stimulatory properties in OxyElite, but there needs to be more research to clarify its usage in dietary supplements. † Overall, if you prefer a fat with a focus on energy, OxyELITE would be a great option to try.

HydroxyElite VS Oxy Xtreme:
Compared to HydroxyElite, Oxy Xtreme shares two ingredients:
- Caffeine Anhydrous
Unfortunately, the entirety of this formula falls within the proprietary blend. So we are not able to directly compare dosages. However, we can gather that this formula is also geared for promoting energy. Of the six ingredients in this formula, five are stimulants. The only ingredient left, is the Sceletium Tortuosum. This ingredient also known as Kanna can assist with promoting mood and well-being. (13,14)
Overall, Oxy Xtreme may be better for individuals looking for energy and focus/mood boosting properties.
