Hydroxycut Gummies Reviews
Hydroxycut is at it again!
Hydroxycut recently released yet another revamped version of its original Pro Clinical diet pill: Hydroxycut Gummies. Offering the same fat burning ingredients but in gummy form, Hydroxycut Gummies offer a flavorful new twist to a tired old formula.
But before you go buy the latest Hydroxycut product, chew on this:
After the FDA recall back in 2009, Hydroxycut products were reformulated to be ephedra free and have seen countless alterations since then. I’ve seen Pro Clinical Hydroxycut altered to be caffeine-free, crushed into an instant drink mix powder, and combined with popular superfruits to attract an ever-growing following of dieters and fitness enthusiasts.
Sometimes these rehashed formulas work. And sometimes they don’t.
Can Hydroxycut Gummies really offer the weight loss results you need in a price you can afford? Or is this just another gimmick to bring in more sales?
Let’s take a closer look at what Hydroxycut Gummies to find out the truth. . .

Hydroxycut Gummies’ ingredients are divided into two proprietary blends:
• Lady’s Mantle – an anti-inflammatory that promotes wound healing.
• Olive Extract – also an anti-inflammatory ingredient. It may lower blood pressure and cholesterol as well.
• Cumin Extract – acts as an anti-septic and anti-inflammatory. It may treat intestinal gas, bloating, and stomach pain.
• Wild Mint Extract – treats cold and flu symptoms such as coughs, indigestion, and headaches. It is believed to increase testosterone as well, but more research is needed to validate this claim.
The Research – Separately, these ingredients have little effect on weight loss. However, Hydroxycut does have one ace of a study up its proverbial sleeve.
In a double-blinded, randomized clinical study involving “Weighlevel,” 80 volunteers were given a blend of lady’s mantle, olive leaf, cumin, and wild mint or a placebo. All subjects were asked to continue their usual diet, with a few instructions on limiting food intake to 3 meals a day without snacks.
After 3 months, those who received the Weighlevel combination experienced progressive and significant weight loss during the whole study period. As an added bonus, the herbs did not result in any reported negative side effects. 
Of course, Weighlevel probably uses a different ingredient concentration than found in Hydroxycut products, but the principal is the same.
These four ingredients may not be the most effective fat burners in the industry, but they seem to be strong enough to get the job done (theoretically). Dieters have successfully used various combinations of these herbs for years now, and Hydroxycut products keep selling, so Hydroxycut Gummies may be off to a good start.
• Goji – a superfruit rich in antioxidants. It’s used to treat diabetes, high blood pressure, and age-related symptoms.
• Acerola – contains more than 150 nutritive constituents. Its antioxidants may protect against cellular damage.
• Blueberry – naturally rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fiber. It is believed to reduce eyestrain and combat aging.
• Pomegranate – full of antioxidants and vitamins. It contains enzymes known to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.
• Bilberry Extract – also rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and dietary fiber. Much like the blueberry, bilberry may improve eyesight.
The Research – As you can see, these fruits are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Although they can contribute to your overall health and immune system, there is little evidence to suggest that they are effective weight loss ingredients.
Look Out for the Sugar . . . Unlike other Hydroxycut products, Hydroxycut gummies contain 30 calories per serving and 3 grams of sugar. It’s sweetened with corn syrup and natural flavors to make it more palatable.
Safety Concerns and Side Effects
One of the biggest advantages to choosing Hydroxycut Gummies over other Hydroxycut products is that the formula is stimulant-free. Unlike other diet pills, Hydroxycut Gummies won’t leave you feeling jittery, nervous, or restless.
However, that doesn’t mean Hydroxycut Gummies is completely risk free. Each serving contains 160 mg of unknown ingredients. While this dosage is fairly small to be divided among so many ingredients, it’s possible that you could experience negative side effects anyway.
Cumin, for example, may cause nausea or diarrhea, while Goji may interact negatively with warfarin (a commonly prescribed blood thinner).
Consult your doctor before adding this supplement to your current regimen.
What About the Taste?
Currently Hydroxycut Gummies is only available in one flavor: mixed fruit.
Since this product is still fairly new, there are no consumer reviews that say whether or not this flavor is good or bad.
If you’ve tried Hydroxycut Gummies, you can help fill in the gaps by sharing your experience below.
How to Use Hydroxycut Gummies
Hydroxycut Gummies is easy to use. Simply take 1 serving (2 gummies) about 30 minutes before your three main meals. For better results, do not snack between meals or after dinner.
Additionally, it’s always a good idea to follow a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Be sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day.
Hydroxycut Gummies offer the best results when taken for 8 to 12 consecutive weeks, following with a 4 week break in between.
Do Not: As tempting as it would be to eat a whole bottle of gummy candy designed to help you lose weight, you should not take more than 2 gummies in a 4 hour period or 6 gummies in a 24 hour period.
Is Hydroxycut Gummies Expensive?
Hydroxycut Gummies sell for close to the same price as the rest of the Hydroxycut products at Hydroxycut.com: $24.99.
While the product is still fairly new, you can shop around online and find better deals and discounts. I was able to find Hydroxycut Gummies for the following prices:
• AllStarHealth.com: $14.99
• ProSource.net: $15.95
Consumers should note that this low-price is a bit deceptive. There are 60 gummies in a bottle, and if you take the recommended 6 gummies per day, then a single bottle will only last 10 days. $24.99, or even $15.95, every 10 days can be pretty pricey.

What if Hydroxycut Gummies Doesn’t Work?
As far as I can tell, Hydroxycut.com does not offer any money-back guarantee for any of its products. If it doesn’t work for you, you’re stuck with an expensive paperweight.
Who Makes Hydroxycut Gummies?
The Hydroxycut brand is manufactured by Muscletech and marketed by Iovate Health Sciences USA and is one of the most popular product lines in the weight loss industry.
According to the Better Business Bureau, Iovate Health Sciences received a B rating on a scale of A+ to F.
The main reason why it received a lower score is because the BBB “does not have sufficient background information on this business.”
However, only 4 complaints have been filed against the business in the last 3 years, and each of those complaints received a prompt, professional resolution. Considering how many products Hydroxycut sells each year and how many people rely on them for service, that’s an impressive track record.
Is It a Good Option?
Hydroxycut Gummies don’t seem like a bad way to lose weight. It’s stimulant-free and the ingredients are clinically proven – although because the Gummies’ proprietary blend does not disclose ingredient concentrations or dosages, I don’t know if it contains sufficient amounts of the clinically proven ingredients. Though the concentrations are a bit small, it follows the time-tested formula as the popular diet pill Pro Clinical Hydroxycut, but in a convenient to use gummy form.
I’m not a particular fan of Hydroxycut products due to their history with the FDA, but many consumers have successfully reached their goals while using other Hydroxycut products. I don’t see why Hydroxycut Gummies should be any different.
However, Hydroxycut Gummies is still new, and I’d love to have more information about what these gummies can really do and if they actually work. Feel free to discuss what you think about Hydroxycut Gummies in the comment section below.
