Cellucor Super HD Review

Cellucor Super HD fat burnerCellucor Super HD is a fat burning supplement produced in the USA by Cellucor. “If you’re looking for your standard, traditional fat-burner, Super HD isn’t it,” says Cellucor.

What’s so different about Super HD? Apparently it’s the ‘feel good’ weight-loss product, but some customers complain using the product left them feeling bad rather.

Other customers rate the blend highly though, and Bodybuilding.com named Super HD their fat loss supplement of the year in 2012; so the product has received a mixed reception.

Cellucor Super HD was voted the best fat loss supplement of the for 2012

Advertised Benefits

  • High-powered energy
  • Helps promote fat loss
  • Increases fat metabolism
  • Better appetite Control

How it Works

Super HDCellucor claims fat burning is achieved via the process of ‘stimulant thermogenics’ induced when the stimulants get to work on the central nervous system, speed up the metabolism and causes thermogenic fat burning to occur.

Meanwhile, enhanced mental abilities (concentration, focus, etc.) are provided by the blend’s “powerful nootropics”.

Recommended Usage

Capsules are taken twice a day on an empty stomach. The first capsule should be taken on the morning. The second capsule is taken five to six hours later. A few days should be allowed to check for tolerance issues after which the first dose of the day can be increased to two capsules, but no more than three capsules should be taken in any 24 hour period. Drinking plenty of water is recommended and supplementation should be stopped for four weeks after every eight week period of use.

Key Ingredients

Most of the ingredients are hidden in proprietary blends, so quantities are not supplied, but Inclusion rates for the first three ingredients are available and all three are believed to promote a healthy metabolism.

  • Niacin (10mg)
  • Vitamim B6 (3mg)
  • Vitamin B12 (250mcg)

Super HD Nootropic & CNSS Support Blend

Inclusion rates are provided for the proprietary blend ingredients, but it is not known how much of the blend is incorporated into the main formulation so the information is useless.

  • Caffeine Anhydrous (160mg): Powdered caffeine to provide extra energy and focus.
  • N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine (150): An amino acid that may improve mental focus.
  • Toothed Clubmoss (2.5MG): Useful or treating memory disorders if the Chinese herbalists are to be believed.

Super HD Thermosculpting Blend (253mg)

  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
  • Tuber Fleece Flower Root Extract
  • Chinese Mistletoe Stem
  • Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract
  • Amla Fruit Extract
  • Dandelion Root Extract
  • Pausinystalia
  • Yohimbine Extract
  • Red Pepper Fruit
  • Evodiamine
  • Rauwolfia Extract

Supposedly the fat burning blend, but red pepper is the only ingredient with any credibility. Dandelion root offers zero fat burning potential but its diuretic abilities may results in customers mistaking fluid loss for fat loss. Yohimbine is a worrying inclusion because it can cause nasty side effects.

B Vitamin Blend (15.25)

  • Niacinamide
  • Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate
  • Cyanocobalamin
  • Methylcobalamin
  • CoEnzyme B12

Customer Feedback

Plenty of independent feedback is available and claims of nasty side effects have resulted in plenty of one star ratings such as the two below.

This stuff is terrible and made me throw up all night. UGhhh….don’t take this at all and definitely don’t take with very much food if your so inclined to get sick anyway…Nasty Stuff”

“The three times ive tried only one pill i have panic attacks that last hours. It is terrible and unusable for me. Others obviously dont have this problem but for me this product does nothing other than make me feel terrible for 3-5 hours.”

Many users either love the product or are willing to live with the potential for side effects:

“This product is the best one I’ve tried, and I’ve tried many!! It really helps not only with your appetite but with your energy level also. I highly recommend this product.

It really works. Lost 5 lbs. but keeps you awake few hours after you take it.. Plan to take this supplement atleast 6 hours before you go to sleep.”

“I just took one for the first time and it’s true that for energy it is definitely and A+++++++. Warning for those with anxiety: DO NOT TAKE THESE. IT WILL FREAK YOU OUT.”

Side Effects & Other Considerations

Cellucor warns that pregnant and nursing mothers should not use Super HD. They also list several medical disorders that may be aggravated by its use and state problems can arise if the formulation is used alongside certain medications. With so many past customers complaining about side effects it would be wise for all potential Super HD users seek medical advice prior to use.

The Bottom Line

Cellucor is a well-established and respected brand, and Super HD appears to be one of their most popular products. Many customers rate it highly and it is also a former Bodybuilding.com fat loss supplement of the year. Taking all this on board there can be little doubt that Super HD has the potential to burn fat, but customer feedback also suggests use of the product may also entail significant side effects.This is unacceptable. Many competing products can provide similar benefits without the inherent risk to the health so choosing a safer alternative is highly recommended.

Purchasing Options & Considerations

Cellucor offer worldwide shipping and a 30 day money back guarantee applies to all purchase made from the official site. Cellucor products are also available from many online stores and Amazon provides an additional option, but customers who choose to go this route forsake their right to a guarantee. Amazon’s price for Cellucor Super HD? Often less than $25, which isn’t too bad at all, but the Cellucor website price is $50 so if customers really want money back guarantee to fall back on they are going to be paying double bubble for the privilege.
