Thermo-Cuts Extreme is the stronger version of the Optimum Nutrition dietary supplement called Thermo Cuts. This nonprescription diet pill has a very similar (long) list of ingredients to its cousin, but also includes hydroxycitric acid (HCA) as an ingredient.

Not only are many reviewers already claiming that this product is simply another ineffective OTC diet pill, but it is also being compared to other supplements containing HCA which are being suspected of causing the side effects that have led the FDA to speak out against several different dietary supplements for weight loss.

FDA Warns About Using Certain Products

In May of 2009, the FDA released a statement that recommended that all users of Hydroxycut diet products should stop using them right away as they have a risk of liver-related side effects  that can be anywhere from mild to life-threatening.

Though Thermo-Cuts Extreme is not made by Hydroxycut (which recalled every one of their products), it does include the ingredient HCA which is suspected to be the culprit behind the many undesirable side effects that had been seen in the Hydroxycut products. These side effects include:

  • Jaundice
  • Light colored stools
  • Brown urine
  • Itching
  • Weakness
  • Stomach pain
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unusual fatigue
  • Other liver-related issues

Thermo-Cuts Extreme Ingredients

The Thermo-Cuts Extreme formula includes:

  • Chromium – An ingredient with conflicting clinical trial results
  • Garcinia Cambogia Extract – The source of the HCA
  • NeOptuna Extract
  • Caffeine Anhydrous – A fancy word for caffeine, a stimulant which can boost energy, though it does often lead to stimulant-related side effects such as sleeplessness, headaches, and jitters
  • Phase 2 Brand White Kidney Bean Extract – Can help with weight loss, but only in high concentrations, which is unlikely within the Thermo-Cuts Extreme formula
  • Green Tea Extract – Has the potential to be effective in very high doses that are unlikely within this pill
  • Promilin
  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid – CLA can contribute to weight loss when taken in high doses, but not in the lower doses of Thermo-Cuts Extreme
  • Grapefruit Peel Extract
  • Bioperine – Helps the body to absorb nutrients from food but has never been shown to help with weight loss
  • Vanadyl Sulfate

Other Things to Consider

Though it may look like an inexpensive product at $25.99 (at the time this Thermo-Cuts Extreme review was written) per 200 capsules, since you are required to take as many as 12 of those capsules every day, a single bottle will last only 16 days, requiring two bottles (and 400 capsules!) per month. This is neither inexpensive nor realistic considering that the ingredients do not show promise for being very effective at assisting with weight loss.

The bottom line is that due to a lack of evidence about the safety and efficacy of these ingredients and the fact that it contains HCA, it would probably best to avoid taking Thermo-Cuts Extreme.

Thermo-Cuts Extreme Update – June 2020

Thermo-Cuts Extreme is no longer available for purchase. Optimum Nutrition is still in existence and continues to sell weight management aids. However, Thermo-Cuts Extreme is not a part of the products it sells. This is most certainly for the better considering the formula contained a number of unproven ingredients as well as far too many in order for them to have the potential to be beneficial to the user.

Avoid Diet Pills with Too Many Ingredients

It is important to check out the ingredients in any diet pill formula you are considering purchasing and (more importantly) ingesting. It is not only imperative to make sure you are not allergic to any of the substances, but also to investigate the quantities of these substances and what potential benefits these ingredients can provide based on clinical research that has been conducted on them.

As a general rule, it’s typically best to avoid products like Thermo-Cuts Extreme that have a long list of ingredients (inside or outside of a blend). The reason isn’t only because this could mean the potential for a wider range of unwanted side effects, but also because, typically, the more ingredients a formula has, the less likely they are to offer you any real benefits as there won’t be enough of each ingredient included in the formula for it to make any difference to your weight loss efforts. It’s far better to spend your money on products that are actually worth your time.

Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free is one of the many products in the famous Hydroxycut line. These supplements for weight loss are often advertised and the brand is continually releasing new formulas. This particular version is a type that is 100 percent free of caffeine, though it does not specify whether or not that means that it is stimulant free as well.

At $30 per bottle, this is actually among the cheaper over the counter supplements on the weight loss market. However, whether or not this has any value depends on the effectiveness of the product and the number of days that one bottle will last. It is important to take a closer look at the ingredients list before deciding to take Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free.

Among the ingredients in the long list that makes up Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free are: vitamin C, lady’s mantle extract, wild olive extract, komjin extract, wild mint extract, goji extract, pomegranate, bilberry extract and a number of others both active and inactive.

The design of Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free is said to be “rapid release”, leading the dieter to be able to experience the benefits very quickly after swallowing the pill. The marketing states that there is no caffeine in the pill, which makes it more appealing to individuals who experience jitters, anxiety, and insomnia from having taken that substance.

According to the manufacturer, Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free functions by helping to reduce your body mass index when it is taken three times every day along with water (two pills at a time), for a total of six pills per day. It also recommends that the formula be taken for 8 to 12 consecutive weeks for the best results. The directions also encourage dieters to drink 8 to 10 glasses of water every day while taking this product. This is likely to reduce the risk of dehydration.

Unfortunately, at the time of this review, the ingredients list for Hydroxycut Pro Clinical Caffeine Free was not explained by the manufacturer in order to indicate what of the ingredients is supposed to provide a dieter in terms of benefits. There are some warnings that are applied to this product, including a suggestion that pregnant or nursing women and individuals under the age of 18 not take this product. It is also not appropriate for people with certain health conditions to take these pills, so it is recommended that anyone considering taking it should first speak with their doctors.
