According to Hydroxycut, their newest product, Hydroxycut Sprinkles, is a great way to achieve “weight loss on the go!”
Hydroxycut promises the Sprinkles are “a fun way to lose weight as part of your diet and exercise plan.” They also say, “With Hydroxycut Sprinkles in your active lifestyle, you can achieve your weight loss goals” by simply adding the product to every meal.
Will Hydroxycut Sprinkles actually make weight loss effortless? Let’s take a closer look and find out.
Hydroxycut manufactures weight loss products. But Hydroxycut is owned by Iovate Health Sciences, Inc., which also owns the sports nutrition manufacturer MuscleTech. On its website, Iovate claims to produce “formulas based on key ingredients with sound, scientific support and produced with total commitment to product quality and excellence.”
However, in the past, Hydroxycut has not lived up to these high standards. In 2003 the company was sued for concealing negative test results. The incriminating research revealed that Hydroxycut products caused liver failure, seizures, and severe cardiovascular problems.
Following a Hydroxycut-related death, the FDA issued a complete recall of the company’s entire product line. Since then, Hydroxycut has revamped all its products and formulas, relying primarily on all-natural extracts.
The Hydroxycut Sprinkles Formula
Hydroxycut Sprinkles contain only 1 ingredient: the blend Hydroxyprovia. Hydroxyprovia contains the following extracts:
• Lady’s mantle leaf
• Wild olive leaf
• Komijn seed
• Wild mint leaf
This blend is clinically proven to detoxify the body, increase thermogenesis, and speed metabolism .
Because Hydroxyprovia is backed by science, it is an impressive ingredient blend. However, the Hydroxycut Sprinkles supplement facts show that the product contains 155 mg. In the blend’s clinical trial, subjects experienced weight loss when they took 310 mg. This suggests that 155 mg isn’t going to have an effect on your weight, unfortunately.
Additionally, Hydroxyprovia was clinically tested in pill form. This allowed researchers to regulate the exact amount their subjects took in. Hydroxycut Sprinkles’ unique form presents a problem because users don’t have complete control over each dosage.
How to Use
Hydroxycut.com says, “Sprinkle 1 packet of Hydroxycut Sprinkles evenly over the surface of your breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and mix if possible. Consume entire serving of Hydroxycut Sprinkles at each meal.”
The site also says users will see best results if they eat healthily, exercise regularly, avoid snacking, and drink 8-10 glasses of water every day.
The most foolproof way to find out if a product works is to read testimonials from actual users. Let’s see what these customers told DietPills.org about their experiences:
Amber K: “I just started using it last night but I don’t feel tired and I have yet to have any cravings and I haven’t noticed any side effects.”
Bonita: “I just started using Hydroxycut Sprinkles. They smell awful and taste bad. I tried to mix it in my food to cover up the taste, I could still taste it. So far I have not lost any weight. I have used this product for about 3 weeks now.”
DEBnAZ: “Product has a slight odor but no aftertaste in foods such as soup or my fruit smoothie but my salad was tough getting through…I am on day 2 and I have no cravings. I am using a balanced diet with exercise for this 90 days. My advice is to use only on foods that can hide the taste.”
Maxine: “I’m extremely disappointed by the fact that I sprinkled it on my bagel and it tasted like I put cayenne pepper on it! I think it’s a rip off but I could not get past that taste so I wouldn’t really know. It wasn’t just a taste like it burned my whole throat and nose and it stayed like that for like 15-20 min. Terrible!”
How to Buy
Hydroxycut Sprinkles can be purchased online. Hydoxycut.com sells a 1-month supply (90 packets) for $24.99. eSupplements.com sells the same quantity for $14.99.
The Final Verdict
Hydroxycut Sprinkles certainly catch the eye with a unique approach to weight loss but don’t seem to be effective.
The formula is initially impressive, but its low dosage and unpredictable consistency are disappointing. Additionally, customer response is generally negative.
This probably isn’t the right product for you if you’re looking for dramatic results.
