Important Side Effects of Hydroxycut You Should Know

by Glenn Reschke

What are the side effects of the well know product Hydroxycut? We'll explore that in a moment.

Before we do so, however, you should know that many of the health risks associated with Hydroxycut have been minimized as hydroxycut no longer has ephedra in it.

Ephedra has been banned in the U.S. by the FDA.

According to a study released in The New England Journal of Medicine,

"The use of ephedra-containing compounds was linked to a number of serious events, including high blood pressure, rapid heart rate, stroke, seizure, and even death."

While industry representatives downplayed the comments by the FDA saying that the study from which the FDA based its decision was not founded upon "sound science", the FDA countered saying the sweeping advisory was simply to make clear that the risk to consumers was an unnecessary health hazard. 

So, is the new ephedra-free Hydroxycut completely safe? No. The new Hydroxycut ephedra free is much safer, but it still has some side effects.

The documented Hydroxycut side effects are:

  1. Increased blood pressure
  2. Nose bleeds
  3. Blurred vision
  4. Acne outbreak
  5. Restlessness & hyperactivity
  6. Loss of appetite
  7. Increased heart rate
  8. Headaches
  9. Lightheadedness
  10. Dizziness
  11. Insomnia
  12. Nausea and upset stomach

Bear in mind these are just some of the side effects of the well-received Hydroxycut. This list is not exhaustive but is comprised of those symptoms most indicative of Hydroxycut side effect reports.

Some users of Hydroxycut will experience many of these side effects, while others will experience literally nothing.

Still some others will experience a few but bear them as the benefits of Hydroxycut are substantial enough to merit the inconvenience.

An Important Point. Keep in mind Hydroxycut still contains caffeine, which has its own side effects including varicose vein development, it's addictive, it leaves a bitter aftertaste, it stimulates the heart to beat excessively, and it can stimulate hyperactivity and the jitters.

If you decide to take Ephedra Free Hydroxycut, bear in mind the following: exercise your common sense while you exercise your body!


The benefits of Hydroxycut will be heightened if you combine it with aerobic and anaerobic exercise, otherwise there's no reason to take it.

Remember, it is a supplement designed to optimize aerobic activity designed to accelerate fat loss. Next, if the side effects are such that you're troubled by it, I recommend reducing the dosage. If that's not satisfactory, you should discontinue using it.


Does Hydroxycut work? Yes it does, but it's been recalled. Hydroxycut is by far one of the most effective, popular weight loss supplements on the market today. The new ephedra-free Hydroxycut product, while not as effective as its predecessor, is still a fantastic fat loss or weight loss product.

What should you do?

The surest way to weight loss is a rigorous training regime and attention to diet. Supplement slike Hydroxycut can help facilitate fat loss but they should be thought of as an aid -- not the sole tool.

By running twice a week 4 to 5 miles and just watching my diet in a marginal way, I lost 20 pounds.

I say it again, strenuous aerobic workouts with weight training and a fiber-rich diet devoid of excessive processed foods is a great combination for weight loss.

We live in a fast-food culture where people expect instant results. People look for shortcuts in almost everything and health matters is no exception. Ben Franklin was right when he said, "He who has patience can have what he will."

I also like the quote by Edmund Burke, the former prime minister of England, "Our patience will accomplish more than our force."

Both were right.

Hydroxycut clearly does have side effects for some, and that is its caveat, but its combination of guarana herb, l-carnitine, Chromium picolinate, and green tea leaf extract give it a powerhouse effect.

I hope this article has been useful to you.

Yours in health,
