Hot-Rox Extreme Review
We’ve updated this review as Biotest now has a new version of Hot-Rox, Hot-Rox Extreme. They’ve added three new thermogenic ingredients to their original formula: yohimbine, carbolin 19, and raspberry. They say that with this new formula you’ll be “shocked by Extreme’s ability to melt off body fat and by its incredible feel-good factor.”
Hot-Rox Extreme’s key ingredient continues to be A7-E, an ingredient that seems to be unknown to the diet pill world, except by Biotest. It’s not backed by any clinical research (aside from their “testing”), and they do little to explain what the ingredient actually is. Interesting.
This Hot-Rox Extreme review will look into their ingredient profile to see what Hot-Rox really has to offer in terms of weight loss.
Hot-Rox Extreme’s Ingredients
A7-E - As mentioned previously, A7-E is somewhat as a mystery in terms of what it really is. Hot-Rox provides a sales pitch on how it will help you melt off the pounds, but does little to explain what the ingredient actually is (what it contains). It reportedly burns fat by increasing your metabolism and stimulates the thermogenic processes. They claim that it “burns fat five times faster than diet and exercise alone.” The only research done on the ingredient is Biotest themselves. For obvious reasons we don’t put much stock in clinical research that is performed by the makers and sellers of the product. The testing and results are obviously biased.
Carbolin 19 - Carbolin 19 is essentially forskolin. Forskolin is actually a good ingredient that is backed by some legit research that says that it aids in weight loss. Most of that research, however, uses 250 mg a day or more in their studies. Hot-Rox Extreme doesn’t disclose how much of each ingredient is included, and hence we have no way of knowing if it contains enough Forskolin to make a difference or not. My guess is that it doesn’t.
Piperine – Some believe that it aids in nutrient absorption.
Yohimbine HCL – Has been shown in some studies to increase fatty acid mobilization.
Caffeine – Another one of the few ingredients that has been proven to aid in weight loss in many, many studies. Its known to increase energy levels dramitacally, having an large impact during exercise. Being that Hot-Rox doesn’t disclose the amounts of the ingredient, I don’t know if there is enough to make a difference or not.
Raspberry – Some claim that it aids in weight loss. Research isn’t clear as of yet.
Hot-Rox Extreme’s Marketing
Marketed toward the “hardcore” crowd, Hot-Rox Extreme claims to not be for the light-hearted. They are definitley trying to appear as a more potent diet pill. Its ingredient profile, however, isn’t clear enough to confirm that these claims are true. The website has no flashy before and after photos and no testimonials, which was actually refreshing. There is a focus on the ingredients, which we like. (We just wish they would tell us more about their key ingredient A7-E).
Some of their marketing is a bit hyped up. One of our favorites, touching on its “feel-goodness” said: “It’s like taking a happy pill that makes fat disappear!”
Hot-Rox Extreme’s Price
$44.95 for one bottle is pretty middle of road for diet pills.
Hot-Rox Extreme’s Guarantee
They offer a 100% money back guarantee on all first time orders within 90 days. You can only return the unopened bottles.
With its main ingredient being somewhat of a mystery, Hot-Rox Extreme is a little shady in my book. It’s not backed by any independent research, which makes us very doubtful that it is worth any of your money. In addition, they don’t disclose how much of each ingredient is included in the pill. We say look for a diet pill that fully discloses their amounts and has only (or at least mostly) proven ingredients.
