How Does it Compare To OxyElite Pro?

oxyelite pro label

OxyElite Pro contained a proprietary blend consisting of 119.5mg of active ingredients. Then an additional 100mg for caffeine. Compared to HydroxyElite’s 519.5mg of active ingredients, OxyElite falls short.

The label:

  • Bauhinia Purpurea L. (Leaf and Pod) Extractcheck
  • Bacopa (Leaf) (Bacopa Monnieri) extracthydroxyelite oxyelite check
  • 1,3-Dimethylamylamine HCL
  • Cirsium Oligophyllum (Plant) Extractcheck
  • Yohimbe (Pausinystalia Johimbe) Bark Extract check
  • Caffeine check

As you can see, we’ve already checked off the ingredients shared between them. The ONLY ingredient in OxyElite Pro that HydroxyElite does not have is DMAA.

Why Doesn’t HydroxyElite Contain DMAA?

Back in October 2017, the FDA stopped Hi-Tech Pharma from manufacturing with DMAA. The ability to manufacture with DMAA has been in court ever since. So for now, HydroxyElite doesn’t contain DMAA. Since the new formula, we have received hundreds of positive feedback. In fact, HydroxyElite remains the top-selling fat burner. But if you’re still unsure if HydroxyElite is right for you, just look at our customer reviews.
Instead of DMAA

HydroxyElite contains 2-Aminoisoheptane. This is a DMAA-like stimulant that goes by several names. In fact, DMAA and 2-aminoisoheptane actually work in the same fashion. It is naturally found in Walnut Bark extract or the bark from the Juglans Regia tree.Can women take it

Can Women Take It?

Absolutely! HydroxyElite is not gender-specific. Both Men & Women can take HydroxyElite. Exception: Women who are pregnant or nursing should not take any fat burners.

HydroxyElite VS Lipodrene? Which is better?

All fat burners have different ingredient profiles that make them good for someone. It’s important to remember that everyone will have a different experience and results. With that said, based on the label:
Lipodrene has a stronger stimulant profile than HydroxyElite. But HydroxyElite has a better appetite suppressant profile.
So if you’re looking for a fat burner that’s more energy based? Try Lipodrene. But if you want a fat burner to help with your appetite? Try HydroxyElite.

Can I take it with a pre-workout or other stimulants?

Although HydroxyElite is not a heavy stimulant fat burner, you should assess your tolerance to it. We wouldn’t recommend taking it along with a pre workout. Too many stimulants can cause undesirable side effects. Such that includes but is not limited to:
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability

Should I cycle it?

The longer you take caffeine and other stimulants, the more your body becomes desensitized. To avoid this, you should take at least 2 weeks off fat burners before starting a new bottle.

What can I take in between cycles?

Luckily, there are a ton of non-stimulant fat burners and weight loss supplements that you can take when you’re off-cycle. But, more current research is needed to establish the effectiveness of these supplements.

CLA: Conjugated Linoleic Acid

CLA is a fatty acid in dairy products and some meat products too. In terms of weight loss, studies indicate CLA  for 12 weeks could reduce body fat in overweight adults. AND help prevent weight gain. (1,2)


Carnitine is a derivative of amino acids. It’s found in almost every cell in the body. But what makes it useful for fat loss is that it helps promote transportation of fatty acids. During this transportation the fatty acids are oxidized and able to be used for energy. (3)

Garcinia Cambogia:

Garcinia Cambogia Extract is potent for Hydroxy Citric Acid or HCA. HCA not only helps with appetite suppression, but also may inhibits fatty acid synthesis.(4)


Is there anything I can take with HydroxyElite to help with weight loss?

Yes! In fact, you can combine the products above with your HydroxyElite.

I haven’t lost weight; am I doing something wrong?

If you’re not getting the results you want, there are a couple of questions you have to ask yourself.


First things first, is your diet on point?  What we mean is, are you:

  • On a calorie deficit?
  • Eating “healthy” foods?
  • Tracking what you eat AND what you drink?
  • Are you hydrated ?
  • Are your eating habits okay?

When you start any fat burner, your results are only going to be as good as your efforts. Dieting doesn’t have to suck but unfortunately, you will have to maintain some restrictions. If you’re struggling with cravings you can try adding in more Garcina Cambogia.


  • Are you consistently following a workout regimen?
  • Are you changing up your routine?

It may seem like a no brainier, but a question we get often is whether or not you need to workout while on a fat burner. The answer of course is yes. A fat burner can be a great addition to your workout regimen but it won’t substitute it.

How to Take Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals HydroxyElite:

Take 1-2 capsules in the morning and 1 capsule after lunch. Do not exceed 4 capsules of HydroxyElite daily.

The label hydroxyelite


Let’s Look At The Label!

Now let’s breakdown the formula and figure out what makes HydroxyElite so good!

Like in most fat burners, HydroxyElite features an ingredient profile with:
  • Stimulants
  • Appetite Suppressants
  • Thermogenics
  • Mood/Focus

The Stimulants:

HydroxyElite isn’t a stimulant heavy fat burner. But all the stims in it play a role into each category above.  This includes Caffeine, 2-Aminoisoheptane, Rauwolscine, and Walnut Bark Extract.

Caffeine: How does it affect weight loss?

Caffeine is a great foundation stimulant. It’s the most common stimulant found in food and supplements.  Caffeine can aid in increasing your metabolism, energy, and suppress your appetite. (5)

2-Aminoisoheptane: How does it affect weight loss?

As we mentioned above, 2-Aminoisoheptane is a DMAA-like stimulant. But DMHA actually shares similar structures to 3 compounds:

  • DMAA
  • DMBA (AMP Citrate)
  • and tuaminoheptane (2-aminoheptane)

It will promote  mood-enhancing effects and help give a feeling of euphoria. Along with boosting your energy, and appetite suppression. (6)

Rauwolscine: How does it affect weight loss?

Rauwolscine is a diastereoisomers of Yohimbine. There are a couple of ways yohimbine functions. The main way is through blocking alpha-2 adrenergic receptors located in fat cells. Once yohimbine has bound with a fat cell, it “turns off” the alpha receptor. Which allows the fat cells to mobilize and burn off (7).

Walnut Bark Extract: How does it affect weight loss?

Besides being the source to some DMHA extracts, Walnuts may activate a brain region involved in appetite and impulse control.(8,9)

The Appetite Suppressants:

HydroxyElite’s contains 200mgs of Garcinia Cambogia Extract. This ingredient contains HCA which inhibits fatty acid synthesis in the body. In addition to this, all the stimulants will have some appetite suppression properties. (4)


In terms of weight loss, thermogenic promotes an increase your metabolism. This is done by helping your body burn more calories. When you’re body is burning calories, it generates more heat. There are 5 ingredients that aid in thermogenesis:

  • 2-Aminoisoheptane
  • Rauwolscine
  • Bauhinia Purpurea
  • Walnut Bark Extract
  • Cirsium oligophyllum
Bauhinia Purpurea: How does it affect weight loss?

Bauhinia Purpurea is a thyroid booster that helps converts your thyroid hormones into a more beneficial ratio.(10)

Which could result in improvements in:

  • Your metabolism
  • Thermogenesis
  • Overall fat loss
  • Mood
Cirsium oligophyllum: How does it affect weight loss?

There are two main effects from circium, the first of which is most important:(10,11)

  1. It helps you burn body fat by exciting the beta-adrenergic receptor.
  2. It boosts the themogenesis by increasing the action of uncoupling protein 1 (UCP1)


Lastly, we have the Bacopa monnieri; which is typically used as a brain-enhancer.

Bacopa monnieri: How does it affect weight loss?

Bacopa Monnieri may promote the reduction in anxiety and improve memory formation. (12)

  • Review By Crystal

Only been on Hydroxy Elite for 5 days and so far i can say the amount of energy it gives you is awesome. The formula is still strong but that’s what i like about this product. Don’t know if it’s helped me with losing weight yet but I will update at a later time. I can also say it definitely helped with suppressing my appetite. I have to remind myself to eat.

  • Review By Kevin

I bought this product a week ago and it has been great so far . In 7 – 8 days using the product I have lost almost 5lbs. I have noticed that my hunger & cravings have been greatly reduced. I usually take one Pill in the morning & one pill at night. It might still be too early to tell whether this product if effective for an extended period of time but so far it has worked as advertised . Definitely a great alternative to the discontinued OXYElite Pro. Give this product a try ! (Posted on 5/7/2019)

  • It’s great, bursts of energy in middle of day Review by CarrieI

love this stuff!! I have had a couple bottles of it so far and there are a couple
Things I’ve learned. If you take two, take one early and another at like 1pm. I swear the energy can hit you at random times later on. Also, I’ll have a bowl of soup or something to snack on later and I feel like I am igniting the fuel! My friend who takes these also agrees.

So definitely take them early. I love how much it makes me focus IF I use it. Just get up and make sure to start something, and all of a sudden I am into doing all the laundry and cleaning for that day. You can use them for more than just working out. My boyfriend has used them to hike but I tell him to take it, wait 45 minutes and then go! Make sure to drink plenty of water with them and you will see weight loss!
