What’s the difference between the old MuscleTech Hydroyxycut Hardcore and the new Hydroxycut Hardcore Pro Series? Science Review: The new Hydroxycut Hardcore Pro-Series represents the next generation in fat loss supplementation. This completely re-engineered formulation leads the way in thermogenic sports nutrition. Previously, fat loss supplements emphasised fat burning and appetite suppression. The goal of sustaining muscle mass was all but ignored in this regard, until now. The key ingredient in this new product is ‘Lipidrol,’ MuscleTech’s proprietary muscle maintenance formulation. The amino acids L-tyrosine, L-leucine, L-carnosine & L-arginine as well as potent muscle building acids such as trans-ferulic & myristic are all constituents of this new product. These will assist you in stripping away body fat, whilst maintaining and highlighting the muscle you have worked so hard to develop. The Hydroxycut Hardcore Pro Series formula includes a powerful primary ingredient that has been shown to accelerate metabolism and increase energy. This supplement has been shown to increase norepinephrine by up to an average of 92%. This is one of your body’s most important fat loss hormones, promoting an increase in the breakdown of fat, as well as an increase in blood flow to the muscle (1). These potent thermogenic ingredients are contained within rapid release liquid micro dispersion capsules to facilitate ease of use and optimal transportation. Other ingredients in this formula include: Thermogenic Ingredients:Caffeine achieves prolonged stimulation of increased norepinephrine release and the thermogenic fat burning process (2). L-methionine, a powerful antioxidant, which assists in the breakdown of fats, and helps inactivate free radicals. Choline Bitartrate is vital to the structural integrity of cell walls, the production of amino acids and proteins and the metabolism of fats. MCT (Medium-Chain Triglyceride) Oil has been shown to increase the metabolic rate (3). Betaine HCL is a non-essential nutrient and a source of hydrochloric acid, a naturally occurring chemical in the stomach that breaks down fats and proteins. It is necessary for the metabolising (absorption) of protein, calcium, vitamin B12, and iron. L-tyrosine helps the brain to produce adequate amounts of norepinephrine, as discussed above. Muscle Sustaining Ingredients: L-Proline is essential both to skin health, and for the creation of healthy connective tissues and also muscular tissue maintenance. L-leucine helps promote muscle recovery. This amino acid also has a positive effect on protein synthesis (4). Trans-ferulic acid and L-carnosine have antioxidant properties which will assist cells from free radical damage. L-arginine pyroglutamate is an excellent growth hormone releaser because it is carried more efficiently across the blood-brain barrier than arginine alone.
CONCLUSION: Hydroxycut Hardcore Pro Series represents a ground breaking innovation in fat loss supplementation. Never before has a supplement been offered of this calibre that also supports muscle maintenance. The result is a supplement that will not only help you strip away fat, but also sustain the underlying muscle that you’ve worked so hard to develop.
