There’s a good chance this isn’t the first time you’ve heard the name Hydroxycut. It seems like every year there is a reformulation or a new version of Hydroxycut trying to fight its way into the weight-loss supplement spotlight.

The latest version is called Hydroxycut SX7, and features some of the more popular ingredients being put into the latest weight loss supplements.

Hydroxycut SX7 Sensory Experience

MuscleTech is promoting SX7 as a fat burner that also creates a unique sensory experience. This sensory experience appears to be caused by the ingredients myristica fragrans and salvia officinalis. These two ingredients work synergistically to improve mood and produce a greater overall sense of well-being.

By focusing on overall mood enhancement in addition to fat burning, my guess is MuscleTech is trying to remove the stigma associated with a lot of fat burners and weight loss products that they cause a jittery effect.

What’s more, Hydroxycut SX7 is fairly low in caffeine, containing only 135 mg per serving. This is nice because it allows you to assess your tolerance with the minimal dose and not have to worry about feeling jittery from just one serving.

Popular Fat Burning Ingredients

Two of the popular weight loss ingredients you’ll find in Hydroxycut SX7 are rapsberry ketones and green coffee bean extract. These have both been featured on shows like Dr. Oz, and only continue to rise in popularity.

Green coffee bean extract is a proven ingredient, with studies showing it improves weight loss in patients following a reduced calorie diet and performing exercise.[1] Raspberry ketone studies conducted on mice show many promising benefits including the ability to free up additional fatty acids to be burned as energy.[2]

Price and Availability

Right now, Hydroxycut SX7 is only available as a GNC exclusive. The 70 capsule version is available for $59.99, and the 140 capsule version is priced at $99.99.

Is Hydroxycut SX7 An Effective Fat Burner?

The nice thing about Hydroxycut SX7 is it does feature well-researched ingredients such as green coffee bean extract and raspberry ketones. However, it’s important to keep in mind that there’s no such thing as a miracle pill.

Ultimately, diet and exercise are going to play the most important role in the results you get from taking Hydroxycut SX7.
