We’re always keen to learn about the latest supplements, so we were intrigued to find out more about Hydroxycut LeanX Next Gen, a new non-stimulant supplement by MuscleTech.

This product claims to help you achieve your goals with a “scientifically studied” formula.

It contains a number of different ingredients to help support you on your journey.

But is this product all it’s cracked up to be and does it live up to the marketing hype?

Let’s take a close look at Hydroxycut LeanX to determine whether this is a product you should consider taking or not.

What does Hydroxycut LeanX do?

As mentioned above. Hydroxycut LeanX is a non-stimulant supplement designed to help support your goals on your journey.

We should point out at this stage that there is no ‘magic pill’ when it comes to your body. You’ll have to make sure that you’re training hard and eating right first before thinking about any kind of supplementation.

LeanX contains a number of different ingredients to help achieve its effects and support you on your journey.

Because it doesn’t use any stimulants, you’re probably not going to get an energy boost from using this product, but that also means no side effects from Caffeine, which is a commonly used ingredient in products like this.

What you need to know about the ingredients

Let’s kick this section off by taking a close look at the ingredients label.

Hydroxycut LeanX ingredients

As you can see, this product uses quite a lot of different ingredients to help support your goals.

The first good thing is that it doesn’t use a proprietary blend, meaning that we know the exact doses of the ingredients used in the product.

Here are the top ingredients in LeanX:

• Cayenne Pepper – This is one of our favorite ingredients and you’ll find it in many of the similar supplements out there right now. We are always pleased to find it in products like this. The sad truth, though, is that LeanX only contains 5mg per serving, which is nowhere near enough in our opinion.

• Robusta Coffee Bean Extract – This is essentially the same thing as Green Coffee Bean Extract, which is rich in a substance called Chlorogenic Acid. We are big fans of this ingredient and were pleased to find it on the label.

• Black Pepper Extract – This is not technically a primary ingredient but it’s still something we like to see in a supplement. Most of the leading products in this category contain at least some Black Pepper Extract.

• Acetyl L-Carnitine HCI – This is a compound L-Carnitine that is involved in some bodily processes. We do like this ingredient but we associate it more with a good pre workout supplement. It’s a widely researched amino acid – but we’re not sure about why it’s been included in this particular supplement.

• Rhodiola Extract – Again, are MuscleTech trying to make a pre workout here? Rhodiola Rosea is a top pre workout ingredient but we’re not sure about its use in a supplement like this. It’s a herbal extract which has a history of use in traditional Chinese medicine.

What’s missing?

There are quite a lot of our favorite ingredients missing from Hydroxycut LeanX Next Gen.

We’re going to ignore Caffeine because this is marketed as a non-stimulant supplement.

Firstly, it was a shame not to find any Green Tea Extract in this product. It’s one of the most popular ingredients and you’ll usually find some in the top products in this category.

It was also disappointing not to find any Glucomannan on the label. This is a dietary fiber which comes from the root of the Konjac plant.

Although LeanX does use some Cayenne Pepper, 5mg per serving is nowhere near enough for it to have a significant effect in our opinion.

Are there any side effects?

The main thing to bear in mind when it comes to supplements like this is the stimulant content. We all know that Caffeine can cause unwanted side effects if taken in too high of a dose.

Because LeanX doesn’t contain any stimulants, this isn’t going to be a problem in this case.

We always recommend taking a close look at the ingredients label before taking a product for the first time, to make sure that you’re not allergic to any of the ingredients.

We also always strongly suggest speaking to your doctor before thinking about taking any new supplement for the first time.

How to take Hydroxycut LeanX

Each bottle of LeanX contains 90 capsules, which equates to 45 servings.

The directions say that you should take one serving (2 capsules) twice daily, 30 to 60 minutes before your two largest meals.

That means that if you stick to the maximum recommended dose, one bottle will last you for around 22 days.

There is a warning on the label saying not to take more than four capsules within a 24-hour period.

What are customers saying?

Because this is a very new product, we couldn’t find too many reviews of it online and on social media.

We guess that the customer reviews will start flooding in after it has begun to pick up some traction.

There was one customer on bodybuilding.com who said that it was a great non-stim supplement option that helped them.

Is this the best supplement?

Not for us.

This product contains a range of interesting ingredients but too few of them have been proven to have real benefits in our opinion.

The fact that it’s under-dosed when it comes to Cayenne Pepper is also a disappointment.

The good news, though, is that it doesn’t use a proprietary blend to hide the doses of any of the ingredients.

Anything else to consider?

We’ve said this before, but we’ll say it again.

It’s crucial that you remember that the first steps you should take if you’re looking to make a change are to make sure that your training regime and diet are on point.

These two things will be the building blocks of your success and you’re unlikely to have much luck unless you get them sorted first.

That being said, if you’re training hard and eating right, then a good quality supplement can help to support you on your journey.

Review conclusion – our final thoughts

That concludes our review of Hydroxycut LeanX.

This is not a product we would take ourselves, because it’s missing most of our favorite ingredients – and some of the substances used are clearly under-dosed.
