Hypercuts has been reformulated to remove the banned ingredient DMAA, and has changed several other ingredients as well. But, is this new formula safe, and does it work?

We take a look to find out below.

Hypercuts Pros

  • Positive customer reviews
  • Seems to aid weight loss

Hypercuts Cons

How to Take Hypercuts

Take one capsule per day, ideally before 4pm, in order to minimise disruption to sleeping patterns.

The capsule should be taken with food.

We would recommend the capsule is taken in the morning for maximum effect through the day. This will boost energy levels throughout the day, and should help to prevent sleeping troubles.

Hypercuts Concerns:

  • Significant number of stimulants
  • Under-researched ingredients
  • Serious potential side effects

What Does Hypercuts Claim To Do?

According to the manufacturer, Hypercuts offers several benefits to users.

Hypercuts is a cutting edge thermogenic designed to rev up your metabolism, burn fat, supply endless energy and extreme focus.

The website also mentions that,

Hypercuts contains ingredients that have been shown to support weight loss, increase energy and suppress appetite.

So What Is Hypercuts and What Are The Ingredients For Hypercuts?

Hypercuts has numerous ingredients, listed as a proprietary formula. Each serving of one capsule contains 431 mg of the proprietary formula, but no individual ingredient quantities are provided.

  • 2-Amino-4-Methylpentane Citrate: Also known as AMP citrate, this is a new substitute for Dimethylamylamine (DMAA), which is widely banned internationally. It currently appears to have few side effects associated with its use, but as it is a new product, there could be side effects that are as yet unknown. There is also a lack of clinical evidence to prove that this product is safe or effective. It is a stimulant, much like the DMAA it is designed to replace, and so may boost the metabolism.
  • Caffeine: Numerous studies have shown that caffeine boosts energy levels and alertness, as well as mildly boosting the metabolism, causing a small increase in the number of calories used by the body. The effects shown in studies are small, and some studies are inconclusive.
  • Higenamine HCl: Another stimulant product that is fairly new to the diet pills market, Higenamine is a chemical found in several different plants. It has not been extensively studied in humans, for weight loss purposes or other treatments, and its safety is questionable because of this lack of research.
  • Naringin: A compound found in grapefruits that accounts for its bitter taste, it is known to extend the amount of time that caffeine remains in the body. This would make the effects of caffeine also last longer, potentially making the ingredients of 4Ever Burn more potent. Research also suggests that Naringin enhances lipid (fat) metabolism in the body, which again could have positive implications for dieters.
  • R-Beta-Methylphenylethylamine: This is yet another stimulant that shares some similar features with amphetamines. There is little clinical evidence that has been released about this substance, and none of it relates to studies in humans. There is very little information available about this substance’s strength and any side effects that it may cause. A lack of warnings about the product does not automatically make it safe for use.
  • Rauwolfia vomitoria root extract (standardised to a minimum 90% Alpha-yohimbine): Rauwolfia vomitoria root has been used in Nigerian herbal medicine to treat psychiatric disorders, and some research has been conducted into its effects upon behaviour in rats. However, no research has been conducted on this plant in relation to weight loss. The active part of the plant we are interested in is yohimbine; some studies have noticed increased blood concentrations of free fatty acids in participants who use yohimbine (which is more commonly extracted from yohimbe), suggesting increased rates of lipolysis. However, the Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database has stated that there is insufficient evidence to claim it aids in weight loss.
  • Huperzia serrata Club moss Extract (standardised to a minimum 1% Huperzine A): There is no evidence or even any anecdotal proof that we could find linking Huperzia serrara, also known as Chinese Club Moss, to any mechanism that would promote weight loss. It is typically used to treat memory problems.
  • Capsicum annum fruit extract: More commonly known as chilli pepper extract or capsicum, it is used to treat upset stomach, intestinal gas, stomach pain and diarrhoea. Studies have also shown that it can stimulate the metabolism for a short period of time following consumption.

So What Does All This Mean?

There is a wide variety of ingredients used in Hypercuts, but unfortunately, many of them have had little research conducted on them. There are numerous stimulants here, and these are the main issue we have with this diet pill- because these ingredients are fairly new to the diet pill market and are under-researched in humans, there is a lack of information about how they affect the body, and whether they are safe for use.

These stimulants are comparable to amphetamines in composition, and this raises warning flags, as they could cause serious side effects, could potentially be addictive, and the body may become used to their presence, making them increasingly ineffective, but no less dangerous over time.

There are also some ingredients that appear to have no relation to weight loss at all in Hypercuts, such as Huperzia serrata Club moss Extract.

Caffeine, Capsicum annum fruit extract and Naringin have been clinically linked with weight loss, and their side effects are far less severe than those associated with amphetamine style stimulants.

Does Hypercuts Have Any Side Effects?

It is quite likely that users of Hypercuts will experience side effects based upon the ingredients list. Ingredient quantities are not known, so it makes it very difficult to speculate how strong Hypercuts is, and therefore how likely it is that any of the following side effects will occur.

Higenamine is considered possibly unsafe because it simply has not been clinically tested in humans. It is a stimulant, and so could increase heart rate, increase blood pressure, and potentially cause a whole range of cardiac related problems. It is also not clear what plant this has been extracted from, and this could mean other side effects are also possible.

Aconite is one source of Higenamine that has caused serious heart-related side effects including arrhythmias and even death. R-Beta-Methylphenylethylamine is another ingredient under-researched in humans, and as it is similar in composition to amphetamines, it could have serious side effects that are currently undocumented.

Stimulants in general can cause sleep problems, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, insomnia, jitteriness and heart palpitations. Worse side effects may occur, and the lack of clinical evidence makes these ingredients a risk to use.

Huperzia serrata could cause dizziness, nausea and sweating, but a lack of clinical research means that its safety is generally unknown.

Huperzine A, found in Huperzia Serrata, can cause nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, sweating, cramping, high blood pressure, slowed heart rate and even incontinence.

Capsicum Annum is unsafe for use in the long term, and in the short term could cause side effects such as stomach irritation and upset, sweating, flushing, and runny nose. Customers report feeling irritable and short tempered, losing sleep if taking the product after 2 pm.


Not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, those who are under 18 years old, or anyone with a known sensitivity to stimulants.

Not suitable for use in the two weeks before any surgery.

Not suitable for anyone with high blood pressure, or any other heart related illnesses.

If unsure about the suitability of this product for you, consult your doctor for more information.

Any Hypercuts Reviews From Customers?

There are very few customer reviews for Hypercuts available, and they are located in several different places. One review was left on third party retailer

Hypercuts Chrome is the truth! I have taken it for 45 days now and I am amazed at how effective it is at killing my appetite. The energy is all day, no crash and no issues with going to sleep! The first day I took 2 caps, was strong, the next day I took just 1 cap and felt very focused and alert.

Whilst some websites appear to advertise the product as Hypercuts Chrome, others, including the manufacturer refer to it as Hypercuts. This seems to be because some websites are still advertising an old formulation of Hypercuts, even though the older product is no longer available.

Two reviews have been left at, both of which are positive.

Replace your morning and afternoon coffee with Hyper Cuts. Excellent Rush of energy, that for me at least, kicked in about twenty minutes after taking it. I just left two on my night stand, and in the morning popped them and by the time I finished my shower I was enjoying awesome focus and energy. Didn’t upset my stomach at all so I was still able to enjoy breakfast. Get Some!

The second review goes into much more detail, listing pros and cons of the product. According to the customer, he suffered from a short temper whilst using the product, and struggled to get a good night’s sleep, even when using one capsule per day. However, it apparently ‘works as described’ and has aided his weight loss, without causing jitters.

So Does Hypercuts Work?

Based on the customer reviews, it does seem that the product aids weight loss, by increasing the metabolism. However, we have serious concerns about the safety of the product, as many of the ingredients are stimulants that have not been tested in humans. A product may well aid weight loss, but if it endangers your health in the process, we feel it is not worth the risk of using the product.

Where Can I Buy Hypercuts?

Hypercuts can be purchased from the manufacturer’s website, at a price of $64.99. This is for a bottle of 60 capsules, which should last for 60 days. The website offers free delivery.

Elsewhere, the same product is priced more competitively, although sometimes it is branded under Hypercuts Chrome. The ingredients lists are identical, and so this is a branding issue, rather than a different product.

Bestpricenutrition offer the same bottle for $32.99 plus delivery, whilst sell the 60 capsule bottle for $29.99 plus delivery. These prices show that it definitely pays to shop around for a bargain, and that the manufacturer does not necessarily offer the lowest price.

What About A Guarantee

CTD Sports, the manufacturers of Hypercuts, claim to have a 31 day returns period, but they do not state if customers can return opened products.

Watchdog Verdict

Overall, this product does seem to be strong, with good potential to aidi weight loss. However, the lack of research that has been conducted on many of the ingredients, and that fact that many of the stimulant ingredients are described as similar to amphetamines raises too many questions about the safety of the product.

Customer reviews are incredibly positive, and the product does not seem to cause jitteriness, but may cause mood swings and definitely interferes with sleeping patterns. There are also numerous groups of people who should avoid this product for the sake of their health.

Yes, Hypercuts does aid weight loss, but we feel the unknown risk to health means that customers should avoid the product.

We reject Hypercuts.
