About Hydroxycut

Hydroxycut is a group of dietary supplements that was originally manufactured by a Canadian nutritional company known as MuscleTech in 2002. The supplement is marketed and sold as a fat burning supplement and an aid for losing weight. However MuscleTech was purchased by another company called Lovate Health Sciences from 2003 to 2004 and in 2005, MuscleTech declared bankruptcy. Nevertheless, Lovate utilizes the name of MuscleTech to sell Hydroxycut. The ambassador for the product is Sean Lowe who also starred in ABC’s popular reality dating game show “The Bachelor” during the 17th season in 2013.

In 2013 it was proved that the main ingredients in Hydroxycut were lady’s mantle extract which is a herb, anhydrous coffee, cumin extract, an olive extract, green coffee bean extract, and a mint extract. Prior to 2004, the product contained a compound called ephedra which was banned by the FDA in the same year. Ephedra is believed to increase athletic performance but the claim is not supported scientifically. After the product was reformulated in 2004, there were several cases of health risks associated with the use of Hydroxycut especially liver damage. Hence, the FDA issued a ban and a warning for consumers to stop taking Hydroxycut. By that time, Lovate had acquired MuscleTech and it agreed to recall the product.

Lovate reformulated Hydroxycut and put it back on the market for sale. The FDA approved the product but still warned against the presence of high doses of caffeine in the product.
