Cellucor Super HD Review - Does This Weight-Loss Supplement Really Work? Are lack of clinical research and side effects deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.5 / 5.0
Cellucor Super HD Review

We’ve heard all kinds of buzz regarding Cellucor Super HD, so we took the time to create an in-depth review, examining the side effects, ingredients, scientific research and customer service quality. Also, we focused on hundreds of reviews and user responses from around the web. At this point we summed up the data we found to give you the information you need.

EDITOR'S TIP: Substitute Cellucor Super HD with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What You Need To Know

To begin, Cellucor Super HD is a fat burner that contains niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, caffeine anhydrous, N-acetyl-tyrosine, toothed clubmoss, cyanocobalamin, methycobalamin, pyridoxal-5-phosphate, rauwolfia extract, evodiamine, red pepper fruit, yohimbine extract, pausinystalia, dandelion root, amia fruit, rhodiola rosea root, Chinese mistletoe stem, tuber fleece flower root and camellia sinensis leaf. This supplement is supposed to promote appetite control, increase the metabolism of fat, provide high-powered energy and encourage fat reduction. You simply take one capsule in the morning and one capsule in the mid-afternoon (always with 8-12 ounces of water). The pills are portable, a good thing.

Cellucor Super HD was released back in 2013 and is available on the official website. Also, there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee posted on the website and plenty of customer feedback is found online, but read on…

Lack of Clinical Research – “No Proof?”

The first problem we found deals with the lack of support for Cellucor Super HD ingredients. As explained by our Research Editor, “Even though this supplement is promoted as a powerful weight-loss formula, there is no documented scientific proof presented on the official website or anywhere online to back this claim.”

One user said, “I experienced no real benefit from Super HD; no additional energy or focus, no thermogenic symptoms, and certainly no additional weight loss.”

“Not a fan of this stuff at all. It just doesn’t work. More likely than not just a loaded caffeine pill with fairy dusted ingredients,” said another.

We look for science before giving a product the green light, but we also have to take customer experiences into consideration. A few dieters actually saw some positive changes. As one shared, “I see results in days, although I do find that the loss effect reduces to almost zero after about a week.”

Another said, “I don’t overeat because I feel full after eating the portion of what I should eat.”

Serious Side Effects – “Wowsers!”

There are many customer complaints about Cellucor Super HD side effects, which is something that should not be overlooked. One dieter stated, “This stuff made me feel like my heart was gonna explode and made me sick!!!!! No way! Never again!!!! WASTE OF MONEY.”

Another complained, “Headaches, vomiting and feeling like crap since I took this. I have taken other similar products before so I know what to expect, but this product has something that has made me sick.”

Side effects are a problem for many people who’ve tried Cellucor Super HD, but not all users. One dieter explained, “Gives me the energy I need without giving me jitters.”

Yet another said, “I also expected it to make me jittery, and it hasn’t.”

According to our extensive research, if there is a certain part of a weight-loss pill that’s especially bothersome (a painful/difficult exercise routine, pills that cause side effects, no clinical support) the likelihood of long-term success is minimal. In other words, if Cellucor Super HD does cause adverse reactions, this could be a major problem.

The Science – “Clinically Proven?”

Sadly there is no scientific research presented on the official website to back Cellucor Super HD. We did notice some green tea leaf (camellia sinensis leaf) in the formula. This one does have some science showing it helps with weight-loss, but just one’s not enough. For us at DietSpotlight, it’s imperative to see published clinical support for the supplement and its ingredients for us to give the thumb up to the diet product. No studies equals a red flag.

The Bottom Line – Does Cellucor Super HD Work?

OK, let’s get right to the heart of the matter. While Cellucor Super HD does contain an interesting ingredient blend, we have doubts about recommending this one for serious weight reduction. Not only is there a lack of scientific research, but this supplement may cause some side effects as well. Moreover, many dieters complained that this product was ineffective.

If you really want to slim down and rock your best body, we suggest you select a dietary supplement with ingredients backed by solid clinical trial research. Side effects should not be part of the equation.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. This supplement uses a unique blend of four proven ingredients that have been shown in documented clinical studies to help encourage fat loss and increase metabolism. We can’t pinpoint any complaints regarding harmful side effects and user reviews posted online indicate dieters are seeing good results.

It’s a good sign that the company behind Leptigen is so confident in their ingredients they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, quite the positive sign.

What You Should Know

Click Here To See Our Highest Rated Review

Cellucor Super HD is a huge release for the Cellucor company. Several news companies announced the release, as if the product was somehow going to change the face of the weight loss supplement industry. There are more than 60 reviews on GNC where we found the supplement prominently listed. That is a step in the right direction, especially when the average review is 4.8 out of 5 stars. We’ll have to take a look at the ingredient list because the $70 price tag is asking quite a lot of the average dieter.

List of Ingredients

  • Niacin
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
Super HD Nootropic & CNS Support Blend:
  • Caffeine Anhydrous
  • N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine
  • Toothed Clubmoss
Super HD ThermoSculpting Blend:
  • Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract
  • Tuber Fleece Flower Root Extract
  • Chinese Mistletoe Stem
  • Rhodiola Rosea Root Extract
  • Amla Fruit Extract
  • Dandelion Root Extract
  • Pausinystalia
  • Yohimbine Extract
  • Red Pepper Fruit
  • Evodiamine
  • Rauwolfia Extract
B Vitamin Blend:
  • Niacinamide
  • Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate
  • Cyanocobalamin
  • Methylcobalamin
  • CoEnzyme B12

Product Features

Cellucor is a big company and what better way to get dieters to use a product than to send out trial bottles and ask the users to review the supplement. There are even multiple reviews of the same product by one person. The ingredient list will tell if this supplement is all the reviews claim it to be. Caffeine anhydrous is the big stimulant in the formula – no surprise. There is just 160 mg of caffeine, but the dieter takes the supplement twice a day so that ups the total caffeine intake to 320 mg. That is less, by half, than some other fat burners. We still think it is too much, but some dieters can easily handle this much caffeine. Watch your caffeine intake from other sources to reduce the risk of jitters and crash. Toothed Clubmoss is clinically proven to lessen symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease when test subjects took 400 mcg of the supplement per day. This supplement contains 2,500 mcg. We did not find studies on the effects of taking this supplement on a healthy brain. Camellia sinensis leaf (green tea), Tuber fleece flower (Polygnum multiforum) and Chinese mistletoe extract are combined in a proprietary blend. The blend in Cellucor Super HD has just 253 mg. That is not enough green tea to boost metabolism. Tuber fleece is associated with laxative effects and Chinese mistletoe is used as an alternative cancer treatment. These ingredients are not the end-all the reviewers describe. We go over the ingredients and potential Cellucor Super HD Side Effects here. In the remaining ingredients there are no spectacular finds. Dandelion root is a diuretic and will cause the dieter to urinate more often. There is no potassium in the supplement to replace what is lost during increased urination.

  • Great product reviews.
  • A complete list of ingredients is available online for Cellucor Super HD.


  • The ingredient list does not support the product reviews.
  • There is a laxative and diuretic in the formula.


We are not fond of companies using laxatives and diuretics in weight loss supplements, but we are even less fond of people leaving reviews after receiving a trial bottle of a supplement. If Cellucor Super HD was sent out to overweight dieters we don’t think the real end result would be a positive review from a lean man who exercises daily and maintained his healthy 170 pounds while taking the supplement.

    I started this supplement today. Took a pill this morning as instructed with water and food. Felt really energetic and had lots of jittters and lots of bowl movements. It seemed to calm down at about the 6 hour mark and I took another one at about 7 hours. Within 3 hours of the second pill I started vomiting and felt extreme nausea. I am not sure if it works or not, but these extreme side effects that I experienced truly scare me and I do not plan on taking it anymore.

    On a different note, my husband started taking it with me and he has experienced energy boost with some loose bowl movements but no vomiting needs.

    I personally based on my experience would not recommend this product. Side effects were too extreme.

    Can a diabetic person takes this?


    Stephen (Editor)

    Please ask your doctor if this supplement will conflict with your condition or medication(s).

    I used it for a month or so and thought it was wonderful. My chronic fatigue lessened (didn’t quite disappear) and I felt sharp and “can do”. Did great sessions in the gym. I bought it on Amazon – when I came to buy again they weren’t selling it. I bought from another supplier and noticed that the B12 had been reduced by 90% – I am finding this version (same packaging) ineffectual. I am very annoyed and down about it – for a few weeks I saw light at the end of the tunnel of tiredness that blights my life, now I can’t get the same product again. Four stars for the first batch, none for the second.

    Hi, I purchased Cellucor Supoer HD a couple days ago. If I drink about 5-6 cups of coffee a day, will there be potential negative side effects?


    Stephen (Editor)

    Commonly reported side effects include increased blood pressure, jitters, headaches, dizziness and upset stomach. Some dieters advise these fade or are lessened as time goes on. If they persist uncomfortably, please consult your doctor!


  • 5

    Y am I itching


    Stephen (Editor)

    This could be a reaction to the formula. Run through the ingredients with your doctor.


  • 6

    I’ve taken this product about 5time and it never fails to disappoint me. I take the pill and 20-25min. Later I start to feel out of place…I’m unable to focus and I feel quite nauseous and dizzy. Maybe this pill is just not for me.


  • 7

    When will I start seeing results? I’ve been taking this product for about a week now. I’m curious to know..


    Stephen (Editor)

    On average it takes around a month to see results from a diet or supplement, give or take a week depending on the individual.
    We do have concerns about a few reported side effects. If you find this formula is not effective after that time browse our reviews for an alternative.


  • 8

    What ingredients cause this product to show up on a drug test?


    Stephen (Editor)

    1,3-Dimethylamylamine is an ingredient that is known to cause false positives but the company does not list this as an ingredient. When companies have a proprietary blend or secure ingredients list it’s difficult to tell just what and how much of what is in it.


  • 9

    I am taking this now. I use one scoop in the am and one right before my workout. Great appitite suppressant, great clean evergy, no jitters, i eat way less, and i feel great. Now i do drink loads of coffee so im no stranger to caffine. And i dont have any reasons to take drug tests. This stuff in my opinion is great. I dont get irritable or angry or anxiety. All around great. But remember, everyone is different, and everyone reacts differently to everything.


  • 10

    I like the product but I have a problem with my sleep. Can I use a sleeping pills under a counter together with HD?


    Stephen (Editor)

    Before using a sleep aid try not taking the product within six hours of sleep, as the company suggests. If at that point no luck then yes, with your doctor’s approval.


  • 11

    Just bought this and used it for one day and I already feel my heart racing! even when just sitting down or relaxing!


  • 12

    Took a pill about 3 days ago and I’ve been having chest pains every since.


  • 13

    I failed a drug test, they said I had meth and mdma in my system (I don’t do drugs). This is the only diet pill I have been taking. Also this does not suppress your appetite, I would take this pill and I was still eating everything and more. I would not suggest anyone to take this unless you want to feel jittery and hungry.


  • 14

    i was taking super hd and showed up positive on a drug test for speed why did this happen?


    Arnold (Editor)

    Unfortunately Colton It is possible to test positive for drug use when under this product due to the nature of the ingredients.

    Yes, Nicholas, some dieters say a bit too much.

    It does work well on appetite and energy. I want to be sure that the only diuretic and laxative is natural as described as from flower and natural sources. Please assure me there are no chemicals or generally considered artificial things added.

    I used this product for about 5 months and it helped me cut about 50 pounds as well a working out which I was doing at the same rate before using it! It helped me control my appetite and focus!


  • 19

    I took this approx two years ago. Ill give credit where it is due. It works. Best workouts ive ever had in the gym came from this. I went from 265-270 to 230 lbs in three and a half months. Good dieting helped alot too. Im no stranger to caffeine by any means, this stuff was potent to the point i couldnt sleep. I became a very irritable and angry individual while taking this. I dont know why or how but i did. Im looking now for a more natural way to lose weight and maintain some muscle. This is just an fyi if this has happened to anyone else feel free o let me know.



    Hey Matt! I had a similar experience. While I enjoyed (and became addicted to) the focus and energy, I also experienced sleeplessness, irritability, anger and anxiety. The real trouble though was when I had a few drinks in the evening after taking Super Hd in the morning. You wouldn’t think there would be an interaction after that much time has passed, but I had a couple near-blackout experiences after only a few drinks. There’s just not enough research on this supplement and its ingredients to deem it safe.
