Hot Body Xtreme Review
What You Should Know
Hot Body Xtreme is a fat burner that claims to contain ephedra. According to the product description, the supplement controls hunger, burns fat and helps the dieter feel more energetic. These are all common effects of ephedra, but ephedra is no longer legal for distribution and sale as a diet supplement in the United States, so the company may be selling an illegal supplement. The going price for Hot Body Xtreme is $50 a bottle, but dieters can purchase multiple bottles to save money.
List of Ingredients
- White Willow Bark
- Hawthorn Berries
- Green Tea
- Black Walnut Hulls
- Licorice Root
The first three ingredients in Hot Body Xtreme are an ECA stack. ECA stands for ephedra, caffeine and aspirin. In diet supplements, the aspirin is replaced with a natural form of aspirin known as white willow bark. These three ingredients were the foundation of every popular diet supplement on the market when ephedra was legal. When the FDA banned ephedra, it was replaced with synephrine in most cases. This supplement does not contain synephrine, so there is a good chance the ephedra in the formula was either replaced with a legal extract of the same plant or the company is attempting to sell an illegal product.
What are the dangers of an ECA stack? If a dieter is sensitive to caffeine, an ECA stack will boost heart rate higher than caffeine alone. Hot Body Xtreme could cause jitters, hypertension and death, in some cases. The white willow bark works as a blood thinner so dieters currently taking blood thinners should not take Hot Body Xtreme or any other diet supplement that contains white willow bark.
Black walnut hulls are a natural laxative. Laxatives are not a good solution for long-term weight loss. Laxatives increase bowel movements and can cause dehydration. Taking licorice root, another ingredient in Hot Body Xtreme, with a laxative can cause a dangerously low potassium level.
