Product Features

Hydroxycut Shots is designed to provide energy and weight loss results. To get the “maximum instant energy” it is suggested to drink an entire serving, or one whole bottle (2 ounces) during one sitting. To get “sustained energy and weight loss” it is advised to drink a full bottle three times a day at least an hour before each meal. For best results, shake the drink well before drinking it. Do not drink more than three two ounce shots in any 24 hour period. It is not suggested to take this poduct within five hours of bedtime because the caffeine and stimulants could disrupt your sleep pattern. It is advised to use this product for eight weeks, alongside a reduced calorie diet and regular exercise program. For even better results, avoid snacking after dinner and drink at least ten glasses of water every day.

Many people have lost faith in the Hydroxycut company since the recall of 2009 where many of their products were removed from the shelves after the FDA warned of liver damage related to the use of their products. Though Shots was not one of the products in this recall, there is still great reason to practice caution if you choose to use this supplement. We recommend finding a supplement that contains fat burners or appetite suppressants that are safer than this product.
