What You Should Know
Wellbeing be-HOT is an exercise support supplement by General Nutrition Centers. GNC is a popular name in supplementation, but the “be” series has left consumers a bit disappointed. Most of the supplements can be found on GNC store shelves on clearance due to ineffective ingredients and lack of results. Other supplements in the series include be-WHOLE and be-BUFF. There are three supplements that make up the Wellbeing be-HOT exercise pack – be-ENERGIZED, be-ENHANCED and be-DEFINED.
List of Ingredients
Be-ENERGIZED: Caffeine Anhydrous, MegaNatural Grapeseed Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Green Tea Leaves Extract, Capsicum Fruit Extract, Bioperine, Setria L-Glutathione.
Be-ENHANCED: Vitamin E, Tonalin CLA, EPA, DHA, MCT, LA, Oleic Acid, GLA, ALA.
Be-DEFINED: Chloride, Potassium, NAS, Green Tea Leaf Extract.
Wellbeing be-HOT supplement pack offers three defined supplements for the dieter who wants more out of every workout. Be-ENERGIZED provides energy support with caffeine and green tea while supporting fat burn with Bioperine. Alpha Lipoic Acid helps the body utilize anti-oxidants to the fullest. With 200 mg of caffeine, the effect is the same as taking a “No Sleep” pill available over the counter. This is far too much caffeine for many dieters to take at one time.
Be-ENHANCED is based on CLA, or conjugated linoleic acid. CLA used to be the supreme fat loss ingredient until science proved the effects were not as spectacular as once thought. There are some side effects associated with taking CLA including diarrhea, heartburn and indigestion. The remaining ingredients are fatty acids the body uses every day via natural sources like food.
Be-DEFINED is another source of green tea in this supplement. This time the green tea is decaffeinated but the anti-oxidant effects remain. The product description contends be-DEFINED claims the formula will help the dieter tone and sculpt. NAS, is also referred to as Creatine which is used by bodybuilders for just this reason. Typically women do not use the supplement as often as men, but this formula looks to be geared toward women.
Wellbeing be-HOT sells for $44.99 or $35.99 with a Gold Card from GNC.
- Green tea is represented twice in the supplement.

Wellbeing be-HOT packs three supplements into one program to help women lose more weight and tone the body. The ingredient list offers a few glimmers of hope, but the majority of the ingredients are not going to have her looking in the mirror in full Miss Olympia style without hard work and dedication to diet and gym time.
