By Nader Qudimat / Jul 23, 2017 Review of: Lipodrene Elite Purpose: Increase thermogenesis and mood Effectiveness Provides long lasting energy, focus and euphoria as it uses strong stimulants like coca leaves and DMAA. Ingredients Strong mix of fat burning ingredients with high-end stimulants to keep energy high and cravings low throughout the day. Price Fairly priced. Availability Widely available. We like Long lasting energy and focus Newly used stimulant coca extract Decreases appetite and cravings Combines strong stimulants with fat burning ingredients Elevates mood and motivation Unique compared to the previous Lipodrene fat burners Can be stacked with a non-stimulant pre workout We Don't Like 1 pill is the maximum dose (Too strong for beginners) Summary: If you like strong fat burners (like the original Lipodrene), you’ll love Lipodrene Elite.Combining DMAA, coca leaves and a whole bunch of stimulants makes this fat burner next level stuff. The euphoria on this is superior compared to the previous Lipodrene versions (and most fat burners for that matter). Lipodrene Elite is unique fat burner that can decrease appetite, improve mood (euphoric-like!) and put you in a high energy state for nice amount of time (around 6 hours or more). Although Hi-Tech has multiple versions of Lipodrene, each one is unique and can blast fat away with different but strong stimulants like coca here. Hi-Tech is always innovative with their formulas and Lipodrene Elite just proves they are constantly willing to take supplements to the next level. Check It Out Nothing is better than a strong fat burner that delivers a powerful kick. Whether it’s stimulants like DMAA, ephedra or even the newly used Coca stimulant, we dig the hardcore stuff. This time, it’s neither DMAA or ephedra but coca and it’s looking good in Lipodrene Elite. Hi-Tech has more than one version of Lipodrene, and each version mainly adjusts the amount of ephedra, DMAA and / or caffeine. Here are the differences between the various versions Original Lipodrene (35mg DMAA, 150 caffeine, 200mg PEA alkaloids) Lipodrene Hardcore (30-35mg DMAA, 25mg ephedra extract, 150mg caffeine, 20mg synephrine, around 200mg PEA alkaloids, and much more stims) Lipodrene Xtreme (60-70mg DMAA, >150mg caffeine, 175mg PEA alkaloids, 25mg Synephrine) Lipodrene Elite (Coca leaves, 65mg DMAA, 150mg caffeine, PEA alkaloids and more) Now Lipodrene Elite is even better than their strongest thermogenic, Lipodrene Hardcore. Hi-Tech is known to be innovative with their supplements, ranging from their DMAA-based intra workout, to their pre workouts and fat burners. They dominate every category with the strong stuff and no hardcore stimulant gets left behind. Lipodrene Elite is the first fat burner to ever use coca leaves and it’s done so while keeping a generous 65mg dose of DMAA and other good stuff. This stuff is even stronger than the original Lipodrene as it contains more DMAA while keeping the same original PEA blend that has been shown to outperform 30mg ephedrine! Now let’s dig in and see what this version of Lipodrene Elite can do for you…Ingredients Right off the top we see a giant proprietary blend that no one likes to see but at the very least we know the dosages for the important stuff like DMAA and caffeine. The very first ingredient of the blend is coca leaves, meaning it’s dosed fairly high! And yes, this really does contain coca leaves straight from the same plant that cocaine is made from but don’t worry, there are no drug-like effects when taken orally. There’s about 19 alkaloids with the plant only containing about 0.5% percent cocaine. Hi-Tech is most likely using a cocaine-free extract (which has been documented in U.S. Patent 49566429) so Lipodrene Elite is free of any illegal substances.Proprietary blend (473mg)This blend is what makes Lipodrene Elite for what it is. Every stimulant in here has some synergy like you have DMAA and coca leaves for mood and focus enhancement with a nice PEA blend to ensure it lasts. And then there’s the traditionally used caffeine and some other stimulants in here. This fat burner will have you in a thermogenic state for a while (at least for 5-6 hours from the first dose!) Erythroxylum Coca LeavesThis is what you’re probably here for. Erythroxylum coca is a South American plant that can be found in high altitudes and it’s been traditionally used to remedy altitude sickness. Its leaves are usually chewed to provide a mental and physical boost as it can provide some stimulation like caffeine but with more of a motivational / uplifted sense. What’s the deal with it being in a fat burner, you ask? In a study that used both cocaine HCl and E. Coca Leaf extract, the extract has been found to be an extremely effective thermogenic ingredient while having absolutely no tolerance build up unlike cocaine HCl. Coca leaves and what was used in the extract... Keep in mind this research was based on animals (rats) rather than humans but it should have similar results. Like ephedra, the plant has many constituents and alkaloids which can be extracted for but Hi-Tech has not made it clear which ones they are using. With the help of the coca extract, you’ll be in a good mood no matter how tough your diet and training is. You’ll likely be energized and motivated with long lasting energy without the slightest hint of fatigue.Senegalia Berlandieri This here is the PEA blend we mentioned earlier. Usually referred to as Acacia Rigidula extract, this blend contains 170mg of PEA alkaloids, including: MethylsynephrineN-Methyl-B-Phenylethylamine (NMPEA) N-Phenethyldimethylamine B-Phenylethylamine Outperforming 30mg of ephedra, this extract has been documented to be more effective for weight loss. You’ll also feel uplifted and motivated thanks to the PEA alkaloids and even more so since there’s cocoa leaves in here. Citrus Aurantium (25mg Synephrine)Bitter orange, or the scientific name, Citrus Aurantium has many bioactive alkaloids that promote weight loss. This unique ephedrine alternative can increase metabolic rate without increasing blood pressure or heart rate. It can stimulate lipolysis by making your body use fat for fuel. The neat thing about synephrine is that it can increase metabolic rate without any physical activity. Green Tea Green tea is packed with polyphenols and catechins (particularly EGCG) which are both beneficial for weight loss and cardiovascular health. This extract is in almost every fat burner and it’s only increasing in popularity as more people realize its benefits and potential for weight loss. DMAA (65mg)When it comes to DMAA, Hi-Tech loves to use it and they are willing to fight for it. In fact, they are constantly in legal battles with the FDA but are willing to go all out since DMAA can be found in geranium plants and oils, thus making it a legal and DSHEA-compliant ingredient. Now this stimulant is known to increase well-being, mood, energy and weight loss but not without its side effects. With doses over 70mg, elevated blood pressure is likely to occur. The good side about this strong stimulant is that it can increase norepinephrine production without increasing heart rate or blood pressure, and that’s if you don’t go over 70mg. Luckily there’s just 65mg per capsule so that is towards the upper limit. It is important that you do not take more than one capsule at a time (you can take a 2nd capsule 6 hours after the first, but most people find 1 capsule to be more than enough.) The original Lipodrene is still strong and packed with DMAA as well…TheobromineThis here is the milder version of caffeine. Theobromine can be found in dark chocolate, which shouldn’t surprise you of its ability to enhance mood and it can also provide a source of smooth energy with no crash at all. So even after DMAA and caffeine wears off, you’ll still be going thanks to the long lasting energy that Theobromine gives. Caralluma ExtractCaralluma is an interesting extract as it comes from cactus’s and is packed with many alkaloids. One of them being pregnane glycosides, a powerful appetite suppressant that keeps hunger at bay. It’s traditionally used by Indians to keep up their endurance and decreasing their hunger during long hunts. With the help of Caralluma here, you’ll be less likely to have those junk food cravings even if you’re cutting. NaringenThis ingredient and the next are both polyphenols that can be found in grapefruit. It can increase energy and with the help of dihydroxybergamottin (the next ingredient), the energy will be longer lasting so you don’t deal with any crashes. 6,7 DihydroxybergamottinLike the polyphenol above, this can be found in grapefruit and functions like piperine in the sense that it can prevent the breakdown of useful compounds. Basically, it’ll help naringen’s energy release much slower and longer. 5-Methoxytryptamine HCl & 5-HTPThese two ingredients are both help support serotonin production while decreasing appetite and fat storage. Like the polyphenol combination we mentioned earlier, these two ingredients work together and help support and prolong the benefits. 5-HTP will help increase serotonin production while 5-Methoxytryptamine will prolong the release. Yohimbe Extract To top off this synergistic blend of fat burning and appetite suppressing compounds, is Yohimbe extract. Yohimbe can suppress appetite and prevent the storage of fat. It can also increase energy and is often included in hardcore pre workouts as it’s a powerful stimulant. The dosage here is a bit of a secret but Hi-Tech usually puts around 1.5 to 3mg per capsule. Hi-Tech’s answer to Jack3d, creating a better version with DMAA and nitric oxide!Caffeine (150mg)Caffeine here is never left out in any strong fat burner. This proven stimulant is dosed at 150mg but considering the other stimulants in here (DMAA, coca, Yohimbe), there’s no reason to consider this a low dosage! Caffeine can increase energy and alertness while decreasing fatigue For reference, it includes as much caffeine as the original Lipodrene but twice as much DMAA and more. Hydoxyelite Vs Lipodrene Elite Vs Lipodrene (Other versions)If you’re looking at Lipodrene Elite than you’re probably aware there’s already quite a few strong fat burners out there. Let’s compare and see what each of these popular fat burners offer and how they differ… Lipodrene Elite (Coca leaves, 65mg DMAA, 150mg caffeine, PEA alkaloids and more) Hydroxyelite (Same original formula as USP Labs OxyELITE: DMAA, 250mg garcinia cambogia extract, 100mg caffeine) Original Lipodrene (35mg DMAA, 150 caffeine, 200mg PEA alkaloids) Lipodrene Hardcore (30-35mg DMAA, 25mg ephedra extract, 150mg caffeine, 20mg synephrine, around 200mg PEA alkaloids, and much more stims) Lipodrene Xtreme (60-70mg DMAA, >150mg caffeine, 175mg PEA alkaloids, 25mg Synephrine) DosingThe dosing is simple. Take one capsule in the morning on an empty stomach and another one if you can handle it in the afternoon. Now even if you’re an experienced veteran with hardcore stimulants like DMAA and Yohimbe, you’ll probably find 1 capsule per day to be more than enough. You can use this as a pre workout as well. But if you’re already using a pre, make sure you’re not overdoing it with the stimulants as dosages that go over 70mg DMAA and / or 300mg caffeine per day can have some nasty side effects like elevated blood pressure and anxiety. Final WordsBeing the first fat burner to contain coca, this is one impressive fat burner. Lipodrene Elite doesn’t only have a fresh new stimulant but also full dosages of DMAA, strong appetite suppressants and much more. This fat burner isn’t only the best for mood support but also a powerful appetite suppressor and performs well even at just 1 capsule.
