Were you looking for information about Hydroxycut? Hydroxicut is a common misspelling of Hydroxycut.
Hydroxycut® is an over-the-counter weight-loss supplement. It is not exactly known how (or if) most of the ingredients in this product work. However, it is believed that some of them work by decreasing blood sugar and reducing body fat. At one point, Hydroxycut contained ephedra, although this ingredient has since been banned due to safety concerns. Now, ephedra-free versions contain many different active ingredients, such as calcium, potassium, green tea extract, and chromium.
There are possible side effects with Hydroxycut, such as insomnia, high blood pressure, and a rapid heart rate. The recommended dosage will vary depending on which Hydroxycut product you use. Prior to taking this supplement, be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
