Is Hydroxycut Effective?There is a lack of reliable and validated scientific evidence to support a conclusion that Hydroxycut is effective for weight loss. If you go to the Web site for Hydroxycut, you will find several studies that "prove" the effectiveness of this supplement. However, it you look closely, you will notice that these small studies evaluated individual components of the product (not the entire formulation). Larger studies that evaluate the effectiveness (and safety) are still necessary to confirm these smaller studies.
