The question is, does Cellucor Super HD live up to the company’s reputation? How will this fat burner work for you? Is it safe to take long-term and what kind of side effects does it have, if it has any? We answer all of these questions for you below – read on!
Cellucor Super HD: Dosage Directions
You may wonder, what’s the optimal way to take Cellucor Super HD? The official instructions from Cellucor are to take 1 capsule (1 serving) of Super HD with a full glass of water, and another one 5-6 hours later in the mid-afternoon.
As you’ll see below, Cellucor Super HD contains a number of intense stimulants, so you’ll want to avoid taking it too close to bedtime due to insomnia.
Ingredients in Cellucor Super HD
The ingredients in Cellucor Super HD are:
- SuperHD Thermogenic Blend (193mg), consisting of:
- N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (Unknown dose)
- Amla Fruit Extract (Unknown dose)
- Dandelion extract (Unknown dose)
- Yohimbe bark extract (Unknown dose)
- Capsimax Cayenne Pepper (Unknown dose)
- Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzia Serrata) (Unknown dose)
- Rauwolfia vomitoria extract (Unknown dose)
- Caffeine Anhydrous (160mg)
- GreenSelect Green Tea Leaf Extract (150mg)
As you can see, Cellucor Super HD has opted to use a big proprietary blend, which doesn’t show us the doses of ingredients in it. You’re only able to see the combined dose of all the ingredients together. This allows the manufacturer to potentially underdose some of the ingredients to save on production costs. The manufacturer can still list the ingredient on the label even though it might only be found in trace amounts. Why is this an issue? Because, it prevents us from being able to asses which ingredients are effectively and safely dosed, and which are not.
That being said, let’s take a closer look at the ingredients themselves to see if any of them have evidence showing they can help you lose weight faster, or suppress appetite.
Tyrosine is a dietary amino acid that your brain uses to create dopamine.  Dopamine is a neurochemical that governs our mood and well-being, as well movement and other vital functions. Low levels of dopamine often manifest as a lack of focus and willpower. While Tyrosine won’t be helping you burn fat, naturally increasing dopamine with it is a good way to enhance your daily weight loss success.
Amla Fruit Extract
Amla is a source of various antioxidants and nutrients that contribute to your general health.  However, we don’t currently have any strong evidence showing Amla will help you shed pounds.
Dandelion, known as “Pissenlit” in French, is a natural diuretic – which is where the nickname comes from. Dandelion will naturally put extra pressure on your kidneys, so you’ll want to drink plenty of water to avoid getting dehydrated. The only benefit of a diuretic is that it may reduce water bloat. But it doesn’t contribute to actual fat loss. 
Yohimbe bark extract
Yohimbe is an evergreen tree rich in an active compound called Yohimbine. Yohimbine is a very powerful stimulant. So powerful that countries like UK, Canada, and Australia have banned it.  Yes, you’ve read that right! Yohimbine is no joke – its aggressive and harsh effects often make people unwell, especially when paired with other stimulants such as caffeine.
Capsimax Cayenne Pepper
Cayenne Pepper is an excellent ingredient. Thanks to its active compound capsaicin, Cayenne Pepper Extract activates your body’s metabolism to burn more calories, through a process known as thermogenesis – it’s what makes SuperHD Thermogenic, thermogenic! 
Toothed Clubmoss, or Huperzia Serrata, is a plant that contains Huperzine A, a compound that is thoguht to influence memory and cognitive function. The problem with Huperzine A, however, is a potential for headaches and other side effects when used long-term.
Rauwolfia vomitoria extract
Rauwolfia vomitoria is another stimulant in SuperHD. Although there’s very little human research on it, Rauwolfia Vomitoria is thought to be even more aggressive than Yohimbine in effects. If this proves to be true, it would be no surprise to see Rauwolfia as another banned ingredient in supplements in the future.
Just when we thought Rauwolfia was the last of the stimulants in SuperHD, we were in for an ugly surprise! Caffeine is the world’s most well-known legal stimulant that energizes your central nervous system (CNS), along with blocking your brain’s adenosine receptors from making you sleepy.  At 160mg per serving, caffeine is excellently dosed in Super HD – but combining it with Rauwolfia vomitoria and Yohimbine can lead to severe side effects.
GreenSelect Green Tea Leaf Extract
Green Tea is an excellent choice for any fat burner. Due to its low caffeine content, and high amounts of antioxidants, it will provide your body with a clean source of energy and nutrients that contribute to fat loss.  It’s a bit underdosed here, though; the optimal green tea extract dosage has been shown to be between 300-500mg per day.
Cellucor SuperHD Reviews and Testimonials
Cellucor is a world-renowned brand, so you won’t have a hard time finding SuperHD reviews. Generally speaking, the reviews are positive but as with any product, there are people who claim they didn’t get the results they expected. Specifically in Super HD’s case, some users complained about heart palpitations, insomnia, anxiety and other side effects, due to the strong stimulant concoction.
In terms of Cellucor Super HD before and after results, they didn’t blow us away. Whilst Super HD seems to reliably increase a person’s energy levels, the amount of fat loss it achieves isn’t very impressive.
If you usually have a high tolerance for stimulants, you will likely be able to handle Cellucor Super HD’s harsh effects.
However, for anyone who’s sensitive or doesn’t tolerate stimulants very well, Cellucor Super HD can cause the following side effects:
- Inability to sleep
- Panic attacks
- Elevated blood pressure
- Racing heart
Cellucor Super HD also might cause liver side effects in sensitive individuals, which is why it’s important to check with your doctor before taking the supplement.
Cost, Where to Buy, and Other Things to Consider
Cellucor Super HD is available on its official website, on Amazon, at Walmart and other big stores. On the official website, 1 bottle of Cellucor Super HD (a month’s supply if you follow the dosage recommendations) will cost you $29.99. However, be aware that the price can vary significantly depending on where you buy it.
Cellucor Super HD is also available as powder. It comes in different flavors, with our favorite being Strawberry Lemonade. It mixes easily and dissolves in water without a problem.
Cellucor Super HD Review: The Bottom Line
Cellucor Super HD contains several great fat burning ingredients – including green tea extract, cayenne pepper extract, and caffeine.
However, they also added other stimulants on top of caffeine that significantly raise your risk of side effects. If you usually get jitters from caffeine, be prepared to get much worse side effects when you consume Cellucor Super HD – because it contains Yohimbe and Rauwolfscine which are more aggressive than caffeine itself.
Also, in terms of cravings reduction, Cellucor Super HD could’ve included one of the best natural appetite suppressants out there – Glucomannan. It’s also missing chromium and a few other proven fat loss ingredients to be more effective at doing what it claims.
If you’re fine with the stimulants though, it could work well for you. At the price of $29.99 per bottle (1-month supply) you’re getting a relatively cheap fat burner, even though it doesn’t quite rank as one of the most effective fat burners currently around.
