Lipodrene Original vs Xtreme vs Hardcore vs Elite

Ultimate Lipodrene Guide 2018

All Lipodrene!

With the huge number of different Lipodrene formulas on the market, it’s tough to figure out which one is the best to use. We get questions from customers every day about what the best formula for them to reach the results they want to achieve. In this guide we are going to go over the different formulas and explain the differences of each so that you can have a better idea of which one to choose for your own goals. If you made it to this guide and are looking for something with no caffeine, no stimulants or something with very little of them, this product line isn’t right for you. Even though all these formulas are different, each is very strong, which is why these Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals supplements are the most popular fat burners on the market today.

Lipodrene

  • Thermogenic Fat Burner
  • Stops Cravings
  • Increases Metabolism
  • Improves mood

Lipodrene Original

Who Should Take This: People who are looking to take their first step into more extreme fat burners. This is an entry level fat burner for those looking to take it up a notch. Once you can start tolerating the original formula, you can test out the others. Start here first!

The original formula that started it all. Lipodrene was loved from day one because users not only felt the results, but saw the results as well. Why? The ingredients.

This powerful formula comes with 25mg of Ephedra Extract per serving. Thought it was banned? Not all ephedra was banned. Just the ephedrine alkaloids (ephedrine, pseudoephedrine, norephedrine and methylephedrine). The Thermo-Z™ formula that Hi Tech uses is an effective, yet safe version. 

Caffeine, which everyone wants in their fat burner these days is included. Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals provides 100mg of caffeine per tablet. Enough to increase energy, fat burning and focus. One tablet is about the same as a cup of coffee. Now if you did the full dose of 3 tablets per day, that means about 300mg of caffeine per day. Some may not think that’s enough, but plenty of studies show that even 100-200mg is enough to improve athletic performance and increase weight loss. And don’t forget, this formula has a lot of other stimulants in it!

This formula also has Senegalia Berlandieri Extract (125mg) (Formerly Acacia rigidula). There is a research showing its even more effective than ephedra for weight loss. It can also help with boosting your mood, which is great when dieting.

Synephrine was also included in the original Lipodrene due to its effectiveness for turning your fat into a fuel source. It can also increase your metabolic rate without the nasty side effects that other stimulants can cause.

The original-original formula also had 1,3 DMAA. But that is for the courts right now whether it will ever be back. Right now Hi Tech and the courts are fighting it out. If it goes Hi Tech’s way, we will definitely see the 1,3 DMAA added again, but if not, most likely the formula will stay as it is.

Lipodrene Hardcore

  • Increased Energy
  • Mood Boosting
  • Suppresses Appetite 
  • All Day Energy

Lipodrene Hardcore: Advanced Users Only

Who Should Take This:Only those who have taken the original Lipodrene and want something higher in stimulants!

This product is very similar to the original Lipodrene, but with only some slight differences. The hardcore formula was released by Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals because they wanted something for the advanced user. The user that wasn’t stimulant sensitive and was very familiar with the effects of taking stimulant based fat burners. Lipodrene Hardcore has a few more stimulants in the formula (still has 25mg ephedra of course!), but the biggest difference is the increase of caffeine by 100%!!! Where the original Lipodrene has 100mg of caffeine per tablet, Lipodrene Hardcore has 200mg of caffeine per tablet. Now, this is a big difference, especially depending on how many you take per day. Both the original and the hardcore formulas recommend 3 tablets per day, so with the 200mg of caffeine, you could be taking upwards of 600mg of caffeine per day. That is a huge amount! So that is why we only recommend this formula if you are very stimulant tolerant and are familiar with taking high amounts of caffeine. Now the original of the Lipodrene Hardcore had 1,3 DMAA, but as we mentioned earlier, this is in the courts right now, so the current version available does not have 1,3 DMAA.

The other difference is in the tablet. This is a rapid release tablet, so it is going to hit your very fast. People looking for energy will love this formula for just that reason. We have many customers that use it as a pre-workout pill because of the energy rush they get from it.

Lipodrene Elite

  • All Day Energy
  • Increased Mood
  • Fat Burner
  • Better Appetite Suppression

Lipodrene Elite: Beginner & Advanced Users

Who Should Take This:Those that don’t want ephedra or want to try a stimulant they have never tried before.

This is the latest formula to be released from Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals. What makes this formula unique from all the others, and even other fat burners in the industry, is the introduction of coca leaves. Yes, you heard right, this has coca leaves in it! Because of this strong stimulant, Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals left out ephedra and DMAA/DMHA from it. They wanted Lipodrene Elite to focus on caffeine, some other stimulants and coca leaves. Most customers that choose to use this formula want something different from anything they have ever used before. It’s also good for those users that don’t react well with ephedra, DMAA or DMHA.

So, what does the addition of coca leaves do? Coca leaves have been shown to help with weight loss, to reduce food craving and increase overall energy! That’s basically everything you would want from a fat burner, right? And a note about the coca leaves in this product…it is cocaine free and doesn’t include any illegal ingredients or substances.

Another big difference between Lipodrene Elite and Original Lipodrene is with the caffeine content. The Elite formula has a full 50mg more caffeine per tablet. Might not seem like a lot, but if you were to take 3 tablets per day, that another 150mg of caffeine or an extra large cup of coffee each day!

Whereas Lipodrene is the original weight loss and fat burning supplement, Lipodrene Elite can go a step further and offer more appetite suppression and boosting mood.

Lipodrene Xtreme

  • Ephedra Free
  • Boosts Metabolism 
  • Increases Energy
  • Natural Herbs

Lipodrene Xtreme

Who Should Take This:This is the most extreme formula out of the bunch and only for stimulant junkies!

First, we are going to note that this version is no longer available. This not only had Acacia, but also 1,3 DMAA in it. But the new formula is available for pre-order with DMHA! 

Users loved Lipodrene Xtreme because of the immediate burst of energy they got from it. This formula hits you hard and hits you quickly. The way the tablets were manufactured allow for a quick release, continued release and a delayed release so that you have energy for hours…and it does this without the crash. Right after taking it you will get a boost of energy and really feel it. That will continue when the middle layer is released into the blood stream. Finally, the delayed release comes through and continues to supply you will energy throughout the day. That characteristic of Lipodrene Xtreme makes it great for taking pre-workout or for an all-day fat burning-energy supplement!

Lipodrene Ephedra/DMAA Free

  • Helps Burn Fat
  • Increases Weight Loss
  • Increases Energy
  • Appetite Suppression 

Lipodrene Ephedra/DMAA Free

Who Should Take This: The Ephedra free version is for anyone that doesn’t want any strong stimulants such as Ephedra or DMAA.

This could be considered the stimulant-sensitive fat burner out of the bunch. Still stronger than most fat burners you will find out on the market, but not as strong as the other Lipodrene formulas talked about above. While this product may be coming back, Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals is not currently manufacturing it at the moment. We are guessing it is due to the low sales of this formula. People know the Lipodrene name and they expect intense energy, and this formula might not have lived up to the name. Here at Best Price Nutrition we only recommend it for beginners and no one that is looking for intense energy.

Q&A

Have questions on Lipodrene? Here are a few most ask questions.

How should I take it? What is the best way?

While it depends on the formula you get, if you are getting the original formula, you should take 1-2 tablets in the morning before breakfast and then another tablet after lunch. If you are doing fine with the 3 tablets per day, you can move up to an additional tablet after lunch. Never take more than 4 tablets in 24 hours. Because of the extreme potency, we recommend starting with 1 tablet per day and moving up to 3-4 per day maximum. Take this supplement for 8 weeks and then take at least 4 weeks before starting another cycle.

What Results can I Achieve?

It really depends on your goals, your dieting, your sleep and your training. This isn’t a magic pill, so you still have to put in work. The more work you put in, the better these products will work for you.

Is this product only for men?

Nope. This is a common misconception. While this product line is very strong, both men and women can take them. They are non-hormonal, so perfect for either sex.

I thought Ephedra was illegal?

Ephedra alkaloids are illegal. These products do not contain them. It’s really a different part of the plant, which makes these supplements perfectly legal in the United States. For other countries, you will need to check with your customs office or your local laws.

Are there side effects with this product?

With any fat burner on the market today, there are side effects. While rare, customers sometimes notice higher blood pressure, jitters, caffeine crashes. There are other side effects as well, and if you are concerned, we highly recommend everyone talk to their doctor before taking any sort of fat burner or new supplement with stimulants.

Why is DMAA no longer in Lipodrene?

Currently Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals is in court with the FDA for DMAA. While not banned, its not for sale either until the courts decide their ruling on DMAA being legal or illegal.

Are these capsules, pills or tablets?

These products are famous for their tablets. Each formula has a different color tablet making them very easy to recognize. The original Lipodrene is the most famous for its little yellow hexagon tablets.

Is this product a thermogenic?

Yes, all the different formulas can be considered a thermogenic fat burner. They do heat you up and increase your metabolism.

Should you take this with alcohol?

Because you are dieting, you shouldn’t really be drinking alcohol at all! But if you do, it is not recommended to take this or any fat burner at the same time as drinking any sort of alcohol.

Is Lipodrene illegal?

No, this product is not illegal in the United States. The previous version did have 1,3 DMAA in it, but the current version does not. This makes it 100% legal and not banned in the USA.

Should you take it on an empty stomach?

It works the best on an empty stomach, but this is a very potent fat burner, so if you are stimulant sensitive we recommend first taking it with a meal to see how you react to it and access your tolerance.

Will Taking this make you Fail a Drug Test?

It all depends on who is doing the testing and what they are testing for. For example, the military or the NBA are testing for different substances than a blood test for a job. It is a totally legal product in the United States, so it all depends on what they are testing for.

Can you take this while pregnant or breastfeeding?

While Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals doesn’t recommend taking any fat burners or supplements while breastfeeding or while pregnant, this type of question is best for your doctor.

Can you stack this with other supplements?

While you can stack it with almost anything, you should never stack a stimulant-based fat burner with any other product or supplement that has stimulants such as caffeine.

Can this cause diarrhea?

Though rare, some users have issues with the potency of the stimulants in this product. These users normally have issues whenever they take in a large amount of stimulant or caffeine. If you do not, you shouldn’t have to worry about this issue.

My pills are green, I thought they were yellow?

If you have Lipodrene with the green pills, that means you purchased the Lipodrene Elite, which has Coca Leaves and no Ephedra.
