Cellucor Super HD New Formula – Updated Ingredients

Cellucor Super HD New Formula

The new formula of Super HD is out for 2015!

The new G4 (4th Generation) series of supplements is now out from Cellucor, and they’ve updated one of the world’s most popular fat burners with a Super HD New Formula for 2015.

What’s new in the new Super HD?

The most major change is the addition of Slimpro fish protein hydrolysates to the ThermoScuplting Blend. Soon we will dig up research on this to determine what it all means.

Outside of that, Super HD from one proprietary formula to two, each containing 250mg in each capsule. Outside of that remains 160mg of caffeine, bringing the capsule’s total to 660mg ingredients – relatively large as always!

Now for the full ingredient discussion:

  • Caffeine Anhydrous: 160mg

    Caffeine is the most widely used drug in the world for a reason…

    It improves both physical and mental performance significantly.[1,2]

    We widely consider caffeine the kickstarter in fat burners, but it doesn’t do a whole lot of fat burning itself. That’s why the other ingredients are included.

  • SuperHD ThermoSculpting Blend (250mg)

    • Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) leaf extract

      Green tea leaf extract is rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

      EGCG has been shown to decrease body fat in human subjects, through it’s ability to ignite thermogenesis and enhance fat oxidation.[3,4]

    • Slimpro® Protein Hydrolysates of Blue Whiting (Micromesistius poutassou)

      SlimPro® is a BCAA enriched fish peptide derived from the Northern Blue Whiting.

      It’s been shown to act as a potent appetite suppressant.[5,6] But there’s additional fat burning potential as well:


      Can this ingredient burn more fat via the GLP-1 pathway? Research looks promising but not proven

      We all know the health benefits of eating fish and getting high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, but there’s more at play here, since we typically need more omega-3’s than would be available here. This is more about

      A promising GLP-1 stimulator, but more data needed

      It seems that it stimulates GLP-1 better than any other protein, which means that it should actually work quite well. The research is a bit sparse, though, and it was done in vitro (not in vivo, or in real life), so for now we’re taking it with a grain of salt, but it looks extremely promising.

      We’ll definitely need more information on Slimpro ingredient – stay tuned for updates! Also note that the new CLK formula is going to have it as well.

    • Dandelion root extract

      We all know dandelion as a weed…but few know of it’s fat loss benefits.[7]

      Take a look:

      • It improves gut health by acting as a prebiotic to six probiotics
      • It enhances digestion
      • It has a direct impact on fat loss and inflammation

      Super HD is one of the few fat burners to utilize this powerful ingredient.

  • SuperHD Sensory Impact Blend (250mg)

    • N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine

      Tyrosine is an amino acid that’s been proven to be extremely beneficial for counteracting the negative side effects of stress.

      It improves cognitive performance in stressful situations to such a degree that it’s undergone extensive research for military application.[8,9]

    • Rhodiola (Rhodiola rosea) root extract

      Rhodiola Rosea

      Rhodiola Rosea: Our favorite feel-good herb with some additional weight loss properties

      Rhodiola rosea is yet another supplement that’s been evaluated for military application, and is easily our favorite herb on this site due to its adaptogenic properties.

      One study on 161 cadets showed a pronounced anti-fatigue effect from the ingredient after just a single dose.[10]

      Another benefit rhodiola has to offer is it’s ability to act as an appetite suppressant.[11]

    • Amla fruit extract

      It’s been said that amla is possible the most important medicinal plant in the traditional Indian system of medicine, Ayurveda.[12]

      It offers numerous benefits including it’s abilities to act as an anti-inflammatory and prevent protein wasting.[13]

    • Yohimbe (Pausinystalia yohimbe) bark extract

      Yohimbe can help you shed fat through three different mechanisms.[14,15]

      • It ignites thermogenesis
      • It improves metabolic function
      • It suppresses hunger and cravings, especially when taken on an empty stomach.

      Yohimbe also acts as a stimulant to some degree. It’s mechanism of action is as an alpha-2 receptor blocker, which means it actually helps prevent fat storage.

    • Capsimax® Cayenne (Capsicum annuum)


      Capsimax is an encapsulated cayenne pepper extract that prevents the side effects of taking capsaicin directly (like heartburn)

      One of the most prominent components in cayenne is called capsaicin.

      Here’s what it has to offer:[16]

      • It suppresses appetite
      • It kickstarts thermogenesis
      • It aids in lipolysis

      The one set back is, it’s HOT…if you don’t fare well with spicy things, this can be a problem.

      Cellucor is using Capsimax® to avoid this issue – Capsimax® uses an award winning beadlet encapsulation technology to deliver all of the benefits, without the burn.

    • Evodia rutaecarpa fruit extract (standardized for Evodiamine)

      Evodiamine is a powerful fat burning agent, which works through similar pathways to that of capsaicin – providing comparable benefits.[17]

      One of the key differences is that evodiamine inhibits adipocyte differentiation, or the expansion of fat cells.[18]

    • Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzia serrata) aerial parts extract (standardized for Huperzine A)

      Toothed clubmoss aka huperzia serrata, contains the active compound huperzine A.

      Huperzine A is an extraordinary nootropic (brain enhancer) which packs quite the punch.[19]

      The problem is, it’s expensive, a lot of companies cut corners…

      No need to worry about that with Super HD though, Cellucor is using a source of huperzia serrata that’s been standardized for huperzine content.

    • Rauwolfia vomitoria root bark extract

      Rauwolfia contains rauwolscine, aka alpha-yohimbine.[20]

      It’s name isn’t a coincidence, it’s actually a part of the yohimbe “family,” and it provides similar benefits.[21]

      This is an ingredient where we’re happy it’s the last one – alpha yohimbine is strong and you don’t need much at all to get the fat blocking effects.

  • Supporting B Vitamins:

    • Niacin – 10mg (50%)

    • Vitamin B6 – 3mg (150%)

    • Vitamin B12 – 250mcg (4167%)

From the looks of it, Super HD’s placing in our best fat burner buyer’s guide will stay put – this seems to be a great follow-up.

The release schedule

Assuming that this will have the same release schedule as the new C4 Formula (also released today), we expect it to go like this:

  • December 2014: GNC Exclusive only
  • January 2014: BB.com gets it in stock
  • Afterward: Everyone else gets it.

The issue with the PricePlow Price Comparisons

Here on PricePlow, we offer price comparisons so that you can save money when buying. The problem is that Super HD isn’t changing its name, so the new products will be rolled in and compared with the old ones.

So if you want to try the new formula, make sure you get it from a store that has it in stock. Check their image, their ingredients, and when in doubt, ask them. All price comparisons are on our official Cellucor Super HD page. But until Februrary or so, it will only be GNC and then BB.com.

You can see the price comparisons below, and sign up for some price drop alert notifications to be emailed when more stores start pulling the prices down!
