Hydroxycut Next Gen Non-Stim by MuscleTech

MuscleTech Hydroxycut Next Gen Non-Stim

MuscleTech unveils yet another entry in the the long line of Hydroxycut fat burners. This one is part of the Next Gen line that is a non-stimulant version.

MuscleTech knows how to ride a golden goose for all its worth.

The company has made its living off the incredibly popular Hydroxycut series of thermogenic fat burners… and they don’t show any signs of letting off the reigns!

Already this year we’ve seen MuscleTech release Hydroxycut Black Onyx Non-Stimulant and Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen. Recently, the brand announced the release of two additional products to the Hydroxycut line: Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen Accelerator and Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen Non-Stimulant, which we’ll cover today.

This is slated to hit the market either very late in 2015 or early in 2016, as MuscleTech continues to attack the market to reclaim the title of best fat burner around.

How’s this one different? We’ll get into the breakdown below, but first make sure to check the best deal and sign up for price drop alerts from PricePlow:

Hydroxycut Hardcore Next Gen Non-Stimulant Ingredients

While the Black Onyx Non-Stim fat burner consisted mainly of herbal extracts to aid in weight loss, the Next Gen Non-Stim edition relies predominantly on fruit extracts in addition to one of our least favorite ingredients found in a bunch of fat burners:

  • Robusta Coffee Blend (400mg)

    MuscleTech Hydroxycut Next Gen Non-Stim Ingredients

    Hydroxycut Next Gen Non-Stim uses a combination of herbal and fruit extracts to assist in weight loss. Does it actually work?

    We’ve seen this ingredient before in MuscleTech’s recently released Black Onyx Non-Stim fat burner. It’s your old friend Green Coffee Bean Extract. Apparently MT wisened up to the fact that GCBE isn’t really the headline grabbing ingredient it used to be and has since given it the much more exotic name of Robusta Coffee Blend.

    Names can change, but the science doesn’t surrounding this ingredient. The studies proving GCBE as a weight loss wonder have since been redacted due to several flaws in the trials.[1]

    However, if you want help lowering your blood pressure, the chlorogenic acids in GCBE can do wonders.[2]

    Now let’s see what we can do for weight loss

  • Black Ginger Root (100mg)

    Black Ginger has long been used for promoting overall health as well as a libido enhancing agent. While health and sexual enhancement are all well and good, this is a fat burner after all and not a libido-booster.

    A recent study demonstrates that Black Ginger enhances energy metabolism in myocytes (muscle cells).[3] Better energy production helps prevent metabolic syndromes including diabetes and lipidemia, according to the authors of the same study.

  • Schisandra Chinensis (75mg)

    A fruit cultivated from the Chinese Magnolia Vine, Schisandra Chinensis has traditionally been used in Ancient Chinese medicine for the treatment of various respiratory ailments.

    Schisandra is a rather potent adaptogen that helps the body reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety when dealing with adverse circumstances.[4] Another potential benefit of this ancient fruit is its ability to act as a vasodilator and increase blood flow.[5]

    Dieting can be mentally draining having schisandra may help it feel just a little less stressful at times.

  • Black Currant Extract (50mg)

    Pairing Amino Build with Hydroxycut Non-Stim will help carry you during those long hours in between meals with little damage to your caloric budget.

    Black Currant is a plant whose leaves, roots, and fruits have been used in the synthesis of a number of medicines to boost immunity, alleviate bladder stones, and improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.

    Recent research surrounding Black Currant demonstrates it may reduce muscle damage and inflammation after bouts of high intensity exercise.[6] Animal studies using black currant extracts indicate it can attenuate weight gain and improve glucose metabolism.[7]

    While this sounds promising, let’s see how it fares when used in human trials.

  • Ophiopogon Extract (25mg)

    Another ingredient common to Chinese Medicine, Ophiopogon Extract, a.k.a. Dragon’s Beard, comes from the root of the Ophiopogon japonicus tree. Traditionally it’s been used alleviate inflammation and cardiovascular complications.[8]

    What purpose does this serve in a fat-burner though? According to research conducted in 2013, obese individuals orally supplementing with Ophiopogon Extract for 2 weeks experienced significant weight loss as well as a decrease in the amount of adipose tissue (fat mass).[9]

    This could be the new stimulant-free ingredient that MuscleTech has a lot of hopes on. They’ve tested other products with it, and clearly it made the grade!

  • Amla Extract (20mg)

    MuscleTech Lindi Carter

    Ingredients in Hydroxycut help mitigate glucose spikes and store it where they need to be in your muscles and not in fat, so you can get a good looking pair of legs like MT Athlete and mom Lindi Carter.

    Amla is another ayurvedic herb, this one coming from Indian healing methods though. Usually, it’s given to enhance vitality and cognition in additional to promoting longevity.

    When studied for its impact on weight loss and obesity, Amla increases glucose uptake into adipocytes (fat cells).[10] Furthermore, supplementing with Amla has been shown to reduce postprandial glucose as well as fasting glucose levels.[11]


Each bottle of the Hydroxycut contains a massive 150 capsules. This yields 50 servings in all, since each serving recommended by MT is 3 capsules.

Wrap Up

MuscleTech adds yet another serving of Hydroxycut to its already overloaded lineup. The big question is, with all these different versions floating around, is there really a “best” version or someway to figure out which one is “ideal” for an individual’s circumstances?

This is the version that will get the most distribution, though. The SX-7 and Black Onyx series don’t get out to every store, but as part of the Next Gen line, it sure will!

Some sort of guide would be helpful to individuals who choose to spend their money on these products. However, we have to wonder, how “helpful” these non-stim fat burners really are when it comes to melting away the fat compared to the competition? It might just come down to how well this Ophiopogon really works!
