Hydroxycut LeanX is a fat-burner which appears to focus more on the mental side of things while dieting.
It combines a couple of fat-loss ingredients with a range of brain-boosting compounds, which are likely to improve your dieting experience, without stimulants.
The fat-burning ingredients themselves, however, are somewhat weak compared to those found in previous hydroxycut products.
A positive to this, however, is that this LeanX version will not interfere with sleep, and allows more freedom to be combined with other stimulant-containing supplements.
