Super HD Powder is a fat-burning supplement made by Cellucor.
It’s designed to assist with fat-loss by increasing energy, raising metabolic rate, and improving fat oxidation.
Cellucor is an American supplement company, founded in 2002.
Caffeine is a common stimulant which increases energy levels and speeds up metabolism.
Even at rest, supplementation with caffeine leads to the body to burn extra calories (1).
Tyrosine is an amino acid with anti-stress properties.
It enables better performance under stress and fatigue, due to its ability to reduce stress hormones (2).
An effective dose is 500-2,000mg.
Rhodiola rosea is a herb, which has similar effects to tyrosine.
The effective dose is 50mg daily.
Green Tea Extract
Tea leaves contain compounds known as green tea catechins.
Studies show that they can boost fat oxidation and improve insulin sensitivity, resulting in enhanced fat-loss (5).
Amla Fruit Extract
Amla is a fruit-bearing plant which is used in traditional Indian medicine.
Studies show that it can significantly reduce blood glucose levels, which leads to improvements in body composition (6).
It is also a strong antioxidant.
Yohimbe Bark Extract
Yohimbe is a tree that contains a compound called Yohimbine.
Yohimbine has been shown to have powerful fat-burning effects, even in fit people (7).
Unfortunately its use is often accompanied by increased anxiety, which can be significant in those with pre-existing issues.
Yohimbine is a regulated substance in Australia and New Zealand.
The Evodia plant and fruit yields a compound which has odd warming effects.
While not precisely a fat-burner, it has been observed to make animals feel hotter (8).
This ingredient may give the feeling that the fat-burner is “working”, but doesn’t actually contribute much to the real result.
Dandelion root is known for its diuretic effects.
This results in rapid loss of water weight, but only provides temporary visual results (9).
The Toothed Clubmoss plant contains a compound called Huperzine-A, which protects acetylcholine being broken down in the brain.
An effective dose is 50-200mcg.

Yohimbe extract can trigger panic attacks in those with existing anxiety issues.
If taken in excessive quantities, the stimulants in this formula can cause a rapid or irregular heartbeat.

- Provides ingredients to cover all aspects of dieting
- Powdered version of the formula allows flexibility of serving sizes
- Multiple flavours available.
- Proprietary blend doesn’t tell us specific ingredient quantities
- Some ingredients just provide placebo effects rather than actual benefits
- Side-effects could be worrying for people with pre-existing anxiety
Super HD powder at first glance is a powerful formula that covers all aspects of fat-loss and dieting. However, it may fall short when it comes to ingredient doses.
The small proprietary blend size suggests that very few (or even none) of the ingredients are present in large enough quantities to be effective.
It could also be argued that two of the ingredients are included for placebo effects rather than solid long-term results, which is somewhat deceptive.
The ingredient list is nice, but of itself does not indicate how effective Super HD Powder will be.
