Whey and Casein Proteins
Both whey and casein are proteins that are found in cow’s milk.
They’re both great for muscle repair and growth (1, 2), but whey is absorbed very quickly, while casein is well-known for being much more slowly absorbed.
A mixture of both allows a steady release of amino acids throughout the day.
L-carnitine is an amino-acid derivative that is used in the metabolism of energy.
It’s effective for fat-burning in those that have a deficiency in L-carnitine, but might not have significant effects in the general population.
It is good for improving insulin sensitivity and lowering blood sugar levels, however mass (3).
A standard dose is 500-2,000mg.
Lactase is a digestive enzyme that that helps the body break down and absorb lactose, the natural sugar found in milk.
This can help with any upsetting of the stomach that some people experience from dairy products.
Digestive enzymes are molecules that help with the breakdown and absorption of food.
Protease, in particular, helps in the breakdown of proteins, which may be useful for the absorption of the large protein dose in Hydroxyburn Lean 5.
Lactase can assist those with milk digestion issues caused by lactose.
Who Takes It?

Excess protein consumption can worsen an existing kidney or liver condition.
- Added L-carnitine for fat-loss
- Digestive enzymes.
- L-carnitine dose is relatively small
- No other fat-loss ingredients.
Hydroxyburn Lean 5 looks like a great protein powder, but doesn’t live up to the fat-burning expectations given by its name.
It provides a decent dose of fast- and slow- absorbing proteins, but only contains one fat-loss ingredient, which is dosed rather low.
Don’t expect to see dramatic weight-loss effects with this formula.
