Hi Tech HydroxyElite versus USPLabs OxyElite Pro
Here at MySupplementStore.com, we have had a ton of questions about HydroxyElite from Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals. Why? Because all over online and even from Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals themselves, they compare this product vs OxyElite Pro from USPLabs. I mean, even if you look at the bottle itself, it looks a lot like the original OxyElite Pro. But let's dive into the similarities and differences between these two products.
The History of OxyElite Pro?
A few years ago this was the fat burner of all fat burners. It was strong, effective and very potent. USPLabs was at it's highest point having this and then having their pre-workout supplement Jack3d on top of the market. Why did people love both of these products? Because of 1,3 DMAA. This was also known as 1 3 dimethylamylamine.
What is 1 3 Dimethylamylamine?
This is an ingredient that provides some amazing benefits. It is a very powerful stimulant that can help with weight loss, energy and focus. Much more powerful than anything that has ever been released. And this is why the governement had the ingredient on their radar. But for a few years it enjoyed being at the top and being the most popular stimulant for users.
So What Happened?
Eventually the government stepped in and warned companies like USPLabs and others to stop using 1,3 DMAA. It was never banned or made illegal, but when the government threatens you, you usually listen. Companies started removing the ingredient from their fat burners, energy supplements and pre-workout supplements. This was the same for OxyElite Pro. They came out with different formulas and versions, but nothing was ever as strong as the original...until now with HydroxyElite.
Now there have been other alternatives that have come out since that product was removed from the market, but nothing as strong. If I recall, they first just removed it without saying anything, then turned it to an Advanced Formula, then back to 'Original' which wasn't really the original. They just never could replace that product, but at least they tried! I think the most recent from USPLabs is EpiBurn Pro, but it doesn't have 1,3 DMAA so it's just not going to give you the same effects as the original formula would have.
When companies started dropping 1,3 DMAA, they needed another stimulant that could replace it. What they came up with was AMP Citrate. It was very close to 1,3 DMAA, but they needed more of it to get the same effects. But it worked...people loved Amp Citrate. One thing people noticed is that the effects dimished after a couple of uses, so you would need a short break from it more often. But like 1,3 DMAA, the government started to warn companies about the use of AMP Citrate. So now, most companies no longer use AMP Citrate in their products. What's next...who knows...but welcome Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals!
Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals Releases HydroxyElite
One company decided to go up against the government last year and won. This company was Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals. Remember 1,3 DMAA was never banned. And now that Hi Tech is winning, they started releasing the ingredient back into their products. Not only HydroxyElite, but all of their fat burners and pre-workout supplements, even some of their BCAA products have 1,3 DMAA in them! It's back in full...but you have to buy it from them for now. They pretty much have the market for it cornered.
So why doesn't USPLabs come out with the original OxyElite Pro again? Well they just don't have the money to go against the governement like Hi Tech Pharmaceuticals does. It's not worth the risk for them.
HydroxyElite Vs. OxyElite Pro
Now to the original topic, how are these two products comparable. How are they different. First, the bottles are very similar. Hi Tech did this on purpose. They not only want new customers, but they want to go after those users of OxyElite Pro, and why not. This product is almost identical! Why not totally identical?...because Hi Tech went and improved upon the original.
Benefits & Results
- Fat Loss
- Increased Focus
- Appetite Suppression (just HydroxyElite)
- All Day Energy
- Mood Improvement
Labels & Ingredients
As you can see below, the ingredients are almost identical in HydroxyElite and OxyElite Pro. The only real difference you see on the label is that HydroxyElite Pro added Garcinia Cambogia to their formula, which is actually an improvement. This is a great ingredient that has some nice appetite suppressant benefits, which is perfect for a fat loss supplement. The only other thing that is in question is due to both being proprietary blends. They are both identical amounts, but you really don't know how much of each ingredient is in each. It might be the same, it could be way off...we really will never know.
So if this hasn't convinced you to give HydroxyElite a try, I am not sure what will! This is the absolute closest clone you will find. They did this one so well, Hi Tech even came out with Jack3d..which is almost the identical formula to USPLabs Jack3d!
But I Want the Original OxyElite Pro!
Well you are probably out of luck. You might be able to find some expired bottles on eBay or Craigslist, but do you really want to risk it? And you are probably going to pay a fortune for it too. You can purchase HydroxyElite Pro right here for just $34.95, plus you get from shipping if you spend over $50. A good deal for a potent fat burner with 1,3 DMAA.
My Personal Review
Now I have been lifting and in the industry for a very long time. I have tried Hydroxyelite and the original OxyElite Pro. It's been awhile since I took OxyElite Pro, but I do remember how strong it was and the focus. From what I can remember, the HydroxyElite gave me these same results. I actually use it right now stacked with a non-stimulant pre-workout. They work very well together pre-workout. From energy to the focus, it works great. I don't have a pill of each to compare side by side, but for me, HydroxyElite is the closest thing to OxyElite Pro that has come out since it was taken off the market.
