Over the years, OxyELITE has been one of the top-selling weight loss supplements. It’s topped the charts on nearly every single site it’s been sold at, for two simple reasons: It works like crazy and it makes you feel like a billion dollars.
We’re yet to get our hands on it (remember, this site is not run by USPLabs), but looking at the ingredients, it’s shaping up to be absolutely incredible.
Since I’m a geek for the ingredients and research studies behind them, let’s have at it. Quickly, you’ll see that this is a novel and incredibly-formulated natural fat burner that is quite thermogenic, just like the original.
The New OxyELITE Pro Ingredients
First, it’s important to note what’s NOT in here — DMAA, or 1,3 Dimethylamylamine HCl. We discuss this at the bottom of the page.
So what replaces it?
There is now 135mg of caffeine in every capsule. The original OEP had 110mg – so this extra 25mg is going to give a bit of extra kick throughout the day — you will definitely ‘feel’ it. For this reason, we recommend you start at the recommended dosage of 1 capsule first thing in the AM before breakfast, and 1 capsule 8 hours later on in the day.
After you’ve assessed, you can eventually move up to 2 capsules in the morning, 1 capsule in the afternoon 8 hours later.
Overall, a fat burner simply needs caffeine to “get the engine started”. While it’s shown to be a fat-burning agent on its own, it’s not the strongest one. Instead, it’s most importantly used to get the fat-burning engine started, boost your metabolism and energy output, and is a stimulant that makes things move all around faster. Combined with the other fat-burning ingredients, it’s a great combo.
Bauhinia Purpurea L. (Leaf And Pod) Extract
This ingredient is a holdover from the original OxyELITE, and on both products it is the most abundant extract. Most people like OEP more than any other thermogenic fat burner, and this is the main reason why.
Why’s it so good? Because this indirectly works on the T3 and T4 thyroid hormones, helping your thyroid to regulate your metabolism better. Caffeine doesn’t do it for everyone – some people need a slight kick in the metabolic processes too. It also possesses activity good for keeping blood sugar under control.
The original version worked very well because it helped with appetite suppression. Some people don’t want this, but most do. It was likely mostly from the DMAA, so that had to be replaced.
This is the replacement. From what I’ve learned, Aegeline helps with histamine release. You might recognize that from allergy commercials, but histamine also acts to regulate the appetite!
Appetite problem possibly solved – Can’t wait to try!
Norcoclaurine HCl / Higenamine
Fascinating, awesome little stimulant here for the extra kick of fat burn, endurance, and a dash of euphoria. We studied it intensely in Jack3d Micro, where you can read in gory detail what norcoclaurine HCl does in Jack3d Micro.
The short story is that it’s incredibly safe, yet is a great beta-1 and beta-2 adrenergic agonist[4,5].
The beta-1 part helps you boost your heart rate, and the beta-2 part helps you burn bodyfat (via the mechanism of lipolysis). This means fatty acids – triglycerides – get released from your fat cells. Combine that with your workout, great diet, and the other ingredients in the new OEP, and you will expend them as energy… meaning you burn body fat!
It also helps “open up your lungs” a bit, just like DMAA did, and is great for endurance. Jack3d Micro has it, but the pumps are so big that it’s not the absolute best for long endurance sports. So I’m excited to try the new OEP on my next long cardio session or even a race to get the higenamine without the freakish Jack3d Micro muscle pumps!
Hemerocallis Fulva (Flower) Heat Concentrated Extract
Another new natural flower exract you probably haven’t heard of. It works as both an antioxidant and “lipid peroxidator”, meaning that it’s going to attack lipids/fats by literally stealing electrons from your fats, effectively putting them on the move and lining them up for your destruction!!!
Another study showed it having fat-burning prowess by AMPLIFYING your existing cAMP energy-producing and fat-burning reactions. This is essentially going to mix with the other ingredients to amplify fat burning – but we still want you to get your butt into the gym and eat clean!
Yohimbe (Pausinystalia Johimbe) (Bark) Extract (AlphaShred™)
Last, but definitely not least, is Yohimbe. A veteran to the fat burning world, the version of this one is under the trade name of AlphaShred, which I can’t find anything out about (will update if I find out what they’re extracting for).
But there are tons of excellent research studies done on all sorts of extracts of yohimbe, and each one leads to one conclusion – yohimbe burns fat. I like to point to study  because it’s referenced by nearly 100 other peer-reviewed weight-loss studies – legit and well-done experiment showing how incredible Yohimbe is!
I’ll preface this by saying that I have NOT yet tried it, but am extremely excited to do so.
Why the Updated OxyELITE Pro?
As you are likely aware by now, a main ingredient in both the original OxyELITE Pro and the original Jack3d was DMAA, or 1,3 Dimethylamylamine HCl. While we maintain that DMAA is safe when used properly by healthy individuals, and it is still legal in the US, it has however been banned in several other countries.
That means that Jack3d and OEP also got banned in those countries. So it was time to make a substitute. Jack3d Micro was the substitute for the OG Jack3d, and the reformulated OxyELITE Pro looks to be a replacement for the OG OEP.
