OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder Review
Made by USPLabs, OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder claims to burn fat by stimulating thermogenesis.
This product is intriguing because it comes from such a well-known company. So, I decided to help consumers make an informed decision about it.
Here’s what my research shows about OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder’s safety, effectiveness, and value…
Started in 2006, USPLabs is an easily-recognizable name in the supplement industry. Another USPLabs supplement, Jack3d, was voted the “Best Pre-Workout” by Bodybuilding.com. OxyElite Pro is also a popular weight loss pill from USPLabs.
Recently, the company released OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder. It’s a weight loss product like OxyElite Pro, but the 2 products actually have very little in common.
USPLabs is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and has an A+ rating. Here are the reasons:
• The company has been in business for more than 3 years
• Very few complaints were filed in the last 3 years
• The company resolved the complaints
• BBB found sufficient company background information
These are the active ingredients in OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder:
Choline bitartrate is essential for brain health. It may treat Alzheimer’s disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and mood swings. Some people also believe choline bitartrate enhances fat burn and weight loss.
Caffeine anhydrous (125 mg) stimulates the central nervous system to increase energy and improve alertness. It’s also a popular thermogenic. Thermogenesis is a heat production process, which causes the body to burn more calories.
Aegeline supposedly influences beta-3 receptors, which are mostly found in fat tissue. These receptors break down fat cells, burn fat, and increase thermogenesis.
Norcoclaurine HCI or higenamine is claimed to be DMAA’s replacement by USPLabs. The company says it induces thermogenesis and creates “laser-like focus.”
Yohimbe extract is supposed to enhance workout performance by improving focus and increasing energy. Supplement companies also claim it burns fat and speeds weight loss results.
L-carnitine-tartrate is a delivery agent. It transports fatty acids to cells for metabolism. As a result, L-carnitine-tartrate aids energy production. There are also claims that it promotes weight loss.
(Z)-N-(2-hydroxyethyl)octadec-9-enamide doesn’t come with much background information. All I could find is that it supposedly increases lipolysis — the breakdown and burn of fat cells.
Eriobotrya japonica is the scientific name for the loquat fruit. It may reduce vomiting and thirst or act as a sedative.
Is There Research to Back the Formula?
The only study I found involving norcoclaurine HCI proved it aids breathing in animals. For example, one study showed norcoclaurine HCI eases asthma symptoms in Guinea pigs.
Yohimbe was proven to reduce body fat, but it had no effect on muscle mass or workout performance.
Research does not prove conclusively that L-carnitine-tartrate promotes weight loss. In one study, rats were fed a high-fat diet and L-carnitine-tartrate, but it didn’t stop weight gain or cause weight loss.
The other ingredients are not supported by research that proves they burn fat, increase energy, or enhance weight loss in people.
USPLabs uses a proprietary blend with the total dosage 1,058.5 mg. The only individual dosage shown is for caffeine (125 mg).
To be safe and effective, OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder needs safe, effective dosages. 125 mg caffeine is an approved amount, but what about the other dosages?
Since USPLabs keep them hidden, consumers are kept in the dark. They are unable to determine how safe and effective OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder is before buying it.
Choline bitartrate, caffeine anhydrous, and L-carnitine-tartrate are safe for most people. However, the safety also depends on what dosages are used.
These ingredients lack research proving they are safe:
• Norcoclaurine HCI
• Yohimbe extract
• Eriobotrya japonica
There are good reasons to believe yohimbe extract is not safe. Many users report these side effects after taking the stimulant:
• High blood pressure
• Racing heartbeat
• Nausea and vomiting
• Heart attack
• Kidney failure
WebMD.com says taking dosages larger than 100 mg dramatically increases the risk for side effects and even death. USPLabs does not disclose how much yohimbe is used.
What Do Users Reviews Say?
One user gave OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder a 5-star rating on NutraPlanet.com. But there are no other user reviews or ratings online.

Should You Buy OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder?
OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder contains a few effective weight loss ingredients. But most ingredients are not backed by research, so they may be effective or ineffective. There’s no way to know for sure.
The caffeine dosage is safe and effective, but I don’t know if the other dosages are. For some reason, USPLabs chooses to hide the amounts from consumers.
Yohimbe is possibly unsafe; especially in dosages larger than 100 mg.
OxyElite Pro Super Thermo Powder is affordable, but I don’t recommend buying it. There are many affordable weight loss pills with safer, more effective formulas to choose from instead.
