Instant Knockout vs Hydroxycut Next Gen

Roar Ambition’s Instant Knockout vs MuscleTech’s Hydroxycut Next Gen

We’ve all known and loved the Instant Knockout fat burner for its amazing effectiveness combined with a good price. But we have competitors that are just as good and can be compared to the former in order to see who’s best. This time around we have the Hydroxycut Next Gen by MuscleTech. So, without any further ado, let the battle begin!

Instant-Knockout-vs-Hydroxycut-Next-Gen


Ingredients

Probably the most important aspect of what makes a fat burner a good one is the amount and dosage of ingredients included into it. Let’s see what ingredients are present in each of the competitors and a brief explanation on what they do:

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

  • Caffeine: A stimulant that increases metabolism and provides energy.
  • Green tea extracts: Contains compounds called catechins that boost metabolism and inherently contains a mild dose of caffeine as well.
  • Cayenne pepper extracts: An ingredient that induces thermogenesis: a process in which your body burns fat by increasing its temperature. Also boosts metabolism.
  • GFT chromium: Another effective ingredient that helps your body metabolize fats into cells.
  • Glucomannan: This appetite suppressant contains a lot of dietary fiber and is scientifically proven to work very well for making you fell full.

Hydroxycut Next Gen Fat Burner

  • Green tea extracts: Contains compounds called catechins that boost metabolism and inherently contains a mild dose of caffeine as well.
  • Caffeine: A stimulant that increases metabolism and provides energy.
  • Green coffee bean extract: Contains high amounts of chlorogenic acid and helps in weight loss in a similar process that cayenne pepper does (thermogenesis).
  • Other untested ingredients of a Chinese origin: Blue skullcap extract and red sage extract.

The Bottom Line

While the Hydroxycut does the job well, it’s proprietary blend and relying on caffeine to do the job doesn’t make it nearly as good as the Instant Knockout fat burner, which wins this round.

Side Effects

Side burners are almost inevitable when dealing with fat burners as even the best ones have some experimental ingredient or a combination of ingredients that can be harmful in some ways. What makes one better than the other is the intensity and the kind of side effects that they have. Sneak a peek at what the Instant Knockout vs Hydroxycut Next Gen fat burner has to offer here:

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

  • Abnormal doses of caffeine can cause insomnia, jitters and restlessness
  • Cayenne pepper can cause stomach irritation
  • Severe problems that only arise out of an abnormal dosage.

Hydroxycut Next Gen Fat Burner

  • Abnormal doses of caffeine can cause insomnia, jitters and restlessness
  • Cayenne pepper can cause stomach irritation
  • Chinese skullcap can potentially cause hypoglycemia by lowering the blood sugar level in some people.
  • Severe problems that only arise out of an abnormal dosage.

The Bottom line

The Instant Knockout fat burner is capable of causing a potentially overwhelming effect due to overconsumption of caffeine but since its dosage is spread evenly throughout the day, users have rarely reported feeling such effects. Hydroxycut next gen, on the other hand, provides 100mg of caffeine in a single pill, which is enough to cause jitters to all except the ones who are highly resistant to caffeine. The Chinese skullcap extract didn’t do the fat burner any favors, either. The Instant Knockout takes this round as well.

Price

While you didn’t require a ton of money to get fit in the good ol’ days, the advent of fat burners, protein supplements and pre-workout supplements has made fitness pricier than ever. So it’s obvious that a cheaper fat burner will be a better buy if its effective enough.

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

One bottle of the instant knockout fat burner costs $59 for 120 capsules which is basically a month’s dosage as Instant Knockout recommends taking 4 pills every day. However, one can get an even better value out of their first few packs if they’re just starting out, as we’ve discussed in another post that taking 4 pills every day if you’ve started taking fat burner pills for the first time can be overwhelming. You can get it for a cheaper rate through multi-box deals but the caveat is that it’s only available on their website.

Hydroxycut Next Gen Fat Burner

The Hydroxycut Next Gen Fat Burner has a very reasonable price tag: with $35.99 per bottle of capsules which you can either buy on the official website or in other online stores like Amazon too.

The Bottom Line

This is the part where the Hydroxycut Next Gen shines: it’s priced at a very lower rate than its competitor, even after you avail for a multi-box deal on the Instant Knockout that brings the price down to ~$46 per bottle.

Brand

While brand recognition isn’t as important as the effectiveness and the ingredient list of a fat burner, a company that’s old and has a history of making good products is obviously considered more reliable than a company that’s either considered sketchy or just started off.

Instant Knockout Fat Burner

Roar Ambition’s Instant Knockout series has been popular even before the consumer-grade product had entered into the market. Earlier it was only formulated to be used by boxers and MMA fighters, who have both testified for the authenticity of the product.

Hydroxycut Next Gen Fat Burner

MuscleTech is no slouch when it comes to having experience in the nutrition industry: It’s actually better in a lot of aspects than Roar Ambition as it has been recommended by numerous athletes, has a long history of ‘being in the game’ and even has a better website than Roar Ambition.

The Bottom Line

While both of them are equally matched up, in terms of brand recognition it’s hard to beat MuscleTech, even if your company’s products are recommended by MMA fighters. Hydroxycut Next Gen wins this round too.

Conclusion

In the end, despite the stats showing that both are equal, we still feel that the Instant Knockout is the superior product, simply because one of the points that the Hydroxycut Next Gen had was due to the brand reputation, which obviously doesn’t always translate to a good product.

However, it is cheaper but if you are ready to spend a bit more to get something that’s much more effective, it doesn’t get any better than the Instant Knockout Fat Burner.
