Shred HDX is a nutritional supplement that the sellers say will help you burn fat faster, boost your metabolism, help you lose weight, and increase energy both in and out of the bedroom. They claim Shred HDX is a revolutionary formula with proven, effective ingredients, that will “form a SYNERGY that will promote an undeniable outcome” (whatever that means). They state Shred HDX is high quality and if you do not see results within 90 days they’ll give you your money back, no questions asked.
The Shred HDX Ingredients
Shred HDX says it contains “therapeutic doses” of the following ingredients that they claim are scientifically proven to work and these are the benefits they list:
- Yohimbine – an aphrodisiac, antioxidant, and mild stimulant
- Eurycoma Longifolia (aka Tongkat Ali) – natural testosterone booster
- Green Tea – increases metabolism and helps with weight loss
- Hordenine – appetite surpressant
- Epimedium Extract – increase energy, blood flow
- Synephrine – enhances adrenaline stimulation, promotes weight loss
- Garcina Cambogia (aka Malabar tamarind) – the rind of this fruit is a “hot” ingredient in many weight loss products as they claim is a natural fat burner
The question is, do any of these work as promised? Generally speaking, there is little to no scientific evidence that they do. It should also be noted that Synephrine is banned in Canada. Shred HDX does point to a few scientific studies on their website, but these involve a very small number of participants.
Also, the fine print at the bottom states: “Representations regarding the efficacy and safety of our products have not been scientifically substantiated or evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.” This translates to: the FDA has not reviewed Shred HDX to see if it’s safe for you to take or whether it will work.
The Shred HDX Pitch
Shred HDX hopes to impress you with the pictures of men with ripped pectoral muscles, a promise of high-quality products, and a tempting trial offer. These guys do look good, but they most likely spent years in the gym developing those bods and are merely stock photos.
They state due to their “strict standard” this trial is limited to 200 per day. This is a common ploy many advertisers use to add urgency and hype so you’ll think you will miss out.
In addition “Made in the USA” and “Clinically Tested” seals are designed to add polish to the appeal without offering any specifics.
The Shred HDX Trial
Shred HDX is sold in a special trial offer – but note that they don’t use the word “free.” After you fill out the form, they promise they will send you a 14-day package of Shred HDX for just $3.95 in shipping.
However, there is a lot of fine print in the terms and conditions.
- The 14-day trial starts from date of order not receipt.
- On the 15th day you will be charged $86.90
- You will be automatically enrolled in a reshipment program every 30 days and billed another $86.90
- If you return Shred HDX, you will be billed $25 per bottle in “re-stocking fees.”
In spite of the claim of a 90-day no-questions-asked money back guarantee listed on the home page, we could find no wording verifying this in the fine print. We spoke with a customer service representative who took our number and promised to call us back. (We’re still waiting.)
Bottom Line: Is Shred HDX a Scam?
In spite of the fact that they are generally complying with the FDA regulations regarding herbal supplements, we have some questions and concerns about Shred HDX. The terms and conditions are long and confusing and customer service was no help. While they state Shred HDX is a high-quality product without fillers or “junk,” they list no outside lab for quality control.
As to the ingredients themselves, there are some indications that they may work, although many of them also have side effects. They also do not list the amount contained in each pill. If you are interested in researching further, we suggest looking the ingredients up on a site like WebMD which offers a non-biased assessment as to their effectiveness or simply talking to your doctor and ask them what they think.
Tip: if you are looking to lose weight and boost energy, we suggest a healthy diet and regular exercise.
