Hyper Shred vs. Cellucor Super HD is the supplement battle between two cocky fat burners. One of them likes the term “Hyper” while the other prefers “Super” but titles are just words if they can’t prove their function.
Hyper Shred seems to prove its name by adding some of the fanciest ingredients in the industry in one tight serving. We also like the effort it put into its blend names to make each one sound HYPER cool.
Cellucor Super HD also makes use of some pretty names but its formula capitalizes on a “fish” ingredient not many supplements use. Will this be Cellucor’s reason for owning the title of “Super”?
Both supplements make use of a lot of great sounding ingredients but which one of them actually knows what they’re doing? Let’s find out.

Round 1: Formulas
Hyper Shred is looking good with three smart-sounding blends
Hyper Shred takes the name game seriously as seen with the blend names they paid for.
Thermodynamic Interfusion sounds just like something out of a sci-fi film but it’s pretty real and has HYPER awesome ingredients: Caffeine, Synephrine as Advantra-Z, Red Pepper as Capsimax, and Black Pepper as our favorite BioPerine. These four ingredients belong to some of the best fat burners in the industry.
There is some really awesome synergy going on around here. Caffeine and Synephrine make up one hellish fat burning stack on their own so you can just imagine the damage this stack can dish out if you add Capsimax in the mix. Black Pepper is the universal absorption booster and by universal we mean it boosts everything. This one blend can definitely work as an excellent fat burner on its own.
Acti-Tropic Complex seems to be their nootropic blend with ingredients like Bacopa, our #3 Nootropic, DL-Phenylalanine for mood and focus, and Huperzine-A for mental energy and brain health.
Mimetic Composite blend has Banaba Leaf Extract in the form of GlucoHelp and Chromium Chloride for blood sugar balance. And yes, we also don’t have a clue why it’s called Mimetic Composite so let’s just leave it at that.
Cellucor Super HD is all about herbs and peptides
Cellucor’s ThermoSculpting Blend contains Green Tea Extract, our favorite fat burner, Dandelion as a diuretic, and Slimpro Protein Hydrolysates, the premium brand of fish peptides known to effectively manage appetite.
Sensory Impact Blend sounds like some serious stuff is inside but it’s quite the opposite, actually. It has N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosinde or NALT (because that name’s too long, bro), one of our favorite nootropics, Rhodiola as an adaptogen, and Amla for boosting cognition. It also has Clubmoss for Huperzine-A and Rauvolfia as a pain reliever.
Then we have a few odd additions in a nootropic stack. Cayenne is in Capsimax mode, Yohimbe is a great fat burner, Evodia is standardized for evodiamine and is a milder version of Cayenne. These three are all fat burners so it’s either Cellucor had a little mismatch in labeling or they aimed for something they didn’t explain when they added them here.
Those are the two blends but they also have Caffeine which is always a welcome sight in fat burners.
In conclusion of the first round, both supplements made use of some common and not-so-common ingredients all for the sake of removing fat from your skin. One of them picked a better set of ingredients, though, and that one is Hyper Shred.
Cellucor had a great thing going on but we think it sort of ended up hurting itself in its confusion of trying to be more than just a typical fat burner.
Round 1… Hyper Shred Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Both supplements used huge prop blends so we’ll be forced to guesstimate this one, brow. Don’t worry, we’re expert guesstimating all sorts of supplements so these two won’t be difficult to read.
The only clear thing about Hyper Shred is how it has at least 180 mg of Caffeine thanks to its directions. If that’s the case, then Caffeine easily takes up almost half the entire prop blend size and that’s not exactly promising.
What we can safely assume is Hyper Shred getting the right dosages for Synephrine, Red Pepper, and Black Pepper since these ingredients are potent enough to work in small dosages. We can’t exactly guarantee the same thing with their other ingredients specially the nootropics.
Cellucor Super HD isn’t exactly sailing on a bigger boat either. With 15 ingredients and only 660 mg serving, we literally have to assume they won’t be getting more than half the ingredients right.
Looking at the ThermoSculpting blend, the main fat burner of the group, speaks a lot about the dosing. It has Green Tea Extract and Slimpro Protein Hydrolysates and these two require big dosages to function and apparently the only working dose available is Caffeine.
Both fat burners suffered from underdosing but one of them managed to handle it better and for that, this round goes to Hyper Shred. Cellucor Super HD simply had too many ingredients for such a small serving size.
Round 2… Hyper Shred Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
It’s battle between which supplement fairs better in the looks department.
Hyper Shred impresses the judges with premium names like Advantra-Z, Capsimax, and BioPerine. GlucoHelp isn’t something you normally find in a fat burner but it’s premium so it’s a plus. Bacopa is standardized but at 20% only. Like, we want at least 40% to make it worth the addition. Still, these are some good names in a fat burner lineup.
Cellucor Super HD’s best ingredients are Slimpro, NALT, Capsimax, standardized Evodia, and standardized Clubmoss. That’s a lot of fancy ingredients and could surely let Cellucor win this round but then you look at the dosages for each one and you’re suddenly reminded of deflated balloons.
Both supplements have shown they know their stuff when it comes to branding but once again Hyper Shred out guns Cellucor Super HD for matching premium ingredients with decent dosages.
Round 3… Hyper Shred Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Hyper Shred||VS.||Cellucor Super HD|
|1 Bottle (90-day supply)||$31.97||1 Bottle (120 servings)||$69.99|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.36||Price Per Capsule||$0.58|
|Price Per Serving||$0.36||Price Per Serving||$0.58|
Round 4… Hyper Shred Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
It’s a pretty convincing blow out from Hyper Shred and even our past reviews agree. Both fat burners are decent enough but Hyper Shred has better potential than Cellucor Super HD:
- We’re talking 3.7 (Hyper Shred) vs. 2.5 (Cellucor) out of 5 stars.
That gap is the difference between quality and quantity, bro.
Despite Hyper Shred literally owning the battle, Cellucor Super HD is not without some merits. For one, they have a good combination of fat burners and nootropics plus that fish peptide thing might actually bring something new to the table. It has lots of things to make up for but you can always up the dose.
For us, we only have one reason to buy Cellucor Super HD and that’s if Hyper Shred wasn’t available (or any other fat burners for that matter). Hyper Shred isn’t a fat burner that would knock your teeth out but it still works for what it’s worth.
In the Hyper Shred vs. Cellucor Super HD fight, the winner by a LANDSLIDE Decision is…
