SuperHD Razor targets fat-to-muscle metabolism for bodybuilders.
SuperHD Water releases water retention for a tight, ripped physique.
And SuperHD Fire, the subject of this review, it, umm… well, it has caffeine! As opposed to the non-stimulant SuperHD formulas, SuperHD Fire takes the thermogenic stimulant route towards fat loss with its daily 2 stage weight-loss formula. And the formula accomplishes this primarily with a hefty 400 mg dose of that sweet, sweet, energizing caffeine.
But that’s not all this product supplies, right? Surely it has more fat burners than just caffeine?
Don’t call me Shirley. And let’s read the SuperHD Fire review to get the full picture here.
About SuperHD Fire
As part of Cellucor’s SuperHD series, SuperHD Fire features a daily 2 stage weight-loss approach to fat burning with its red pill (morning) and orange pill (afternoon) divided servings. However, with SuperHD Fire’s best fat burner ingredients shared by both servings, we have to ask: What’s the point of the 2-stage design? Formula notes:
- Igniter Blend: The red morning pill supplies a caffeinated mix of cayenne and ashwagandha for spicy, Ayurvedic stress relief and appetite control.
- Fuel Blend: SuperHD Fire’s orange afternoon pill provides the same caffeine + cayenne combo, plus an ingredient entirely unique to this formula: DygloFit.
- Proprietary: In typical Cellucor fashion, SuperHD Fire hides the individual ingredient dosages for both pills, providing an ironic lack of HD clarity to this supplement.

SuperHD Fire takes a daily 2-stage approach to fat burns with its morning (red pill) and afternoon (orange pill) fat burner regimen.
The red pill’s plan of attack? Caffeine and Cayenne.
The orange pill’s plan? Caffeine and Cayenne.
Or at least that’s the primary plan for each colored pill. There are a couple ingredients unique to each formula, but are they actually effective at burning fat? Let’s check them out.
SuperHD Fire Review: Ingredients
Part one and part two of SuperHD Fire’s daily 2-stage weight-loss formula are as follows:
SuperHD Fire Igniter Blend (Red Pill)
Taken once in the morning daily, the proprietary SuperHD Fire Igniter Blend supplies the following fat burner ingredients:
Caffeine Anhydrous (as ZumXR®) – SuperHD Fire Igniter Blend supplies both the ZumXR brand of caffeine anhydrous in addition to regular caffeine anhydrous for a cumulative 250 mg caffeine. While it’s just caffeine, it’s also a reliable thermogenesis booster, topping our BIG List of Fat Burners at the #2 spot.
Ashwagandha (as Sensoril®) – Typically supplemented for testosterone and strength gains, sometimes for nootropic anxiety reduction as well, Ashwagandha may also help reduce fat levels by ameliorating the negative effects of stress.
Cayenne (as Capsimax®) – One of the best fat burner ingredients, cayenne is a fiery hot spice for thermogenesis and appetite control. SuperHD Fire supplies the popular Capsimax cayenne extract for capsaicin.
SuperHD Fire Fuel Blend (Orange Pill)
Taken once in the afternoon daily, the proprietary SuperHD Fire Fuel Blend essentially stacks more caffeine and more cayenne extract, in addition to:
Dichrostachys glomerata (as DygloFit™) – Seemingly found only in this formula, DygloFit is a proprietary, “all natural, GRAS-affirmed, standardized extract of Dichrostachys glomerata fruit.” Via highly active polyphenols, DygloFit is purported to help healthy weight management and a thermogenic metabolism.
Huperzia serrata Extract – An interesting addition here, Huperzine-A is usually supplemented for cognitive health reasons. Cellucor claims to use it for “enhanced energy and focus.”
Operating as a two-for-one fat burner formula, SuperHD Fire splits its fat burning design into two daily servings, presumably for wide, full-day coverage. It’s a unique design and makes intuitive sense: two daily servings spread out are better than one large serving taken all at once.
Cellucor illustrates this daily 2 stage plan as follows:
Makes enough sense …but we have to wonder if the daily 2 stage design was all that necessary to begin with. After all, the best fat burner ingredients, Caffeine and Cayenne, are shared by both formulas, whereas Ashwagandha (red pill) and Huperzine-A (orange pill) are better for cognitive health than fat loss.
Not that we’re against cognitive boosters. Yet, if fat burning is your ultimate goal here, you may do better by seeking out a caffeinated, cayenne-powered fat burner supplement with a more focused approach to fat burning — e.g., one that also carries green tea extract, HCA, CGA, etc.
Additionally, 400 mg cumulative caffeine is on the high end here, taking up a large portion of these proprietary blends. Caffeine’s an awesome fat burner. But Cellucor seems to be relying on it too much here. Your best hope is for DygloFit to do an exceptional job at burning fat; otherwise, this fat burner’s just an over-hyped caffeine pill.
Excuse me: pills.
SuperHD Fire Benefits
Cellucor promises the following health benefits with SuperHD Fire: Increased Fat Metabolism, Improved Cognitive Performance, and Better Appetite Control.
Funny enough, these benefits are all accomplished by the base caffeine + cayenne combo in SuperHD Fire’s two-for-one formula design. However, given that SuperHD Fire is often listed alongside SuperHD Razor and SuperHD Water, it seems Cellucor intends for you to stack this SuperHD product with the rest for the best SuperHD results.
Who Takes It?
“Get Up and Go” Morning People. If you’re not a morning person, you’re not a SuperHD Fire person. Unless you prefer your caffeine intake keeping you up through the night, this is a fat burner supplement best taken for early workers and bodybuilders.
Any Side Effects?
None reported. At least, the customer reviews seem to indicate no significant risk of side effects. However, caffeine sensitive users should take SuperHD Fire with caution, especially while taking the red pill, which has 100 mg more caffeine than the orange pill. As far as the other fat burners go, SuperHD Fire is a generally safe supplement.
SuperHD Fire Review Summary
- Best5 Favs. Caffeine and cayenne top our list for good reason: They work.
- Premium Extracts. Only SuperHD Fire seems to supply DygloFit, too.
- Nootropic. Ashwagandha and Huperzine-A notch a cognitive enhancing edge to SuperHD Fire’s acute bursts of caffeinated focus.
- Gimmicky. The two-in-one design could be simplified to one good fat burner instead.
- Proprietary. Cellucor hides the individual ingredient dosages, with exception to caffeine.
- Junky Caps. Cellucor capsules are easy to identify by their unnecessary colors and additives.
- Expensive. For these ingredients, that’s a heavy price tag. Especially if you plan on stacking this product with the other SuperHD formulas.

Final Word on SuperHD Fire
On paper, SuperHD Fire reads like an impressive, unique fat burner supplement, with its premium herbal extracts and 2-stage weight loss design. However, in execution, SuperHD Fire seems needlessly unfocused and gimmicky, spreading its focus away from fat burning, much to the chagrin of users who …well, want to burn fat. Is it a bad fat burner? No. Is it the best? Noooo. It sits about average on our Best5 review rating.
