Hydroxycut has played a major role in the supplement world. Their marketing strategies have been so flexible that its managed to target multiple age groups that have spanned decades. Now, they are targeting the Sensa crowd by releasing hydroxycut sprinkles. Due to the huge success of Sensa it’s no wonder they have released this pill-less product. The big question is, will it be as good, better, or the next supplement at the dollar store.

Komijin Extract. More commonly known as cumin or cuminum, komijin is primarily known as a digestive aid. Many take cumin to treat diarrhea, colic, bowel spasms, and gas. It stimulates the secretion of digestive enzymes in the stomach, which in turn improves overall digestion. Animal studies imply cuminum may enhance memory and combat stress.
Wild Mint Extract. Wild mint is a flavorful and aromatic herb commonly used to relieve coughs, colds, stomach cramps, indigestion, and headaches. Wild mint contains several flavonoids which boost immunity and protect cells against damage (source).
