Many of you have got in touch wanting to know how Wellthy Sweat compares to Hourglass by Propura. In this comparison review we will be looking at the main features and ingredients of both of these supplements and comparing them side by side to see which one you should choose.
In this article, we’ll be looking at:
- The companies behind these supplements
- Ingredients of each product
- The servings
- How much each one costs
- What is the best option overall
Here is everything you need to know about both of these diet pills:
The Company: What makes them different?
Before we look at the product themselves, let’s take a look at the brands behind them to see how dedicated they are to their products:
Wellthy is an entire supplement range that has products designed for both men and women.
They have numerous supplements that can help you on different goals including fat loss, focus, sleep, cleanses, muscle building and more.
All their products are made in an FDA approved facility under cGMP (Current Goods Manufacturing Process) in Southern California.
Essentially, their products are clean and it’s incredibly unlikely that you would be given a contaminated product.
It’s also worth noting that all of Wellthy’s products are Vegan too (aside from their collagen protein).
Wellthy also works with Feeding America and provides one meal to local food banks with every product sold.
Propura is a London-based nutraceutical company that prides itself on very specialist products.
Unlike Wellthy it only has two products, with Hourglass being it’s main focus. This allows them to constantly research and perfect the formula and ensure the highest possible results among their range. They seem to be focused a lot more on quality over quantity with their team being led by an experienced PhD research chemist.
Just like Wellthy, Propura manufacturers their product in FDA approved facilities under the cGMP (Current Goods Manufacturing Processes) to make sure it remains pure and safe. However unlike Wellthy, Propura makes their product in both the USA and UK not just California.
Muxcle’s Verdict: Wellthy Sweat 1 – 1 Hourglass (Draw)
It’s too close to call. Although Propura have only two products to focus on, they can put a lot of effort into Hourglass and perfect it considering it’s their main product. Whereas, Wellthy’s attention is split over a long list of options.
Propura are arguably more dedicated to Hourglass than Wellthy are to Sweat – the ingredients that we’ll look at later definitely show this. However, Wellthy does have the advantage of being more ‘for the people’ with their Feeding America work.
They both have advantages for different reasons, feel free to make up you’re own mind. But for us we have to give them both a point here.
The Ingredients: What is more effective?
Now we’re getting into it. Companies aside, we need to look at the products themselves. This is where fat burners differ the most and show their true colors.
Here’s what you need to know:
Wellthy Sweat’s Ingredients:
This is the full list of what’s in Wellthy Sweat:
These are the best ingredients in this fat burner:
A good start to Wellthy Sweat, but not exactly a fat burner, although it does have some advantages.
Guarana is a highly caffeineated herb. Caffeine is arguably one of the best natural stimulants on the market which can help to boost your energy, metabolism, focus and even power output.
It’s great for the gym and for keeping you going throughout the day.
Green Coffee Bean
Another good option, and much more of a fat burner in this diet pill.
Green Coffee Bean contains chlorogenic acid, which is what helps with fat loss. It works by helping to reduce the glucose in your liver that you use for energy.
Without this glucose, your body starts looking for other resources to burn for energy like your fat cells. It’s great for helping you burn more fat with no extra effort.
Cayenne Pepper / Capsimax
We’ve grouped both of these together as they have one main component Capsaicin.
Capsaicin is what gives chili it’s heat, and it’s a great thermogenic in Wellthy Sweat.
After your body absorbs this nutrient it helps to promote your core temperature which forces your body to cool itself. This cooling requires more energy than usual and burns more calories and fat in the process.
Not only that, there are also some studies which show Cayenne Pepper can help to some extent as an appetite suppressant.
Here are the ingredients that we think could be replaced with better options:
We’re not big fans of Dandelion Root in fat burners – mainly because it’s a diuretic.
A diuretic is a nutrient that reduces your water weight. This only has short term benefits. It’ll help you lose weight, because you’re losing more water, but it technically won’t burn fat.
You should also drink more when taking a fat burner with diuretics as it could lead to dehydration.
This isn’t a great ingredient either in Wellthy Sweat. There’s just not a lot of studies out there on it, and no humans ones regarding fat loss.
The only benefit that studies suggest from this nutrient is that it can help with urinary tract infections – and there aren’t even humans studies to confirm this.
Aside from that it’s not going to do much for you.
We actually like L-Carnitine a lot, it’s a great amino acid. However we can’t recommend it in Wellthy Sweat due to the dosage.
When it’s well dosed, L-Carnitine can help promote energy, metabolism and focus. However to get these benefits you need to be supplementing 500 – 2500mg per serving.
There’s only around 250mg in total in this supplement, and that is far from ideal.
Quick Summary of Wellthy Sweat’s Ingredients
This isn’t a bad set of ingredients, there’s nothing dangerous in here. Guarana, Green Coffee Bean and Capsaicin all have their advantages, however, three good ingredients may not equal a good fat burner.
Especially when you add the unreliability of the Uva Ursi, low dosed L-Carnitine and diuretic Dandelion Root.
It’s better than quite a few other fat burners out there, but it by no means the best that we have seen.
Whereas this is what you get in Propura’s Hourglass:
This is a good mineral to see in Hourglass. Chromium isn’t a direct fat burner but it can help in other ways.
How? It can help to regulate your blood glucose and insulin levels.
This matters because high insulin levels can lead to increased fat storage. By keeping your insulin under control with something like Chromium, your body will store less fat from the food you eat which can help to keep you slimming down.
Another great option in this diet pill, Glucomannan comes from the Konjac root and helps a lot in Hourglass.
It’s a fibrous complex which is effective for appetite suppression. Once you consume it, the Glucomannan swells in your stomach helping you to feel fuller for longer. This can help keep away any appetite cravings.
Glucomannan also has the added benefit of helping to regulate cholesterol which is good for overall health.
This is arguably the best ingredient used in Hourglass. Green Tea is a fantastic thermogenic fat burner.
It works well because it contains a specific kind of antioxidant known as catechins. When your body absorbs catechins they help to promote your overall levels of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine.
The more norepinephrine you have in your system, the more fat you’ll burn throughout the day.
Not only that, Green Tea also contains some caffeine which can help in the gym, and L-Theanine which is an amino acid which can help with focus.
It’s a great option in this supplement.
Cayenne Pepper / Capsimax
As we’ve already covered with Wellthy Sweat, these are nutrients which contain Capsaicin.
It raises your body’s core temperature which starts a cool down process which burns more calories and fat than you would do normally. Also it helps as an appetite suppressant.
Again, this is another ingredient that is also in Wellthy Sweat.
You know the deal, it’s high in Caffeine and this can help you out in the gym by boosting your energy, power output and focus. It can also help with your waistline by improving your metabolism.
This isn’t a fat burner in Hourglass, but it is a smart extra.
Black Pepper is great for improving your body’s absorption rate. Having it here can help you get more out of the ingredients already in this supplement and allow them to activate in your system at a faster rate.
It is a solid supporting nutrient.
Quick Summary of the Hourglass Ingredients:
On the whole they’re pretty solid. A lot of thermogenics in here along with energy boosters and a dedicated appetite suppressant with the Glucomannan.
There are no weak ingredients in here from our standpoint. They’ve dosed their product carefully and it shows, 1500mg of Glucomannan per daily serving is bold for a supplement. You don’t find much that use a dosage that high, but that’s what it takes for it to effectively work as an appetite suppressant.
It’s an impressive formula.
Muxcle’s Verdict: Wellthy Sweat 1 – 2 Hourglass
We had to give it to Hourglass on this one. The ingredients are a lot more measured and every single one has a purpose when it comes to fat loss along with the studies to show it.
Wellthy Sweat on the other hand has some good ingredients, but it can be hit and miss at times. They’ve made some poor choices like with the Uva Ursi and some weak dosing with the L-Carnitine. Pound for pound it’s not as effective as Hourglass.
Hourglass wins this round.
The Servings: Which is more balanced?
Although not as important as the ingredients, servings do matter when it comes to fat loss. The amount of times you take a fat burner throughout the day, governs how long it will stay active in your system. Ideally, you want a supplement something with multiple daily servings.
Wellthy Sweat has one serving a day, Hourglass has three.
In our opinion, Hourglass is better suited for effective fat loss here. A typical serving only lasts for a few hours, with Wellthy Sweat, this may not be enough to cover you for the full day.
However, Hourglass has 3 servings a day, one is recommended with each meal. This can keep your energy levels high and make sure you stay in that fat burning mode for as long as possible throughout the day. Just make sure you have that last serving long before you go to sleep as it is caffeinated.
The Price: What is Cheaper?
Prices change all the time, however at the time of writing this article here are the current prices:
Wellthy Sweat retails at $79.99 USD a bottle (One Month Supply):
Wellthy does try to compete with this by offering a subscription service, which lowers their price down to $59.99. $20 cheaper, but still doesn’t come close to the price of Hourglass.
If you do sign up you have to keep an eye on their subscription service as you will have to let them know when you don’t want any more.
However, Wellthy are a trustworthy company and cover each one of their products with a 30 day money back guarantee. If you don’t like it, you can send it back for a refund.
Propura Hourglass retails at $50.00 USD a bottle (One Month Supply)
Hourglass is the cheaper choice at $50 a bottle. Plus, Hourglass also offer an extra bottle if you decide to buy a 3 month’s supply which works out at roughly $37.50 USD a bottle.
They also seem to be determined to outdo Wellthy wherever they can and offer a 90 day guarantee. If you use it for 3 months and don’t see the results you’re looking for, you can send it back for a refund.
Muxcle’s Verdict: Wellthy Sweat 1 – 3 Hourglass*
Hourglass is by far the cheaper option, and even comes with a longer money back guarantee (90 days to Wellthy’s 30).
It’s a clear win for Hourglass. However it’s not over yet.
*Wellthy Sweat is sometimes cheaper through the FabFitFun discount box, as pointed out by several of our readers – where it apparently retails for $15.00 which is significantly cheaper. This is can make it less than half the price of Hourglass. However, we are unaware how long this offer lasts and from what we understand, you need to be on their paid membership plan.
Conclusion: Hourglass Wins
With a score of 1 – 3, Hourglass is the clear winner of this comparison review.
Don’t get us wrong, Wellthy is a great company, but Hourglass is Propura’s main product out of it’s two product range. This means they can put a lot more focus and energy into making it an effective option. The ingredients are better than Wellthy Sweat, there’s more servings and their guarantee lasts longer.
It’s their main product and they want it to be as safe and effective as possible. Wellthy is safe too, but in our opinion it’s clear the same amount of research didn’t go into Sweat, and unfortunately, it’s a much higher price.
