What is HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin)


What is HCG

Human chorionic gonadotropin, (also known as HCG) is a hormone. It is produced by the syncytiotrophoblast and it is a part of the placenta. There are a few different methods to take HCG. You can take HCG injections, oral drops, sprays or pellets. However, it is said that the injections are the most efficient.

Firstly, before starting any HCG diet menu you must ask for your doctor’s advice. If your doctor advises you to take HCG and you decide to do so, you will have to provide us with your medical history. You mustn’t worry, as our doctors are experts in endocrinology and HCG diet.

You must have already heard about the HCG diet protocol. People say it is a rather extreme diet. While you are taking HCG, the diet limits you to 500 calories per day, for 8 weeks. People often ask whether HCG is efficient in weight loss. The answer is definitely yes. However, what people tend to forget to ask is how does HCG work in losing weight? The answer is a rather complicated one. HCG injections will not make you lose weight, it is the diet that makes you lose weight. Injections only change the way you lose weight. As said before, the diet is said to be a rather extreme one, so it is understandable why it helps you lose weight. Remember, it is not the injections that help you lose weight.

Contrary to a popular belief, you do not lose muscle weight, as the injections will not allow you. The catabolic state (muscle breakdown) is counteracted by the anabolic state (muscle building) created by the HCG hormone by elevating the hormone levels in the body (testosterone included).

Keep in mind that HCG diet is only legal if a health care provider prescribes it to you. HCG has been approved by the FDA. In fact, HCG has been approved as treatment for fertility issues. Remember that over-the-counter HCG products are not legal. There are plenty of companies who sell illegal HCG products. The FDA sent out warning letters to these companies but you still have to be careful. It is only legal if a specialists prescribes it to you, otherwise it is not.

It is advised that you monitor your progress. This way, you will know whether you develop a side effect. Just like any other medication, HCG has side effects. In case you have suspicion that you may be developing a side effect, do contact a doctor immediately. Headaches, light water retention, light headedness and irritability are common side effects anyone using HCG may develop. However, most people who reported to have developed these side effects, said that they disappeared a few days later. In case you develop any side effects and they persist, consult a doctor immediately.

All in all, keep in mind that HCG is only legal when a doctor prescribes it to you. If you have any questions, contact us by calling us or by completing a form on this page. In case you complete a form, one of our assistants will get back to you.
