HCG Diet / Injections
hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone present in both men and women. It has been found to be produced in great amounts in the placenta of pregnant females to aid in the control of vital metabolic functions. In non-pregnant persons, and males, on-going research is suggesting that hCG similarly increases metabolism similar to a pregnant female by helping the body release calories stored in fat.
History of hCG Use For Weight Loss
The use of hCG for the medical management of obesity is based on the extensive research completed in 1954 by world-renowed physician Dr. A.T.W. Simeons.
Dr. Simeons studied extensively and found that in addition to a specific diet, hCG can help safely speed up weight loss. hCG is believed to break down your abnormal body fat, causing you to lose inches. At the same time, it protects your body's good fat and muscle from depleting. That means that you can go on a low calorie food plan and lose weight without the typical problems such as muscle loss and sagging skin.
hCG is FDA approved for treatments other than that for weight management, and is therefore used Off-Label. Extensive research is on-going around the world with favorable findings.
