Bacteriostatic Water and its Use in HCG

Bacteriostatic Water Vials

What is Bacteriostatic Water?

Chances are if you are about to begin your journey with the HCG Diet Protocol you may be wondering what bacteriostatic water is, and why it is important to incorporate it into the HCG hormone delivery.

Simply put, bacteriostatic water is water specially cleaned or filtered for the purpose of medical use. Completely sterile, it contains 0.9% Benzyl alcohol designed to prevent the formation of microbes developing in what is basically a carrier solution for the administration of the injectable hormone, HCG.

It goes without saying that injecting any substance using contaminated water solution will lead to major medical problems. Purchasing your bacteriostatic water from a reputable online source, equipped with updated information, such as HCG Supplies will ensure you are injecting a clean solution.

What Does it Look Like?

Typically arriving in a flip-top plastic vial, bacteriostatic water is not pressurized. With a typical shelf life around 1 year to 18 months unopened; it should be immediately refrigerated after opening, with the remainder discarded after 28 days.

Can I Use Sterile Water instead of Bacteriostatic Water for HCG?

While sterile water can be great for some things, bacteriostatic water is the most recommended means with which to transport the hormone into your system. Sterile water is for mixing a single dose to be injected all at once, since it has no bacteriostatic properties. Bacteriostatic water can be used to mix a multi-dose mixture to be used for up to 28 days.

Safety First

Most likely, you will be administering your HCG hormone shots at home in a nonclinical environment. Sterile water, while on the surface, should suffice; it is only sterile until a foreign micro-organism is introduced into the solution.

In plain terms, we cannot see micro-organisms with the naked eye. The cat dander, the dust mites in the bedroom from dog hair. That sneezed into tissue your six-year-old left on the kitchen table. All the daily activities and incidentals that we don’t even think about that take place at home, would never take place in a doctor’s office.

So, at home, sterile water is subjected to too much risk of contamination. Bacteriostatic water, however, containing benzyl alcohol makes for a better choice, especially for use at home when using a mixture intended for multiple injections.

Bacteriostatic Water Close Up

Cleaned and sterilized, any microrganisms are removed from the water, rendering it sterile. At this point, the 0.9% blending of benzyl alcohol is introduced, Thus completely sanitizing the water and protecting it from the growth of bacteria.

Administering the Bacteriostatic Water:

With an alcohol pad, wipe the rubber stopper on the empty mixing vial, the HCG medication vial, and the Bacteriostatic Water vial. Check to make certain any use-by dates are still good on both the HCG and the Bacteriostatic Water.

If in any doubt, DO NOT USE!

Next, slowly draw back the plunger on the mixing syringe until the volume of air drawn into the mixing syringe rises to the volume of water to be withdrawn from the Bacteriostatic Water vial.

Inserting the mixing needle into the top of the Bacteriostatic Water vial, introduce the air from the mixing syringe into the Bacteriostatic Water vial. Finally, withdraw the mixing needle from the Bacteriostatic Water vial.

Next, with the empty mixing vial, insert the mixing needle, you can now withdraw the amount of equivalent air to the measure of Bacteriostatic Water you wish to infuse into the empty mixing vial. This may sound complicated at first, however, the experience will teach you what the correct amounts look like. Additionally, you should also check out further how-to information available on your HCG Supplies website.

Now you are ready to withdraw the mixing needle from the empty mixing vial. Both vials should now be pressurized and arranged to exchange the liquids more effectively.

Preparing for the Injection

Utilizing the mixing syringe, insert the mixing needle into the Bacteriostatic Water vial and withdraw the intended volume of Bacteriostatic Water. Withdraw the mixing needle.

Insert the mixing needle into the HCG medication vial. Infuse a limited quantity of Bacteriostatic Water to reconstitute the powdered HCG. It doesn’t make a difference precisely the amount Bacteriostatic Water that you infuse here – 0.5 ml is fine. The powder dissolve right away.

Invert the HCG medication vial and withdraw every drop of liquid into the syringe. In order to recover the majority of HCG hormone into the syringe, make sure the tip of the needle is practically even with the rubber stopper. Withdraw the mixing needle.

Insert the mixing needle into the vacant mixing vial and infuse the majority of the liquid into the unfilled mixing vial. Withdraw the mixing needle. Presently your solution is blended for injections.

Discard all waste in an appropriate waste repository, notably a receptacle suitable for sharps, or needles. Keep away from all pets and children. Do not reuse needles. Discard the Bacteriostatic Water and the blended solution around 28 days later.

Each time you do an injection, make a point to clean the top of the mixing vial and the injection site with an alcohol pad. Utilizing another injection syringe each time you inject will help maintain a sterile and safe injection.

Draw back the plunger on your injection syringe until the volume of air approaches the volume of the solution you intend to inject. Insert the needle into the mixing vial and inject the air into the mixing vial. Invert the mixing vial and withdraw the volume of solution that you intend to inject. Withdraw the needle from the mixing vial. Hold the needle pointing upward and tap on the syringe barrel until any air bubbles have ascended to the top of the syringe. Push on the plunger to oust all air from the syringe. At this point, you are prepared to inject.

Again, discard all waste in the appropriate container, preferably one suitable to house sharps.

Performing this procedure correctly and in the most sanitary way possible is important for the success of the HCG Diet Protocol. Speaking with your primary care physician, you may be able to arrange daily visits to your doctor for the injections to be professionally administered. Alternatively, if you feel comfortable performing the injections yourself, you may do so. Making sure, instructions are meticulously followed can help you achieve a successful outcome.

The Skinny on HCG Side Effects

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. HCG helps to utilize the nutrients in the fat stores of our bodies. In this way nourishment is provided on demand whenever needed.

How it Works

Basically, HCG dieters follow a seriously high caloric feast the first two or 3 days of the HCG diet. This is the fun part. If you have been following these blogs, you know you can eat just about anything at all.

Total fun fest.

Pizza, burgers, hot dogs, potato chips, you name it.
It can be right there on the table.

No holds barred.

Then, things get serious.

Following the loading phase, during the next 3 weeks your caloric intake is a strict 500 calories per day.

Foods rich in sugar and starch must be avoided. Remember, simple starches contain sugar; or rather they convert to sugar. A fresh baked baguette, for example even topped with salad remains off limits.

During this phase you must take the HCG injections. HCG supplies will provide you with everything you need to administer the HCG hormone (purchased separately).

A Stabilization phase or Phase 3 reintroduces some of the foods cut from your diet in Phase 2.

During this phase you may discover some foods enjoyed before such as bread, pizza, dairy; you’re now sensitive to. Feelings of sluggishness and general moodiness may indicate that a reintroduced food or its ingredients are no longer right for your body.

Remember, you have essentially detoxed your body from additives including sugars, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, MSG, and simple starches.

Phase 4 is the phase where you will eat for life. So in other words, your new diet is now your lifestyle. During phase 3 you should have realized what foods work for you now and which do not.
But what if any are the side effects?

Preparation is Key

There is no denying that this weight loss program has worked wonders for many who have reported weight loss of between 15, 20 and even 30lbs during the three-week weight loss phase.

The use of HCG hormone is meant to maintain muscle mass and properly redistribute the body fat during the weight loss phase. HCG may also help to prevent loose and sagging skin from dieting. This is the benefit of the HCG hormone. Without the hormone, dieters may lose muscle mass in addition to fat, resulting in rapid weight gain after the program ends, even with a continued modified diet.

Muscle burns fat, so maintaining muscle increases the likelihood of maintaining weight loss after the program ends. This is particularly true with dieters following healthy food choices and continuing workout programs afterwards. Weight training is great because the anaerobic activity continues to boost metabolism after the workout has ended.

Cynics argue that weight loss has more to do with the calorie restriction and nothing to do with the HCG hormone. Those in favor of the founder, Doctor Simeons’ Protocol, argue the results and the benefit of the HCG program were suppressed by mainstream diet companies and researchers from around the 1970’s onwards. They suggest that today it is presented as an unconventional and new diet when in fact it has been around for over 60 years.

Clearly, there will be food cravings. It seems we are programmed to crave something we can no longer have. Tell a child not to eat the cookies before dinner, and you can bet from that moment, all the child thinks about is eating cookies before dinner even if they hadn’t thought about cookies all day!

This is not to suggest that you shouldn’t modify a busy routine. Nobody is suggesting your usual 3 hours a week Zumba. In fact, it is discouraged. What is recommended is gentle exercise. Additionally, nobody suggests tackling this diet while pregnant, or planning to become pregnant. Common sense should always win out.

Nutritional Deficiencies?

The misconception with HCG diet plan is nutritional deficiency. There are plenty of meal plans available. In fact, HCG Supplies offers a free download to help you with your diet plan.

The HCG diet even allows you to eat steak, shrimp, even lobster. What it does not allow you to do is to eat the entire cow, the entire lobster and an entire catch of shrimp.

So sure, if you’re used to loading your plate at every single meal, you may experience some hunger. Remember, for the health of your life, you are trying to retrain your brain to smaller portions, and a healthy approach to eating.

The HCG diet allows you to eat fruit and vegetables, even a few small crackers. The 500 calories are spread throughout the day with the injections taken at the same time each day. You are encouraged to drink plenty of water. You are also able to drink black coffee and unsweetened black tea.

Swinging Moods

Mood swings are another concern with critics of the HCG diet. But think of it this way. You are removing excess sugars and additives from your system. This may include alcohol, preservatives, and MSG. That can come as a shock to a body used to consuming those things regularly.

Some of those food and drink choices may have been a habit; they may even have been addictive.

Sugar, for example can be very addictive.

Think about that 2:00pm chocolate fix. Prior to starting the diet, you may not normally have eaten lunch, but you would have an afternoon chocolate bar. That is your habit. You don’t think of it as an addiction but, if you are dependent on it to get through the afternoon….

The same goes for the 5:00 o’clock wine and spirits when you arrive home after a crazy day at work. These routines become habits, potentially altering the brain chemistry.

Psychologically, if your attitude on the HCG diet is one of deprivation then our mood is going to bottom out even more. Attitude can really be everything.
Your HCG diet brain is rebelling. It is doing absolutely everything possible in order to survive.

We are hardwired to not like change. It keeps us safe. It keeps us warm. It maintains everything we know and trust.

It’s called survival.

So even though we want to eat healthy, even though we know we want to lose weight, even though our brain says, yes let’s do this, behind our back, it does everything it can to sabotage our efforts. Hence the mood swing as we reach for a treat that is no longer there.

Understanding the psychology can help us get through those moments. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, so long as you know why it’s there.
Remember, you are removing toxins and bad habits from the body.

Now, a disclaimer. If you have a history of depression, anxiety, or any other medical condition, consult with your doctor before embarking on this or any diet.

At the end of the day, where the real side effect is weight loss, and a healthy approach to nutrition and portion control, what is there to lose? The answer is pounds and inches.

Boost Your HCG Results by Following these Two Phases First

HCG 101

So. you’re onboard, super excited and ready to get going with your HCG Diet! Congratulations! We know you’re going to look amazing. You might even have your HCG Supplies — syringes, vials, and bacteriostatic water on the way! Rest assured our on line ordering and delivery is secure, quick and confidential.

Right now though, while you’re anxious to get going, you might have a question or two. That’s understandable.

How HCG Works

The HCG hormone forms the back bone to a successful HCG Diet plan. The use of the hormone HCG, via injection forms part of the four phase diet or lifestyle- change plan, also known as Dr. Simeons’ Protocol. The hormone, which reduces hunger cravings and encourages the burning & redistribution of fat (not muscle) during the most intense Phase 2 of the diet, should be taken according to Dr. Simeons’ instructions. The retention of muscle during the weight loss phase plays an instrumental role in preventing weight from ‘coming back’ once you’ve successfully lost the desired weight, and entered into the Phase 4, or Maintenance mode.

Diet Phases

Subdivided into four parts; the HCG Diet plan gives you the opportunity to phase in the diet, something not all diet programs offer. After the Phase 1, front loading phase, you’ll enter Phase 2; this is where the real results start. Careful caloric restriction paves the way for significant weight loss. The remaining phases; phase 3 and phase 4, the final, lifestyle phase, we’ll talk about next time!

Eat as Much as You Want!

Welcome to Phase 1, also known as Loading Days. Eat everything you want! Eat as much as you want! Eat all the things you are likely to miss. This can include cookies, ice cream, candy and other goodies. French fries? Go for it! This phase will last about three days. Stock up on the inside!

Is This a Good Time?

Ideally, you should take your HCG hormone per instructions at the same time each day. Taking your HCG hormone on your weekend schedule after a half-day lie-in, for example, is not going to reflect a daily work schedule that puts you on the road at 6.00am. The important thing is to make it work for you.
As with all successful endeavors, some forward planning and consistency is key.

Five Hundred and Counting!- Phase 2

Beginning on day three is where you start restricting your caloric intake for the appropriate amount of time according to the weight you wish to lose. A person needing to lose 50lbs or more is likely going to want to take the maximum amount of time on each phase. Hopefully, you will have referred to your list of allowable foods during this phase and not winging it on the last minute, on your way out the door to work.

Keep preparation at the front of your mind. It is worth repeating, preparation really is the key to your success!

Aside from drinking lots of water, begin your day with coffee as normal. Milk in your coffee is allowed, however, no more than one teaspoon of milk per day. Sugar is not allowed, however Stevia is. One packet or one serving per cup. Remember, you are watching your caloric intake. Reserve your calories for nutrient rich foods at meal time.

The Lunch Bunch

Schedule your lunch time! Missing meals will likely lead to binge eating tons of carbs and refined sugars somewhere around 2.00pm. Remember, you are eating for energy. Nutritious foods are a must.

Healthy Options

Be honest. If healthy options are not easy to obtain during working hours, prepare your lunch beforehand. You are permitted to eat 100 grams of protein per day. This can come from chicken, fish, veal, crabmeat, and beef. Choose the lowest fat content possible. Salmon, being high in fat, can easily be replaced with wild-caught Tilapia which is lower in fat and provides an excellent source of protein.

Grab your Broccoli

Remember your veggies at lunch time. You are permitted to have one vegetable at lunch time. This can be broccoli, spinach, cucumber, cabbage, or lettuce. Refer to your list of HCG food list for each of the four phases.

Daily Bread

Great news! You can have a carb! A bread stick or a slice of melba toast. No garlic salt or other flavorings. No stuck on sesame seeds! Those are extra calories. Remember; ask yourself. Are these calories worth it, as they relate to nutrient rich calories your body needs?

Fruiti-Tuti

Last on the lunch time menu is a piece of fruit. This must be a plain piece of fruit. Not something served on top of a cheesecake or under cream. That was Phase One, remember? By now, it might feel like a distant dream. But hang in there; you’re doing great! A good fruit choice is a crisp apple, a fresh half grapefruit, or a handful of ripe strawberries.

You Did It!!

Wow! You made it through lunch time and did great! Hang in there. There’s a healthier and more active version of you, who can’t wait to congratulate you, and thank you for all your efforts during this phase.

Grab Dinner!

Yep. But not really. The same as lunch, planning ahead is paramount. This is not a time to cheat by grabbing some fried chicken on the way home because the kids have practice and traffic’s already backed up. Either have someone else pick up the kids if possible; or have your dinner already prepared at home. Grab n’ go if you must. But dinner is it.

Dinner will consist of the same, or similar to your lunch. This is where you can eat the other half of your protein, another vegetable from your food list, and the apple for desert, because you had strawberries at lunch time.

Treat

By this time, you might consider a cup of black coffee, a treat. Go ahead, drink it. But keep it black and sugar free!

Keep at It!

Keep going. You’re committed and doing really great. Check out support online, be inspired by the success stories of other HCG Dieters who started their journey much like you; wanting to change for the better.

Look out for the next posting. Phase 3, and phase 4.

What should I order?

Customers always have questions about what to order. HCGSupplies.com has created an Easy Ordering Guide, but to make it even easier, we’ll give you the “broad strokes” guide.

Before we begin, remember: WE ARE NOT DOCTORS, AND CAN NOT GIVE MEDICAL ADVICE.  THESE STATEMENTS ARE OUR OWN OPINION BASED ON OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE ONLY. PLEASE CONSULT A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL BEFORE STARTING ANY MEDICATION OR DIET PROGRAM.

So, now that we’re clear…

Start with the amount of HCG you need. You can use the Easy Ordering Guide to find out the exact amount you need, but if you just want to estimate:

  • 23 Day Round – 5,000iu HCG
  • 43 Day Round – 10,000iu HCG

Now, decide how often you want to mix. (Yes, this matters.) Do you want to mix your HCG every few days (for a fresher mix), or once or twice throughout the diet (for more convenience).

  • Mix more often – order your HCG in 1,500iu or 2,000iu quantities
  • Mix less often – order your HCG in 5,000iu or 10,000iu quantities

Simple, right? Now onto the kit. This is the easiest yet.

Just find the kit that matches how you’ve ordered your HCG. For example…

If you are doing a 23-Day round, and you’re ordering your HCG in 1,500iu or 2,000iu quantities, then you’ll want
