HCG Hormones and Your Weight Loss Regimen

Referred to as HCG, Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin is a hormone. The basic function of this hormone is to nourish a fetus during the early stages of pregnancy. Our body produces HCG naturally from a component of the fertilized egg. However, synthetic HCG powder is made by extracting it from the pituitary glands of a pregnant woman. A wide range of HCG products are created by using this powder.

Dr. ATW Simeons, a British endocrinologist, first identified the connection between HCG and weight loss. He suggested that this hormone renders unbelievable results when it comes to losing an enormous amount of weight. Initially, only the injection form of HCG hormone was available in his protocol. However, at present numerous other forms like pills and drops have been formulated in an attempt to add more convenience to the consumer.

Comparing the Effectiveness of HCG Injections with Drops and Pellets

While differentiating between the efficacy of injections, pellets, and drops, it is essential to know the procedure and steps associated with each of these methods. As far as HCG injection is concerned, it is usually injected into the abdominal area. Nevertheless, upper arm, buttocks, or thigh are some of the other places where you can inject the dose. Any minimal side effects felt eventually minimize after a few hours.

Using drops and pellets appears to be a relatively simple process. However, it is not as effective as the injections. Since you need to place them beneath your tongue, chances are there that you may not absorb the complete dosage. This may happen when you drink something within a few minutes of taking HCG pellets or drop or even if you do not hold them under your tongue for a long enough period of time. This is considered as the major drawback of HCG drops and pellets. In fact, the dose takes some time to completely dissolve and enter into the bloodstream. Hence, it is advised to stick with injections for the most effective HCG protocol possible.

As a whole, each of the above-mentioned methods of administering HCG can seem to have their plus points. Some people are comfortable with the drops and pellets. Others who are determined to lose their weight quickly prefer the tried and true method of injections.

VITAMIN B12: An Essential Component of HCG Diet

The Vitamin B12 supplement plays a pivotal role to enhance the efficiency of the HCG diet. This is the reason Vitamin B12 is sometimes sold along with HCG kit. During weight loss protocol, it is consumed in a liquid form. Although there are numerous health benefits associated with this vitamin, its positive impacts as a part of the HCG diet are simply amazing. Vitamin B12 enhances the absorption of HCG and provides desired results within less anticipated time. Apart from this, Sublingual Vitamin B12 is observed to provide an extra boost, which some people require to sustain perfect physical and mental health, while following the strict HCG diet protocol.

Things to Consider while Purchasing the HCG Hormone

Since different companies manufacture HCG hormone, there are various brand names available in the market. Some of the leading brands include Corion, Ovidac, and HuCoG. We have found most of the brands to be essentially equal in effectiveness on the HCG Diet Protocol. Hence, you should try and experiment, as to what brand works best for your body. Besides this, the most essential aspect while purchasing the HCG supplies is to look for a trusted provider.

Buying HCG is not a big deal, as there are various options including pharmacies (require a script from your doctor) and online providers. Make sure to do your research prior to choosing a product. By doing so, you can find the best product suited to you both in terms of price and quality.

Following are the aspects that you should keep in mind before purchasing HCG hormone.

Quality and Quantity: Both the quality and quantity of HCG hormone should be your concern. Look for superior quality pharmaceutical powder composed of HCG in pure form.

Dosage Information: The product must offer clear information, as for how to administer the dose. This will ensure that you get the best possible outcome after taking the required amount of this hormone.

Avoid HCG-free Drops: If you are thinking about choosing the homeopathic version, make sure that the product contains actual HCG hormone, as in most of the cases, these drops are HCG-free. They even brag about the fact that they contain no HCG hormone like that is actually a good thing. This really means that you wouldn’t get the desired results with this type of product.

Specific Diet Information: In fact, if you don’t follow a particular diet plan while taking HCG, it would not yield any positive results for your weight loss regimen. So, choose only such a protocol, which provides specific diet information. The company must share all the details regarding what foods you can eat and what precautions to take. Something like the original HCG Protocol by Dr. ATW Simeons is a long-time proven method.

Homeopathic Vs Pharmaceutical HCG Hormones

Pharmaceutical HCG comes in a powdered form. The solution is prepared by mixing the HCG powder with bacteriostatic water. The solution is then injected under the skin as per the prescribed dosage in the protocol. For optimum results, you should know the recommended method of mixing the HCG powder and creating a solution that is right for you. Apart from the injection, there is another alternative method known as sublingual HCG. It involves placing a few drops under the tongue 2 times per day.

Whereas, homeopathic HCG is available in the forms of drops, pellets, and patches. It has been observed that homeopathic drops contain no HCG hormone. The only thing present in these drops is the memory of such a hormone. Although this type of medication works to some extent, scientists are still unable to explain the reasons for any such effectiveness.

Apparently, the method of injecting HCG appears to be difficult at first, but you will get used to it. In fact, HCG injections are the most effective method to administer HCG for weight loss protocol. This is so, as you intake a measured amount of this hormone with each daily dose.

Where do I get my HCG?

Many customers have asked us “Where do I get my HCG?” “Where do I purchase HCG?”

If you live inside the US, you know that you need a prescription to purchase HCG, or you need to purchase HCG from an online pharmacy outside of the US.

What lotion should you use on Phase 2?

In “Pounds and Inches,” Dr. Simeons directed dieters to stay away from creams and lotions during the 500-calorie part of the HCG Diet, because of the oils and fats they use as a base.

Many people ask: “What lotion should I use during Phase 2 of my HCG Protocol?”

A good alternative for these lotions is Aloe Vera, straight from the plant. I keep a plant in the kitchen in case of burns. If my hands get too dry during Phase 2, I’ll cut a small piece off the plant and squeeze out the juicy center. Then I rub the juice into my hands until it dissapears.

No, it’s not sticky – if you rub in the juice until it’s gone. My hands are really soft after using it! 🙂

Do HCG Injections Hurt?

Dr. Simeons’ HCG diet protocol uses HCG Injections on a daily basis so if you’re a bit put off by the idea of having to give yourself injections daily, read on:

“HCG Injections can be quite painless. The whole theory behind HCG is that it helps you to lose weight using only your fat reserves, while at the same time keeping your brain out of “famine” mode and sparing critical fat and muscle.”

The needle gauges we offer are very small – 27g or 28g. Many people have reported barely feeling anything at all when giving themselves the injections, especially with the 28g needle. Of course everyone is different but if you’ve come this far, go for it!

Do You Know How to Mix HCG?

Once hydrated, most HCG looses its potency in about 30-45 days, so the more control you have over that “clock,” the better.

So you’re best option is to mix your own HCG. But don’t worry! It’s not has hard as it sounds. BASICALLY, it’s a three-step process:

1. Hydrate the HCG.

2. Put the hydrated HCG into a clean, empty glass vial.

3. Add enough mixing solvent to get the mixture to the right strength for dosing.

Of course, there’s a little more to it than that. But we do have complete mixing instructions on our webiste: www.hcgsupplies.com. Just click on “Mixing Instructions” for complete details.
