What is HCG?
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a natural substance produced by the placenta during pregnancy in huge amounts. It was discovered in 1927 and has been used by physicians to induce ovulation in woman or to treat hypogonadism in men. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone used for different reasons in men and women. HCG is used in combination with other fertility drugs to increase a woman’s chance of pregnancy. In men or adolescent boys, HCG helps the production of testosterone and sperm.
Research done by numerous physicians worldwide has determined that the use of HCG for obesity treatment meets patients’ expectations for a safe and effective weight loss program that is easy to follow and can improve their quality of life.
Use of HCG for treatment of obesity and overweight
Dr. ATW Simeons, a German-born physician practicing in Rome, published first reported use on the use of HCG diet in 1954. Dr. Simeons noted that when males were treated with HCG for Adiposogenital dystrophy, the patients had re-distribution of fat from the abdomen, hips and thighs to an appropriate and health distribution. Thus Dr. Simeon hypothesized that is also given very low calorie diet they could further reducing the body weight. After treating over 3000 patients, he concluded that patients tolerated a very low calorie diet without suffering headaches, irritability and weakness.
How does HCG help you lose weight in all the right places?
It is not only about pounds; it’s also about the inches. The amount of weight lost during treatment does not differ significantly from other treatments involving low calorie diets. What makes treatment with HCG so effective is that patients lose significantly more body fat than patients that only diet. The impact is seen in a changed body contour, with particular impact on those hard to reduce areas such as thighs and buttocks.
