What is hCG?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, it is a naturally occurring hormone that develops in the placenta of women when they are pregnant. After about 3 weeks of pregnancy, a woman’s placenta will supply up to 1 million units of HCG in order to send the message to the brain and the body that there is a pregnancy and developing fetus, this is crucial because if a woman is not reaching adequate caloric intake for the day, that can be dangerous to the fetus, therefore, the brain sends another message to the body to unlock and release stored abnormal fat and dump 2,000-3,000 k/cal of fat calories into the bloodstream to nourish the fetus.
How Do hCG Weight Loss Programs Work?
When we give HCG injections or sublingually to the body, it sends a message, in a much more subtle way it will still cause weight loss in the same way as above, the brain does not know there is not a pregnancy, it is still getting that HCG hormonal message. Therefore, on a low-calorie diet and the HCG injection daily we see very rapid weight loss which is safe and effective
