What Is HCG?

There has been a lot of talk about the HCG diet. This article discusses the difference between prescription HCG drops for weight loss, HCG injections and homeopathic HCG. HCG is a natural hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. In pregnant females, this hormone breaks down the women’s fat storage and provides nutrients to the fetus. Research suggests that this increased metabolism and fat burning also occurs in non-pregnant men and women when adhering to the HCG diet plan.

How do HCG Drops work?

HCG drops works helps trigger the body to burn stored fat for fuel, by resetting the hypothalamus gland. HCG drops helps burn the excess fat tissue that you don’t need. Diet alone won’t help you lose these fat stores. In fact, reducing your caloric intake will actually make your body hold on to the fat stores for emergency fuel. HCG drops help bypass this mechanism so that during a low calorie diet your body releases excess fat instead of holding on to it.

Prescription HCG Drops vs Homeopathic HCG

Homeopathic HCG is a liquid preparation made of vitamins, herbal stimulants and may not even contain any HCG. On January 24, 2011, the FDA issued statements regarding homeopathic and over-the-counter versions of HCG; “There is no evidence oral over-the-counter products are effective for weight loss, and while they may not be dangerous, they’re at least economic fraud.”

According to Dr Emma’s HCG Protocol, prescription HCG will help retain muscle mass during the weight loss period and help to control hunger.

Prescription HCG drops is made of ingredients from FDA approved facilities. It is available by prescription only.
