What is HCG?

HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin and is a hormone naturally produced in both men and women. HCG is produced in large quantities during pregnancy and often referred to as the “pregnancy hormone”. HCG helps stimulate the hypothalamus so the body will metabolize fat to use for energy for the mother and baby. When used for weight loss, controlled amounts of HCG diet Chicago are injected into the body to stimulate the use of excess, abnormal fat for energy. HCG occurs naturally in every human tissue, so weight loss treatments using HCG are safe and effective for both men and women. Men tend to experience quicker results and lose more weight with HCG than women.

There are no side effects associated with the HCG Chicago used for weight loss. There is a common misconception that HCG is extracted from women or animal urine, which is not true. The HCG used for medical purposes is made in a laboratory from sterile cells but is still a natural component so there are not any adverse reactions associated with HCG injections.

If you participate in a medical weight loss program that incorporates HCG injections, you will not be able to use lotions, moisturizers, or liquid make-ups that contain oil. Using these products could slow down your weight loss process as HCG is very sensitive to creams, oils, and fats. HCG will not affect or negatively interact with any prescription or over the counter medications you may take during the course of your weight loss plan.
