HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) Injection for Weight Loss Under Physician Supervision
Obesity is a very common problem in the current society. In fact, according to the WHO (World Health Organization) statistics, at least 39% of adults (1.9 billion people) were overweight and 13% (650 million people) were obese in 2016. So, it is already considered a public health problem, and it has attracted the attention of many specialists.
Although obesity is preventable, these statistics have incentivized the experts to develop different techniques to increase the weight loss. In the first place, the experts recommend having a healthy lifestyle, which includes eating in a balanced way and doing exercise in a regular basis.
However, in some cases, a healthy lifestyle is not enough, and the patient must turn to other techniques such as taking special medication or even undergoing surgery. Among these new techniques available to lose weight, the hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) injections are very innovative and effective.
What is HCG?
The hCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone produced by both men and women in low amounts along their lives, but it is particularly high during the pregnancy period. In men, the HCG is produced by the testicles, and it helps to produce testosterone, which is very important in the development of sexual characteristics and the reproductive organs, and it also improves the functioning of the testicles during the puberty stage.
On the other hand, in women, the hCG has an important role in the fertility because it promotes the progesterone production, the uterine growth parallel to fetal growth and, it causes the blockage of any immune or macrophage action by the mother on foreign invading placental cells during pregnancy. In fact, in pregnant women, this is the hormone that is measured to diagnose pregnancy.
Likewise, the hCG has anabolic properties, so it has been used as an anabolic steroid, especially when combined with other substances. The HCG can increase the rate of fat burning when combined with a low-calorie diet, so the person will lose weight and the body’s metabolism gets reset. This way, we can understand that the use of hCG for weight loss and appetite control is due to its anabolic properties.
It is important to know that the way of acting of the hCG guarantees removing only the fat tissue, so the muscles are not affected and the person loses weight but preserves his/her muscular mass, so it can be used in people of different ages and health conditions.
The physicians monitored hCG programs must be adapted and personalized to each person needs and desires. The dose of HCG that will be used must be determined by a qualified doctor because all people respond differently to medication; however, in most cases, the HCG shot dosage is 200iu/day. Most experts recommend undergoing a daily basis program to obtain the best results.
On the other hand, although hCG injections can induce weight loss on their own, the experts recommend combining them with a diet with limited calories (approximately 500-800 calories per day distributed between limited servings of vegetables, proteins and fruits) that enhances the rate of fat burnt and accelerates the weight loss. In fact, following these physicians monitored hCG programs can help to lose between 1 and 2 pounds in a day.
The human body contains a lot of fat components that have different functions, for example, they cover the organs to avoid damage and guarantee a proper nutrients support. However, when these tissues are in the body in excess, they can represent a problem because they can adhere to other parts that do not need them, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms and hips.
It is important to highlight that, while the person is on the physicians monitored hCG programs, he/she must be careful to avoid using the injections in a higher dose or for a longer period than recommended by the doctor in order to avoid complications or adverse effects from this program.
