The program utilizes injections of a natural hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) coupled with a very low calorie diet (VLCD). hCg causes the brain to trigger a release of abnormal fat stores freeing upwards of 2500 calories daily.
What is HCG?
Human chorionic gonadotrophin, or HCG, is a hormone that is naturally produced by a woman’s body when she is pregnant. Made from the cells that form the placenta, it nourishes a fertilized egg after it is implanted in the uterine wall. It has been approved by the FDA for treatment of both male and female infertility. Its exact mechanism in HCG weight loss Program is unknown.
Note: According to the FDA, the HCG diet,weight loss injections, HCG injections and HCG drops have not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
