The HCG diet has gained a lot of press in recent years, because of testimonies from people who say they lost 1 pound per day while on the diet. HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)is a hormone that is naturally produced in large amounts by pregnant women. It is also available an injectable prescription hormone, but is HCG compound safe.
HCG is said to trigger weight loss, as it increases metabolism and accelerates fat burning, allowing patients to utilize stored fat for fuel, without losing muscle mass. The HCG diet consists of a healthy meal and snack plan, supplements, and HCG injections.
HCGis also available as oral sublingual drops, and topical creams, and should only be obtained with a prescription from a doctor.
Is HCG compound safe?
There have been some concerns raised about the safety of HCG, because there are internet companies and other sources that advertise it for attractive prices. If the price seems too good to be true, chances are that it is an unregulated batch of HCG.
HCG is a prescription drug and is therefore regulated by the FDA, to ensure that it meets safety standards. Therefore if you are interested in going on the HCG diet, be sure to consult a licensed physician that is familiar with the use of HCG for dietary purposes. That is the best way to ensure that you are getting HCG that has been compounded by a licensed compounding pharmacy, in the US.
