Basic Information About HCG and Why HCG Works!
HCG (HumanChorionic Gonadotropin) allows your hypothalamus to function at a higher capacity and access abnormal fat it usually cannot access during dieting. This glycoprotein allows you to burn between 2500-4000 calories per day with an intake of only 500 calories per day without hunger, loss of energy, or need for exercise. Patients lose 1-2 lbs per day without hunger and HCG allows patients to lose more fat tissue directly causing visible contouring of the body while resetting the hypothalamus which implies long lasting results with maintenance program.
A lot of nonsense is being thrown around about why HCG works. The bottom line is that this hormone evolved to direct the bodies of pregnant women to use their own fat as a source of calories for the developing fetus. Dr. Simeons simply discovered that this hormone will do the same thing in women who are not pregnant, as well as in men. It directs the body to use up calories from fat. That is the fundamental explanation.
The following describes some basic facts about HCG that are not widely known among the dieters on this program, nor among most doctors. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is best known as a pregnancy hormone that is produced by the embryo soon after conception. HCG is the hormone that is used to test for pregnancy.
When produced during pregnancy, HCG is meant to help the corpus luteum remain intact. The corpus luteum, which is part of the ovary, is integral in maintaining production of the progesterone that is an important component of human pregnancy. In addition to preventing the disintegration of the corpus luteum, researchers believe that HCG provides pregnant women with extra immunity during pregnancy.
The high levels of HCG that are produced during pregnancy have no negative effects on the pregnant woman’s body. In fact, doctors have used HCG for many years in order to help women who are experiencing hormonal issues or fertility problems.
More recently, however, researchers have found that HCG can actually help the body burn fat and can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy low calorie diet and a moderate exercise routine. This discovery confirmed the work of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, who used HCG plus a 500-calorie per day diet to direct the bodies of overweight people to burn fat instead of muscle. Although HCG is associated with pregnancy, it can safely be used by both men and women that are looking to get their weight under control.
Several other positive side effects have also become associated with HCG therapy. These include:
- Increased energy without experience a sense of nervousness
- Clearer thought processes
- Improved sleep at night
- Feeling less irritable
