BENEFITS OF HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin)
HCG is a pro-hormone – meaning it encourages the production of other hormones in the body. HCG is produced by pregnant women, which is why you may hear some people refer to it as the “pregnancy hormone.”
HCG has always had a place in supplemental health – the hormone has been marketed for weight loss since Dr. ATW Simeon promoted injections of the hormone as a fat burning aid in 1954. In recent years, hCG popularity has seen a resurgence, and it is often used as an adjunct to weight loss plans. More than one in every three adults in America is considered overweight or obese, so it comes as no surprise that people are looking for a boost. Luckily, HCG has a number of health benefits. Here are five important ones to keep in mind:
1. hCG Can Help You Lose Weight
When coupled with a healthy diet and moderate exercise, hCG injections can help aid in weight loss efforts. You should be able to see changes in yourself in just a few days, which in turn increases the motivation to stick with your supplement, diet and exercise regimen.
With weight loss comes a whole host of other benefits, including:
- Lower cholesterol, which helps to reduce the risk for heart complications
- Better weight distribution. Weight loss from hCG tends to occur in so-called “problem areas,” such as the mid-section, arms and thighs. This helps to create a more well-proportioned body.
2. hCG Can Help Improve Your Sex Life
hCG encourages hormonal balance in the body, so it follows that sexual endocrines like testosterone are released into the body. This leads to an increased libido. Additionally, hCG can help to reduce the risk for erectile dysfunction, which commonly occurs as men age and they start producing less and less testosterone naturally.
3.hCG Can Help Improve Performance at the Gym
Having a lower body weight means you can enjoy improved performance and endurance while working out. You can last longer at the gym and maximize your workouts. HCG also helps to restrict muscle mass loss that comes as a consequence of sticking to a low-calorie diet. You can enjoy increased muscle retention without also sabotaging your weight loss goals.
In many cases, athletes take low doses of hCG as a safer alternative to steroids. Steroid use can shrink the testicles after habitual use, which causes lowered testosterone and sperm production. This is the reason why hCG has become the preferred testosterone booster.
4. hCG Can Be Taken in Either Injection or Tablet form
hCG is conveniently available to its consumers by prescription injections or the form of sublingual tablets. Being able to take hCG in more than one way is convenient for people who have different goals. Your physique generally determines which form is right for you. Men who want to experience the benefits of improved testosterone levels and higher energy respond more quickly to hCG injections, while anyone who is simply taking hCG for the weight loss element can opt for the tablets if they feel more comfortable.
hCG is a pro-hormone with many benefits and if used properly under a doctor’s supervision, is very safe.
A prescription medication, hCG is injected subcutaneously. hCG is also available in a sublingual tablet where the hCG is absorbed through the capillaries under the tongue.
HCG benefits in WOMEN
HCG is a Natural Hormone
During pregnancy, the placenta produces the hormone HCG, which has an important role both in letting the body know you’re pregnant and in maintaining the pregnancy. Pregnant females naturally produce human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). Injecting this substance as a treatment can result in excellent weight-loss benefits for women. HCG injections work well with female body chemistry, and help women eliminate fat in unwanted areas, such as the thighs and hips. These injections or tablets also help with weight loss and hunger control.
After pregnancy, HCG is believed to help avoid post-partum depression and return the body to its pre-pregnancy shape. HCG has shown effectiveness for people who want to increase muscle mass and lose weight.
Peri-menopausal women report that HCG helps to balance their sexual hormones; testosterone, estrogen and progesterone, helping them have better mood and better energy levels.
Both men and women use hCG for weight loss
HCG benefits for MEN:
Men can benefit from HCG injections to lose fat stores, improve exercise performance, improve sperm production, jump start testosterone levels, and correct sexual abnormalities HCG works as a luteinizing hormone, signaling the testes to produce more testosterone. HCG is available as a prescription medication available in injection form and sublingual tablet form. Men who use HCG injections often perform their own
HCG acts like luteinizing hormone (LH). In males, LH tells the testes to produce testosterone. In men undergoing hormone replacement therapy, their testes may stop producing testosterone, so hCG can remind their testes to keep producing testosterone.
Men suffering from androgen disorders take hCG to jump start their testosterone production. Following a round of anabolic steroids, weight-lifters might use hCG to restore their natural testosterone. HCG also raises sperm counts, so it can improve male fertility. In pubescent males, hCG may correct sexual abnormalities.
Most men undergoing testosterone replacement for Hypogonadism or Low T use HCG to minimize the side effects that can come from taking testosterone replacement such as testicle shrinkage and nipple tenderness.
