I would like to clarify the difference in these two products. The HCG injections kits you see sold on websites should be pharmaceutical grade and prescribed by a full-time staff physician. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin drops come in two forms: Homeopathic HCG drops and Pharmaceutical HCG drops.
HCG Injections vs. HCG Drops
When it comes to pharmaceutical (prescription) Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, both HCG Injections and HCG Drops are real HCG. Also, both show benefits with weight loss. However, the rate of prescription HCG drops is twice as high. This is because the drops do not absorb well when administered under the tongue. The problem is that the tiny blood vessels under the tongue cannot absorb the large Human Chorionic Gonadotropin particles.
Many recommend that HCG Drops only be in use as an alternative to HCG injections. This alternative is also used when the patient has a real phobia towards needles. Incidentally, HCG shots syringes are tiny insulin type syringes 5/16 of an inch long and very narrow (30 gauge).
The FDA & HCG Drops
Listen to what the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has to say when it comes to Homeopathic HCG Drops:
“The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers to steer clear of these “homeopathic” human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) weight-loss products. They are sold in the form of oral drops, pellets, and sprays and can be found online and in some retail stores.”
“These weight-loss products, sold online and in some retail stores, have been targeted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The agencies are warning seven companies that they are violating federal laws by selling drugs that have not been approved by FDA, and that make unsupported claims.”
FDA labeling for the approved HCG drug products requires the following statement about the use of HCG injections for weight loss:
“HCG has 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.”
