Believe it or not, HCG injections (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) contain a substance that your own internal organs are already producing this minute as you read this blog article! You may already know that HCG is used in pregnancy tests, but it actually has a substantial role in human development as well.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is part of the glycoprotein hormone family, including LH, FSH, and TSH, which are all important stimulating hormones secreted by the pituitary gland that the body uses for daily functions such as angiogenesis, spermatogenesis, and metabolism. Studies show that the binding of HCG to receptors on several different cells promotes a cascade of molecular reactions important for development, growth, and sustainability¹. Thanks to their impact on the body, more people are using HCG to help boost health as well as lose stubborn weight with ease.
How HCG Injections Work to Reduce Fat
Recombinant-HCG (r-HCG) recently became available for medical use and is frequently called on to help with fertility issues. It is the β component of the 237 amino acid heterodimer HCG that is featured in the popular Simeon protocol for weight loss. This subunit is quite similar in structure to that of the luteinizing hormone (LH) produced by the pituitary gland. This mimicking structure can perform many of the natural functions of LH in the endocrine system, including stimulating the gonads to produce endogenous testosterone. It is my belief that it is the testosterone production from within, along with a very strict, low-calorie diet of specific power foods outlined in the Simeon Protocol (a diet combined with HCG injections) that enhance lean muscle tissue growth, increase bone density, mobilize abnormal fat, and sculpt the body.
HCG Injections: Battling Stubborn Body Fat and Obesity
HCG injections are on the front line of the battle against obesity. The hormone is important for weight loss because it triggers the ultimate mobilization of unhealthy visceral fat that chokes our vital organs and causes the morbidity that one-third of the population faces in America today. When extra Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is injected into the body, it stimulates the body in a way that tells it to release abnormal fat stores. By resetting the hypothalamus, which is responsible for basic bodily functions like sleep, body temperature, cardiovascular function, and metabolism, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin tells the body to flush abnormal fat stores, leaving the body lean and toned in all the right places. On average, patients lose one to one-and-a-half pounds per day while injecting Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.
