What is HCG and how does it work?
HCG is a hormone that is produced by both women and men. It is more prominent in women and is produced at its highest rate during pregnancy. Essentially, this hormone pulls nutrients from fat cells in the mothers body and sends them to the developing fetus for additional nutrition. HCG is also used by people to lose weight. In this situation, introducing small amounts of HCG in a non-pregnant state results in weight loss. If administered correctly (to a female or male), people begin to burn fat in the abdominal area at a fast rate. Other areas where fat is stored including hips, thighs, back, arms and under the chin are also targeted with the HCG plan. A typical HCG program involves combining a low calorie diet and HCG usage.
HCG can be given in two forms, injections or drops that are absorbed under the tongue. Injections can be self administered or given by a physician. However, everyone that is interested in HCG must see a doctor before they can receive HCG from a distributor. This is very important because certain health problems may cause complications with HCG usage.

HCG can be a very good weight loss option for people effected by extreme obesity that interferes quality of life. HCG can give an individual a quick start to their weight loss goals and consequently provide the confidence that many need to begin their journey to good health.
