  • What is hCG and what does it do?

    Question MarkHCG stands for "Human Chorionic Gonadotropin" which is a hormone that is produced by women during the early months of pregnancy. There are actually a few different uses for hCG.

    For example, hCG can be used for fertility, weight loss and even for pregnancy testing. This is the reason that a pregnancy test will sometimes tell a woman that she is pregnant while on the HCG Diet, when in fact she is not.

    The HCG Diet is a controversial low calorie weight loss diet.

    I have seen first hand how effective the diet can be; it works very well, just as long as you follow the diet protocol the way it's supposed to be done.

    How The HCG Hormone Works

    The way that hCG works when used for weight loss is - by using low dose hCG Hormone Injections along with a strict 500 Calorie Diet, the hCG helps your body to burn fat, rather than Lean Muscle Tissue, which makes the diet work very fast and effective. Most people will lose about a pound a day.

    Although high levels of the hCG Hormone is produced mainly by women during the early months of pregnancy, the HCG Diet can be used by both men and women. This seems to cause a lot of confusion for some. But it's really quite simple.

    What most people don't know, is that men can also produce the hCG Hormone, just not near as much as women do. If a man produces more than the normal amount, which is 0.8 mIU/mL, it could possibly be a sign of Testicular Cancer.

    Because the hCG helps the body to burn fat, rather than your lean muscle tissue, it really doesn't matter if you are a man or woman, it works the same either way.

    Did you know that men could produce the hCG Hormone?
