What is HCG?
What Are HCG Diet Injections?
These injections use the HCG hormone to enable you to go on a calorie restriction or calorie deficit diet without experiencing feelings of severe hunger. The HCG diet injections also deter you from losing muscle while you diet by elevating hormone levels in your body to counteract any muscle breakdown. The HCG diet helps in improving metabolism and getting rid of unwanted fat in your body, which helps you lose weight quickly.
A restricted calorie diet can help in slowing down the body’s metabolism and push the body into survival mode, resulting in the breakdown of muscular tissues. A restricted calorie diet may end up causing an increased risk of gallstones and burning of vital fat important for our body. HCG is believed to utilize the extra, unwanted fat that is stored deep in the body and preserve essential fat and muscle.
Other than being used for the treatment of obesity, HCG injections are also used to treat infertility in women. When administered in higher doses, HCG has been known to help increase sperm and testosterone levels in men. It is also used in fertility treatments to help stimulate ovulation in women.
How Do These Injections Work?
Who are the right candidates for HCG?

Patients with medical conditions should consider other weight loss programs and follow a regular fitness regime and eat healthily.
