Most people thinking about pursuing the hCG diet wonder how to raise your hCG levels without having to take injections of hCG.
Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) is a hormone manufactured by the placenta in pregnant women. The reason why women produce hCG has to do with providing necessary nutrients for both the woman and the fetus. In pregnant women, the hCG level usually doubles every few hours of her pregnancy. If a woman has low levels of hCG in her blood, that usually indicates a problem, such as an imminent miscarriage.
When a physician sees a low hCG level in an expectant mother, he or she may recommend certain methods to increase the level, even though that’s no guarantee for a healthy pregnancy. If nothing is done or the physician finds no hCG in the pregnant woman, the lining of the uterus begins to deteriorate and the woman will begin her menstrual cycle.
To increase the hCG level, a doctor may recommend avoiding diuretics such as caffeine before being given the hCG test because diuretics decrease the amount of hCG in the sample by moving it more rapidly through the system. Recommendations may also include synthetic hCG injections, which is a common procedure during fertility treatments.
A recent weight loss phenomenon is based on the premise that increasing the hCG level of obese people stimulates the hypothalamus gland and resets the metabolism, thus burning fat quickly and more effectively.
Increasing the hCG level for weight loss purposes is said to be safe for both women and men and is a natural hormone, found in all humans. In non-pregnant humans, the hormone is found in body cells and is often dormant until stimulated. Those who have used hCG hormone drops or injections reported that their hunger levels were reduced and they had an abundant supply of energy while taking them.
For others, who are desperately trying to lose weight and have tried every diet, exercise program, homeopathic remedies and any other remedy that’s supposed to help drop unwanted pounds, this may be the answer to all their diet needs. People who have experienced weight loss from the hCG hormone say that they did not put the weight back on after finishing the program designed to increase the hCG level.
One side effect that has been reported by young women who have increased their hCG level by taking the synthetic injections or drops is that it affects their fertility and some experience irregular menstrual cycles. If you’re a young woman with fertility problems, you should definitely try the hCG hormone under a doctor’s care.
hCG supplements come in the form of injections and sublingual drops that can be inserted under the tongue. The FDA has recently approved hCG and now, anyone can purchase the synthetic hormone either online or from a health care provider or pharmaceutical company.
So for those wanting to know how to raise your hCG level, it seems the most effective method for losing weight is the hCG injections and possibly the sublingual drops.
