Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. HCG has been safely used for more than 50 years. After being discovered in 1927, HCG has become an FDA approved fertility treatment for both men and women.
HCG mimics another hormone, luteinizing hormone (LH), naturally produced in both men and women. LH which is produced and released by cells in the anterior pituitary gland, is crucial in regulating the function of the testes in men and the ovaries in women. LH controls sex steroid production: Testosterone in men and Estradiol in women. The secretion of LH from the anterior pituitary gland is regulated through a system called the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPA). Gonadotropin-releasing hormone is released from the hypothalamus and binds to receptors in the anterior pituitary gland to stimulate both the synthesis and release of LH and FSH. The released LH is carried in the bloodstream where it binds to receptors in the testes and ovaries. Using this mechanism, LH can control the functions of the testes and ovaries themselves.
In men, LH stimulates Leydig cells in the testes to produce testosterone. As men age the volume of hypothalamus produced GnRH declines and causes the pituitary gland to release less LH. The reduction in the volume of LH decreases the available LH in the blood stream to stimulate the testes to produce testosterone. Because HCG mimics LH and increases testosterone production in the testes it is administered to patients to increase endogenous (natural) testosterone production.
In women, LH carries out different roles in the two halves of the menstrual cycle. In weeks one to two of the menstrual cycle, LH is required to stimulate the ovarian follicles in the ovary to produce the female sex hormone Estradiol. Around day 14 of the cycle, a surge in LH levels causes the ovarian follicle to tear and release a mature oocyte (egg) from the ovary, a process called ovulation. For the remainder of the cycle (weeks three to four), the remnants of the ovarian follicle form a corpus luteum. LH stimulates the corpus luteum to produce progesterone, which is required to support the early stages of pregnancy, if fertilization occurs.
HCG for Weight Loss
The use of HCG has been a safe and effective alternative for treating those millions of individuals afflicted by obesity for many years and there is research to support its safety, but minimal research supporting its effectiveness. Because we know the effects of HCG on luteinizing hormone, weight loss could be potentiated due to this simple influence. Much of the skepticism for using HCG for weight loss stems from the reduction of calories to 500 calories a day. We have found that you can modify this calorie intake to 1000 calories a day in combination with HCG injections with good results. The amount of weight lost during treatment does not differ significantly from other treatments involving low calorie diets. What makes treatment with HCG so effective is that patients lose significantly more body fat than patients that only diet.
The weight loss impact is seen in a changed body contour, with particular impact on those hard to reduce areas such as thighs and buttocks. This could be related directly to the influences of HCG rather than low calorie eating.
HCG For Detox
By reducing inflammation and balancing hormone levels, the body can achieve an elevated state of well-being. We have found a “detox” or hormonal reset can be achieved with using our HCG protocol. Although HCG has not been recognized by the FDA to be effective for weight loss, most people do report weight reduction when using the hormone. HCG has specific and well-documented effects on the body as demonstrated during pregnancy and fertility treatments, which is why this hormone’s effects are also utilized in other medical conditions treatments. HCG injections are effectively used for the treatment of female and male infertility, with a distinct effect on the hormone system. HCG mimics another hormone, luteinizing hormone (LH), naturally produced in both men and women. LH which is produced and released by cells in the anterior pituitary gland, is crucial in regulating the function of the testes in men and the ovaries in women. It is these HCG effects that play a role in metabolism and would explain why many experience weight reductions. There are also new studies surfacing using HCG in the treatment for chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, hormone imbalance and anti-aging. If you are suffering from chronic conditions, HCG and strict lifestyle modifications are a realistic therapy to help aid in the reduction of inflammation, pain, obesity, depression, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and other hormone associated conditions.
