HCG drops are a new trend in dieting. HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a highly diluted oral homeopathic that aides in detoxification. It also works as obesity management when used in conjunction with a low calorie diet. People who use hCG drops tend to be those who turn to calorie restriction or are at high risk of health complications stemming from obesity.
HCG is a hormone that occurs in the body during pregnancy to ensure both mother and child are sustained. The drops convert deep fat reserves around the belly, buttocks and thighs into energy. It has the same effect when used with a low calorie diet. Not only does the fat melt away, but also the metabolism rate is reset at a higher rate so fat continues to burn even after the diet is no longer used. This prevents the weight from coming back.
When a person uses HCG drops, it is recommended that he or she not engage in strenuous exercise. Still, the drops preserve muscles as they burn fat. The use of these drops is also meant to promote an overall healthier lifestyle. It is suggested that the user eat healthier foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and calcium-rich foods as well as decrease consumption of sugar, salts and processed foods. Following this regimen may result in the user losing an average of one pound a day.
Unlike regular HCG, a prescription is not needed to purchase the formula in drop form. These HCG drops also cost less than injections. However, it is important that someone seeking the drops know that they are authentic. Some consist mostly of alcohol and water, so these drops should be avoided. It should also be used properly, in small amounts placed under the tongue several times during the day to keep the amount of HCG consistent.
