High Potency HCG Diet Drops
People often look for weight loss solutions that can provide success and have been proven to do so under the scrutiny of scientific examination. HCG drops are one such treatment, with an extremely high degree of objective success in various studies. HCG, which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin has be used for decades in this regard. However, the first drops most people will encounter will likely be of the homoepathic or hormone-free varieties. In both cases these will not contain the actual hormone, and simply be marketed as if they do. Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to tell the difference between the real thing and these imitators. As such, it's important to ensure that any HCG products being taken include the actual hormone, otherwise users risk poor results and even overall damage to their health. A minimum of 150 IUs of the hormone is needed per day to generate results, and these fake products usually don't contain even a single IU. For the most part, the various drops out there are going to only be of dubious quality without containing enough HCG to be effective. The labels of real products will often belie their authenticity, as they clearly state that they are non-homeopathic.
The HCG diet program works in a fairly simple, but totally unique manner. Rather than the classic method of attacking the symptoms of obesity, by increasinge a user's energy artifically or otherwise, HCG actually directly targets the causes. It boosts the metabolism of the user and decreases their overall appetite, and does so through direct biochemical reactions with the brain itself. This is a unique characteristic, only found in the use of this hormone. It allows people to take in HCG each day, through drops ideally, and then lose weight they normally would not have been able to lose. In various studies on this topic, usually involving injections of the hormone, users lose 20 to 30 pounds within a single treatment protocol. HCG drops are a great alternative to injections, as if they are real HCG, they are much cheaper and completely pain free. People simply need to place a certain number of drops under their tongue, and allow the HCG to absorb into their bloodstream. Real HCG is always alcohol-free, as alcohol will damage the hormone. So this is a certain way to tell the real HCG apart. HCG Plus is totally free of this, and it is clearly listed in the ingredients under the FAQ as well. HCG diet drops are powerful, effective and a great way to save money losing weight on this fantastic program.
Fundamentals of the HCG Drops Program
The HCG weight loss program is generally broken up into three distinct phases. Each phase involves a specific set of guidelines, meant to maximize the overall success of individuals throughout their weight loss with HCG. Phase one begins with a loading phase, for at least 2 days. This requires people to take in as much fat as they can in order to mobilize the stored lipids they have. Phase two is often called the very low calorie diet, which reduces the user's intake of food considerably. HCG actually boosts the person's metabolism directly, and decreases their appetite as well. This allows for them to go on a heavily reduced calorie diet, and not have much difficulty at all doing so. Generally, Dr. Simeons recommended people go on a 500 calorie per day program, but modern methods allow for upwards of 700 per day instead. This generates weight loss on the order of 0.5-2 pounds per day, and does so naturally.
Phase three of the program is the maintenance period of the diet. Once a user reaches their ideal weight, they can stop taking the hormone as long as they've been on the regimen for at least 23 days. Once this occurs, users turn their attention to retaining the weight they've lost in the long term. A diet program is prescribed for thise phase, but it is fairly unregimented. People are to go onto a 1500-2000 calorie per day diet, and avoid a wide variety of processed foods. Beyond that, however, they can go back to their normal foods each day. It's not too difficult using the techniques of the HCG diet program, along with the hormone itself, to lose weight and keep it off on the long term. There are no heavily restrictive dieting rules or anything of the sort after the user reaches their goal weight. It's relatively straightforward until the end, and the HCG significantly boosts total weight lost.
Comparing Non-homeopathic and Homeopathic HCG
Whenever selecting among the various brands of HCG, it can be difficult to distinguish the real hormone from the various 'alternatives'. Alternatives to HCG are everywhere, but they simply do not work. Hormone-free is generally what they are called by these retailers, but his only belies their complete uselessness. In thousands of studies, HCG has indicated its power. Yet in none of these studies has any other ingredient ever been identified to offer the same benefits as the real hormone. Looking at the ingredients on the labels of these products, it's clear what people are paying for. These products are rarely more than expensive vitamin supplements, which do not even contain the actual HCG hormone at all. Homeopathic HCG is of similar quality generally. Homeopathic HCG may contain a tiny amount of the hormone in each bottle, but it's usually not enough to be effective. At least 125 IUs have to be given each day by any treatment protocol in order for success to occur. Homeopathic HCG drops almost never contain close to these levels.
Non-homeopathic HCG drops are a totally different ball game. These drops provide high levels of the HCG hormone, and they do so consistently. Similar to injections, good drops of this type will deliver at least 125 IUs per day, but are also a whole lot cheaper and completely pain-free. Injections can be quite expensive, averaging well into the thousands of dollars per treatment. However, with real HCG drops, it's much cheaper. There are some important ways to tell the difference between real HCG, and these other products. Homeopathic HCG often uses made up values like "4x, 10x, 14x" on their labels, supposedly to indicate the total concentration in their product. Unfortunately, this is not a valid way to measure HCG in liquid form. HCG comes in powders, at 99.9% purity or higher, yet when a powder is placed into any liquid, it has to be measured differently. HCG needs to be measured as IUs/bottle or milligrams per bottle in order for it to be valid (the latter being what is called "molals"). As such, real HCG will always clearly indicate this somewhere on the website or in the instructions. A sure sign of fakes, is the lack of this quality.
