What Is HCG?

HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone present at high levels in early pregnancy.

In fact, this hormone is used as a marker in home pregnancy tests (3).

HCG has also been used to treat fertility issues in both men and women (4).

However, elevated blood levels of HCG may also be a symptom of several types of cancer, including placental, ovarian and testicular cancer (5).

A British doctor named Albert Simeons first proposed HCG as a weight loss tool in 1954.

HCG drops dosage

Always ensure you know the real strength of the HCG hormone before purchasing it. Some drops have amounts of water, or alcohol added to them, and this dilutes the recommended dosage. Knowing the content of each dosage ensures that the plan works as expected. You don’t want to start the plan, only for you to get the wrong results.

Injections, pills and drops are the three different ways in which you can take the HCG dosage. Depending on the strength of the drops, and pills purchased, as well as the amount of weight intended to be lost, the oral drops and pills should be taken between 2 and three times every day.
