Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a natural hormone produced by women during pregnancy that has some pretty intriguing and useful medical effects when injected for other purposes. HCG is very structurally similar to another hormone known as Luteinizing Hormone. In men, Luteinizing Hormone encourages the body to naturally produce Testosterone. One unfortunate symptom of Bio-Identical Testosterone, when prescribed alone, is that it suppresses the activity of the testes, while also reducing fertility by suppressing sperm production.
When HCG injections are combined with Testosterone therapy, however, it is possible to experience all the fantastic benefits of Low-T treatment while still remaining fertile, and with healthy sperm production. HCG stimulates the pituitary gland to release Luteinizing Hormone, which is responsible for the production of Testosterone. For bodybuilding, Testosterone production helps to promote muscle mass development and strengthening.
The HCG Diet
In addition to promoting normal sexual function in men taking Testosterone, HCG therapy can also be used as an effective diet therapy for both men and women. When used in combination with a low caloric diet, HCG stimulates the body to continue burning fat, rather than burning muscle, which normally happens when a patient undergoes caloric restriction.
It was found out that pregnant women, who seem to be malnourished, do not end up delivering malnourished babies. The HCG produced by the cells of the placenta stimulate cells to burn adipose body deposits. By taking HCG injections you can turn on your body’s natural fat-burning infrastructure which will give you the energy you need to live and stay healthy while lowering your overall caloric intake.
Right now our prescribing physicians are using HCG combined with a healthy diet of nutrient-dense foods to assist patients with losing weight while maintaining muscle mass. Because HCG helps the body burn fats stored in the body, proper nutrition can be achieved without taking in more calories during the duration of the diet. The combination of HCG injections with a low calorie diet regimen can help the body to lose weight faster without risking the loss of existing muscle tissue.
HCG in Women
Pregnant women produce Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. HCG is directly developed by cells of the placenta. The placenta provides nutrients for the development of the fertilized egg. Naturally, HCG levels reaches peak during the 8th to 11th week of pregnancy, but decreases throughout the pregnancy period. HCG is detected by examining the blood of the pregnant woman.
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin plays a big role in the ovulation of women. It is used to stimulate ovulation before the sequence of insemination for artificial reproduction. During pregnancy, HCG provides strength to the immune system of the body, making it impossible for genetically communicative diseases to affect fetus development. HCG protects fetal development during the first trimester of pregnancy by thickening the uterus lining.
HCG therapy was first used as a fertility treatment for women, but as researchers explored the possibilities associated with the treatment further, they found that HCG injections offered a variety of positive benefits for both sexes.
