What is HCG?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is a hormone that is most often associated with pregnant women but is also produced in small amounts by non-pregnant females and males. In the 1950s a British endocrinologist named A.T.W Simeons found that HCG promoted the burning of non-essential fat when administered to an individual using a very low calorie diet.
What is HCGâ€™s role in weight loss?
There are three types of fat in the body:
- Structural fat, which cushions the organs
- Essential fat, which acts as the bodyâ€™s fuel reserve
- Non â€“ Essential fat, which accumulates around the hips, thighs, waist, and stomach
Normally, when an individual is on a very low-calorie diet the body gets the additional energy it requires by metabolizing lean tissue (muscle) leaving non-essential fat deposits. Dr. Simeons noticed that HCG reversed the order, encouraging the body to release its non-essential fat reserves first sparing lean muscle.
HCG is design to:
- Reset the hypothalamus to increase metabolism
- Eliminate toxins
- Regulate blood sugar levels
- Control appetite and reduce cravings
- Burn hard to lose fat
Sermorelin/GHRP-6 is a synthetic amino acid that stimulates the bodyâ€™s natural production of Human Growth Hormone (HGH). Human growth hormone is produced by the pituitary gland in the brain and is responsible for the necessary growth in children as well as increasing anabolic activity and lean body mass. It helps regulate the bodyâ€™s metabolism of proteins, electrolytes, carbohydrates, and controls how fats are utilized and lean muscle is increased. Human growth hormone is considered a master hormone and affects all the hormones and organs in the body. It has repairing and restorative abilities that can help reverse cell damage, improve post-exercise recovery, improve immune response, and increase skin thickness and bone density. Deficiency of Growth Hormone has been implicated in the decline of cognitive ability and the development of dementia.
Human Growth Hormone is released during deep sleep and through pulsations throughout the day that are determined in large part by the bodyâ€™s â€œcircadian rhythms.â€ Human Growth Hormone levels are monitored by lab work checking for an active metabolite of HGH called insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) which is secreted by the liver in response to HGH levels. Sermorelin/GHRP-6 stimulates HGH production naturally by keeping the bodyâ€™s own negative feed-back system in place, thus practically eliminating any potential for overdosing on HGH.
Phentermine is an appetite suppressant used to aid in weight loss. Phentermine works by reducing cravings and hunger, increasing thirst to encourage more water intake, and as a stimulant to increase physical activity to burn more calories and increase metabolism. Phentermine combined with a nutritional and exercise program helps with weight reduction.
Human Chorionic Gonadotrophic (HCG) was first used in the treatment of obesity disorders by a British doctor and PhD, ATW Simeons of the renowed Salvator Mundi International Hospital in Rome, Italy back in the 1950â€™s. Daily injections of HCG combined with a very low calorie diet helps with the breakdown of fats for the consumption of energy and targets the â€œhard to loseâ€ fat without losing lean muscle. It aids in stabilizing blood glucose levels and enhances the production of human growth hormone form the pituitary gland according to the Journal of American Collective Nutrition, 2004 Dec. 23 (6:Suppl) 631S-636S. Despite the finding by specialized experts in the field of Preventative Health care, the FDA requires the following disclaimer: â€œThis weight reduction treatment includes the use of HCG, a drug which has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence the HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from calorie reduction, that it causes a more attractive or â€œnormalâ€ distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie restricted diets.â€
