HCG is all natural and found in the bodies of all humans. Some users have reported dizziness and headaches during the first few days, but these effects appear to be related to the 500 Calorie hCG diet and not the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) hormone itself. Some hCG injections users have reported tenderness and bruising at the injection site, a side-effect not associated with the use of hCG drops.
Using hCG may increase a woman’s chances of having a multiple birth pregnancy which can be high risk for both mother and child. Do not take hCG if you are pregnant or may become pregnant.
Other less serious side-effects of hCG can include but are not limited to: headache, breast tenderness and swelling and feelings of irritability and restlessness.
If you experience any side-effects while using hCG, contact your physician immediately.
What is hCG? How does hCG burn fat?
HCG is a hormone produced in large amounts during pregnancy that ensures both the mother and growing fetus are able to get enough nutrients to stay healthy. When the mother’s caloric intake drops too low, the hCG signals the brain’s hypothalamus to release the mother’s stored fat for sustenance and energy.
This same fat burning activity takes place when you take hCG drops for weight loss. Your body is signaled to release stored body fat to provide YOU with energy and nutrients. You will look and feel great as you drop down to your desired weight.
WARNING: Attempting the hCG diet or any type of very-low calorie diet WITHOUT taking hCG drops or injections can be dangerous to your health. Without the fat breakdown from the hCG, your body could go into ketosis and your metabolism could shut down.
HCG diet drops and injections should NOT be taken by anyone pregnant, nursing or under the age of 18.
