Homeopathic HCG Vs Pure HCG – A Comparison Study

The HCG diet is hands down the most popular and doctor recommended treatment for obesity in the world today.  It’s easy to see why this is the case once you take a long hard look at many of the studies surrounding its use.  Many researchers for several decades have investigated the use of this hormone and its impact on user’s ability to lose weight and stay healthy.  The results are quite promising indeed.  On average users of HCG lost 20 to 30 pounds per month of use, while also strictly following the protocol.  However, if someone just followed the protocol for dieting without the hormone they lost around 25% this level (or one fourth as much total weight).  For this reason it’s being prescribed all over the world by physicians to help people combat their appetite, increase metabolism and help them reach their desired weight.

Homeopathic or Real HCG?

Traditionally HCG is administered to patients via daily injections.  This is a highly effective method for delivery, but is fraught with issues for the user.  Many people experience considerable pain and discomfort during injections, as they must do it regularly which can be difficult.  Typically this injection is not administered via a doctor, but instead yourself.  In addition, it’s very expensive to do this (beyond the costs of the injection kits).  HCG purified from your doctor and regular checkups often run in the mid hundreds of dollars a regimen.  A regimen of 44 days often costs $500 to $1000.  This is difficult for many people to manage, as it’s almost never covered by insurance.  As a result, people often cannot afford daily injections.  A popular alternative that many people now use daily is HCG drops.  These drops are placed under the user’s tongue and absorbed directly into the body that way.  This can be a much cheaper, but equally effective way to take the hormone.  This is not without obstacles as well, unfortunately.

Selecting an HCG Drops Product: Homeopathic or Real HCG

Many people probably first stumble across homeopathic or “hormone-free” products when they begin to search for HCG diet drops.  However, these products do not typically contain any of the real hormone.  If they do, it’s just a few molecules.  Typically for injections you would receive well over 5000 IUs of the hormone (international units) over a regimen.  So do these products actually work?  Unsurprisingly to most you actually need the real HCG hormone in order to receive the results on this diet.  There’s no such thing as “imitation” or substitute forms of the hormone out there.  You need to take at least 150 IUs a day, as the studies have clearly demonstrated, to see the 1-2 pounds per day of weight loss.

There’s a huge difference in results when a person takes homeopathic (just another term for a highly diluted substance) when compared to real and pure HCG drops.  As an example, a person who is taking homeopathic HCG may receive a single molecule of the hormone from a dosage.  However, this is so little that it cannot even be measured by any tests, let alone used by your body.  You need a certain dosage for this to work.  If you do, the average weight loss for a full regimen is around 30 to 40 pounds.  Without it, you probably won’t lose over 20 pounds.

Identifying pure HCG can be a challenge, but it’s certainly possible.  Real HCG always requires refrigeration, and should have a finite shelf life, usually only a few weeks to a few months.  Good suppliers can extend this to around 90 days (if opened and refrigerated) but this is the maximum.  If you see a product that claims to last “3 months” it definitely isn’t real.  In addition things like the dosage specified, or other factors should be clearly indicated.  It should be listed in IUs or milligrams of purified powder otherwise it’s fake.  Many retailers market them as “3x, 6x” or some other made up value.  These products are not real.   While it’s certainly true that HCG works for weight loss and provides much in the way of results, it’s important to remember to get the real deal, and not one of these imitations.

Challenges We Face When Tackling Obesity Alone

Staying in shape and remaining healthy are challenging tasks, not made any easier by our body’s own natural responses to the effort. Whenever we cut calories, our body will actually almost shut down it’s metabolism. This can be a huge problem whenever someone begins to diet as they will quickly be unable to lose weight nearly as quickly as when they started. When this occurs, the most common effect is that people grow discouraged and wind up quitting their diet early on. This can be a humongous challenge for anyone who is attempting to shed pounds quickly and with the most effectiveness possible. As a result, people need methods that will help them increase their metabolism, decrease their appetite and increase their chances of success on their diet.

Capsules for Obesity Control?
Capsules for Obesity Control?

Many people try a lot of fad weight loss products in the hopes they’ll actually produce results. Unfortunately this is rarely the case, and many people who try to lose weight in this manner will ultimately fail. These products, particularly all of these “generic” capsules that are often sold some sort of miracle weight loss aid. Unfortunately, almost never have these products been clinically tested and proven to work in an objective lab setting. People need real solutions, ones that are clinically proven to work and generate results.

The Challenges of Identifying Effective Treatments

When you’re deciding which method to try, or what product to help you lose ewight, you will be trying to find a needle in a haystack. There are literally hundreds of treatments out there that claim to be effective, and few actually do work. You need to look first to what researchers have identified as something that works. This can also be a challenge, but most papers on any sort of product will be very objective, as they have to go through peer review processes that ensure what they say is accurate. For example, a recent study about garcinia cambogia clearly identified it as a highly effective and very potent weight loss aid. These are the kinds of research results you’re looking for.

Garcinia Cambogia, for example, works by absorbing part of the fat we take in from our food. In doing so it keeps your body from having access to that. In addition it also decreases your appetite, helping you to stop eating as often and to enable to you eat with more control. However, many products do not work like this at all. It’s important to select one that meets your needs but also that will work with what you need it to do most. Do you need it to boost your metabolism, decrease your appetite or absorb fat you take in? You would want to select the product accordingly.

For the most part keeping your metabolism up is where the challenge lies. Your metabolism can drop by up to 80% when you begin to cut your food intake. As a result, you will burn far fewer calories each day. Most people begin to struggle to maintain their weight loss at this stage of their diet. If your weight loss slowed down to 80% what it was a few days ago, could you maintain your diet? Most people find it difficult for good reason. This is why we recommend you select products in particular that boost metabolism and fat burning. These are the products that work best and enable you to lose the most weight. Unfortunately there are only a few products out there that work in this manner.
