HCG spelled out on wood blocks

In doing research about anything related to your health, you can run into many confusing acronyms. The everyday layperson can get lost trying to understand what LDL, BMR, and BMI even mean—before trying to comprehend how these things can impact health and weight.

In weight loss terminology, you may have heard about HCG before, but what exactly is it and how can it help you shed excess weight? Find out in the content below!

What Is HCG?

HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, which is a protein-based hormone that pregnant women naturally produce early in gestation. In fact, most pregnancy tests measure the HCG levels to determine whether a woman is pregnant.

But this hormone can benefit more than just this specific group. More specifically, it is often used to improve fertility in both men and women, but it is also a safe way to trigger weight loss for any human body.

How Does HCG Help You Lose Weight?

The HCG hormone sends signals to the body to use stored fat for nutrition and energy. Unlike fad diets and other methods of rapid weight loss, which usually break down muscles as well as fat, HCG actually speeds up metabolism as well as other hormones, like testosterone. As a result, HCG helps build up muscle tissue, not take it away. In this way, HCG is natural and effective to jumpstart weight loss and improve overall health.

Along with appropriate diet choices and exercise, HCG can guide the body to burn just fat, expediting weight loss in a healthy manner.

Where Can I Get HCG?

Unfortunately, you won’t find HCG supplements at your local drugstore. However, this hormone is available with medical teams that can evaluate you and your blood work and determine if HCG is appropriate for your weight loss journey. These injections are taken at the beginning, signaling that the body needs to burn reserved fat, not food eaten. As a result, fat in normal and abnormal areas become smaller, even in stubborn regions like the lower belly.

At this point, hopefully you have a firmer grasp on what HCG is and how it can help you accomplish your weight loss goals. With the assistance of a medical team, you can gain access to this supplement that naturally instructs your body what to do. So don’t wait any longer to lose those extra pounds and love what you see in the mirror and on the scale!
