We have had many of people really wanting to understand the difference between taking HCG drops vs HCG injections, so we want to educate everyone on the main differences between the two.
While HCG (Human Choriogonadotropin) injections may seem controversial, they are safe and deliver fast results. Much of the controversy surrounding HCG stems from “Homeopathic” products once offered by vendors. The hormone for hCG injection is released in women’s body during the early stages of pregnancy.
The hormone’s purpose is to ensure the development of the fetus by using the mother’s fat stores as nutrition. HCG liquefies fat stores and releases them into the bloodstream, allowing the developing fetus to utilize the nutrients.
By injecting this hormone, the body begins to use its fat reserves as fuel. One significant upside of using HCG injections above other weight loss products is the fact that as the fat is used, the extra skin regains its original elasticity. The injections are given at different points in the body, including the stomach, upper arms, and hips. It is recommended that these injections be taken in the morning, and the typical dose is 1 cc.
The diet usually used with HCG injections is known as the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). This diet, coupled with the injections, makes the body believe it needs to utilize all its extra fat, without losing muscle. A typical VLCD diet allows up to 500 calories a day and focuses on using raw, organic foods. No food is allotted for breakfast, however black coffee or tea is acceptable. Some patients use stevia as a sweetener.
After the first day on a diet, one can eat 1/2 a grapefruit or 1/2 of an apple. Lunch may consist of 100 g of protein: Chicken breast, veal or fish, accompanied by a vegetable, a slice of whole grain toast, and a handful size portion of fruit. Dinner consists of the same allotment as lunch. Herbs are encouraged for flavor diversity, as well as adding in new produce items and fruits.
Aside from being expensive, not all people would like to inject their body with a serum. HCG injections require preparation and mixing before administration which can be quite cumbersome and inconvenient. If you chose injections, it would be pretty obvious that there a lot of additional supplies such as syringes, needles, bacteriostatic water, and bottles needed for mixing and storage.
Alternatively, HCG drops are usually in a homeopathic form. Homeopathic remedies are made by taking a very small fraction of the actual hormone, and then it is made into a mixture. Most mixtures contain L-Ornithine, L-Arginine, L-Carnitine, L-Glutamine, and active water. These mixtures are to ensure the hCG substance to be absorbed quickly into the bloodstream, and to support the real function of hCG itself.
The difference is only the amount of hCG hormone which is inserted into the body. Regardless of which option you choose, both can give the same effectiveness of hCG diet, as long as you follow the correct protocol or phase.
