If you’ve been trying to lose weight and doing some research, you may have come across three letters H-C-G. They stand for “human chorionic gonadotropin,” which is best known as a pregnancy hormone that is produced by the embryo soon after conception. HCG is the hormone that is used to test for pregnancy, and it directs the bodies of pregnant women to use their own fat as a source of calories for the developing fetus.
But beyond its benefit for pregnant women, HCG has more recently been found to help the body burn fat, so it is used in weight-loss programs. At Affirm Health Center, we offer HCG weight loss therapy.
What is HCG?
Human chorionic gonadotropin is meant to help the corpus luteum remain intact. The corpus luteum, which is part of the ovary, is integral in the production of progesterone, an important hormone during pregnancy. It is thought HCG also heightens a woman’s immunity during pregnancy.
How does it come into play with weight loss?
Beyond its benefits to pregnant women, researchers recently discovered that HCG can help the body burn fat. This characteristic, when combined with a low-calorie diet, helps people trying to lose weight to burn fat instead of muscle. That’s where its value comes into play in weight loss, as in most diets the dieter ends up burning muscle before fat.
The Affirm HCG Plan
When you type HCG into Google, you’ll find tons of pages with tons of information on HCG. But it’s important to have a true plan when using HCG for weight loss. We’ve done that at Affirm.
Here are the components of our HCG Weight Loss Program:
- Oral HCG that is exactly as effective as injected HCG.
- Set of critical supplements that boost nutrient absorption (a must considering you’re only consuming 500 calories per day), increase metabolism, and control blood sugar and insulin spikes that slow fat metabolism.
- Complete directions and recipes for getting the results you seek.
- Consultations and Q&A with our clinic to guide you from beginning to end during your successful weight loss regime.
