Off late use of HCG drops is recommended for people targeting weight loss. But there is a lot of ambiguity in the minds of people with relation to these drops and their usage. Some of the most common Faq's related to HCG drops are:
Q. What does HCG mean and how does it help in weight loss?
A. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin also referred to as HCG is a kind of hormone that is produced in women during their pregnancy. In fact it is the Hypothalamus region of the brain that triggers the release of this hormone. This hormone when released in the body helps the embryo get access to stored fats in its mom's body thus helping it grow.
Q. How would this work in case of men and non pregnant women?
A. Dr A. T. W. Simeons conducted a series of tests sometime during the 1950's on how HCG can help men and non pregnant women. His studies proved that HCG alone does not result in weight loss. Generally a low calorie diet aids in weight loss but only for a limited period of time. When the body feels that the calorie intake is not adequate enough to meet its daily requirements, it starts deriving energy from muscle tissues instead of fat. This results in a drastic increase of body fat percentage.
Q. How effective are HCG drops in weight loss?
A. Dr A.T.W. Simeons found that HCG drops backed by healthy diet and regular exercise can work wonders. Besides shedding those excess pounds, people who have switched over to use of HCG drops also experienced other health benefits like a drop in cholesterol and blood sugar levels.
Q. Is HCG available in any other form other than drops?
A. Besides drops, HCG is also available in the form of injections. These injections need to be administered under the supervision of a doctor directly into the muscle tissue. However, they are slightly expensive than the drops.
Q. Is there any special diet that I need to follow while I am using HCG drops?
A. There is a prescribed HCG diet protocol that patients need to adhere to if they look forward to draw the benefits of weight loss. HCG diet is usually well balanced and highly nutritious as it includes a lot of proteins, vegetables, fruits but very little amounts of starch.
Q. Is exercise mandatory while I am on HCG program?

Since HCG recommends only 500 calorie diet, rigorous exercise may leave you exhausted. However moderate exercise or walk for at least 20 to 30 minutes a day is recommended.
