Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG), has been safely used to enhance and accelerate weight loss for over 60 years. HCG is a naturally occurring hormone produced in large quantities during the early stages pregnancy. This hormone allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both mother and baby. For weight loss, research suggest a significantly less dose or injection results in a weight loss of a pound per day, and often more, when accompanied by a very low calorie diet of approximately 500 calories. In a famine state, the very low calorie intake is what activates the hCG hormones to seek those stubborn fat stores that you want to get rid of.

Unfortunately, no matter how well you eat you can no longer get the nutrients that your body needs to optimize your health. We are getting bombarded with pesticides, genetically modified foods, pharmaceutical drugs, and chemicals on a daily basis. It’s hard enough to know what foods are healthy or not. We are constantly being told to make our diet low fat, low carb, gluten free, or sugar free. There is a lot of confusing information and marketing going on in the food industry today.
Because of depleted soils many foods lack the minerals they used to have. Genetically modified foods (GMO) are bred to look appealing not to improve their nutrient content. GMO corn makes its own insecticide and GMO soy resists herbicides. How do you know if you are buying genetically modified foods? You don’t because in the United States food companies are not required to tell you either way. Also, pharmaceutical drugs can deplete nutrients in your body. For example, statin drugs deplete your CoQ10 which is essential in energy production.
