A homeopathic approach toward weight loss, HCG Drop takes advantages of the HCG hormone, a fertility hormone. FDA has yet to approve the utilization of this hormone for weight loss.
HCG Drop is said to help you drop 30 pounds in a month by combining a very low calorie diet with a drop of the hormone to the tongue.
List of Ingredients
The product has only one ingredient, which is the HCG hormone itself.
As stated, the Drop is made of the HCG hormone; it needs to be dropped on your tongue, just a single drop every time. Recently the HCG Drop also makes an appearance in other products, such as shakes. The claim is that there are scientific proofs to support the effectiveness of HCG Drop in the field of weight loss.
These proofs are nowhere to be found, however; keep in mind that FDA does not approve of HCG Drop either. It seems that it is the strict low calorie restriction of 500 calories is the one that causes the amazing weight drop, rather than the HCG treatment itself.
- Easy application, just a drop on the tongue.
- It is not FDA approved.
- HCG is a hormone related to fertility and usage on men may cause an increase in testosterone levels.
- Possible side effects: irritability, depression, tenderness on the breasts, restlessness, headaches and water retention. A rare but serious side effect is the ovarian hyperstimulation, which causes feet and leg swelling, weight gain, irregular urination, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, as well as swelling and pain on the abdomen.
- The extremely low calorie diet (500 calories a day) may backfire and slow down your metabolism.
The issue with HCG Drop is not as much as the manipulation of the hormone, it is the drastic cut on the calorie consumption. There is no way it is going to help with your metabolism or energy levels. 500 calories a day definitely helps you lose weight but the drop on energy is going to make you feel lousy.In the near future, your body is going to anticipate the minimal calorie intake by slowing down your metabolism, effectively failing your weight loss program.
HCG does not come recommended, at all. It is highly advisable that you find some other weight loss product which promotes healthy eating, preferably while encouraging exercise routine as well. Good weight loss supplements provide you with thermogenic fat burners, as well as appetite suppressant ingredients; with instructions to drink a lot of water on top of it.
