HCG Injections Over Drops

A common question asked by potential HCG dieters is, why use injections over drops? There are  many reasons people may prefer to use the injectable form of HCG for the HCG diet.

First and foremost, it is extremely important to make sure that whatever method of HCG you choose is real HCG. If the HCG product you may be eyeing isn't directly from a  physician or have some sort of medical approval process wherein you obtain prescription HCG from the doctor or from a telemedicine company like, then chances are, you are wasting your money on diluted or homeopathic HCG. Real HCG is vital to see success on the HCG diet and to complete the diet safely. The FDA has made recent rulings that prohibit HCG from being sold over the counter. This means that real HCG is only obtainable by prescription from a licensed physician. So, if you see "HCG" drops at the drugstore, beware, it's not real HCG. Homeopathic forms of HCG are typically found in the oral drop form. That does not mean, however, that the oral drops cannot be real HCG as well. Real  HCG can be found as injections, drops, and pellets as long as it is prescription and from a licensed physician.

The HCG drops and pellets are both dissolved and absorbed sublingually or under-the-tongue. One of the most common reasons many HCG dieters choose the injections over the drops is because of the absorption. NOTE: As long as the HCG is pure and real, ALL methods of HCG will be effective for weight loss if taken correctly as prescribed. (For example, the HCG pellets will not be effective if they are swallowed and not held under the tongue until dissolved). However, an injection guarantees that ALL of the HCG enters the body. Even though the drops and the pellets are real HCG, there is no way to be 100 % sure that all of the HCG absorbed into the body each time it was taken. Sometimes, part of the daily dose is lost in the digestive tract due to swallowing. Many times, this cannot be helped. Both the HCG injections and the HCG drops must be refrigerated and measured out each day, but only with the injectable form is absorption always fully guaranteed. Again, both are still effective with the HCG diet as long as they are prescription. So, if giving a yourself a shot each day makes you squeamish, know that the oral drops or pellets will still be an effective way to get the HCG into your system each day.
