HCG Injections Over Pellets
If you are considering the HCG diet for weight loss, you may be wondering, why use injections over pellets? Does it really matter which type of HCG you use?
The first thing to consider when contemplating any HCG product is to make sure that the HCG is real. HCG, also known as human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that helps utilize fat stores which results in weight loss when combined with a very low calorie diet. If real HCG is not used with the diet, weight loss results are limited and this type of low calorie dieting can be extremely dangerous and harmful to the metabolism. FDA rulings now state that real HCG cannot be sold over the counter. Real HCG is now only available by prescription from a licensed physician. This ruling ensures that if HCG is taken for weight loss, that the dieter is under the direct care of a physician. Homeopathic or hormone-free HCG sold over the counter or in health stores will be noneffective for lasting weight loss.
Once you find a company, like Nu Image Medical, that specializes in the HCG diet and provides only prescription HCG, you then have to consider what method of HCG is best for you. HCG is available in injections, drops, and pellet form. (Homeopathic or fake HCG is typically only found in the oral drop form, but the drops can be prescription strength as well). NOTE: All forms of HCG are effective for weight loss; provided they are taken correctly as prescribed, and they are prescription product. The HCG injections tend to triumph over the HCG pellets simply because complete absorption is guaranteed once the shot is given. The pellets are dissolved under the tongue, and the HCG still quickly absorbs into the bloodstream. However, it is impossible to guarantee that 100 % of the medication is absorbed daily. Again, this does not mean that the HCG pellets are not effective for weight loss. Many HCG dieters see great results with the HCG pellets.
