Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), a water-soluble hormone produced by the fetus during gestation and present in the urine of pregnant women, patients actually began utilizing fat instead of lean muscle tissue when fed a calorie-restricted diet.
What has been discovered since that time is that HCG is responsible for the regulation of the hypothalamus gland, which controls metabolism and the use of bodily resources such as fat. While all persons are born with an abundant supply of HCG, this is depleted by adulthood. Replacement of HCG corrects the imbalance and reprograms the hypothalamus to use fat stores when caloric intake is reduced. Schedule an appoint today to find out more.
