HCG drops are popular due to their acceleration to fast weight loss. While reports and research conducted that there is no more to the drops than salt and water, the drops are clearly gaining ground among weigh loss candidates. It was once asserted that the HCG drops had negative side effects but the myths were dispelled as the drops were considered safe.
The drops made out of natural substances, is approved by the FDA for use to supplement in fertility cases.FDA was however shocked to learn that the drops are being sold without prescription to the general public and term the sale as illegal since the drug has not been tested and proven to show that it indeed can help people to lose weight.
Experts in the medical field have termed the acceleration of the weight loss witnessed by people undergoing the treatment no more than a placebo and are as good as using salted water. Behind every rumor, there is some truth and the truth behind using HCG drops is a study conducted on pregnant women.HCG hormone occurs as a natural hormone produced by the body to mitigate situations where the mother has had a low calorie diet. In such situation, the hormone asks or sends a message to the brain to help in the conversion of fats into a more usable form that can help provide nutrients to the unborn child.
Drawing from this, it is expected that when people have a low calorie diet, and use the HCG drops, the hormone will trigger the brain to convert the stored fat in the weight loss candidate to a more utilizable form by the body. So far the treatment has had tremendous effect on those who have used it placebo or not.
Reports that the drops can help one to suppress their hunger patterns, increase metabolic activity and distribute normal fat evenly throughout the body and shed off abnormal weight has not been substantiated and believed to be no more than hear say.
HCG is combined with a low calorie diet for it to work effectively and has been documented to aid in losing 30 pounds in 30 days. Concerns have been raised about those taking the low calorie diet of 500 count per day or less as this is a starvation technique and may cause the body to shut down in addition to other adverse body effects.
