Significance of reducing body fat

There are 2 types of fat in the body, for sale normal structural fat and abnormal stored fat. Structural fat is not burned for metabolism but does have a very important role in the body providing protection for the bodys major organs, like the liver, heart and kidneys. Normal structural fat is considered good and healthy for the body. Abnormal stored fat is kept in storage under the skin as a spare fuel supply for the body in case of starvation or hibernation. When the body becomes overweight or obese, this abnormal stored fat can become permanent and tends to collect in place like the hips, buttocks, knees, ankles, upper arms, neck and abdomen.


Does HCG have any other treatment benefits?

HCG also rejuvenates the structural fat and helps it from becoming depleted. This makes areas like the face, neck and hands look and feel rejuvenated and refreshed. Most loss methods end up stripping the structural fat, causing a sunken hollow appearance. HCG patients also report having more energy, decreased appetite and food cravings, and they feel better than they ever have when taking HCG. HCG acts as appetite control, making it easier to maintain a low calorie, low fat eating plan. This kind of diet will initially prevent new fat from filling the empty space all at once.

If on a very low calorie diet, won’t I lose weight no matter what? If so, why is HCG needed?

Yes, you would have some weight loss with just a low calorie diet. However, you would not have the energy to maintain your activities of daily living like work, family, etc. Also, a low calorie diet alone does not distinguish between structural tissue, muscle and fat. HCG excreted by the placenta during pregnancy supplies the necessary calories from the fat that is stored in the fat cells.

Where do the HCG injections come from?

HCG is human hormone, and like most hormones, is obtained from human sources. HCG is a urinary based substance that is obtained, sterilized and processed from pregnant women.
