Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) is a hormone naturally present in both men and women, but its levels are normally increased by the placenta in pregnant women. During pregnancy, this hormone controls a woman’s increased metabolic needs through the hypothalamus in the brain. In non-pregnant women as well as men who are trying to lose weight, evidence suggests that hCG similarly increases the metabolism, similar to that which happens in a pregnant female. In the 1950’s, British Endocrinology Physician, Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons created the hCG protocol after discovering that treating non-pregnant obese patients with low dose injectable hCG hormone, while following a specific reduced calorie diet, allowed the body to burn fat at a more efficient rate. In the last ten years, the medically supervised HCG Diet has become a sought after weight loss plan due to its level of safety and effectiveness.
