What To Know About HCG Drops

A recent study conducted by the US centre for disease control shows that 28.9% of American adults are obese. As a result, people are clinging to desperation as controversial, possibly unsafe, disputed and unconventional methods of weight loss are being put to the test.

The disputed HCG diet possibly the most disputed diet in the history of the world, the HCG Canada (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet involves the administration of what is either a hormone found in the urine of expectant mothers or a drug that is used to treat impotency or barrenness in both men and women. What is clear however is that along with the administration of HCG, either in drop form or as injections, the dieters must strictly adhere to a 500 calorie a day regime?

The diet is said to work a charm as the drug is said to directly suppress a person’s appetite.
Truth be told, it is hard not to believe that the diet wouldn’t work as 500 calories a day is way under the recommended daily calorie intake, which stands at 2,500kj for men and 2,000ki for women.

What’s the big deal?
The problem with HCG is that although it has been approved for the treatment of sterility, it has not been approved by the FDA (the Food and Drug Administration) for over the counter use, and that is exactly what is happening. Numerous pharmacies and nutrition stores are said to be selling HCG Canada. Directly or products that contain HCG. The situation becomes even more complicated as many renowned doctors are also uncertain why HCG is as effective as they are vet to understand how and why it works.

HCG diet in Canada

HCG is surprisingly easy to come by in Canada with numerous outlets readily supplying the substance. As a result, the diet has become hugely popular in the region and this is worrying as there is still not enough evidence to back the use of the substance. In fact the FDA banning it altogether is a direct claim that the drug is unsafe for use. Many are concerned of the sudden rise in popularity of the HGC diet in Canada.

The easy way is not always the best way although the HCG diet promises a rapid amount of weight loss in an (unbelievably!) Short amount of time; the possible side effects of the substance are still largely unclear. Eating right and doing some good old exercise on a regular basis is not the easier option, but at a time like this, when there is so much uncertainty in the air, it is definitely the safer option. In the past, we have seen people put their lives in great danger because of fads. Most recently is the remarkable case of the French brand Poly Imolant Prostheses IPIP1.

Therefore, the best thing to do, at least until the doctors do their research and the smoke clears, would be to devise and stick to a “healthy living” regime that consists of eating the right food and doing some exercise, not looking for the easy way out as it is not always the best.
