Oral hCG vs. hCG Injections, Which is better?
What are hCG Injections?
hCG injections are shots that you give yourself in your muscle tissue several times a day. This method of hCG delivery was adapted by Dr. Simeons as part of his original diet protocol. At the time, this was the most effective means of restoring hCG levels in the body.
What is Oral hCG
Oral hCG, also known as sublingual hCG drops, is a homeopathic remedy. In this method, hCG is taken through a deliberate dilution process until the most potent form remains. These drops are then placed under the tongue using an oral syringe several times a day.
Which method is safer?
Both methods of obtaining hCG are safe as long as they are purchased through a reputable source. However, hCG injections are more difficult to obtain: they must be procured from a doctor’s prescription or obtained from an overseas pharmacy. hCG oral drops are available without a prescription from manufacturers based in America.
Which method is cheaper?
Oral hCG is definitely the winner here. Because hCG shots must be obtained either through a prescription or else shipped from overseas, they are costly and time-consuming to obtain. On the other hand, hCG drops are available locally and without a prescription. A single ounce of the homeopathic remedy will last for 2 weeks.
Which method is most effective?
Good news for the needle-shy: the homeopathic remedy has been proven just as effective as hCG injections. In fact, a study of dieters who switched from hCG shots to oral hCG found just as much weight loss, higher energy levels, and less hunger between meals than when the dieters were taking injections. Part of this may also be because dieters are more compliant with the homeopathic drops than the injections: they are cheaper, easier to get, and virtually pain-free to take. Plus – recent clinical studies suggest Oral hCG may even be ” More Effective” then previous studies done with hCG injections.
Since 1975, the FDA has required labeling and advertising of hCG to state:
hCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.
