Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG)
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a polypeptide hormone created in both men and women. It is produced in large amounts during women’s pregnancy and men secrete it in large amounts during puberty. HCG stimulates the natural testosterone production system of men that present low levels of Luteinizing Hormone (LH) and Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH). Whereby, HCG is considered a viable alternative to the standard Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT).
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin naturally produced by the placenta after implantation. In the world of performance-enhancing drugs, HCG is combined with various AAS cycles. People in bodybuilding fancy this hormone integrated on their diet to lose a lot of weight. There has been a claim that it can “reset your metabolism” that you lose as much as a pound in a day without feeling hungry.
HCG diet limits a person to take 500 calories a day while taking hCG.
