Medical weight loss programs are becoming increasinglypopular. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or HCG, is a natural human hormone produced by the placenta in pregnant women. It mobilizes mother's body fat (stored in adipose tissue) to ensure that the growing baby has a constant and steady supply of energy and nutrients.
The idea of using HCG for weight loss was developed by Dr. Simeons in the 1950's and 60's. He discovered that regularly timed small doses of HCG in the average person, men and women who are not pregnant, would still produce the same effect of mobilizing stored fat.

This knowledge is now available for weight loss aspirants in the form of medical weight loss programs at leading wellness clinics, such as Live Skin Health and Rejuvenation Center in Tempe.
Here are the biggest benefits of a medical weight loss program based on HCG.
CONTINUOUS ENERGY SUPPLY
With HCG, your body has access to a constant and steady supply of energy. It prevents you from feeling hungry, weak or tired.
HCG also boosts your metabolism. On an ordinary weight loss diet, your body thinks you are starving. As a result, your metabolism slows down, making you feel hungry and storing any extra calories it gets. Any weight loss program maykeep your body in that vicious cycle of increased hunger, slow metabolism, and storing calories, making you gain weight in the end, instead of losing it.
On the other hand, medical weight loss programs using HCG works differently. HCG, the natural hormone helps your body mobilize and use its own fat reserves, supplying energy and nutrients. This helps you diet safely and still lose weight till you reach your target.

EASY TO FOLLOW
The HCG is administered under the skin (subcutaneous or SC) or into the muscle (intramuscular or IM). You can come to the office for the injections or self-inject HCG at home. A nurse will teach you how to administer the shots, as well as how to dispose of used syringes and needles.
