What are HCG Diet Drops?
HCG drops are, quite simply, a liquid form of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. This hormone has an important role in nourishment and development of the growing fetus in early pregnancy and as such, HCG is produced most abundantly by pregnant women. Although it may seem amazing to consider, HCG drops have been used extensively since the 1950’s to aid weight loss in overweight individuals.
HCG drops are generally a sub-lingual form of the hormone, meaning that they are designed to be taken orally with the majority of absorption into the bloodstream occurring via the sensitive tissues of the mouth. There are 2 forms of HCG available on the market, medical HCG available in drops, pillules and injections and homeopathic HCG. There is some debate over which is the best form of HCG to use for weight loss.
