What is 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 presents 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).
How does it work?
HCG reestablishes the natural function of sex hormones LH and FSH, which allows the fertility capability in adults. There is a huge amount of remarkable characteristics in the use of HGC, which enhance physiologic rhythm of testosterone production, maintains normal testosterone levels, minimizes excess on estradiol production, maintains the normal size of testicles, stimulates sperm production, restores the normal function of the testicles and restores the pituitary/hypothalamus axis.
Results and benefits
Research and reports show the presence of antibodies against HCG. The immune system identifies this hormone as a pathogen and tries to eliminate it, which can cause unwanted symptoms in people. Nevertheless, no other adverse reaction has been reported in the use of HCG.
Growth Hormone seems is boosted by HCG. This benefit is a direct effect of HCG and increases level of testosterone rapidly. Other benefits include; increase of muscle mass, improvement of blood circulation, low levels of cholesterol, improvement in bones strength and a raised protection against the aging factors.
HCG has been used as a tumor marker to help in the diagnosis of cancer. It brings information about gestational trophoblastic disease or germ cell tumors through a blood sample.
LH levels can be low on people who use anabolic steroids. In this case, HCG can reestablish adequate levels of testosterone stimulating its natural body production. HCG is meant to be a temporary solution for sex hormone disorders due to its action to reestablish the natural function of both LH and FSH.
The International Olympic Committee bans the use of HCG. Athletes using this hormone should not participate in any official sports competition; otherwise, they would be committing a violation of the anti-doping rules.
For medical use, HCG is obtained from two main sources: urine of a pregnant female and African plant Fadogia Agresis, which is considered one of the most potent tools to boost natural testosterone levels. Benefits of the extraction of this plant lie in its ease to be ingested and its property to improve recovery.
The initial treatment with HGC has a duration of three weeks during which drug’s response is evaluated. Injections of 500 units are administered three times a week. Dose and supplying frequency is adjusted depending on the response to the treatment based on clinical judgment and the actual hormone levels. Therapy can last from 6 weeks to one year.
