HCG – Human Chorionic Gonadotropin
|HCG has been used for many years as a weight loss solution. There is lots of information out there that says that it doesn’t work, however our supported programs have proven results. HCG is not a MIRACLE DRUG as there needs to be the appropriate diet and support to make it effective. To use the spray without the appropriate diet (and support) then you can actually gain weight. This is why we always recommend completing a program and not just get a script written by your regular doctor. Our studies have shown that people that complete the program with our Clinics lose far more weight than those trying alone without the support and appropriate advice.To see how to use our Nasal Spray – Click Here|
What is HCG and how does it work?
HCG is a hormone naturally produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is the pregnancy hormone, but during pregnancy the levels double every two days. This hormone has a property that allows the body to mobilize fat and use it for energy for both mother and fetus, if there is ever a dire need. It is a fail-safe mechanism for weight loss, we use only a small amount and we are able to capitalize on this same mechanism.
HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. A starvation state must exist for HCG to work. For weight loss, we use a very low calorie diet to trigger HCG to help rid the body of fat. This diet is included in your HCG treatment when you get started with the program. Contact us if you are only using the spray without a diet as this is not effective for weight loss.
I know a doctor that is interested in prescribing HCG but doesn’t know much about this program, How do I get them involved?
As the HCG Nasal Spray is only effective with the appropraite diet, support and follow ups it is important that you don’t get your doctor to just write a prescription for the spray without any other advice. Get your doctor to Contact us on 0755398751 (We are looking for doctors and clinics all around Australia) We will organise for someone to visit your doctor to explain the diet and how to utilize our programs support.
Is it safe to use hCG?
HCG is very safe. Women experience extremely high levels during the nine months of pregnancy and have multiple pregnancies without ill effects. The small pharmaceutical grade amount used for weight loss has NO side effects. The HCH Nasal Spray that we compound is made with the highest quality ingredients and a clean and safe environment and delivers an accurate dose in each pump. We have been perfecting our formula for over 2 years and have had over 400 patients using our Nasal Spray and never had any side effects reported.
I see lots of Naturopaths and internet sites selling HCG online, what is the difference between your spray and the rest?
Our HCG is the actual hormone and requires a prescription to be supplied. Anything that doesn’t require a prescription (In Australia) does not contain ANY HCG HORMONE at all. There are Homeopathic HCG drops that people say they have lost weight, but there has been no clinical trials or evidence to prove that these homeopathic drops will actually mobilise fat for energy and reset the metabolism and therefore people lose weight (not as much from experience) and find it harder to keep the weight off.
We have only ever sold the REAL HORMONE HCG and not the Homeopathic and as a pharmacy we do not have any affiliations with the Homeopathic versions of the diet.
Compared to other HCG Nasal sprays made by other Compounding Pharmacies, our sprays have been used in over 400 patients successfully and we provide expert customer service, advice and an extremely high quality product. We have spent years researching dosage forms and formulas and we have come up with a great proprietary formula designed by our in house Pharmaceutical Scientist. There are many clinics that prefer to use our services.
If hCG works so well for weight loss, why don’t pregnant women lose weight?
HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. A starvation state must exist for hCG to work. For weight loss, we use a very low calorie diet to trigger hCG to help rid the body of fat. It is very common for pregnant women to say “I”m eating for two” which usually put weight on.
Will my metabolism slow down if I’m on a very low calorie diet?
Normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies store fat and our metabolisms slow down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When a very low calorie diet is employed with hCG, the body is signaled to use the fat that is stored for energy or for elimination. Therefore, the HCG helps to reset your metabolism at your new weight so you do not regain the weight.
Wouldn’t I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet without hCG?
You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, your body will assume that you are goiong into a starvation mode and you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes cellular metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, it would make gaining weight easier. This is why the HCG is very important to be used when reducing your colories as it works to mobilize fat to use as calories and your body will not be going into starvation mode.
The hCG diet is very low calorie, will I get hungry?
Because hCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So, even though, you are taking in fewer calories, your body is able to access the energy you have stored. Most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program.
Will hCG interfere with any medications I am currently taking?
No, hCG does not interact with any medications and there are no side effects. We still recommend checking with our pharmacist for interactions

Will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking HCG?
Some women may experience heavier than normal periods and should not take the HCG while they are menstruating.
Why are some people calling HCG the HCG Cure?
HCG is also being called the HCG Cure because after taking it for weight loss, it works to re-program your body to use stored fat for energy when calories are reduced for some period of time. Or put another way, it helps you maintain, and not re-gain the weight you have lost. There may also be evidence that it raises your metabolic rate (which is resonsible for up to 75% of fat burn)
Does the weight loss slow down after the first month?
Often times what we see is a large weight loss in the first month, then we will see a plateau. This does not mean weight loss has stopped. Usually we still see inches being lost continuously and then we will see another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is achieved in stair-step fashion.
