During last couple of years I have spent over a thousand dollars on lots of weight loss products, only to find out that most of them don’t work. You see a fancy ad promising fast results with almost no effort (well the latter can be true, but you need to understand what exatly you’re doing and why). You receive a great-looking package and after couple of weeks you start to understand it’s absolutely useless.
HCG injections DO work, but again, not all brands are worth your attention. In the review below I’ll try to describe my own experience and what is working for me.
In case with HCG shots finding the reputable supplier will not only guarantee that you receive the right product, but also get full support and instructions in case you need them, plus, the package will include all of the accessories to start using it right away.
As of beginning of 2018, I recommend Nu Image Medical as #1 HCG Injections manufacturer.
How do HCG injections compare to other forms of HCG?
Many professionals consider shots the best option when it comes to HCG diet. Indeed, many studies prove that taking your daily dose of HCG via shot means better and faster absorption, which gives many additional benefits. On the downside, not all of people are comfortable with injections, and therefore, choose drops or pellets. Anyway, when it comes to best results, injections are no-match. Although the margin they win by is not very significant, it’s still there.
Another advantage to buying HCG injections is that you’re getting real, non-homeopathic HCG. If you’re not familiar to the concept of homeopathy, basically the idea is that you can mix one drop of medicine in whatever amount of water, and that water will ‘magically’ become as effective as original medicine. There are no studies that prove it’s effectiveness, and all homeopathic treatments must now be labeled as non-working.
Where to buy HCG injections?
Luckily, you can order them online. You will still need a prescription, though. You may skip visiting your family doctor as leading suppliers have a network of affiliated doctors who can review your medical information, intake form, contact you to ask a question if something is not clear from application, and finally, prescribe for you. The process is fast, efficient and extremely straightforward.
Important: if any website promises you to send injections kit without prescription, most likely it’s a scam, and it offers homeopathic substitute that doesn’t work. Real HCG that is used in injections can only be purchased according to the above process.
Can I buy HCG shots overseas?
You certainly can. What is even more, some people get really good results. But, I have decided that it’s not for me because of one drawback: shipping time. When I was researching HCG diet, and saw before-after pics, I wanted to start right away. An overseas supplier I found promised at least 30-day shipping.
Another con of going an overseas route is absolute necessity to do extra research, and lots of it. US-based companies are much easier to work with and communicate in case you have questions. Not only that, but it’s much easier to find out if the company is legit, and what they offer is a working product.
On the positive side, the cost of HCG injections for weight loss ordered from overseas can offer substantial savings, but it’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth the hassle.
How much do I need?
Most active Phase 2 of the diet is usually about 3 to 4 weeks. You can repeat the cycle after some time for even better results. But for a single cycle you will need 5,000 IU of HCG. That’s the dose most trusted suppliers include in their products. So, please take a note of this number and check if product of your choice has appropriate dosage.
How to use and store?
Once you receive you HCG injections kit, please read instructions very carefully. Although there can be a very minor difference, depending on manufacturer the key points here are as follows: you will receive powder and bacteriostatic water (of course, syringes, needles and other supplies are also included). Once mixed, it should be stored in the fridge, or the solution will degrade otherwise and its effect will weaken. As for the dosage, it’s important to refer to the instructions of a specific brand tou decide to purchase.
As for the shot itself, no surprise here, just do it.
No, seriously, here’s a great video explaining all you need to know:
To wrap it up
Injection is the most effective form of HCG available today. The disadvantage of shots compared to drops or pellets is a bit more complicated process of ordering them online (you still need some forms, like an intake form to fill) and probably the fact you need to do a shot itself, which is not great news for some dieters. I was hesitant about that, too. But, as it turned, it was only a psychological barrier that went away after first shot. Next most effective are drops, and pellets are the last.
