HCG shots are used as a part of the HCG diet, and they are administered as a subcutaneous injection or into the muscle. HCG shots can be administered by a medical professional such as a nurse or a doctor, or they can be self-administered at home. Many HCG diet programs use HCG injections but also offer HCG drops or pellets as an alternative to the shots.
In order to ensure that the injections are safely administered, they should be only prescribed by a medical professional. Detailed instructions are required to use the shots effectively, and instructions on how to use the shots should be given by medical professionals who are familiar with injection protocols and the diet.
HCG shots are used for fast HCG hormone activity
One of the major benefits of HCG diet shots is that they offer the fastest way for the hormone to enter the bloodstream and become activated. The shots are much faster than HCG drops or pills, and they are the preferred method for most HCG diet programs. HCG shots have been widely used in clinical studies on the diet, and because of this they are the preferred method of administration by medical professionals.
They are shown to increase blood levels of HCG faster than other methods. This is useful on the diet, as the faster the hormone enters the bloodstream the faster it can begin taking effect and metabolizing fat. The hormone can also target abnormal fat quicker when it is injected.
Always purchase HCG shots from an established provider
Be careful to only purchase HCG from an established provider, because the quality of the injection can have significant health repercussions. Homeopathic HCG is not effective and they may have ingredients that are dangerous or can cause side effects. The injections must be prescribed by a licensed medical professional, and they should be prepared at a licensed pharmacy.
They can be safely shipped as the injections can be sent out pre-mixed, and once they arrive they can be mixed with bacteriostatic water. An established provider will only sell HCG shots with a prescription from a medical professional, and they should only be sold after a medical consultation and with detailed information on how to self-inject the hormone at home.
The shots are safe to use at home as long as they are prescribed
The HCG diet and the HCG shots are perfectly safe to use at home as long as they are prescribed by a licensed medical professional and purchased from an unknown or questionable source. Always be sure that you are purchasing pure HCG, and some providers may add B12 or other natural vitamins in with the shots, which is perfectly safe as well.
The injections are normally administered with a small ¼ inch needle, which causes minimal pain and discomfort, and the injection sites are also rotated to reduce needle pain. Medical professionals should be available to answer any questions about the safety of the injections and how to use them.
The shots are used for 26 or 46 days
There are two HCG diet protocols, one which lasts 26 days and another which lasts 46 days. Each of the protocols has a two to three day loading phase at the beginning of the diet, where the shots are still used, but the very low calorie diet is not followed, and high fat foods are consumed.
This waiting period helps the body prepare for the effects of the hormone, and it also allows the body the time it needs to respond to the hormone. There are other benefits of this “loading phase”, but the HCG shots are always administered right at the start of the diet. Again, as long as the injections are purchased from a reputable provider, they are a perfectly safe option to be used for the HCG diet.
