hCG

hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is a hormone secreted by the placenta during pregnancy. It was originally developed by Dr. A.T.W Simeons to aid clinically obese patients in quickly returning to a safer weight zone to avoid deadly health conditions. Over 40 years of research has led to the concept of the hCG diet. Unlike mainstream diets, the hCG diet refocuses one’s attention to smaller portions, less processed foods, and more structured routines that promote more long-term weight loss. It is not a diet solely for the purpose of losing weight to look good. The hCG protocol will promote healthier living for years to come.
hCG is used in extremely low doses for weight loss. The standard daily dose of the hCG injection is 0.25 mL.

Some of the benefits of hCG include the following:
- Positive effect on mood
- Increased energy levels
- Relief of back pain
- Relief of migraine pain
- More rapid loss of inches

Human Growth Hormone Replacement

Human growth hormone is a hormone that was discovered in 1956. It was originally felt to have as its principle action the regulation of growth in children to cause them to grow. About thirty years ago, it was discovered that adults with deficient hGH compared to their peers have an increased incidence of premature heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, strokes, and osteoporosis.
Human growth hormone (hGH) has been FDA approved for use in adults with hGH deficiency since 1996. hGH is critical for tissue repair, healing, brain functions, physical and mental health, ,muscle growth, bone strength, energy and metabolism.

Some signs and symptoms of human growth hormone deficiency are:
- Decreased bone strength (frequent fractures)
- Increased fat
- Decreased energy

Pregnenolone

Pregnenolone is a steroidal hormone manufactured primarily in the adrenal glands. It has a number of beneficial effects, including enhancing your memory and reducing stress-related fatigue. Pregnenolone is the precursor from which nearly all other steroid hormones are made, including DHEA, progesterone, testosterone, estrogens, and cortisol.

If your adrenal glands are stressed, the pregnenolone levels in your body will lower. There are many causes of this adrenal stress. Some may include:

- Psychological Stress
- Inadequate exercise
- Lack of sleep
- Illness
- Injury
- Inadequate nutrition

Symptoms of adrenal stress include:
- Low body temperature
- Weakness
- Irritability
- Depression
- Poor concentration
- Excess hunger
- Insomnia

Maintaining strong adrenal function is important for optimizing your cortisol level, controlling blood sugar, insulin levels, and overall physical fitness.
