While an effective weight loss pill that shreds the pounds without any significant side effects remains elusive, a few medications and supplements used with exercise and diet may boost weight loss results. Tru Glō Medspa relies on several such substances as part of its medically supervised weight loss program, which has expanded its program to include the use of hCG, a natural hormone produced in the body. Tru Glō Medspa’s Medical Grade hCG Program has proven successful, with some clients losing up to a pound per day, and the program resulting in an average monthly weight loss of 20 pounds among those who have enrolled. No Tru Glō Medspa patients have experienced any adverse side effects, and most patients have reported that they feel no loss of energy despite the program’s reduced caloric intake.
What is hCG and How Does it Work?
Spelled out as “human chorionic gonadotropin,” hCG is a hormone produced by the body that presents itself in high levels during pregnancy to help women mobilize fat reserves for use as energy for both the mother and fetus. First recognized as a potential weight loss tool by a British doctor named Albert Simeons in the mid-1950s, hCG helps reduce appetite, maintains normal energy levels, and wards off the unpleasant impacts of a low calorie diet such as headaches and mood swings. Simeons, who devoted much of his career to the issues of obesity and weight loss, determined that hCG used in conjunction with a low calorie diet of 500 calories or less could dramatically help patients lose weight. While researchers have since determined that the low calorie diet itself is primarily responsible for the lost weight, the hCG is believed to work on a metabolic basis to ensure that fat rather than muscle is being reduced.
It’s All About the Metabolism
Anyone can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but due to the body’s natural metabolic processing designed to maintain fat reserves for times of deprivation, most people lose muscle and bone density before fat. This also causes cellular metabolism to slow down, which further encourages weight gains while at the same time promoting further losses in muscle mass and bone density. By combining hCG with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy, and, as the fat is eliminated, the low calorie diet prevents the emptied fat cells from being refilled. Meanwhile, the muscles and bones are protected by hCG’s metabolic impact, making for a healthier calorie-restricted diet.
With hCG working naturally to encourage metabolic mobilization of fat as the body’s energy source, it effectively reduces one’s appetite. Despite the reduction in calories, the body is able to access needed energy from the fat cells. In fact, most patients notice a significant decrease in their appetite within three days, and most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program. While hCG is a pregnancy hormone, the small amounts given to patients do not stimulate any pregnancy related response beyond the metabolic activity with fat reserves. In fact, hCG can be safely used by both men and women.
