Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that plays a significant in sexual development. In men, it’s prescribed to increase the production of testosterone, as well as to help with weight loss.
HCG acts like luteinizing hormone (LH), reminding the body to continue producing testosterone. This is beneficial especially for men who are suffering from androgen disorder or undergoing hormone replacement therapy.
HCG is sold in powder form that can then be mixed with liquid, but it’s also available in syringes ready for injection. It is typically injected into a muscle or under the skin – and this can be done at home.
We’ll have to remind you though, that you’ll need to acquire a prescription to actually purchase hCG in pharmacies. Of course, it’s best to avoid black market alternatives for safety measures.
The hormone should be taken exactly as the doctor prescribed. It should not be used in large amounts and for longer than what is recommended by your physician.
HCG is naturally produced in the body and is present in both men and women. In fact, the hormone’s already present while we’re still developing inside the womb because it helps in fetal development.
