Southern Californians interested in losing weight quickly under doctor supervision through HCG injections should schedule a consultation with Dr. Masrour today. Though not designed to be a weight loss plan for all men and women, HCG Injections are safe for millions of Los Angeles area men and women who are motivated to lose weight quickly.
What are HCG Injections?
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is a hormone that is naturally produced by women during pregnancy. However, both men and women naturally produce HCG in low levels on their own. HCG injections as a diet program, involves doctor supervised weight loss through injecting high levels of HCG, all the while adhering to a low-calorie diet.
HCG injections available in West Hills work in a few ways. First, the hormone tends to reduce hunger, allowing you to eat less, but not feel hungry. HCG is also known as a pro-hormone, which means that it helps your body to actually make more hormones naturally. Hormone imbalances, and deficiencies are often partly to blame for weight gain, or an inability to lose weight, so the injection of this pro-hormone helps your body to work with you to lose weight quickly.
Finally, HCG injections, coupled with the diet, and supervised by Dr. Masrour, help to ensure that muscle isn't lost while you're losing weight. Instead, you maintain your lean muscle mass, because the HCG helps your metabolism to go into an anabolic state. This prompts your body to lose fat only, which is the ultimate goal of any weight loss program. Indeed, HCG injections result in inches lost, fat lost, but muscle is maintained.
What is the Difference Between HCG Injections and HCG Supplements?
In the simplest terms, HCG injections are the only form of HCG that can be relied upon to contain the proper level of HCG. Supplements, or online orders of HCG have no guarantee that you are getting the necessary level of HCG to be effective in helping you to lose weight. This is because injections are the only method of ingestion proven to help raise your HCG levels in your blood.
Are HCG Injections Safe?
HCG Injections are safe for people in generally good health, but there are some Los Angeles area patients who will not be suited for these injections. Pregnant women, those who have unmanaged diabetes, and other medical conditions are not suitable candidates for HCG injections offered at Healthy Transformations located in the San Fernando Valley.
However, otherwise healthy patients, and even patients with conditions including pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, type II diabetes, or even chronic inflammatory illnesses may be able to use HCG injections for rapid weight loss in greater Los Angeles. You will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Masrour, Board Certified physician to discuss and evaluate your overall wellness and suitability for this diet program.
