Individuals who wish to take part in the highly controversial, yet highly effective HCG diet plan will need to make the decision as to how they wish to consume the HCG. HCG comes in several available options including oral tablets, oral drops, and injects.
Each option has its own pros and cons, but most individuals find that the HCG drops are the fastest and easiest delivery method. Here’s a closer look at the HCG drops including what is required to take the HCG drops and if there are any potential side effects.
HCG Drops are Fast and Convenient Options
Individuals often choose to use the HCG drops because they are a fast and convenient option for those who are on the HCG diet.
The HCG drops just need to be administered under the tongue and the body will absorb them. There is no need to stop and inject the body with a syringe.
Health experts also believe that the body absorbs the HCG drops better than oral supplements or injections. Due to the fact that the HCG drops are already in liquid format, there is no need for the body to break down a pill or supplement.
Not having to wait for the HCG drops to be broken down and absorbed allows individuals to see the results of this diet plan faster than if they had to wait for the pills or supplements to be broken down.
No Potential Side Effects
Another reason individuals choose to use the HCG drops over the other forms is there are relatively few side effects reported. Past users of the HCG drops have reported only a handful of side effects such as headaches, nausea and lightheadedness that happened as a result of the low calorie intake and not as a result of the drops.
Individuals who have used other forms such as injections or oral pills have reported a wide range of side effects including rashes, redness at the injection site, hyperactive ovary syndrome, crankiness, and mood swings.
Choosing to take HCG Drops over the other forms does not impact how the HCD diet is administered. An individual will still need to follow the three stages of the diet, and for the bulk of the diet only consume 500 calories. The HCD drops can be consumed every two days. This will help people see a weight loss average of one to two pounds a day.
