Sublingual HCG Drops Double Blind Study

Sublingual HCG Drops Double Blind Study

Sublingual HCG Double Blind Study
Some critics of the sublingual HCG diet complain that anybody should lose weight on a very low calorie diet.

But a Dr. Belluscio completed a double blind study in which all volunteers submitted to the exact same VLCD schedule for five weeks, with one half given HCG drops (not shots) and the other half given a placebo.

Major take-aways:

-hCG oral administration proved to be a safe and effective procedure on obese treated volunteers.
-No side effects were observed during the study.
-Compared to placebo treated subjects, volunteers who were managed with an oral administration of hCG coped more efficiently with daily irritating situations, were in a better mood, and handled home conflicts without stepping up family discussions.
-Subjects on hCG+diet decreased more significantly in the waist and abdominal circumferences than diet alone

The test concludes:

1. Female obese volunteers participating in a double blind study, and submitted to the administration of an oral presentation of hCG plus a VLCD, decreased specific body circumferences and skinfold thickness from conspicuous body areas more efficiently than Placebo+VLCD -treated subjects.

2. hCG oral administration proved to be a safe and effective procedure on obese treated volunteers. No side effects were observed during the study. There are no reports in the literature regarding this administration route to compare our findings.

3. Compared to placebo treated subjects, volunteers managed with an oral administration of hCG coped more efficiently with daily irritating situations, were in a better mood, and handled home conflicts without stepping up family discussions.
This study appears to contradict former conclusions on the issue of hCG and obesity. We attribute those differences to a different approach, including variables not assessed in former publications.
