Should I stay on the Drops during my period?
Per Pounds & Inches, women are to stop taking HCG when their monthly cycle begins. In the past, it was thought that this only applied to women using prescription HCG injections. We now believe that women using HCG drops may also benefit from stopping their doses during their cycle, but it is not required. However, if you would prefer to do so, we recommend that you stop for just the first 3 days of your period while continuing with VLCD. On the 4th day, resume taking your drops as normal ensuring that you complete a minimum of 21 days of HCG+VLCD.
do I need to keep the Drops refrigerated?
No. While actively taking the HCG drops, you may store them on the counter for up to 3 months, plenty of time to complete VLCD. If you have leftover drops at the end of your round, you may store them in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
what is the shelf life of your Drops?
Unopened, our drops have a shelf life of approximately 4 to 5 years. Once opened, the HCG drops can be stored unrefrigerated for up to 6 months, or refrigerated for up to 12 months. We recommend you keep the drops out of extreme heat (such as leaving them in a car or next to a hot stove) for an extended period of time or allowing them to freeze. Both will weaken the hCG.
what are the potential side effects of using your product?
Any weight loss program carries with it some element of risk. Since HCG is a naturally occurring hormone (in both men and women), there are no known side effects from the HCG drops. Please check with your doctor before beginning any weight loss program and do your own due diligence to make sure you understand the protocol as written by Dr. Simeons in Pounds and Inches.
what is the strength of your Drops?
The strength of our drops is the highest caliber available (6X, 12X, 30X, 60X). The various numbers indicate dilution strength, the more dilutions, the stronger the formula. We recommend you take our drops 6 times a day (every 3 hours) with .50 per dosing as the minimum recommended strength and .75 per dosing as the maximum recommended strength. As opposed to brands you take 3 times daily, we believe that dosing every 3 hours (6 times a day) results in higher fat loss. With taking every 3 hours you ensure you keep your body at constant peak fatburning. Dr Simeons recommended taking between the range of 150 to 200 IUs of prescription hCG daily, which is the equivalent to .50 to .75 on our dropper taken 6 times a day.
I read alcohol in hCG deactivates it. Is that true?
If you were to purchase prescription HCG and mix it directly with alcohol, you would, in fact, deactivate the HCG. During the process of succussion, HCG is mixed and diluted with purified water and up to 20% alcohol. The alcohol acts as a preservative and does not have any effect on the effectiveness of the product.
The only additives you definitely want to avoid in your HCG are appetite suppressants such as
