This includes therapy for men in the up-regulation and long-term use of the hormone.
According to Brian Yusem, There is a common miss-conception, of utilizing HCG hormone stimulation in male hypo-gonadal or testicular up-regulation of testosterone.
What is HCG:
HCG is a hormone that is made in both men and women. HCG can be extracted from pregnant women's urine or through genetic modification. The product is available by prescription under the brand names Pregnyl, Follutein, Profasi, and Novarel. Novire is another brand but it is a product of recombinant DNA.
HCG is a glycoprotein hormone that mimics LH (luteinizing hormone), produced in pregnancy by the developing embryo soon after conception, and later by part of the placenta.
Role in Humans:
Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and to maintain the progesterone production critical for pregnancy in women. It supports the normal development of an egg in a woman's ovary, and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation. HCG is used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in women. It is also made in young males to bring the testicles down for sperm production for fertility.
Additionally, HCG is used to increase testicular size after long-term testosterone or anabolic steroid use.
HCG for weight loss, was first founded by a research group in Africa. Somalian’s in times of starvation were giving birth to perfectly normal babies. What the researchers found out what a hormone called HCG was released by the starving mother. This hormone called HCG was released by severely restricted calories from starvation to utilize 3 types of fat as a fuel source. This fat actually kept the baby alive until birth.
The HCG diet replicates a starvation response of below 500 calories per day and by given the additional hormone HCG, it triggers a utilization response of fat for a calorie source. This, in turn causes fat loss.
Brian Yusem utilize this course for people that have a problem with triggering this “fat switch”. It is not for everyone though and needs to be monitored carefully, especially coming off therapy and returning to eating normally. If you don’t do this carefully, you will gain all the weight back and more.
Why Would You Need HCG?
Acc. to Brian Yusem clinical experience and research, HCG is not a good option. If you have to utilize HCG you are overdosing the patient with testosterone therapy and shutting down there natural production.
Conversely, why would you overdose a patient with testosterone and cause a potential shut down of a patient’s normal production of testosterone and expose a person to unnecessary risk of HCG therapy?
In addition, human chorionic gronadotripin (HCG) is approved by the FDA to treat prepubertal cryptorchidism, hypogonadism secondary to pituitary deficiency in men, and to increase fertility in women with certain fertility problems.
If anything, you should consider the entire hormonal axis, including your pituitary function, as listed above. HGH deficiency, almost always go together with low testosterone for males and females. This will be discussed in another article on HGH.
