Releana

A liquid drop form of a controversial diet tool.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The hCG diet is one of the most controversial and contested diet tools on the market today.

hCG is a natural hormone which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. hCG production surges during pregnancy. It has become a coveted but controversial darling of the diet industry because it is believed to break down your body's 'abnormal' fat, causing you to lose inches. At the same time, it protects your body's good or 'normal' fat and muscle from depleting. Those who follow an hCG diet plan must also follow low calorie food plan. Not only does the low calorie diet allow them to lose weight, but because of hCG's effects on the body's fat, advocates say that you can lose weight without the typical problems such as muscle loss and sagging skin.

Typically, hCG is given via hormone injections in a medical clinic. As the weight loss tool has gained more popularity, hCG distributors have created alternative ways for the hormones to be delivered. One such way is a liquid homeopathic drop that the individual consumes a few times a day.

The company Releana® is one such company that has created this form of hCG.

Releana® considers itself an advanced weight loss program available only with a doctor's prescription. Medically licensed practitioners and medically supervised practitioners are recommended to implement the company's patented Program so that the patient can achieve optimum patient results.

The Releana® drops are placed under the tongue a few times a day. A low calorie diet plan and modest exercise plan are also recommended. Releana® contains only hCG and must also be supplemented with potassium to offset the medication's side effects.

Releana claims to help you lose one pound a day, thereby reaching your weight loss goal in record time.

PRO
  • May help to jumpstart a weight loss plan
  • May be a safer method of delivery of hCG in comparison to injections
  • Prescription-only creates more protection and clinical supervision for the individual
CON
  • Not a magic pill for weight loss
  • Long-term risks are not fully understood
  • hCG taken orally or intravenously carries numerous side effects
  • Medical professionals who administer this supplement are not fully supported by the medical community
  • No guarantee that medical supervision is as stringent or closely-monitored as it needs to be
  • Once the medication is no longer taken, weight gain is a likely consequence
  • Supplementation of potassium to offset side effects raises red flags over the safety of this product
INGREDIENTS

Releana® drops contains "natural" hCG made from alpha and beta subunits.

ADMINISTRATION

Releana® drops are held under the tongue for one to three minutes and then swallowed. Potassium supplements should also be taken to prevent the lightheadeness, dehydration and dizziness that comes as a result of the rapid weight loss.

DIET and EXERCISE

Releana® dieters must consume a 500 to 800 calorie diet. If you hit a diet plateau, you are encouraged to eat six apples in one day to jumpstart weight loss again.

Exercise is also encouraged, but it is limited to brisk walking, mild aerobics, or yoga as strenuous exercise can lead to dizziness and hunger.

The exact diet and exercise plan will be thoroughly described with the individual's medical clinician who is administering the supplement to them.

CONCLUSION

Releana® is a liquid form of the hCG hormone, a controversial diet tool that is associated with facilitating rapid weight loss.

Whether the slimming effect of hCG has to do with the super low calorie diet you must follow or the hormone itself, is subject to debate. And while the health risks are not fully understood, most medical practitioners do not support the use of supplementing the human body with a synthetic form of a hormone to promote weight loss.

Still, this has not stopped numerous companies from creating hCG forms for those desperate to lose weight. Releana® is one such hCG distributor that offers a liquid form of the hormone, rather than the standard injection form.

The positives about Releana® is that it can only be medically prescribed and following the plan must be done under medical supervision. But its since immediate and long-term health concerns are either dangerous or not fully understood, using Releana® drops should be heavily examined and discussed with a qualified and ethically-sound medical doctor before deciding to start the program.

I have lost 35 lbs on it. I have not had a craving and I feel great. I am doing Zumba 3 days a week and yoga twice a wk and having the time of my life. Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. I believe that you just need to find what works for you and this works for me!

I disagree completely on the fact that "Once returning to a normal diet and discontinuing the supplemental hormone, you may regain the weight". I did it and 5 months later I am keeping my weight and not gaining and I am eating anything I want. In RELEANA's website, you can view the video gallery, which by the way I did those videos, and you will see each day,very explicit, of the process and food eaten. You can also go to YouTube and search for "GETTING REAL WITH RELEANA" and you will find every video.
This statement is WRONG "Reducing calories this dramatically will definitely drop pounds, but may make it difficult to keep the weight off. It is also likely that weight loss occurs from the drastic -- and unhealthy -- calorie reduction and has little to do with hCG. This is the real fact on hCG and how it works "The theory behind the diet is because you are in-taking only 500 calories, weight loss is a given. The addition of the hCG affects the hypothalamus, which in turn stimulates the release of fat given. The addition of the hCG affects the hypothalamus, which in turn stimulates the release of fat
stored in the body which in turn supplies the 1500 or so additional calories needed on a daily basis. Fat loss and weight loss occur, but excess food cravings and hunger are blunted due the hCG effect. Dr. Simeons found that a person?s abnormal fat stores would be mobilized from storage and a more normal fat distribution and metabolic function occur after about 20 days."

Not sure what the controversy is because I have done it and has been an amazing experience that I would do it again in a second. Lost 25lbs in 21 days. You cannot beat that and was healthy going through it since had regular check ups and blood work done through my PCP.
RELEANA is the only way to go!
