A liquid drop form of a controversial diet tool.
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.
- 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
- 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
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.
