What is hCG?

Natural, yet effective. hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. A substance produced in large quantities by the placenta, during pregnacy. It was discovered in 1927 by Ascheim and Zondek in the urine of pregnant women.

The hCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropinis a glycoprotein (succession of amino acids joined by a sugar bridge), secreted by the trophoblastic cells of the placenta. This means that it is produced in enormous quantities during pregnancy (up to 1,000,000 Units per day, to ensure the protection and nutrition of the embryo). It was discovered in 1927 by Ascheim and Zondek in the urine of pregnant women and found to help mature the infant sex glands of experimental animals.

Hence its name: Chorionic GonadotropizIn 1954, Dr. ATW Simeons, a German doctor working in India, noticed that the so-called “fat boys” with adiposogenital dystrophy improved the condition of their testicles, which had not yet descended, when treated with hCG.
He also observed that during the course of treatment, the distribution of body fat changed.

Therefore, he hypothesized that if these children were subjected to a very hypocaloric diet, they could reduce their body weight by consuming these adipose deposits that were being mobilized. He later extended his research to patients with varying degrees of obesity, and concluded that hCG could be useful for the treatment of obesity because:

Dr. Belluscio devoted most of his medical career to the study of hCG for weight loss. For several years he was a researcher at Bellevue Klinik, Switzerland, an institution with the most impressive records of patients treated with hCG (15,000) for obesity and overweight. Traveled to EE. UU, Sweden, Italy, Germany and Israel giving lectures on the method. In 1987 he founded the Dr. Belluscio Center, an institution dedicated to the research of hCG for obesity. Records show that the center has used the oral hCG method in more than 6,540 patients to date. From 1991 he developed a presentation hCG to be administered orally, which demonstrated its effectiveness in a series of studies to Double Blind. Together with Dr. Vogt he published, Director of the Bellevue Klinik, she published several reports on the method for Health Care Professionals and articles on the subject for the general public.
