Before starting any diet it is always a smart move to learn everything you can about it.  So in this article we will be discussing some of the HCG Dangers.

HCG Danger #1 – Where to purchase

When purchasing HCG, make sure that you do your due diligence. This means thoroughly researching the background of the dealer to ensure it is a reputable and legitimate business. Probably the most important thing of all is to make sure the company has extensive knowledge about HCG. By doing your homework, you should be able to minimize your risk of being scammed. As you might expect, there are quite a few unscupulous groups posing as HCG suppliers whose only intent is to make a quick buck.

There are a couple of things you can do to make sure the product you have or about to order is the real deal:

– Purchase HCG from a licensed manufacturer in the US.
– Avoid purchases from overseas. Foreign companies may not be legitimate. Overseas deliveries could run into delays, or even worse, get seized by Customs agents.
– Get a doctor’s prescription for HCG and have the physician obtain the product for you.

If you follow these simple guidelines as part of your due diligence process, the odds are strongly in your favor that you will successfully obtain authentic HCG.

HCG Danger #2 – Constipation

Bring on the bowel movement! That is exactly what’s needed when you are on the HCG diet. One of the most common side affects is constipation. You should know that food consumption is dramatically reduced while on the HCG diet. As a result, it is normal to experience a reduction in bowel movements. Once every couple or few days is typical. If things go beyond 72 hours, there are several things you can try to motivate your system into a bowel movement.

The main thing you can do to have a bowel movement is to literally soften things. You can do this in several different ways. First, try mixing a soluble fiber, such as psyllium powder, with a glass of water. Consume that mixture on a daily basis. Increasing your daily water consumption will also help. Drinking MCT oil could possibly help as well or try herbal teas.

Gradually introduce herbal tea into your system and closely monitor how it affects you. Sometimes if the tea is too strong, it can resule to stomach cramps. Licorice tea has also been known to work for some. There are also other herbal teas or supplements available that can act as a natural laxative for your system. each of the teas for a short time the first time you try it. If the tea is too strong it can cause abdominal cramping. Licorice tea may work for some people. You may also try Cascara Sagrada. This is also an herbal supplement that acts as a natural laxative.

The key to this is not to get discouraged going through this process. Just remember that everyone’s body functions work differently and that it’s just a matter of discovering the right things that will allow your system to have a bowel movement while on the HCG diet.

HCG Danger #3 – Introducing the Hormone into your system

This may seem obvious but realize you are introducing a hormone into your body.  Everyone reacts differently to supplements, vitamins and undoubtedly to hormone.  It is always a good idea to consult your physician before starting any weight loss plan.  If you decide not to consult or be monitored by a doctor you do so at your own risk.  It is always a good idea to learn about the diet your are on and how it will interact with your body.

Some of these HCG dangers may not seem like a big deal.  The important part is to be aware of all the possible things that could go wrong.  The goal of the diets is to lose weight and live a healthy vibrant life.  If you are not aware of the “hcg dangers” you might be missing the end goal of losing weight.
