What’s all this hCG talk?
What is hCG, really?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin or as we know it, hCG, is a hormone produced in large amounts in women during pregnancy. One of its functions is to ensure the growing fetus receives enough nutrients to grow and develop normally. It does this by making the abnormal fat stored in the mother’s body available for use, constantly supplying the growing baby with nutrients. The mother’s body is then able to use this fat for nutrients and energy despite her intake (3 meals a day). It is important that the growing child is not ‘flashed’ nutrients at morning, noon and night, but rather consistently having nutrients supplied throughout the day. Pregnancy is the only time HCG is found in the body.
