FDA Issues Warning to HCG Products

Just a few weeks ago, the Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission sent warnings to several companies that market over the counter weight loss products containing HCG.

This powerful weight loss hormone is FDA-approved only as a prescription injection drug, not as oral drops, sprays, or pellets. The versions found on the shelves contain only trace amounts of actual HCG in them, if any at all.

And even if they did contain HCG, when broken down during the digestion process it inactivates the hormone — rendering it useless. The warning states that the companies are violating federal law by selling drugs that have not been approved and making unsupported claims.

These products also recommend following a very low calorie diet; but since there’s no active HCG in the product, to naturally suppress the appetite and protect muscle tissue, it can potentially be very dangerous. Very low calorie diets should only be used under proper medical supervision.

So don’t fall victim to the heavy marketing of these scam products. At Tampa Rejuvenation we use only pharmaceutical grade HCG injections that, when combined with our unique HCG Diet you can experience dramatic weight loss with medical supervision along the way to ensure your success.
