My wife bought Natural Health Labs HCG from a local pharmacy.


She works with a chemist and I asked her to ask him how I could test the fluid in the bottle to be sure it wasn't just water. What he said was this:


"Get a pregnancy test kit and simply dip the strip in the fluid and read the results."


Pregnancy kits work by detecting HCG! No HCG, not pregnant. HCG present, pregnant!!!


I tested the bottle of HCG and "not pregnant." No HCG detected. Not even a the microscopic amounts that these test strips can identify.


Now, just to be sure I wasn't missing something, I re-read the bottle of HCG. The "active ingredients" are: "hCG - Human Chorionic Gonadotropin"


I re-read the pregnancy test kit to see what it was looking for and it reads: "The Pregnancy Test detects in urine the hormone your body makes during pregnancy: hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin).


I'll update this report once I talk to the pharmancy where my wife bought the bottle labeled "hCG."

HCG DROPS FROM NATURAL HEALTH LABS

AUTHOR: TERESA - (United States of America)

my sister introduced me to the hcg diet. i got the drops from natural health labs and followed the diet like it was recomended.

i lost 32lbs after 2weeks of using it.i know those drops work if u follow the diet and dont cheat.it can be hard not to cheat but you have to do it tell your wife to try the drops and the diet instructions first before calling the company fakes i need to lose a few pounds and am doing the diet over again. i only trust this brand because i have had actual results. have not tried anyother but these drops do work good luck.

Your wife and her chemist colleague were both...

AUTHOR: Cindi - (U.S.A.)

partially misinformed. 

She didn't buy HCG, she bought homeopathic HCG.  Homeopathic anything is diluted.  The HCG she got is 6x, 12x, 30x, 60x.  The x means that the dilution factor is 1:10  So 6x is diluted 10 -6, 12x is diluted 10 -12, 30x is diluted 10 -30, and 60X is diluted 10 -60 (those should be shown in scientic notation but I can't figure out how to do that here).

If you took the urine from a woman who was 8 months pregnant with multiple babies and diluted it that much her pregnancy test would be negative too.

The chemist should have known that a homeopathic formulation wouldn't have caused a positive pregnancy test; perhaps your wife didn't realize that there is a difference between HCG & homeopathic HCG.  In fact, if the pregancy test had been positive your wife's product would have been illegal.  Actual HCG (non-homeopathic) will cause a positive pregancy test, but it also requires a prescription to obtain. 

It is true that the homeopathic drops don't work just as well as regular; you might be a bit more hungry with them or only lose 25 or 30 pounds over the course of a 42 day cycle instead of as much as pound a day with the prescription.  But a 42 day supply of drops is less than $25 and a 42 day supply of prescription is $1000 (you have to figure in the price of the doctor and all the testing they require just to get the prescription as well).  You also have to take a break of at least 6 weeks between cycles with the prescription, but not with the drops. 

So if your wife needed to lose 100 pounds it might take her 15 weeks and $75 with the drops or 30 weeks and $3000 with the real stuff.

Did she even try the drops and see if they worked for her?

Do Your Research!!!!

AUTHOR: Do Your Research!! - (United States of America)

I am constantly amazed at the way people who have a tiny bit of information will run with that and draw conclusions based on insufficient information, and then blurt out their conclusions based on this insufficient information as "fact."  Often, these people have no problem smearing the reputation of people, companies, and ideas just because they do not understand what is going on and are too egotistical to admit that they do not know everything and too lazy to do some research! If you attempted to do any research, then it would not take you long to discover that the amount of HCG taken for the HCG diet is no where near the amount of HCG a pregnant woman produces!  Men and women both naturally produce the HCG hormone, and when a woman becomes pregnant, she produces a HUGE amount of HCG, which is why a pregnancy test turns positive.  If someone is taking HCG for the HCG  diet, and if that person takes a pregnancy test, it will be negative, unless she is indeed pregnant!!  Please take some responsibility and do some honest research before so flippantly trying to destroy the reputation of someone's company, someone's livelihood.  How would you feel if someone did that to you?
