B3 Benefits

Top Three Science Backed Benefits of B3 (Niacin)

 

Niacin along with all other B vitamin it helps change food into energy by assisting enzymes do their job. B3 is an integral component of NAD and NADP, which are two coenzymes that are involved in cellular metabolism. Niacin also plays a very important role as an antioxidant, heart health, making and repairing DNA and cell signaling. If you do not get the right amount of Niacin then you can suffer from fatigue, depression, diarrhea, headache, skin issues, memory loss and confusion

 

Lowers Triglycerides

Niacin’s first benefit for blood fats is that it can lower triglycerides by 20–50% (7).

It does this by stopping the action of an enzyme that’s involved in triglyceride synthesis (1).

Consequently, this lowers the production of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL). Therapeutic doses are needed to achieve these effects on cholesterol and triglyceride levels (1).

Reduces LDL Cholesterol

Niacin has been used since the 1950s to treat high cholesterol. In fact, it can lower levels of “bad” LDL cholesterol by 5–20%. However, niacin is not the primary treatment for high cholesterol due to its possible side effects. Rather, it’s primarily used as a cholesterol-lowering treatment for people who can’t tolerate statins.

 

Raises HDL Cholesterol

Along with reducing LDL cholesterol, niacin also raises “good” HDL cholesterol. It does this by helping to stop the breakdown of apolipoprotein A1, a protein that helps make HDL. Studies have shown that niacin raises HDL cholesterol levels by 15–35%.

hCG is Safe and Effective

The hCG Institute is dedicated to helping people combat obesity using human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). This hormone was first attributed to weight loss by the physician A.T.W. Simeons in his now famous HCG Protocol; Pounds and Inches, A New Approach to Obesity. It was in this documentation that he outlined his discovery and methodology for treating the obesity disorder with hCG. He found that a low dosage of a hormone that occurs in women during pregnancy, that which was used to treat gonadal disorders in young boys drastically reduces the abnormal fat tissue in obese patients.

Of the three types of fat that are distinguishable in the human body, Simeons claimed that Chorionic Gonadotropin attacks the “abnormal fat” accumulation that afflicts a typical overweight patient. When an obese patient attempts to starve themselves in an attempt to lose weight the abnormal fat is not used by the body for fuel. During a nutritional emergency the body begins to burn the normal fat reserve and only after the structural fat is exhausted will the body turn to the abnormal fat tissues to account for the nutritional deficit. It is at this point that a starved patient will typically experience weakness and severe hunger while the abnormal fat has not even begun to burn.

However, there is one such nutritional emergency where all of the bodies fat tissue become available as fuel; pregnancy. During gestation the abnormal fat cells are available to the fetus and Dr. Simeons suggests that the large quantities of hCG during pregnancy incite these changes in the hypothalamus.

 

How do we know  that HCG is effective?

The HCG Institute and our parent practice have successfully treated thousands of  patients with hCG over the past 9 years and have come to the same conclusions. Safe, effective and easy. Patients who strictly follow a 500-900 calorie diet while administering their daily dosage of injections or prescription sublingual drops experience significant weight loss. Furthermore, a large segment of those patients experience weight loss in the abnormal fat deposits that occur around the hips, thighs, belly and underarms.

American physician Harry A. Gusman M.D. outlined his experiences with the hCG hormone for weight loss (2). In 2500 patients between the ages of 15 to 75, responses to daily questioning and weight loss results among patients were consistent with the views of Dr. Simeons. In his article for the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition he states; “My own early skepticism of the method quickly dissipated after I had an opportunity to observe Dr. Simeons’ work at his clinic in Rome. Since that time, experience has shown his method to be not only the most scientific approach to the problem but also the safest and most productive.”

 

How can we be certain that HCG is safe?

Consider that hCG is present and in large amounts during pregnancy, which is the most important stage of human development. It exists in the mother and in the fetus and without any negative effect to any organ system of either the mother or the fetus where upwards of 1,000,000 units can be excreted per day. As such, the dosage of 125 to 250 units per day of the treatment is completely safe.

Obesity is the disease caused when the intake of calories as food is greater than the expenditure of  calories as energy. The only way to combat obesity is to counter this cycle. An intake of 500 calories per day will guarantee that your body will burn off the extra calories throughout the day and the hCG will help maintain your low appetite levels and stimulate your body to burn off the abnormal fat.

Welcome To Our Blog and Redesigned Site!

Welcome! As many of you may know, I do a monthly newsletter for The HCG Institute.  

It’s been a great tool to connect with our patients and it’s always fun to hear their feedback when I see them. So, we’ve decided to do one better. Why not have a forum where we can continue to educate and inform, but offering you the chance to share feedback and questions with us (and better yet, each other!) anytime you want. 

We will regularly chime in, so feel free to direct your comments/questions to any of us. With that, welcome. I look forward to your comments…

The Holidays

It’s great to see so many people getting healthy in time for the holidays.

Every new patient is another success story with The HCG Institute and we just wanted to remind everyone to approach these holidays a little different than in years past.

If you are hosting this year cook healthy for your friends and family members. Let everyone see the changes you’ve made in your life so that they can make the same changes in theirs.

If you are attending at a friend’s or family members, don’t forget to estimate your calories. Calories in, calories out and trust me you can still eat grandmother’s cake if you plan for it.

It will all be worth it in the end when on New Years Eve your fitting into that knockout dress that’s been sitting in your closet.

It’s still not too late to lose 20 pounds in 20 days in time for the holidays with the HCG Institute. The new year is fast approaching and I know your tired of the same old resolution every year so lets make those changes now.
