Generic HCG Human chorionic gonadotropin is an oligosaccharide glycoprotein composed of 244 amino acids. It has an alpha subunit that is 92 amino acids long and identical to that of luteininzing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). It has a beta subunit that is unique to hCG.
Bodybuilders and athletes use hCG either on cycle, in an effort to maintain testicular integrity during steroid administration, or after a cycle to help restore hormonal homeostasis more quickly. Both types of uses are effective when properly applied.
Human Chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that supports the normal development of an egg in a woman’s ovary, and stimulates the release of the egg during ovulation.
The Benefits of HCG
• Maintains Testicular Function
• Increases Testosterone Production • Maintenance of sperm production and normal testicle size
As a part of PCT, HCG should only be used once levels of injected steroid fall below what would be commensurate with 100 mg/week use, very low dose HCG such as 100-125 IU every other day is acceptable as a part of PCT. You may have to wait for a week or so after your last injection before administration begins.
A dosage of 500 IU EOD (or 3x/week, which is nearly equivalent), or 250 IU daily is around a reasonable absolute maximum.
For normal use it is recommended to take either 100 IU daily, 200 IU Every Other Day, or 250 IU three times per week. These can have very effective results.
