Human Chorionic Gonadotropin
HCG is a natural hormone that is produced during pregnancy. Seven days after ovulation, the woman’s body begins to raise the HCG level. Due to the increased production of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which can be detected in the urine, a pregnancy can be detected.
Sounds strange in the context of bodybuilding, right? But it is not at all, if one looks at the connections between HCG and the reduced testosterone production of an athlete.
During a testosterone treatment, the body stops its own production of the hormone. If the athlete finishes the treatment, he must make sure to boost the testosterone level as soon as possible. If he did not do that, the result would be loss of mass. And that is precisely what should be prevented with the active ingredient HCG. Human Chorionic Gonadotropinmimics the effects of LH (luteinizing hormone), which stimulates testosterone production in the testes. The testicles can now reach their original size, in which the body’s own testosterone production starts again. The typical mode of action ofHuman Chorionic Gonadotropin is therefore a post-cycle therapy.
