Homeopathic and Over the Counter HCG Must Be Removed from the Market!
In 2011, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and Federal Trade Commission acted in concert to order that over-the-counter and homeopathic HGC could no longer be sold in the United States.
The FDA advised consumers to not buy human chorionic gonadotropin weight management products, then sold as sprays, drops, and pellets and found online and in retail stores.
Among the agencies comments at that time: ““… a very low calorie diet should only be used under proper medical supervision” and “HCG is FDA-approved as an injectable prescription drug for the treatment of some cases of female infertility and other medical conditions.” Note that weight loss is not one of FDA-approved prescription uses of HCG.
The joint action was the first step in keeping the unproven and potentially unsafe products from being marketed online and in retail outlets as oral drops, pellets, and sprays.
HCG is a prescription medication that must come from a licensed doctor and pharmacy.
