HCG also plays a hand in dealing with cortisol. Cortisol sends signals to muscle that is the reverse of testosterone and if it is not dealt with it can attenuate all of your hard earned muscle. The saying, “If a little is good than more is better” does not go for HCG which is why we believe the only truly effective way to administer it is through frequent low dose homeopathic administration. You will also find that it supports the reduction of symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia—enlarged prostate, with the use of frequent small doses. If you are a professional athlete you should not use this formulation as it can be potentially detected in urine.
