Yes. It is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for male and female infertility. It is widely accepted by the medical community and has been used for decades without insult for infertility. It is not FDA approved for weight lost. The FDA states that such products aren’t necessarily dangerous; their sale is deceptive since there’s no good evidence that it’s effective for weight loss. I completely disagree. There are a number of supplements on the market that are somewhat effective and safe for weight loss such as Garcinia Cambogia. There is research that suggests that it suppresses appetite and somewhat effective for weight loss. However, they aren’t approved by FDA. The fact is hCG has been used for well over 50 years for weight loss with incredible results. I would not recommend for people to take sublingual drops or supplements containing hCG as it is far less effective. With sublingual drops you still lose weight but much less approximately half as much. Most hCG supplements don’t contain much hCG. Therefore, not really effective for weight loss.
