Years ago, when health and nutrition research was less advanced than it is today, most people used body weight as a key metric of health and well-being. Too fat was a sign of trouble, too thin indicated a different kind of trouble, and if the numbers on the scale said “just right”, then all was well.

We’re all born with a tiny pea-sized gland at the base of our brain—the pituitary gland—that produces and releases a host of important hormones throughout our lives. One of these, called Human Growth Hormone or HGH, helps our bodies grow and gain strength and proper development as we age.

HCG is an abbreviation for human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced by the pituitary gland that enters the bloodstream during pregnancy. Women with fertility issues and those who experience difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy to term are often prescribed injections of hCG, typically because their bodies don’t produce large enough quantities without intervention.
