How do hCG pellets compare with hCG injections? The form of entry is less important than the dose that gets results. Here is what to look for.
What Are hCG Pellets?
HCG pellets are, first and foremost, an oral/sublingual form of hCG. Specifically, pellets are designed to dissolve under the tongue and are therefore to be taken sublingually. They are not to be swallowed. Since hCG is a protein hormone, it would be destroyed in the highly acidic digestive juices of the stomach.
They are called pellets because the hCG is embedded in a gel material and because they are shaped like little pellets. There is nothing wrong with referring to them as hCG pills, though.
How Do They Compare With hCG Injections?
The key, as always, is to obtain a dose of hCG that matches that of the original injectable hCG that was originally used with great success by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in the 1950s. Dr. Simeons prescribed a single injection of 125 IU (International Units) per day.
Protein hormones are more absorbable by injection than through any other route. Since sublingual absorption is less efficient than that by injection, any sublingual form of hCG must provide more of the hormone to match the injectable amount. Typically this means that hCG pellets must provide 400-500 IU per day.
Moreover, since absorbing that much hCG in one dose is highly inefficient, hCG pellets are best taken twice per day. Compounding pharmacies that provide hCG pellets manufacture them to contain half the daily dose per pellet, meaning that they are to be taken in two doses per day. Ideally, these doses are spread out as much as possible – e.g., 12 hours apart.
What to Watch Out For
As always, make sure that whatever hCG pellets you use, they state clearly how much hCG they contain, as measured by International Units (IU). Products that do not do so are mostly likely fake. Furthermore, products that require several doses per day or that require you to take more than 2 pellets per day are undoubtedly inferior or even fake.
