Avoiding Hormone Free

Question of the Week – What is hormone free hCG and does it work?

If you are new to the hCG world or still learning about the different types of hCG, we want you to be aware of the “Hormone Free” hCG. Since hCG is a hormone, you are essentially buying hCG free hCG drops. These bottles will say hCG but they will not have the hCG hormone listed as one of the ingredients. According to Pounds and Inches, “HCG is never found in the human body except during pregnancy and in those rare cases in which a residue of placental tissue continues to grow in the womb in what is known as a chorionic epithelioma.”

These bottles claim to stimulate the bodies own hCG making abilities.  Since we only produce this during pregnancy, this method is not going to work. You need the hCG to break down the abnormal fat and without it you are just taking vitamins and water.  You will lose on a 500 cal diet for awhile, but you will be starving and you will start to lose muscle mass and structural fat.

The first ingredient listed on your hCG ingredients list needs to be: Human Chorionic Gonadotropin or shortened to (HCG) if taking homeopathic it will be followed by numbers 12x, 30x, 60x and when taking Rx if you will give an IU dosing amount.

The hormone free versions will use words like hcg transmitters or activators but they will not have dosing amounts in the ingredients and they will normally not be listed as the first ingredient.

Here is an example of how an ingredient list will look that uses hormone free hCG: (proprietory HCG Active-8 Complex)L- Ornithine L-Carnitine,L-Arginine,L-Glutamine, Maca,Niacin,Pygeum,Africanum, Beta-Alinine,Rhodiola, Astragalus.

Here is another one: Ingredients: ACTH, Adrenalinum, Anacardium Orientale, Antimonium Crudum, calcarea Carbonica, Cortisone, Fucus Vesiculosus, Hypothalamus, Kali Bichromicum, Oleander, Pituitarum, Sabadilla, Staphysagria, Tanacetum Vulgare, Thyroidinum) Equal volumes of each ingredient in 10X, 30X, LM1 potency.
Other ingredients: (Agrimonia, Castanea, Oenothera, Hookeri, Calochottus Leichtlinii, Achillea, Millefolium, Neurotransmitters Hormones) 10X, 30X, LM1: Amino Acid Complex (L-Arginine, L-Ornithine, L-Carnitine) 3X, 6X, 12X, 30X, Human Chorionic Conadotropin 6X, 12X, 30X, 60X.
Inactive Ingredients: 16% Organic Alcohol, purified water.

Excerpts from Pounds & Inches:

Importance and Potency of HCG
“Owing to the fact that HCG has no direct action on any endocrine gland, its enormous importance in pregnancy has been overlooked and its potency underestimated bough a pregnant woman can produce as much as one million units per day, we find that the injection of only 125 units per day is ample to reduce weight at the rate of roughly one pound per day, even in a colossus weighing 400 pounds, when associated with a 500-Calorie diet.

It is no exaggeration to say that the flooding of the female body with HCG is by far the most spectacular hormonal event in pregnancy. It has an enormous protective importance for mother and child, and I even go so far as to say that no woman, and certainly not an obese one, could carry her pregnancy to term without it.
If I can be forgiven for comparing my fellow-endocrinologists with wicked Godmothers, HCG has certainly been their Cinderella, and I can only romantically hope that its extraordinary effect on abnormal fat will prove to be its Fairy Godmother.

HCG has been known for over half a century it is the substance which Aschheim and Zondek so brilliantly used to diagnose early pregnancy out of the urine. Apart from that, the only thing it did in the experimental -laboratory was to produce precocious rats, and that was not particularly stimulating to further research at a time when much more thrilling endocrinological discoveries were pouring in from all sides, sweeping, HCG into the stiller back waters.”

Three Kinds of Fat
“In the human body we can distinguish three kinds of fat. The first is the structural fat which fills the gaps between various organs, a sort of packing material. Structural fat also performs such important functions as bedding the kidneys in soft elastic tissue, protecting the coronary arteries and keeping the skin smooth and taut, it also provides the springy cushion of hard fat under the bones of the feet, without which we would be unable to walk.

The second type of fat is a normal reserve of fuel upon which the body can freely draw when the nutritional income from the intestinal tract is insufficient to meet the demand. Such normal reserves are localized all over the body. Fat is a substance which packs the highest caloric value into the smallest space so that normal reserves of fuel for muscular activity and the maintenance of body temperature can be most economically stored in this form. Both these types of fat, structural and reserve, are normal, and even if the body stocks them to capacity this can never be called obesity.
But there is a third type of fat which is entirely abnormal. It is the accumulation of such fat, and of such fat only, from which the overweight patient suffers. This abnormal fat is also a potential reserve of fuel, but unlike the normal reserves it is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency. It is, so to speak, locked away in a fixed deposit and is not kept in a current account, as are the normal reserves.

When an obese patient tries to reduce by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. When these are exhausted he begins to burn up structural fat, and only as a last resort will the body yield its abnormal reserves, though by that time the patient usually feels so weak and hungry that the diet is abandoned. It is just for this reason that obese patients complain that when they diet they lose the wrong fat. They feel famished and tired and their face becomes drawn and haggard, but their belly, hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. The fat they have come to detest stays on and the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Their skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. And that is one of the most frustrating and depressing experiences a human being can have.”

  1. I have wondered about my HCG drops.  Is there some way to test them?  I have heard putting drops on a pregnancy test stick should come back positive.  Is that true? 

    The first ingredient on my drops is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is followed by Vit B12 supplement, Mag-Phos cell salts, thyroid, liver, fat metabolizers in potencies of 3x, 6x, 12x, 30x, and 60x in a colloidal mineral water base and citric acid. Contains no alcohol. 

    Any thoughts?? Can I really test it on a pregnancy test?

    • If your HCG drops have actual HCG hormones in it you will test positive on a pregnancy test.  Also, you can get ketone strips and test your urine to see if there are traces of fat in your urine, which is the main reason for using the HCG drops (burn the excess fat in your body).

      • if you want to test hcg you will need to see your doctor and get
        a prescription and test it before mixed. Homeopathic and premixed hcg does not test. There are some who have and gotten pg positive but the mixture and the other ingredients will interfere.

  2. you can email me the link and I will look at them closer

  3. Thank you so much about this post. I’ve lost 50 some pounds so far one HCG using the hormone free drops, but now I’m concerned that it wasn’t as “healthy” as I thought. My drops are almost gone and now I’m going to order from MSD to make sure I’m getting the right stuff that I need. You guys are so helpful on this website and on the facebook support group. 

  4. I recently purchased HCG 5000 and after 14 days in the diet I find out it is a hormone free complex. Because of this website and the help of Shawna, I will no longer be taking this product. It’s really sad that companies are taking advantage of people at the risk of their health. Thanks for the help to make a step in the right direction!


  5. recently bought the drops my friend is taking, turns out they are hormone free..Will it still work for weight loss and fat burning.? my friend says it will make tyroid more active and help not to store the fat.? is she wrong.?

    • I would not use hormone free with this protocol. You will need a much higher calorie diet and it’s not hcg.. But they are good vitamin drops combined with a healthy dietary program .. It’s just not the same as hcg diet

  9. Lfortin81 says:

  10. Caitlincannon1 says:

    Okay, so I’ve been taking hormone free hcg for 10 days :) and while i’ve lost 10 pounds, i do NOT want to be on a starvation diet. I plan to go into the maintenance phase until I can get a hold of some authentic HCG drops. Does anyone know where they can be purchesed?

  11. where can i get the real homeopathic stuff the cheapest?

  12. Colleen Lacharity says:

    hi, I recently purchased a bottle of HF-30 NUTRI-FUSION
    is this a homone freevariety?? I purchased it at Vitaman World in Orlando Fl.
    the ingredients are listed as follows:
    Proprietary complex -44mg
    Chased Tree berry
    Dong Quai root
    Wild Yam root
    Green Tree root extract
    Yerba mate extract
    Black Cohash root

  13. I want to bye your drop, you do shipping to Puerto Rico?

  14. yes they look okay

  15. I want to do the drops but I understand that hcg in any form is prescription only. How do I obtain a prescription so I can do the drops?

    • JJ you can get hcg in different forms than just prescription. If you are wanting to do sublingual rx you can ask your doctor and get the right kind to mix for drops.

  16. I just finished my 21day of phase 2 but I just found out that the drops that I have are hormone free.
    Should I be scared? Pls help!!

    • Lori-

      No now that you are off them it won’t make any difference or give a reason to be scared. It is just not the same as protocol. It is compared to a fast low calorie diet with vitamins. The fat break down and how it works is different on a standard diet than when you use the hormone. If you need some help feel free to email miracleskinnydrops@gmail.com or join the support group

    You said “if taking homoepathic it will be followed by numbers 12x, 30x, 60x…” but you replied to Vwchapin ahd their drops from hcgEZdrops look ok. Is it because their drops were followed with an ext “6x”. I would have assumed these are hormone free according you your first notes. Its’ really hard to tell when looking online because you don’t normally see the ingredient list.

    • hcg will be the first listed ingredient with its dilutions plainly presented. Not all companies continue to offer hcg, even if they once did, so you need to check your labels and if you need help snap a picture of it and email it and we will help you. If it says complex it is usually hormone free amino acids. When in doubt ask for a copy of the label from the company.

  18. I recently just ordered HCG this is my second time doing it, last time was over 2 years ago and I lost 36lbs on HCG then 20lb on my own.. I ordered from the same site I used the first time but when I got the bottles I noticed the labeling has changed, and so did the ingredients.. So now I’m unsure if it’s the real stuff.

    Ingredients on the bottle..

    Active ingredients
    L-Arginine, Aceytl-L-Carnitine, L-Ornithine, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG).

    Inactive ingredients
    Purified active water, 20% ethyl alcohol.

    From the website ThinNow.com

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  19. I just ordered my drops today from miracle skinny drops, I’m excited! And very excited to have found this page. Hope everyone is doing well on their journeys.

  20. Since everyone is asking, I ‘d like to see what you say about my drops. They are from Nutra Pure. It states ” homeopathic solution HCG with adrenal, thyroid, and fat metabolizers in a 3x, 6x, 12x, 30x, and 60x dilution, colloidal mineral mater base. what is your opinion?

  21. I just bought creative bioscience 1234 and it doesn’t show hcg just a bunch of vitamins. Is miracle skinny drops hcg? I couldn’t find the ingredients list.

  22. Karen Scouten says:

    I am a bit confused. Do we want it with HCG or without? Can this be given by medical doctor?



    • you want hcg in your version whether its drops, injections, pellets,cream etc.. there are many that are just vitamin formulas
