Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy is pleased to offer many compounded innovations to help our patients meet their weight loss goals for the New Year!
We have all watched many popular diet plans come and go, but a successful diet plan needs to be easy to follow, shows rapid, measurable weight loss, and helps to lose fat –not muscle. Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is increasingly popular as a weight-loss supplement, and a number of recent studies are showing why.
Dr. Belluscio, MD, published a study suggesting that formulations of HCG could be effective in promoting beneficial fat redistribution during a low calorie diet. This was followed by a double-blind study verifying his results. Another study in Gynecologic and Obstetric Investigation showed that HCG increased the levels of adiponectin– a hormone involved in glucose and lipid metabolism that “acts in the brain to decrease body weight.” Persons using HCG plus a low calorie diet protocol tend to lose (plus or minus) one to one-and-a-half pounds per day of subcutaneous fat, are less irritable, and feel better than on a low calorie diet alone.
Are you terrified of needles or don’t want to deal with the hassle of injectable HCG? Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy offers HCG in many different dosage forms. HCG can be administered via sublingual drop and troche, rapid dissolve tablet, nasal spray, and transdermal cream. Because HCG is a large molecule, we use PCCA’s High Molecular Weight Lipoderm base. This cream base is designed to deliver large molecules like HCG across the skin for optimal transdermal absorption. The sublingual drops & troches, rapid dissolve tablets, transdermal creams, and nasal spray formulas are normally used twice daily, at 12-hour intervals, and vary from 62.5 units to 500 units per dose.
Pavilion Compounding Pharmacy offers many other weight loss formulas and high quality pharmaceutical grade supplements. Commonly requested weight loss formulas include: Phentermine, Topiramate, Chromium, Hydroxytryptophan (L-5), Alpha Lipoic acid, Glutathione, N-acetyl Cysteine, Caffeine, and Vitamin C.
We are able to customize formulations to meet the unique needs of our patients. Our formulas can be made without dyes, sugars, preservatives, and fillers. Immediate and sustained release vegetable capsules are also available.
