    BUYING HCG - Where & How to Buy Hcg Online

    Updated for 2016 by HDI Team (Original post 2011)

    Buy HCG from Recommended HCG Suppliers, & Discounts for HDI Forum Members: http://hcgdietinfo.com/where-to-buy-hcg-online/


    If you are considering purchasing from a supplier that is not on the above list, you can check their status on the following site which shows unsafe online pharmacies. National Association of Boards of Pharmacy: List of unsafe online pharmacies:

    Tips to help when buying hcg for your diet:

    Decide if you want to do homeopathic hcg (hhcg) or prescription strength hcg (Rx grade hcg)- I strongly prefer the latter, so the majority of my directions will be based on that. http://hcgdietinfo.com/diet-hcg/hcg-...cols-overview/

    Homeopathic HHCG: At this point I feel even MORE strongly that you should only use homeopathic hcg drops that are reputable (such as the stronger, HCG Triumph 40 - both are popular homeopathic hcg drops.) and have HCG listed in the ingredients. They should read something like, "3X, 6X, 12X, 30X".

    A Note on "hormone free" (aka fake Drops): Any drops you buy at a drugstore such as Walgreen's, GNC, CVS, etc., are "hormone free" and are NOT going to have any Hcg in them- they consist of water, amino acids, appetite suppressors, and maybe a little alcohol or other preservative. You will not be able to do the HCG Diet on them- you will be hungry, and feel weak. In fact, it is unsafe on the VLCD. Both of those are signs that you are only doing a low-cal diet, and your body is going to be forced to burn muscle for fuel- something you do NOT want, even if you're losing weight- you will just gain it back after the diet is done. If you have hunger or low energy, stop them immediately. Read "How to Switch from Homeopathic HCG to Real HCG" here: http://hcgdietinfo.com/diet-hcg/usin...h-to-real-hcg/

    1. where to buy hcg:
    Your best bet is purchasing HCG from a reputable company specializing in the hcg diet. There is a list of reputable HCG suppliers at the top of the forums, under the "Buy HCG" tab. I suggest choosing one that offers professional medical support. They will provide you with instructions but as a heads up for what to expect: For shots, they will provide you with either vials of 5000 iu's or 2000 iu's. The vial of 5000 will get you about 25 days, and a vial of 2000 will get you anywhere from 10-13 days.

    Never purchase HCG on your own and get 10,000 iu bottles or otherwise! The potency will expire long before you use that amount. This is why REPUTABLE hcg suppliers will always provide the smaller, separate bottles (not 10,000iu's that are used for fertility.)

    When buying hcg drops, pellets, and tablets the amount of hcg is usually significantly higher to make up for what is lost through the digestion process. This is particularly true for pellets and tablets, which are usually double the dosage. These must be the kind that dissolve in your mouth and not pill forms that are swallowed.

    2. WHICH FORM OF HCG TO BUY:
    Decide if you want to do Rx drops, injections, pellets or tablets. All methods work equally well, and it’s easy to adjust your dose as needed. You can read more about these forms on the Buy HCG page.

    -Injections- The advantage of the shots is that you only need to do them once a day, which makes them the easiest. You use diabetic needles so there is essentially no pain involved. Nu Image offers the highest potency hcg injections on the market, while New Edge also offers high quality hcg for injections at a reasonable price. Both include ALL supplies and make their hcg in the USA.

    -Drops- You have to do these twice a day, 12 hours apart. You have to avoid food and water 15 minutes before, and 15 minutes after. Nu Image offers superb Rx drops. If you prefer homeopathic, then Triumph is an excellent choice. (Only the New Blue 26 and Triumph 40 are homeopathic hcg.)

    -Pellets- HCG Pellets are typically once a day and considered the easiest approach. Pellets typically have double the dosage to make up for HCG lost in the digestion process. Nu Image provides hcg pellets and are known to be a great source for high quality and the highest potency HCG on the market. Their HCG is made in the USA.

    -Tablets- HCG tablets are similar to pellets except that they are easier to break if you want to adjust your dosage, and they are said to deliver the hcg better. As far as I know, the only company that provides REAL Rx hCG tablets is New Edge Health. (Discount for HDI Members.)

    3. HOW MUCH HCG TO BUY: The shelf-life of UNMIXED hcg is generally a year or more, so buying multiple rounds of hcg will save you money and time, and there is no need to worry about the hcg going bad. Refrigerate your hcg but do not freeze it.

    4. PRICING: This is not a time to go "cheap." There's a saying that applies here: "Cheap is expensive." When you purchase hcg, you are purchasing hormone that you will be putting into your body. You are also committing to a protocol that has many challenges and you do not want to add the challenges that come with unsafe, low quality and low potency hcg. This can cause stalling and extreme hunger as well as serious health risks. These challenges can ultimately throw you off track causing you to have to start over... and over... and over again.

    Purchase quality hcg from the start. Best advice for this is purchasing hcg that was made in the U.S. where the FDA regulates the potency required for resale: HCG made and sold in the U.S. must have at least a 90% potency rate by law. Nu Image and New Edge make sure their hcg is at least 95%. Triumph is also a great quality homeopathic hcg. Overseas pharmacies are not held to any such regulations by the FDA.

    5. BUY ALL IN ONE KITS AND PROGRAMS: Consider purchasing an entire hcg diet program rather than buying 1 vial here, syringes over there, and bacteriostatic water from Missouri Medical. Often these programs (like Nu Image [higher dosage & potency] and new edge [most bang for your buck] - both U.S. companies) are cheaper than buying everything separately, in addition to safer than buying overseas. Again, discounts for HDI Members.

    6. BRANDS & VIALS: Some brands come with a rubber stopper, and some in a glass ampule. Both are perfectly easy to deal with. Brands include Nu Image, New Edge and US HCG brands: Hucog (powder), Hucog (pre-mixed liquid), Ovidac and Corion. All these brands are good ones but make sure you buy USA made versions. Nu Image, New Edge and Corion are the best brands. From there I’d say the next strongest is Ovidac, then Hucog liquid, then Hucog powdered. If you buy these brands from overseas, know that they are generic versions, and not the true brand name quality or potency. Many people experience hunger, stalling, hair loss, etc from the generic versions so proceed with caution. Store all unused vials in your fridge. Do not freeze.

    7. DOSAGE: It is generally recommended that people start with 150 iu’s for shots, and 166 iu’s twice a day for drops. This can be adjusted if you’re hungry or not losing as you thought you would. If you are hungry, address this! It’s very important to NOT continue through the diet excessively hungry or weak- if you are, you risk decreasing your metabolism and/or burning muscle for fuel. Always ask for help from your provider or on the forum if you’re hungry or weak. You may need to increase or decrease this dose, so people generally purchase hcg based on needing 175-200 per day. For drops, you might need to go as high as 250 per day, although most do well on 166.

    8. POTENCY: Average quality hcg begins to lose its potency after 2 weeks. The high quality HCG brands last much longer than generic overseas brands so keep that in mind. If you have good quality hcg, you can use this for up to 30 days. If you have lower quality hcg, you may need two bottles for 1 round (Mix again at 2 weeks.) It is never recommended that anyone use it past 30 days because of the bacteriostatic water used to mix the hcg, only lasts for 30 days. Again, do not buy vials of 10,000- you are wasting your money because you simply cannot use up a 10,000 iu bottle before it loses potency.

    Amounts for Injections or Drops:

    9. Hcg Injections- Vials of 5000- One of these is sufficient for a short round (23 days). For a long round, most will purchase two vials and re-mix after 14-20 days with a fresh supply of hcg. If you prefer to mix more often, buy vials of 2000 iu’s. At a dose of 150, one vial will last you 13 days, so you’ll need 2 for a short round- 3 if you think you’ll need a higher dose. [b]For a long round I’d purchase 2 vials of quality hcg, or 4 vials of generic at once.[\b]

    10. Hcg Drops- One vial of 5000 will last you about 15 days at the starting dose. So buy two vials if you're doing a round anywhere from 23-30 days, and 3 vials if you're doing a 40-day round. There are a couple of places online that sell pre-mixed prescription hcg drops: Nu Image Rx drops or Triumph hhcg are good brands.

    11. How long to do a round: Remember that you can do a round anywhere between 23-40 days. Some people believe you stabilize better with rounds at least 30 days. To figure out how much you need, estimate your dose and multiply it by how many days you want to do. If you think you’ll use 175 iu’s and you want to do a round of 30 days, you’ll need a total of 5250 iu’s. That would mean you’d need 3 vials of 2000. Or you could cut it by a couple of days and buy one vial of 5000.

    12. Other Supplies: Missouri Medical offers bacteriostatic water, syringes etc and they have incredibly inexpensive prices.

    Supplies For Injections- I strongly suggest buying from a company such as Nu Image or New Edge or US HCG so all the accurate supplies are included with your order. However, if you have purchased from a company such as US HCG Shots and only ordered individual HCG vials, you’ll need additional supplies for mixing and injection.

    You will need these hcg injection supplies: sterile vials, syringes, bacteriostatic water or bacteriostatic sodium chloride, and some mixing needles.

    A) Vials- I buy the 10 cc clear vials from recommended hcg supplies . The clear ones are less expensive, and you can cover them with foil (your hcg needs to be protected from light, and kept in the fridge).
    B) Syringes- I prefer the 29 gauge syringes. Buy ½” long, 1 cc syringes.
    C) Bacteriostatic Water- This lasts for 30 days once opened. However, if you use good sterile technique I generally say that it’s ok to use it for the length of your round, even if 40 days. Therefore you’ll need one bottle (30 cc’s) for each round you do.
    D) Mixing needles- You need something to get the Hcg out of it’s vial and into your sterile vial. In most states you can buy syringes individually (for about 30 cents) over the counter at your local pharmacy. A common size that works is 1.5” long (make sure it’s at least this long, to reach the bottom of the vial), 3 cc’s, and 22 or 23 gauge. You will need one of these for each vial of Hcg you buy- you need to use a new one each time.

    Supplies For Drops- It is highly recommended that you simply purchase QUALITY Rx hcg drops, rather than mix your own. For those who are curious what is required, these are the supplies for mixing hcg drops: You’ll need a glass bottle/vial (anything that you can reach the bottom of with your baby syringe), a baby syringe, and sodium chloride- marketed as “Wound Wash” and available at Walmart and most pharmacies. This is generally in a spray can, and you discharge some into a clean cup and then draw up what you need with your mixing needle. You can buy the baby syringe (make sure it holds ½ cc) at a pharmacy, or many times they will give you one for free if you ask. I do NOT recommend you buy Mazu. Buy the hcg alone and mix it with the Wound Wash.

    Also read the newcomer information series:
    Whoa. I just ordered hcg drops, (not hhgc) and I'm thinkin' all I do is count out ten drops from the dropper and place them under my tongue for 5 minutes. Why would I need, " baby syringe"?

    Uh oh. . .

    drops are not accurate enough- you need to make sure you're taking the right amount of iu's.

    Product format question

    Thank you for this clear and concise post. If I could figure out how to "thank you" as others have I'd do it.

    They are selling the Hucog 5000 i.u. in 30 vials. How much is in each vial? Is it 5000 i.u. in each or do I divide 5000 by 30? Is there an easy way to tell if it is powder versus liquid? I've sent a message to them but haven't heard back.

    just below and to the L of your post, there is a yellow smiley face and it says "thank for this post". click that, and it thanks me!

    each vial is 5000, so you wouldn't want 30 vials unless you were ordering for a group of people. it's all powdered except for the pre-mixed Hucog. it's in a liquid form and seems slightly more potent than the powdered.
