Gona-Max (HCG) - a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy, and then to the unchanged excreted in the urine, where it is extracted and purified to produce drugs. Chorionic gonadotropin has the same biological effect as the luteinizing hormone (HCG or gonadotropin), which is produced in the pituitary gland. It's easy to buy in pharmacies without a prescription.
Recent studies have shown the complete inefficiency of this drug when ingested in food supplements, as UK scientists say.
The use of HCG by bodybuilders in the UK
In bodybuilding worldwide, including the UK appreciated, perhaps, only one property gonadotropin - increased secretion of sex hormones (testosterone) testicles. As a result, gonadotropin used as an anabolic agent for muscle recruitment, as an aid to weight loss, and as a component of the PCT.
The use of HCG in anabolic purposes is not justified and is dangerous to health. Firstly, because the chorionic gonadotropin is less efficient in comparison with anabolic steroids. Second, to obtain a good effect arises the need to use it in high doses (4000 IU per week), which can cause irreversible damage to the physiological axis hypothalamus-pituitary-testes. Due to this fact, many of the articles speak negatively about the HCG, forgetting its true purpose
