Diet Pills or Diet Drops? How to Choose


Created: 2012-09-27

With the number of HCG diet products on the market today, and without the right HCG information, choosing the best product for you can be overwhelming. It is essential to determine the best delivery system for taking a diet product and the two most common forms of diet products, or even nutritional supplements, are pills and liquids. In the end, the two questions that need to be answered are what is HCG drops and what are better, diet pills or diet drops? There are several key factors that help answer this question and include ease of use, rate of absorption, purity of the product, and product shelf life. ‘Easier use’ translates to more consistent use of the product and a higher success rate.

 
In addition to choosing the product it is necessary to know what is the HCG diet. The HCG diet is a combination program that includes a low calorie diet and HCG diet drops. To answer the question what is HCG, the dieter must be familiar with hormones and the tasks they perform. HCG is hormones generated naturally in the human body and helps the body metabolize fat efficiently. When HCG is used as a diet supplement in concert with a low calorie diet, fat will burn faster, and the dieter will lose weight quicker.
 
The following HCG information will help the dieter choose what is best.
 
Ease of Use:  
Diet drops are usually concentrated, requiring a small amount of the drops to equal a full dose.  Diet drops can usually be taken orally, right under the tongue or with water or juice.
 
Although more prevalent, pills are becoming somewhat of a nuisance, and we hear the term ‘pill fatigue’ more and more.  This is due to the fact that pills are simply not concentrated enough, forcing consumers to take more and more pills to get the desired effect. Most people are so tired of taking so many pills; they are seeking diet product alternatives.
 
Absorption:  
Diet drops are easily absorbed into the body. The Physician’s Desk Reference notes that 85 to 90 percent of nutrients in liquid drop supplements are absorbed by the body in 22 to 30 seconds.   Compare this to pills that are absorbed at a rate of 10 to 20 percent and take approximately 4 hours for that conversion and there is no question what the preferred choice of diet products should be. 
 
What does this mean in financial terms? It means that, for every $100 spent on diet pills, $80 is wasted due to lack of absorption.  The National Advisory Board (NAB) states that 100 milligrams consumed in tablet, or pill, form equals a concentration of only 8.3 milligrams or 8.3 percent that reaches the blood.
 
Purity:  
Diet drops offer the flexibility to bring together a variety of ingredients or nutrients into one complete product without fillers or extra ingredients that are not always good for the body. In contrast, diet pills or tablets often require binding agents or fillers such as dibasic calcium phosphate (DCP) or microcrystalline cellulose (MCC). Those ingredients are difficult for the body to break down and cause them to pass through the body along with the key ingredients of pills or tablets.
 
Shelf Life and General Care of Product:  
Pills tend to have a longer shelf life than most other forms of supplements, including drops. However, some diet drops’ products have found ways to increase shelf life to more than one year, which in most cases, is sufficient. Diet pills are usually easier to care for, as most do not require special care such as refrigeration. Diet drops are seeing improvement in this area. All the drops we have included on our list do not require refrigeration.
