Releana HCG is an over-the-counter weight loss product that was originally produced by the Millennium Medical Spa LLC company. It was first created in 1997 and, according to the official website for the manufacturer, it is made by a company that is focused on advanced medical weight loss.
That said, more recently, this product has been sold on the Newport Beach MedSpa website. It appears that either the product was sold from one company to the other, or that the original was discontinued and Newport Beach MedSpa launched its own product under the same name. It is not made clear on the official product site.
However, it should be noted that at the time of the writing of this review, no official Millennium Medical Spa LLC website could be located. Now, its entire proprietary page is found exclusively on the new brand’s site. This indicates that the former company may have closed down entirely.
What is Releana HCG
Though the manufacturer does offer a number of different weight loss solutions, a great deal of their marketing is concentrated on Releana HCG, which is a patent pending product. The website states that the product contains the HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) hormone. They claim that this hormone functions by breaking down body fat stored in the abdominal area.
It is important to understand that HGC is actually a hormone that is naturally produced by the body during pregnancy and that the embryo makes shortly after it is conceived. It is also a hormone that is used as a type of tumor marker, as it is found in certain kinds of cancer.
Releana HCG Ingredient
The only active ingredient in Releana is HCG. The official website for the product is quite detailed and provides contact information that the customer can use in order to speak with a company representative regarding any questions or concerns about the product itself, purchasing it, and using it. The website also provides a number of testimonials from customers who have already tried the product. Before and after photos can also be seen on the site, to help to support those claims.
The official website for this product indicates that it is not meant to be used all on its own for weight loss. Instead, it is one component of a larger weight loss program from the Newport Beach MedSpa.
Who Originally Created Releana HCG?
Though Millennium Medical Spa LLC has supported its claims about the benefits of Releana HCG using real scientific research, it is important to note that the majority of the claims are backed up by studies that were conducted in the 1950s. The research was performed by Dr. Simeons, a British physician. Dr. Simeons conducted the studies about 60 years ago by injecting women with HCG and did note that they lost weight. No clinical trials have been performed since that time to validate Dr. Simeons’ work. Moreover, the experiments that were conducted used injections, not oral drops. This makes the support for the claims being made about Releana somewhat sketchy.
Precautions Before Taking this Supplement
It is highly recommended that anyone considering the use of Releana HCG speak with their doctor before taking these drops. Research has not indicated that taking this hormone either orally or by injection is actually safe, nor has there been any evidence in approximately 60 years that this can help to encourage weight loss or that it will be superior to other better known ingredients already available on the weight loss market.
When speaking with your doctor, be sure to be clear about any medications or supplements you may be taking at the time. Discuss any medical conditions – even mild and/or common ones – as well. This way, you can be certain that there won’t be any contradictions and interactions that could cause side effects or other unwanted reactions.
