They’re HCG diet plans, and they’ve got to be the most controversial, purported weight-loss plans of all time. There are literally thousands of brands and hundreds of combinations of orally administered so-called HCG products to be had. But do any of them really work? To tell you the truth, almost every expert will say either “absolutely not,” “the reduced calorie diet plan caused the weight loss” or “the weight loss was the result of the placebo effect.” Yet the fact remains that tens of thousands of men and women swear by it… just ask your friends. But if you’re going to try an oral formula and see what all the fuss is about, make sure the formula you choose is processed according to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and made in the U.S.A. Do not settle for substitutes or products claiming to be “Homeopathics” manufactured from unauthorized animal parts. NiGen BioTech™ guarantees that its branded “HCG Solution” contains the full spectrum of human chorionic gonadotropin amino acid isolates derived from certified grade raw materials (the very purest materials available) which are then processed according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), is made in the U.S.A. and is hormone free.

I have a pretty good handle on science from that perspective. Some of our recent presidents have admitted to experimenting with drugs. What about you? No, ma’am. Not unless you call caffeine a drug. Or cold beer or whiskey. In the past, you’ve said that “unless my family is at gunpoint, I will not go to Washington, D.C.” If you’re elected, do you plan to govern from Texas?
