HCG is the hormone that is produced by the placenta during pregnancy. This hormone is what a pregnancy test detects. It stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. During a normal pregnancy, the HCG levels will steadily rise throughout pregnancy.

hCG is a glycoprotein hormone produced during pregnancy. There are some companies who are producing certain diets and drops based on hCG but they have as little as 1% hCG in there.

Beta HCG is a molecule composed of two pieces: alpha and beta HCG. Free beta only stresses you're talking about a loose beta subunit instead of it assembled into the intact HCG molecule.
