We take an in depth look at Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops to find out more.
Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops is a weight loss supplement that accompanies a low calorie diet program called a Protocol.
If you haven’t heard of diet drops before, many companies sell them and they are usually on the wackier side of the diet pill spectrum. In most cases diet drops accompany a very low calorie diet where you eat around just 500 – 800 calories a day. Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops differs because it offers you a choice of a 500, 800, or 1200 calorie plan. You choose your diet based on your lifestyle and weight loss goal.
Diet drops are always based on the work of a British doctor called Dr Albert Simeons who back in the 1950s devised a very low calorie diet called the Pounds and Inches Protocol. Key to this was that the diet should be accompanied by diet drops containing a growth hormone called Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) found in the urine of pregnant women. The idea was that this trace hormone was good for weight loss and anti ageing. The low calorie diet caused weight loss and the drops were supposed to make it easier to stick to.
These days the many diet drops on the market do not contain HCG, hormones or urine but the idea that diet drops and the so called protocol support a very low calorie diet, persists.
Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops contain very low quantities of amino acids and some general medicinal herbs including Astragalus Root often taken for respiratory problems and Rhodiola Extract a medicinal herb that is known as an adaptogen. The drops also contain small quantity of vitamin B3 or Niacin. The active ingredients are in a solution of grain alcohol which many customers have mentioned.
The ingredients are in very low quantities so this supplement is unlikely to do anything at all but because Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops have to be taken with a very low calorie diet, it is likely that if you follow the instructions you will lose weight. The diet plan comes with recipes and there is free support and advice via a free telephone line that US customers can ring for support 24.7
Creative Bioscience is a US supplements company based in Utah. We have covered numerous weight loss supplements before from this company. Other products include the very similar looking hcg 1234 an alternative diet drops supplement, the 30 day Diet, eac 1234, a weight loss supplement in pill form which is compatible for use with the diet drop supplements, and Diet ReVive an appetite suppressant based on cactus extract.
We have not previously recommended any Creative Bioscience supplements and this company have run into trouble with the State of California for selling supplements with a dangerously high and unlisted lead content.
In addition, according to consumer information, the website has a low trust rating and there are reported issues around negative online feedback. Despite these concerns, the Creative Bioscience website is busy with plenty of visitors.
There are four stages of the diet plan and you can follow the diet for either 3 weeks or 6 weeks.
The phases are as follows:
3 Week Program:
Phase 1: Taking the 1234 Diet Drops (Days 1 – 2). This phase requires that you load your system with as much high fat food as you can while taking the diet drops. You take the diet drops in the following way:
Place the drops under your tongue and hold them there for 60 seconds. Swallow the remaining liquid.
Note: Be sure to take ten drops, three times per day, for a total of 30 drops. Once in the morning, 30 minutes before lunch, and then again 30 minutes before dinner.
Phase 2: Starting the Low Calorie Diet (Days 3 – 21): This is the weight loss part of the plan and requires that you begin the low calorie diet of 1200 -1500 calories per day.
Phase 3: Stabilization (Days 22 – 43): You eat only the food on the accompanying list.
Phase 4: Keeping Your Weight Off (Days 43 – Forever): Once you have learned good eating habits over the preceding weeks the idea is that you managed to stabilise your weight. One way is if you start putting weight on, you have a day where you eat nothing but steak and drink water.
6 Week Program:
Phase 1: Taking the 1234 Diet Drops (Days 1 – 2)
Phase 2: Starting the Low Calorie Diet (Days 3 – 42)
Phase 3: Stabilization (Days 43 – 64)
Phase 4: Keeping Your Weight Off (Days 64 – Forever)

Key features are:
Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops are homeopathic style diet drops that you take in combination with a calorie controlled diet called a protocol.
Homeopathic means that ingredients amounts are very low and in too small quantities to have much effect.
Proprietary 1234 Diet Drops (3070mcg):
Some customers mention that the drops taste of alcohol. Others are disappointed that the drops do not contain any human growth hormone Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG).
Although the diet drops do contain some active ingredients that may have various effects, at such low levels they are very unlikely to do anything at all.
There is some positive feedback for the diet drops from people who have managed to lose weight successfully. Many of these have kept to a daily diet of just 500 calories so maybe this is hardly surprising. What is surprising is that people appear to believe that the drops have anything at all to do with the weight loss when this is so obviously caused by following an extreme calorie controlled diet.
In our opinion, these diet drops are little more than a scam. The weight loss is down to the diet and not this product.
The minimal ingredients are unlikely to cause side effects. However following a very low calorie diet can be problematic.
Side effects may include:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor first if you have any underlying health issues or are taking prescription medication.
Reviews are mixed. Some customers are satisfied with this diet package and have lost weight by using.
I have been using the drops for exactly 7 days. As of today I have shed 8.5 pounds. I follow Dr Simeon’s protocol to the letter. It is important to do the two load days. Although I am only consuming 500 calories I am never hungry. The support from Creative Bioscience is unbelievable….
These drops are great… they have curbed my eating… I love them…lost over 10 lbs. in 3 weeks…..I will continue using them to lose another 10 lbs
Not everyone is as positive. Many customers dislike the taste and the sensation of taking the drops. This lady said:
It’s like literally putting 10 drops of straight up oil under your tongue and letting it sit there for a minute. It tasted horrible, and I gag pretty much every time and it slightly burns the underside of my tongue.
…..Whether or not it works for losing weight, I have no idea because I cannot pull myself to do that every time before I eat…
Some customers complain that these diet drops do not contain HCG. In truth no diet drops contain HCG but some people are disappointed anyway…
I’ve done the HCG diet in the past and saw some great results, like nothing I’ve tried before or since. But these are not the same thing. I followed the instructions to a T, and all I got was a burning sensation under my tongue and digestive distress. I gave it a month to do its magic but I’m going to throw away all three bottles I bought because I can’t take it anymore!
My wife and I have done the HCG diet before but never with this brand. We both found it to be very ineffective and disappointing.
Other comments include:
Tastes bad, doesn’t work don’t waste your money
Don’t waste your money
I don’t feel like it works
It is not rocket science. If you stick to a very low calorie diet, you will lose weight whether you take diet drops or not.
However this type of dieting does come with health concerns.
It is difficult to obtain good nutrition and a VLCD (very low calorie diet) can leave you feeling fatigued and open to heath issues such as gallstones. In addition extreme dieting can lead to yo yo weight gain.
Once you lose a lot of weight rapidly, it is easy to put it back on equally fast once the diet is over.
The findings of Dr Albert Simeons have been discredited. There is no evidence that taking Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) can support weight loss and the Pounds and Inches Protocol has been dismissed by medical experts as nothing more than a fad diet.
This supplement does not contain HCG. It does not contain much of anything and it will have zero effect upon your weight loss efforts beyond a possible placebo effect.

Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops does not come with a guarantee.
We are not impressed with Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops. This supplement contains tiny amounts of active ingredients and the most noticeable effect reported by many customers is that it tastes and burns like rough alcohol.
Of course, you may lose weight and many people have. The diet drops obviously have a strong placebo effect and if this helps you stick to the very low calorie diet that accompanies the product perhaps you may think it is money well spent. That said, we do not advise you to part with your hard earned cash. In our opinion Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops is little more than a scam product and although the Pounds and Inches Protocol and diets based around the work of Dr Albert Simeons have a lot of supporters, the claims do not stand up to scientific scrutiny. The way this diet works is no mystery. If you starve yourself you will lose weight so do you really need to pay at least $55.00 to find that out?
In our opinion it is a no brainer; we reject Creative Bioscience 1234 Diet Drops.
