Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

 

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a peptide hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, slows gastric emptying, and regulates appetite – all of which aid in healthy and effective weight loss.

 

Studies by The New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of American Medical Association have shown that Semaglutide can reduce appetite, regulate glucose levels, and reduce food cravings that have resulted in a 15% loss of total body weight.

Semaglutide is not a stimulant; it is a non-habit forming, clinically-proven effective peptide for long-term results. It works on the same receptors as powerful, naturally-occurring GLP-1 hormones that exist in your body, which improve your metabolic function, and regulate your digestion so you can feel full longer.

GLP-1s also have powerful benefits including reducing inflammation and risk of cardiovascular disease to help you not only lose weight, but also live a longer and healthier life.

Semaglutide for weight loss slows the emptying of the stomach by binding to the receptors that are located in the lining of the stomach. The slower emptying of the stomach sends a signal of fullness to the brain. This helps reduce your food intake and decreases your appetite, two things that are necessary for weight loss, because you feel full and are less likely to want to eat.

By combining insulin production, which encourages the body to break down foods and fats more efficiently, with the feeling of fullness that comes from the slower emptying of the stomach, you can see dramatic weight loss results with the use of semaglutide.

Semaglutide for weight loss is intended for use by individuals who are diagnosed as obese or overweight. A diagnosis of obesity is usually made with a BMI of greater than 30 while an overweight diagnosis is made with a BMI of greater than 27.

In addition to a diagnosis of obesity or overweight, there also must be at least one weight-related medication condition present. Weight-related medical conditions include high blood pressure, high cholesterol or Type 2 Diabetes.

While semaglutide is safe to use, it is not intended for use if you have any of the following:

Family history of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma (MTC) - a rare form of thyroid cancer
Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome Type 2
Known allergy to semaglutide
Currently breastfeeding or have a plan to breastfeed
Currently pregnant
