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.
Semaglutide is a medication that is used for the treatment of obesity and weight loss. It is a type of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which means that it mimics the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that is naturally produced in the body.
One of the main effects of semaglutide is to reduce appetite and promote feelings of fullness, which can help people to eat less and lose weight. Studies have shown that semaglutide can lead to significant weight loss in obese individuals, with some patients losing up to 10% of their body weight.
In addition to promoting weight loss, semaglutide may also have other benefits for people who are overweight or obese. For example, it can improve blood sugar control and lower the risk of diabetes, as well as reduce blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels.
Semaglutide is typically administered as a once-weekly injection and is usually prescribed in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and regular physical activity.
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 lose weight and 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.
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
