How GLP-1 Medication Works

Giving you the how, what, when, and why of the newest weight loss, doctor-prescribed, medicine.

Medicine You Can Count On

The doctor-prescribed, all-natural, weekly treatment is a custom-blended medication that is individually formulated for each patient, called Semaglutide or GLP-1.

Every time we eat, a specific hormone is automatically released in our body that gives us a feeling of fullness. The medicine targets the brain and mimics that full feeling, plus reduces appetite, slows stomach emptying, and ultimately decreases your caloric intake.

Your body also has a "set point" which is the number on the scale that your weight normally hovers around. The treatment plan creates a new, lower set point after you reach your target weight.

Approximately 70% of American adults are obese or overweight. Obesity or being overweight is a serious health issue.  Being overweight and obese puts you at a greater risk for many diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, and is linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer.

Losing 5% to 10% of body weight through diet and exercise has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in adults who are either overweight or obese.

Weight Loss Peptide Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a hormone, produced in the small intestine, that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar.​

Studies show that semaglutide reduces appetite, improves eating control, and reduces food cravings, in addition to improving glycemic control.

Why Semaglutide?

Excess weight is largely a result of eating habits. With busy lifestyles, everyday stress, and our modern food supply, not to mention hormones and genetics, it can be hard to keep the weight off.

What is Semaglutide?

This under-the-skin injection is the first approved drug for chronic weight management, in adults who are either overweight or obese.

What are the Benefits of Semaglutide?

Semaglutide helps to control your appetite and cravings, setting you up for success. Benefits may vary, but you may experience: weight loss, improved fertility, smoking cessation, cardiovascular improvement, and neuroprotective treatment of PCOS.
