What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide can help control your cravings, blood sugar regulation and appetite to achieve significant weight loss! Semaglutide is an FDA-approved prescription for weight management.
- Semaglutide is a weight loss medication received by weekly injection
- Semaglutide is FDA approved for weight loss
- Semaglutide is more effective than all prior weight loss medications!
How Does Semaglutide Work?
- Slows down stomach emptying so that after eating, you feel full longer
- Suppresses appetite and food cravings (on average patients eat ~30% less)
- Lowers blood glucose levels (without making glucose levels too low)
Your body naturally produces several substances that affect your appetite. One of these is called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). The body produces GLP-1 naturally when you eat. GLP-1 stops you from feeling hungry and makes you feel full or satisfied.
Semaglutide imitates GLP-1 in the body. This means that Semaglutide provides the same effect as this natural substance (GLP-1) in our bodies.
Reduced food intake: Because Semaglutide reduces feelings of hunger, you eat less food. When combined with a healthy diet, exercise and everything @Chill Cryotherapy, Semaglutide will help you lose weight!
Effect on plaques in your blood vessels: In animal studies, Semaglutide stopped the progression of plaque formation in blood vessels. This is likely why Semaglutide has also been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events and strokes.
