Find Out If You Are A Candidate For The Weight Loss Drug Semaglutide
The first breakthrough weight loss medication in over a decade, Semaglutide is getting a lot of attention for its promising results in those who previously had no success with other treatments and efforts. Nason MedSpa is now providing expert consultations and medical oversight for weight loss using the wonder drug Semaglutide for those who are candidates. Semaglutide is the primary acting ingredient in popular brand names including Ozempic, Rybelsus, and Wegovy. Nason MedSpa’s Weight Loss program helps patients take control of their weight loss and boost energy by compounding a unique blend of semaglutide and lipotropic B-12 ingredients optimized for fat loss, detoxification, and metabolism-boosting.
It is a medication that is taken by injection once a week. The medication works by reducing the amount of food that you eat and by increasing the amount of energy that you use.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an injectable medication that is used to treat obesity in adults. It is approved for use in people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or a BMI of 25 and a disease that causes weight gain, such as type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol or other chronic illnesses contributing to insulin resistance.
Semaglutide is the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist. GLP-1 is a natural hormone in your body that acts on your brain to regulate your appetite and food intake. Originally used to help regulate insulin among diabetes patients, it was discovered that Semaglutide also helps people lose weight.
Semaglutide works by increasing the amount of energy that you use and reducing food consumption, helping you to lose weight. It has also been shown to help reduce blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes by reducing food cravings.
Semaglutide is usually taken once a week as 1 mg or even 0.5 mg injections, which can be done at home. In some cases, Semaglutide might also be used in combination with other medications to help you reach your weight loss goals.
How does Semaglutide work?
Semaglutide works by increasing your body’s metabolism, which leads to more calories burned. In addition, it works by decreasing food cravings, which helps to reduce calorie consumption. Semaglutide helps to reduce both consumption and expenditure of calories, promoting weight loss.
The drug works by targeting specific hormones in the body. It binds and activates two hormones, amylin and GLP-1, that control appetite and metabolism. The hormonal activation of these two hormones suppresses hunger and can enhance the body’s ability to burn calories.
Semaglutide also helps to reduce blood sugar levels. It works by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin. This reduces your chances of having high levels of blood sugar, which is a major cause of weight gain.
Who is a candidate for Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is intended for people who are overweight or obese and have a body mass index (BMI) of at least 25. It is only to be used in adults aged 18 years and over.
