Our providers chose Semaglutide because, in combination with small lifestyle changes, it is one of the safest and most effective long-term options for weight loss. Adults on average achieved ~15% weight loss while taking Semaglutide.
What is Semaglutide?
GLP-1 medications like Semaglutide are different from older classes of prescription weight-loss medications because they work on key underlying metabolic pathways to support sustained weight loss. They're not just another quick fix. Semaglutide fights weight with biology as a once-weekly, FDA-approved weight loss injectable.
How does Semaglutide work for weight loss?
Semaglutide drives weight loss by reducing inflammation while shifting your body’s set point (the weight your body fights to maintain), impacting areas in the brain—to help curb cravings, make you feel fuller faster, and increase your energy expenditure. Semaglutide regulates your digestion and slows how quickly food moves throughout the body making you feel fuller for longer. Semaglutide improves metabolic function and regulates blood sugar levels by increasing insulin and decreasing glucagon.
- Reduce inflammation: Semaglutide works for weight loss by reducing inflammation markers that lead to decreased inflammatory response and oxidative stress.
- Shift your body's set point: Semaglutide aids in shifting your body's set point (the weight your body fights to maintain) by curbing your cravings, making you feel fuller faster, and increasing your energy expenditure.
- Regulate digestion: Semaglutide works for weight loss by regulating your digestion and sugar absorption and slowing how quickly food moves throughout your body, making you feel fuller for a longer amount of time.
- Improve metabolic function: Semaglutide improves your metabolic function and whole-body energy metabolism by increasing insulin sensitivity of muscle cells and regulating fat cell development and blood sugar levels to help you lose weight.
