Semaglutide Weight Loss Shots
Same Ingredient as Ozempic & Wegovy
The new weight loss drugs Ozempic and Wegovy – popular with both famous and everyday people for rapid weight loss – are taking Santa Fe by storm. Ozempic and Wegovy are both brand names of a generic medication called “semaglutide”. Ozempic was originally developed as a treatment for Type 2 Diabetes, but its amazing weight loss results were soon discovered. Wegovy weight loss shots followed, and was FDA approved for weight loss in patients with certain conditions.
If you have been struggling to get rid of stubborn body fat – and you desire to get the trim body you’ve always dreamed of – semaglutide may be the key to your weight loss success. When you schedule a weight loss consultation at Santa Fe OBGYN, we will help you determine if semaglutide is the right weight loss tool for you.
How Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy) Work
Ozempic, Wegovy and other semaglutide medications facilitate weight loss by lowering blood sugar levels, regulating insulin levels, slowing the stomach from emptying, and dramatically reducing appetite, and . The result is significant weight loss!
Semaglutide medications (including Ozempic and Wegovy) are in a class of prescription drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. These medications act in the same way as the naturally occurring hormone in the body called GLP-1 – that is produced in the gut in response to food consumption. The body’s semaglutide helps to balance and regulate blood sugar levels by increasing insulin and decreasing glucagon.
Semaglutide also slows down the rate at which food leaves the stomach, helping the patient feel full for longer. Additionally, semaglutide also dramatically reduces appetite while improving metabolism. When semaglutide activates the brain’s GLP-1 receptors, your food cravings decline while your feelings of fullness increase. This leads to a substantial reduction in calorie intake without feeling hungry all the time!
Several clinical research studies have found that the weight loss that occurs with semaglutide has the potential to greatly reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke in people who are overweight or considered obese.
Now you too can lose that unwanted, stubborn fat, while regaining your self-confidence, and significantly improve your health with semaglutide. Schedule a medical weight loss consultation at Santa Fe OBGYN today, and see if semaglutide is the right tool to help you lose weight and get the body you’ve always desired.
