Now offering Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Semaglutide is a weight loss injection that works by mimicking a hormone in the body to increase insulin secretion while slowing down how fast your stomach empties food. As a result, it suppresses your appetite, so you feel full longer, helping you eat less and lose weight. It is how people who are taking Semaglutide for blood sugar control lose weight as an additional benefit.

Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (or GLP-1) that targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Your digestive tract releases this incretin hormone after you’ve eaten a meal, lowering your blood sugar by triggering insulin release to block sugar production. Doing so helps you eat less, and patients taking Semaglutide for weight loss can lose up to one to two pounds per week. Diet and exercise are vital to results, as maintaining healthy eating habits is necessary.

Semaglutide is the first of its kind as a safe and highly effective hormone-based weight loss medication.

Some of the health benefits associated with Semaglutide include the following:

  • Lower blood sugar without any increase in hypoglycemia
  • Reduced body weight, lipids, blood pressure, inflammatory markers, and oxidative stress
  • Suppressed appetite
  • Enhanced insulin synthesis and secretion
  • Reduced glucagon levels during fasting and after eating
  • A promoted sensation of fullness in the brain
  • Slowed gastric emptying in the intestines will help you feel fuller for longer
  • Weight loss
  • More significant improvements in cardiovascular risk factors associated with obesity

In clinical trials, Semaglutide helped most recipients lose 10% of their body weight. More than half of them reduced their weight by 15%, the amount that most healthcare professionals say can help reduce the risk of future chronic illnesses. A consultation is required to ensure there are no medical contraindications or health risks.

B12 Ultra Burn Shots

As we age, it becomes increasingly difficult for the body to absorb and process the crucial vitamin B12. Not getting enough of this vitamin can lead to various health issues, such as fatigue, anemia, and nerve damage. Many are susceptible to B12 deficiency, but regular injections can bring immediate health benefits. And by correcting your levels of B12, you can enjoy optimal body performance.

Vitamin B12, also known as cobalamin, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a crucial role in the production of DNA and red blood cells. Vitamin B12 shots can help with energy levels and brain function, boost mood, improve metabolism, and aid in weight loss. Since B12 shots are injected intramuscularly, bypassing the digestive process, they start to work immediately. Typically, our patients experience positive effects between 24 and 72 hours after the treatment. B12 shots can be done monthly or weekly, depending on the patient.

The Ultra Burn shots contain an additional lipotropic component. Lipotropic injections are supplements used for fat loss. These are intended to complement other aspects of a weight-loss regimen, including exercise and a low-calorie diet. Our Ultra Burn injections contain vitamin B12, which is considered safe in large quantities.

In addition, we have a sulfa-free B12 option for those patients with sulfa allergies.
