Semaglutide is an injectable medication which, when used in combination with diet and exercise, helps with blood sugar control. It belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 in your body to lower blood sugar IeveIs after you've eaten a meal.
Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a hormone that causes huge effects on the regulation of blood sugar by stimulating glucose-dependent insulin secretion. Insulin is a hormone that promotes sugar uptake by the cells, stores sugar as glycogen, promotes the building of fat, and signals the body to build skeletal muscle. In addition, GLP-1 inhibits glucagon release (which slows down the release of sugar into the blood so that you burn more fat), slows down gastric emptying (makes you feel full), and lowers the desire for food intake (because you feel full).
Yes, it’s believed that Semaglutide helps curb your appetite. In addition to slowing gastric emptying to make you feel full longer. GLP-1 also plays a direct role in how appetite is regulated.
No, Semaglutide is not a stimulant. While other weight loss medications, like phentermine, have stimulating effects that help curb your appetite, Semaglutide works differently.
“I settled my weight loss journey in February, needing to lose 40 pounds. I was working out for an hour a day and eating extremely healthy, losing about a pound a week I felt good, however I was only losing weight in my legs and butt, my stubborn belly wasn’t going anywhere. I heard about the skinny shot and thought I would give it a try, I mean it couldn’t hurt right? I got my first skinny shot March 10th, that week I lost 2 pounds! I have continued to get a weekly shot since then, some weeks my weight doesn’t change, but I lose about an inch on my waist and hips those weeks. Then all the sudden. I will drop 3 or 4 pounds in a week. I sweat now during workouts, which I never sweat. I have lost 12 pounds, 6 inches from my waist and 5 from my hips in 7 weeks. I have more energy and workouts are easier! I know I have put on muscle weight as I have tone and definition that wasn’t there before.”
“Never had a massage therapist here I didn’t love! Their esthetician’s are absolutely amazing as well, couldn’t recommend this place more.”
