Semaglutide

Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a medication that acts like a hormone made naturally in our bodies. These hormones called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) are made naturally each time we eat, sending signals that tell the pancreas "we got sugar (hooray!)… release some insulin". That signal is also sent to the brain's appetite control center telling it "I've got what I want, we should stop eating" which results in us feeling full. Unfortunately these signals normally only last a few seconds.  Fortunately, Semaglutide makes these signals last much longer than what happens naturally, resulting in feeling fuller, longer, while still burning sugar. Semaglutide also slows the speed at which food moves out of your stomach and through your gut, also making us feel fuller, longer. Semaglutide has also been found to reduce abdominal fat at a higher percentage then whole body fat. Yes, that does mean it works especially well on reducing that stubborn belly fat! 

While taking semaglutide, it is vitally important to improve your eating habits. Semaglutide is a tool that will help you achieve your weight goals, it does not do all of the work. The experienced providers at Simply You Wellness will evaluate your individual needs and goals during your initial consultation to assist you with a plan for long term success .
