Over the past 40 years, adult obesity in the United States has tripled, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Even though a variety of weight loss medications have been available for decades many are only modestly effective, and weight loss surgery is not only costly but can have adverse outcomes. There is finally an answer to the age-old question “How can I lose weight?” The answer is Semaglutide.

Is Semaglutide the same thing as Ozempic? Yes- Ozempic, and Wegovy are made by Novo Nordisk from Semaglutide. Semaglutide injections are safe and highly effective for weight loss in non-Diabetics due to its hormone-based formula that “convinces” the brain that the body is full.

When does Semaglutide begin working? How long does Semaglutide last? Semaglutide injections begin working within the first 24-48 hours after the first injection and the effects can last for years. A 2-year study, which was presented at the Obesity Week conference in November of 2021, proved that the drug’s weight-loss benefits were sustainable.

The health benefits of Semaglutide are plentiful: reduced blood sugar level, body weight, blood pressure, inflammation, and HbA1c. In addition, Semaglutide suppresses appetite by promoting a sensation of fullness in the brain by mimicking the hormone, GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1)

According to results published in February 2021 in the New England Journal of Medicine, Semaglutide helped those with obesity lose at least 10% of their body weight and more than half reduced their weight by at least 15%. Does Semaglutide reduce belly fat?

Does Semaglutide increase energy? People taking Semaglutide have experienced improvements in waist circumference and overall body composition by reducing excess body fat—this includes abdominal fat! The more body weight a patient loses, the greater the improvement in body mobility and the more exercise a person gets the more endorphins are produced which gives you energy and elevates mood.
