What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved prescription for weight management that can help control your cravings, blood sugar regulation, and appetite to achieve weight loss!

  • Semaglutide is a weight loss medication  received by once weekly injection
  • Semaglutide  is  FDA-approved  for weight loss

How Does Semaglutide Work?

  • Slows down stomach emptying so that after eating, you feel full longer 1
  • Suppresses appetite and food cravings (on average, patients eat ~30% less) 1
  • Lowers blood glucose levels (without making glucose levels too low) 1

Your body naturally produces several substances that affect your appetite. One of these is called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). The body produces GLP-1 naturally when you eat. GLP-1 stops you from feeling hungry and makes you feel full or satisfied.

Semaglutide imitates GLP-1 in the body. This means that Semaglutide provides the same effect as this natural substance (GLP-1) in our bodies.

Reduced food intake: Because Semaglutide reduces feelings of hunger, you eat less.

Effect on plaques in your blood vessels: In animal studies, Semaglutide stopped the progression of plaque formation in blood vessels. This is likely why Semaglutide has also been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events and strokes. 2

The FDA recently issued a warning about compounded Semaglutide that is made with Semaglutide SALT. We want to assure our current and future patients that our compounded Semagltuide is made with Glycogon-Like Peptide-1 -- the same active ingredient found in the brand name drugs Ozempic and Wegovy. We use an FDA-registered and New York state-certified compounding pharmacy that is compliant with all FDA recommendations and regulations. Our pharmacy DOES NOT USE SEMAGLUTIDE SALT!
