What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved injectable weight loss medication that works by slowing the movement of food through the stomach, which may decrease appetite and cause weight lossIt is currently available under a few different brand names including: Ozempic and Wegovy.

Semaglutide is in a class of medications called incretin mimetics. Incretin mimetics activate GLP-1 receptors and inhibit glucagon secretion which in turn lowers blood sugar.

Another side effect of semaglutide is suppressed-appetite. This is why when Semaglutide is used along with a diet and exercise program it can lead to significant weight loss results.

How do I get Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is only available with a prescription. Schedule a consultation with one of our providers today to see if Semaglutide injections are right for you.  Tirzepatide known by brand name Mounjaro is another popular weight-loss peptide offered at Pure Vitality Center. It also acts on the GLP-1 receptors like Ozempic but also works on GIP (gastric inhibitory polypeptide) receptors which further flows stomach emptying providing a longer feeling of fullness and less desire to eat.

How much weight will I lose?

Weight loss results will vary. Semaglutide weight loss results:  Studies have shown weight loss results from semaglutide up to 10% of body weight.  Tirzepatide weight loss results: studies have shown patients taking Mounjaro, lost between 16% and 22.5% of their body weight on average.

What is the difference between Mounjaro and Ozempic?

  • Ozempic acts solely on GLP-1 receptors
