Top Reasons We Love Semaglutide

Ok so unless we live under a rock we have heard about the weight loss benefits of Semaglutide, commonly known as Ozempic or Wegovy. Weight loss is impressive with GLP-1 medications like Semaglutide. Here are my top five reasons why I love GLP-1 medications like Semaglutide, and Tirzepatide.

  1. GLP 1 medications help effectively reduce visceral fat. Visceral fat is the dangerous fat that encases our internal organs and this increases risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic disease.
  2. Semaglutide helps improve systolic blood pressure and circulation. This is clinically proven in many studies. This medication also decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease and actually improves cardiovascular outcomes.
  3. Semaglutide creates metabolic harmony. GLP-1 medications help regulate and control insulin efficiency and production and in return this creates a peaceful and proficient metabolic system. This allows individuals to metabolize appropriately and stop storing food inappropriately as fat. Metabolic harmony typically leads to hormonal balance and this is paramount to those especially with PCOS or endometriosis.
  4. Semaglutide is FDA and clinically proven to help treat fatty liver disease or (NAFLD). This is HUGE because prior to this finding there was really no other treatment option and our liver is essential for life. Without our liver, toxins build up and then it is only a matter of time until there is demise from toxic buildup in the body.
  5. Semaglutide is the only medications to create a mind-body connection to weight loss. Unlike any other medication, intervention, or even surgery, nothing changes the “food noise” that can occur inside of us. Food noise can occur due to metabolic disease, a genetic component, or lack of effective circulating GLP-1 naturally in the body. Food noise and cravings are rarely due to poor will power, despite what ill-informed practitioners might tell you. Semaglutide communicates through neurotransmitters to the pleasure/craving center in our brain to stop the food noise. I believe this to be the impressive component of this medication.
