Support Healthy Weight Management
Are You Still Struggling With Losing Weight?
If you just can’t seem to lose those extra pounds, you’re not alone — approximately 70% of American adults are obese or overweight. Even with healthy lifestyle changes, regular exercise and a balanced diet, losing weight can still be a challenging prospect for many of us. That’s why Aspire Rejuvenation offers several medical weight management solutions, including semaglutide, which can make your weight loss journey easier while reducing the risk of future health complications.
Why A Healthy Weight Matters
According to the CDC, being overweight or obese has long been linked with several health problems, including increased risk of:
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Clinical Depression
- Sleep Apnea
- Type 2 Diabetes
- Heart Disease
Maintaining a healthy weight is an important step towards living a long, happy and healthy life.
A New Solution: What Is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a modified version of a protein our bodies naturally produce that decreases blood sugar and appetite. When used as a medication, semaglutide has been found to be effective at lowering blood sugar and blood pressure levels as well as suppressing appetite.
Originally used to treat Type 2 Diabetes, the FDA has approved semaglutide as a weight-loss aid when used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.
Common medications containing semaglutide include:
How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide acts as an appetite suppressant by mimicking existing hormones that interact with our digestive system. Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist, a type of hormone that limits how quickly your stomach empties food. By increasing these hormone levels, semaglutide keeps you feeling fuller, longer. This can help you limit your overall calorie consumption, aiding in weight loss.
In a recent study, patients took semaglutide weekly in conjunction with healthy lifestyle changes. The study group saw an average weight loss of -14.9%, a big difference compared to the placebo group, which averaged at -2.4%. In a 250 lb individual, that’s the difference between 37 lbs and 6 lbs!
