Semaglutide Shot for Weight Loss

What is this weight loss shot everyone’s talking about?

Semaglutide has been traditionally used to treat diabetes. It has an amazing effect on weight loss. Semaglutide is a peptide that activates Glucagon-like Peptide-1 receptors. This causes increased insulin secretion, decreased glucagon secretion and a delay in gastric emptying. A peptide is different from other medications in that it is very specific. Peptides target specific receptor sites causing a specific action. Because they’re made of amino acids, the body can easily excrete the peptide with minimal side effects.

If you’re trying to lose weight, Semaglutide really works!  Studies show that within 12 weeks, participants taking Semaglutide lost between 5-10% of their starting weight. At Amethyst Wellness, we’ve seen great results. Semaglutide has become an important tool to help our clients lose weight quickly and effectively.

Semaglutide is administered once a week by injection. Our weight loss professionals are trained to teach our clients to safely administer Semaglutide at home. Our providers meet with clients every month to make sure they are receiving the maximum benefit.
