Semaglutide: A Peptide for Weight Loss

Jun 30, 2021 01:00PM ● By Henry Sobo

Semaglutide, a peptide which had originally been studied to help diabetics lose weight, is now being used to help those without diabetes lose weight as well. The actions of semaglutide include reducing appetite, in part by slowing gastric emptying. This improves control of eating and reduces food cravings. Its active ingredient is what is contained in the medication Ozentic, and it can be used in smaller doses by nondiabetics under a doctor’s supervision—ordering semaglutide through a compounding pharmacy.

In the studies done on diabetic patients, it was also shown to reduce the occurrence of adverse cardiac events over a two-year period. Better blood sugar control was shown by a reduction of HbA1C levels, making this an ideal substance for overweight patients who are at higher risk of pre-diabetes.

This peptide is self-administered in a subcutaneous injection on a once-per-week basis. For those skittish about giving themselves an injection, it is accomplished with a tiny needle just under the skin which is called a subcutaneous injection, done rather simply after in-office instruction. After trying many diets unsuccessfully, people may find that Semaglutide gives them the metabolic advantage which finally results in successful weight loss, which they have never before been able to accomplish.
