Semaglutide Program for Weight Loss

Safe, Non Surgical, Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide, an FDA-approved weight loss injection offered by Vitality TK Health, works by mimicking a natural hormone in the body. It increases insulin secretion and slows stomach emptying, which helps suppress appetite and prolongs the feeling of fullness, leading to reduced food intake and weight loss.

 

Originally approved in 2017 to help manage blood sugar levels in Type 2 diabetes at a lower dose, semaglutide was found to aid weight loss as an added benefit. Subsequent studies on higher doses in individuals without Type 2 diabetes led to its approval for weight loss in eligible adults.

How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?

Semaglutide imitates a hormone known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which targets brain regions that control appetite and food intake. After meals, your digestive tract releases this hormone to lower blood sugar by stimulating insulin release and inhibiting sugar production. This process helps you eat less and lose about one to two pounds per week. Although following a reduced-calorie diet can accelerate weight loss and improve long-term results, dieting is not necessary to lose weight with semaglutide.
