Semaglutide is a peptide that supports a hormone called GLP-1 which helps regulate blood sugar and slows down gastric emptying. The side effect of this is not feeling very hungry and eating less. At BluVida, we offer several different peptides that support weight loss, including Semaglutide.
Losing weight with Semaglutide
Reducing caloric intake can be effective for weight loss short-term, but there are some things you NEED TO KNOW when losing weight with Semaglutide:
Eating less or little to no hunger means lack of nutrient intake. Hair loss and changes in energy have been reported in the media but there IS something you can do to counterbalance this. We recommend 1-2 Nutritional IVs a month plus a good multivitamin during your semaglutide protocol to replenish the nutrients and keep your hair, skin, nails, and energy levels strong and at optimal levels. We also recommend BC-ATP to help with supporting and optimizing mitochondrial function.
Toxins are stored in your fat cells. Guess what? When you lose fat, you release toxins. When experiencing rapid weight loss, it is important that those toxins are eliminated effectively so you are not experiencing a high toxic load in the body which can lead you to feeling moody, tired, foggy, etc. A few ways we can counteract these effects from toxin removal is through:
- Ozone Sauna – this not only helps to remove toxins but also helps to burn 600-900 calories per session
- 15- Day Liver Cleanse – this supports your detoxification mechanism to function at its best so you support the body’s natural process to eliminate toxins.
- Hypervibe – this not only helps with improving muscle mass and bone density, it also assists with lymphatic drainage and detoxification.
- Binder – while releasing toxins and feeling good during the process, a binder will help to grab and eliminate those toxins from the body more efficiently.
Changes In Muscle Mass
When losing weight with Semaglutide, the weight loss is not only fat but also muscle mass. It is important to be taking in adequate amounts of protein but there are things you can do to build muscle while on this medication. As previously mentioned, Hypervibe is a vibration plate that is working all of the muscles in your body. Emsculpt NEO is also a FDA-cleared medical device that can increase 25% of lean muscle mass in just 4 sessions using High-Intense-Focused-Electromagnetic energy! You are getting around 20,000 contractions in ONE 30-minute treatment.
When we are in our 20’s, our skin’s elasticity is great! Our collagen production and the ability for our skin to bounce back after we hit 30’s declines. The last thing anyone wants is loose skin! Emsculpt Neo also utilizes radio frequency which has been shown to promote collagen stimulation and tighten skin. We also offer Red Light Therapy with the Theralight 360 that has a custom setting to focus on skin tightening benefits.
