"The Skinny Jab"
GLP-1 Semaglutide is a cutting-edge medication that provides powerful benefits during weight loss.
Imagine a medication that dramatically lessens your hunger, reduces the amount of food you want to eat, all while regulating your blood sugar, helping those carb cravings to go away. Semaglutide is just that medication!
Many find losing weight and sticking to new eating habits challenging. This powerful new tool can help alleviate some of this difficulty and help you achieve even better results.
Semaglutide is a once-weekly injectable prescription medication that can assist patients with long-term weight management.
This treatment works to facilitate weight loss in several ways, including:
Slowing stomach emptying
Improving insulin release
Diet adjustments are almost always required when you're wanting to lose weight sustainably and successfully, as a negative energy balance is required for weight loss.
However, Semaglutide makes this process easier, as it means that you feel more satisfied for longer after eating less food. Because of this, it helps many people to easily stick to a low-calorie diet without experiencing hunger.
Semaglutide is most effective as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that includes a 500 calorie per day reduction with 20 minutes of exercise per week. Unlike many other weight loss medications, this medication can be used for long-term weight loss management.
It can also help to reduce cravings, as people are generally less inclined to snack if they feel satisfied or comfortably full.
GLP-1s like Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are effective for rapid weight loss. However, studies have shown that when you lose weight, your body can also lose muscle mass, which causes your metabolism to slow down. Muscle burns more calories than fat so it is important to preserve lean muscle as you lose weight. At Optimal Hormones & Wellness, we have added Perfect Aminos to our weight loss program to prevent muscle loss and achieve sustainable weight loss. We specialize in customized programs that include nutrition, science and exercise plans tailored to your individual needs and goals. Our team of experts is dedicated to helping you reach your optimal health and wellness.
If you are trying to lose weight but preserve muscle mass, PerfectAmino can help in two ways: First, it can help build lean muscle, which in turn burns fat. The more muscle you have on your body, the more fat it will burn to feed this muscle. Amino acids are also necessary to make Thyroid, Lipase, Glucogen and HGH, which each have a role in fat-burning.
The second way is by replacing low-utilization protein powders with PerfectAmino. Over 80% of protein powders are converted to sugar in the body, not protein. This sugar triggers a hormone called insulin to shuttle the sugar to the cells for energy production. But when there is more sugar than the body needs, the insulin converts the sugar into body fat (energy for later). At the same time as all of the above, the insulin also suppresses the enzyme Lipase, which is responsible for burning body fat, effectively ensuring that fat is not burned while sugar is in the bloodstream and for about 10-12 hours thereafter. Replacing these powders with PerfectAmino, which is 99% utilized as protein, gets you the same amount of protein or more, while cutting out the high sugar content and insulin spike. And it will not break a fast.
