What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is the generic name for Ozempic and Wegovy, commercially available GLP-1 antagonists. It is an antidiabetic medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and long-term weight management. Semaglutide acts like human glucagon-like peptide-1 in that it increases insulin secretion, thereby increasing sugar metabolism. It works by helping the pancreas to release the right amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high.

Weight loss may result from GLP-1’s reduction of appetite and slowing down digestion. This was a global study of nearly 2000 individuals with a BMI of 30 or greater, or BMI of 27 or greater and coexistent hypertension, dyslipidemia, sleep apnea, or cardiovascular disease. The treatment group received subcutaneous injections of semaglutide, the control a placebo injection; both groups received “lifestyle interventions.” The outcomes of interest were weight loss as measured as a percent change from baseline and achieving a 5% or greater reduction in body weight over 68 weeks.

Semaglutide is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control in adults with type 2 diabetes.[10][11]

The higher-dose formulation of semaglutide is indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise for long-term weight management in adults with obesity (initial body mass index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2) or who are overweight (initial BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2) and have at least one weight-related comorbidity.[12][15][18]

A review of anti-obesity treatments found that semaglutide is more promising than previous anti-obesity drugs.

Adverse Reactions may include: gastrointestinal – nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation.

Why use a compounded version of Semaglutide vs a name brand?

The primary benefit of using a compounded version of Semaglutide (or any other drug for that matter) is the purity of the drug.  Compounding pharmacies are required to use the highest quality available ingredients and often have less side effects than the commercially available products.

In addition,  compounded versions usually are priced at a lower cost than the advertised brands because they don’t have the massive overhead of marketing, advertising and sales channels.

We have personally inspected the facility where we source our Semaglutide and have also inspected the efficacy and purity data of the compounds.  We are confident that our products are of the highest quality and offer the best value in the marketplace.
