Weight Loss Support

Are you tired of countless hours at the gym, running the streets, restricting what you eat, counting calories, spending thousands on supplements, and constantly being disappointed in the results? Let’s have some moments of honesty. Food is fantastic, relaxing watching Netflix and chilling can make for a great night in, happy hour with friends fills the soul, and interacting with technology can make time move fast. But as our body ages, we can’t keep doing what we loved to do the year before and expect the same result. And we can’t keep doing what works for someone else. At some point, our body needs help at the cellular level. This is where LushLife can help with Semaglutide.

What is Semaglutide? Semaglutide is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. It works by increasing insulin production and lowering glucagon secretion as well as targeting areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. A small change in the molecule allows the drug to last weeks in our bodies rather than the natural version our bodies make, which lasts minutes. Originally used for diabetes and sold under the name Ozempic®. In June 2021, Wegovy, brand name Semaglutide, was FDA approved for weight loss.

How does it work? Semaglutide acts in the following ways:
  • Delays how quickly our stomachs digest food. Leading to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller meal sizes.
  • Slows intestinal motility so you will feel fuller longer after meals.
  • Lowers blood sugars, in part by reducing the production of sugar in the liver.
  • Stimulates insulin secretion by the pancreas.
Benefits of Semaglutide
