What is Semaglutide or the Skinny shot?

If you're looking for a new weight loss treatment, you may have heard of Semaglutide or the Skinny Shot. This injectable prescription medicine can help you lose weight by slowing down your gastric emptying (food leaving your stomach).
That means you'll feel fuller quicker, and stay fuller for longer periods of time. Semaglutide can be an effective weight loss tool for people who are struggling to lose weight on their own. In this blog post, we'll explore what Semaglutide is, how it works, and whether it's the right weight loss solution for you.

If you think semaglutide might be right for you, speak to us, as your trained healthcare provider.

If you are searching for the right place to go for your weight loss management, keep in mind that cheaper is not always better, especially in relation to medications that will be injected into your body. Most providers are getting these medications from compounding pharmacies, which is great, but even though all compounding pharmacies are held to the same standards, not all are created equal. There are a lot of variables to consider. Are they using a salt form? What is there testing potency of the drug? Are they using an oral grade raw material in place of sterile to drive down the cost? Are they resourcing from China vs from US registered and FDA inspected suppliers? Are the ingredients considered "research only" intended for animal use? Find a provider you trust. Don't just look for the cheapest option.
