BioJust Medicated Weight Loss Program

Overview

If you have suffered from obesity and tried everything with no results, we get it.  You are not alone. More than 70% of U.S. adults are carrying around extra weight, increasing their risk for chronic conditions such as type 2 diabetes, heart and liver disease, arthritis, and some cancers. The good news is that losing weight can significantly reduce the risk of developing these conditions.

If you are ready to lose weight and want to maximize your results, BioJust is offering a medication weight loss injection called Semaglutide. FDA-approved for weight loss, Semaglutide is a weekly injectionthat helps you shed weight quickly and keep it off. Backed by research, patients lost on average 15% of their total body weight when taking Semaglutide for 6 months or longer, with some seeing better results by adhering to an intentional eating and exercise program.  

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. GLP-1 stops you from feeling hungry and makes you feel full or satisfied. Similarly, Seaglutide:

·      Reduces stomach emptying so that after eating,you feel full longer

·      Suppresses appetite and food cravings (on average patients eat ~30% less)

·      Reduces blood glucose levels by stimulating insulin secretion and lowers glycogen secretion

Because Semaglutide reduces feelings of hunger, you eat less food. When combined with a healthy, intentional diet and exercise program,Semaglutide will help you lose weight.

 Am I a good candidate for Semaglutide?

In order to be considered a good candidate, you must fit the following criteria:

·      Have an initial BodyMass Index of 30 or greater

·      Have an initial Body Mass Index of 27 with at least 1 preexisting co-morbidity (type2 diabetes, hypertension, or dyslipidemia)

 

This medication weight loss injection is meant to help jumpstart your weight loss and help you keep it off for good!
