What is Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a specially compounded drug that targets appetite-regulating areas of the brain. This compound includes a glucagon-like peptide–1 receptor agonist (GLP-1RA).

Semaglutide is also known by the brand names Wegovy™ and Ozempic™.

How Does Semaglutide Work

Semaglutide works by increasing insulin production, decreasing glucagon secretion, and targeting areas of the brain that regulate appetite. 

This FDA-approved weight loss medication imitates a naturally produced hormone called glucagon-like-peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1RA), making it easy to absorb and highly effective in weight loss management.  This compound is designed to enhance insulin secretion and inhibit glucagon secretion from pancreatic islet cells.

While GLP-1 made naturally in the body lasts for mere minutes, this modified molecule stays in your system for weeks after injection so you are satisfied with smaller meals and feel fuller longer, all while converting more sugar into energy instead of storing it in your blood.

Why Use B12 with Semaglutide

Studies show that Vitamin B12 complements GLP-1RAs such as Semaglutide. Additionally, B12 can reduce feelings of nausea, which can occur with Semaglutide use.

I met Dr. Nielsen through a family member and as we talked about health and wellness Dr Nielson told me of the benefits of NAD+, which is essentially a precursor to our DNA and RNA production. I have arthritis in my back,, neuropathy in my feet and energy levels have been low. I started NAD+ and am experiencing some significant health benefits in energy, reduced pain levels, and brain clarity. I highly recommend Dr. Nielson for her high expertise, skill and personable nature.
