Semaglutide 2.65mg / L-Carnitine 100mg / ml

In today’s day and age, there are thousands and thousands of weight loss posts, tips, and videos all over the Internet. They range from great practices to wholly untrue, and it is hard to know which is which. The digital age is overwhelming, especially when you are serious about losing weight. NexGen Health & Wellness offers medically supervised weight loss plans to ensure that you’re always on the right track, with professional supervision and support. Those familiar with medical weight loss may have heard of phentermine, an effective weight loss medication. But new developments are always being made, including those with semaglutide. 

What is Semaglutide

Much like phentermine, semaglutide is an FDA approved weight-loss drug. Although recently approved, this medication has shown immense promise, especially in chronic weight management for overweight adults. Semaglutide is a weekly injection, with dosage depending on the individual. This medication works by binding to and activating the GLP-1 receptor, a receptor commonly targeted in other treatments of type 2 diabetes. Additionally, semaglutide stimulates insulin secretion and lowers glucagon secretion. By slowing down the speed at which the stomach empties and creating a feeling of fullness, semaglutide has proven to be a powerful and long-lasting appetite suppressant. This medication can also improve blood sugar levels, making it a considerable option for those struggling with diabetes. 

In addition to semaglutide, carnitine is added to injection regimens to boost effectiveness. Naturally, carnitine is a critical amino acid in the role of energy production. It’s found in nearly all cells within the body, burning fatty acids to boost metabolism and produce energy. Alongside semaglutide, they make for potent and effective fat burners.

Semaglutide works by binding to and activating the GLP-1 receptor, it stimulates insulin secretion and lowers glucagon secretion when blood glucose levels are high. It also causes a slowing down in how fast the stomach empties and signals to the brain a feeling of fulness. This results in a very powerful and lasting appetite suppression for most patients in addition to improving blood sugar levels.

Carnitine is a potent fat mobilization amino acid.

How Can Semaglutide Help Me?

Just like any weight loss medication, it is highly recommended that semaglutide is used in tandem with healthier lifestyle modifications. As a powerful appetite suppressant, it is most recommended for patients who have a considerable amount of weight to lose to reach their goal. Because of its potency, it’s most often considered for those with at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. Weight loss of any kind has been associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases, especially those suffering from obesity, and the approval of this medication offers adults a valuable new treatment option. 

Dosing Regimen:

For the 1st 4 weeks the dose should be only 0.1ml or 10 units. The dose only if needed for more appetite suppression can be titrated to 0.2ml or 20 units for weeks 5-8. Stay with the same dose if losing weight with no side effects. If there is no weight loss or no appetite suppression or cessation and no side effects then increase to 30 units weeks 9-12 and then 40 units weeks 13-16. No more than 50 units per week is recommended after week 16.

We strongly recommend a weekly subcutaneous injection that can be taken with Megaburn and or B12 for the best results with a healthy lifestyle modification. It is a very potent medication, so titrating the dose slowly is extremely important to decrease the side effect profile of Gastrointestinal issues.

Semaglutide is ideal for patients who have a considerable amount of weight to lose. A powerful appetite suppressant, semaglutide with carnitine can help patients lose more weight with a healthy lifestyle implementation.

Most common side effects can include:
Nausea, increase in heart rate, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal pain, headache, fatigue, dyspepsia, dizziness, abdominal distension, eructation, retinal disorder (diabetes mellitus patients), hypoglycemia (diabetes mellitus patients), flatulence, gastroenteritis, GERD, gastritis, alopecia, lipase increase, amylase increase, injection site reaction, hypotension

Injection Treatments

Injections


NexGen Health and Wellness offers a variety of injections to help with your overall health. There are many benefits to vitamin injections instead of taking oral vitamin supplements. At NexGen Health and Wellness we offer  variety of vitamin injections that are specific to your overall health needs. 

One main benefit to vitamin injections are the ability to bypass the stomach. The stomach acids that aid in the natural breakdown of food also breakdown Vitamin B-12 pill supplements. The body will only absorb a small amount of the actual B-12 from a pill. In addition, as you get older your body’s ability to absorb B-12 through digestion continually decreases.  In fact, many adults are unable to absorb B-12 into their body at all! Injections provide a direct method of supplying your body with the Vitamin B12.

In addition to bypassing the stomach another benefit is better absorption. When you take something by mouth, it has to pass through your digestive system before entering your bloodstream. Unfortunately, that means you lose a significant amount of the nutrients in the pill before they can provide any benefits to your body.

Vitamin injections avoid that nutrient loss by delivering them directly into your bloodstream, resulting in 100% absorption. Plus, if you have any illnesses affecting your digestive system, vitamin injections could be the only supplement option your body can properly absorb. Personalized formulas is a huge benefit to having vitamin injections verses vitamin supplements.

Vitamin B12 injections are one of the most popular and beneficial formulas available. This nutrient helps you make red blood cells, keeps your nerves functioning, and provides energy. But that’s only the beginning when it comes to your vitamin injection options. You can:

  • Managing your blood sugar
  • Supporting your immune system
  • Increasing your stamina and energy
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Improving your gastrointestinal health
  • Decreasing your anxiety and stress

You can also get vitamin injections that help support weight loss.

If you want to get results from a pill or supplement, you have to take them daily, but to get results from vitamin injections, you stop in for a quick office visit once a week or so. Plus, you often see results faster with injections since your body absorbs 100% of vitamins and nutrients immediately.

We also offer IV vitamin infusions. With this approach, you receive a larger dose of vitamins and nutrients through an intravenous drip.
