Weight Loss Program in Hillsborough County

Medical Weight Loss

Our team uses a medically supervised program known as SEMAGLUTIDE to support healthy weight loss and long-term weight maintenance.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. It works by increasing insulin production and lowers glucagon secretion as well as targets 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 Semaglutide 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

  • Decreased appetite and cravings
  • Weight loss
  • Improved blood glucose control

VitaminMed Weight Loss

Are you looking for a structured, results-oriented approach to weight loss? Then, we may have the answer. VitaminMed is a healthy and effective weight loss system that our highly qualified staff will walk you through and support each step of the way.

Most people struggling with their weight find they fluctuate but don’t maintain a steady weight or keep off what they’ve lost. We have a stress-free and easy program that works for all body types.

By following the VitaminMed program, you will lose pounds and inches as you lose weight safely.

Our program helps guide you to lose fat as opposed to muscle mass and good fat reserves – both, muscle mass and good fat reserves are crucial to the body.

Benefits of Weight Loss

Some of the most crucial benefits of weight loss are decreasing your risk of stroke, heart disease, gastroesophageal reflux, fatty liver disease, and even diabetes.

Additional benefits include:

  • Increase in energy: when your body requires less energy to complete simple tasks such as walking a flight of stairs, your stamina increases and gives you lasting energy throughout the day.
  • Improve your breathing: one of the first effects of weight loss is improved oxygen efficiency. When there is more pressure on your body, it limits the amount of air your lungs can hold when you inhale.
  • Increased mobility: With less pressure on your back, joints, and hips, your mobility and range of motion improve as normal function returns. Moving around freely will become easier as you progress.
  • Reduce cholesterol levels: reducing the amount of fat metabolism in the body lowers your chances of inflammation. The body begins to reverse insulin resistance and can better regulate lipoproteins and hormones.
  • Feel better: ridding the body of that stubborn fat may give you an overwhelming sense of success and overall happiness as you increase self-esteem and confidence.
