Embarking on a holistic weight loss journey can be both exhilarating and challenging. While lifestyle modifications, such as a balanced diet and regular exercise, form the foundation of a healthy weight management plan, certain medications, with the guidance of Able, can play a supportive role. In this blog post, we will explore how Able’s top four medications have shown promising results in assisting individuals on their holistic weight loss journey: Semaglutide (GLP-1), Sermorelin, Thermo-Suppress capsules, and our proprietary combination Bella capsules.
Semaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, is a medication initially developed for treating type 2 diabetes but has recently gained attention for its weight loss benefits. Here's why Able might prescribe Semaglutide for your holistic weight loss journey:
a) Appetite Suppression: Semaglutide works by reducing appetite and increasing feelings of satiety, helping you to consume fewer calories and make healthier food choices.
b) Metabolic Effects: This medication can improve insulin sensitivity and glucose control, which are crucial for weight management.
c) Sustainable Results: Clinical trials have shown significant weight loss results with Semaglutide, with participants experiencing an average of 15-20% weight loss over a year. Its long-lasting effects make it a valuable tool for sustainable weight management.
Thermo-Suppress capsules consist of aframomum melegueta, capsaicin, white mulberry extract, and acetyl L-carnitine. These ingredients work together to speed up your metabolism and help you feel fuller in between meals.
Just like a bear loses fat when it hibernates, the ingredient aframomum melegueta makes the body use up a fat called brown adipose tissue (BAT) to produce heat.
An additional ingredient, capsaicin, comes from chili peppers. It also increases body temperature, which burns more calories.
The ingredient acetyl L-carnitine helps burn fat by transporting fatty acid to the part of our cells that turns them into energy. Higher energy production speeds up the metabolism and combats tiredness.
The ingredient white mulberry extract may slow digestion of carbs. This results in more stable blood sugars, which decreases the client’s cravings for sugary foods.
Able’s proprietary combination capsule combines synergistic medications to support your holistic weight loss journey. Each component brings unique benefits:
Bupropion can aid weight loss by reducing appetite, boosting energy levels, and improving mood, which are crucial for maintaining motivation.
Metformin can contribute to weight loss by improving insulin sensitivity, reducing cravings, and helping regulate blood sugar levels.
Known as the "love hormone," oxytocin plays a role in bonding and social connections. Studies suggest that oxytocin may promote weight loss by reducing stress-induced, and emotional eating.
Topiramate can reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness. It can also improve insulin sensitivity and contribute to weight loss.
Naltrexone is primarily used for treating addiction and can aid weight loss by reducing cravings for certain foods and substances.
Methylcobalamin is a form of vitamin B12 and supports energy production and metabolism, potentially aiding in weight loss efforts.
Able recommends this product and may prescribe it as the combination of these medications creates a comprehensive approach to weight loss by targeting appetite suppression, mood improvement, insulin regulation, and metabolic enhancement.
Sermorelin is a growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) that stimulates the natural production of human growth hormone (HGH) by the pituitary gland. Here's how Sermorelin can assist you in your holistic weight loss journey:
a) Enhanced Metabolism: By promoting HGH production, sermorelin can help increase metabolism, leading to improved fat burning and weight loss.
b) Muscle Preservation: During weight loss, it is essential to preserve lean muscle mass. Sermorelin can help maintain muscle while losing fat, resulting in a toned and lean physique.
c) Energy Boost: Sermorelin can enhance energy levels, making it easier to engage in physical activities and maintain an active lifestyle.
d) Improved Sleep Quality: Adequate sleep is crucial for weight management. Sermorelin can promote better sleep patterns, helping you feel refreshed and energized for your weight loss journey.
When embarking on a holistic weight loss journey, medications can provide valuable assistance by addressing appetite suppression, improving metabolic function, regulating insulin levels, increasing energy, and supporting muscle preservation. Able’s four medications have shown excellent results in supporting weight loss efforts. However, it's essential to discuss these options with your dedicated Able clinician within the Able app to determine the suitability and develop a personalized plan for optimal results. Remember, medications should always complement a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise, in your holistic weight loss journey.
