Semaglutide mimics the action of a naturally occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which plays a vital role in regulating blood glucose levels. It also delays “gastric emptying,” meaning the food you consume will take longer to break down and digest to create a feeling of fullness and satiety.

Tirzepatide is an ingredient in diabetes medication that the FDA approved for weight maintenance in November 2023. Clinical trials showed tirzepatide to be effective in helping people both with and without diabetes lose weight. Some patients lost up to 20% of their overall body weight in a 17-month study.

This new medication is different from semaglutide in that it mimics the action of two receptors in the body: GLP-1 and GIP. The additional GIP receptor activation improves how the body breaks down sugar and fat, which leads to enhanced results.

Keep in mind that semaglutide and tirzepatide are not magic pills. Weight loss medications are most effective when combined with healthy lifestyle modifications to achieve and maintain your desired results long-term. That is why we prescribe Revolex TRZ as part of our Flex weight loss program to help you lose up to 15 lbs. or more per month.
