Obesity is a serious health issue that affects more than 2 in 5 adults in the U.S. and is associated with increased risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Losing 5-10% of your body weight through diet and exercise has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in adults with obesity. While there is no magic pill to cure obesity, new weight loss medications (like semaglutide) have been shown to help patients achieve and sustain their healthy weight.

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a type of GLP-1 medication that gained traction in the medical community for its ability to lower blood sugar in patients with type 2 diabetes. Doctors incidentally began figuring out that it seemed to help with weight loss. The FDA approved semaglutide in June 2021 after people in clinical trials experienced significant weight loss.

How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?

Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that regulates blood sugar levels. If your blood sugar rises, the hormone tells the pancreas to produce insulin, which lowers blood sugar levels. GLP-1 also decreases “gastric emptying,” the process by which the stomach contents are moved into the small intestine, increasing the feeling of satiety by making one feel fuller faster and longer.

Red Mountain Weight Loss®’ Licensed Medical Providers prescribe semaglutide (a type of GLP-1) because it has been shown to help patients achieve long-term success when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Red Mountain’s Revolex SGT™ is a proprietary prescription medication that includes an FDA-approved GLP-1 and peptides to improve gut and immune function while supporting effective weight loss. It is featured in our Flex™ weight loss program, which includes a diet plan with a balance of lean proteins, vegetables, and healthy fats, and the freedom to experience a more active lifestyle. Revolex SGT is available as a weekly injection or daily sublingual tablet, giving you the freedom to choose the method that works best for you.
