Semaglutide: What is it and how does it work?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved, long-term weight loss drug. It’s a synthetic version of a hormone that’s naturally produced in your intestines. It helps with weight loss by:

● Helping you feel full, faster
● Helping you stay full, longer
● Decreasing your appetite

Can anyone use Semaglutide?

Semaglutide isn’t for everyone. It’s designed to treat clinical obesity, so if you’re only looking to lose a few pounds, you’ll want to talk to us about our other weight management options.

What does the Semaglutide weight loss program look like?

You’ll first need to book a consultation with Dr. Thomas to assess your eligibility. As we mentioned, Semaglutide isn’t a good fit for everybody. Beyond that, you’ll attend quarterly appointments and have labs drawn on a quarterly basis to evaluate your health and progress. As an added perk, program members are eligible for a free MICC injection (see below) on a weekly basis!

How long does the Semaglutide program last?

We strongly encourage all patients to commit to at least 12 months in the Semaglutide program for optimal results.

MICC Injections for Weight Loss

MICC weight loss injections are a compounded formula of vitamins, amino acids and essential nutrients that shrink fat and give your body a natural energy boost. You may have heard of these injections referred to as:

● MIC Injections
● Lipo-B (MIC) Injections

Regardless of what you call it, MICC injections encourage the body to burn fat for energy and optimize your metabolism.

How do MICC injections help with weight loss?

The nutrients in MICC shots have a lipotropic effect on the body. In other words, they tell the body to use fat as an energy source instead of glucose (sugar). The B vitamins in the formula also improve your metabolism and energy levels. Many report this improved energy helps them meet their exercise goals, which further supports your weight loss goals. MICC shots contain the following nutrients:

Methionine: This is an essential amino acid that helps the body break down fats and supports the production of compounds that regulate appetite and mood. It also contributes to muscle growth and energy production, which can increase metabolism.

Inositol: This carbohydrate regulates insulin sensitivity, which can control blood sugar levels and reduce cravings. It also supports fat breakdown and may help manage mood and reduce anxiety, which can be helpful for emotional eating.

Choline: Choline helps the liver process fat and can help regulate appetite.

Cyanocobalamin: More commonly known as vitamin B12, this vitamin provides an energy boost and helps the body metabolize fats, proteins, and carbs.

Who is a good candidate for MICC injections?

The injection works best when you are active and following a recommended nutrition plan. Monarch Wellness offers a nutrition and lifestyle program that gives personalized guidance based on your body’s needs. The program also offers lifestyle coaching to encourage you on your journey towards better health.

Vitamin B12 Injections for Weight Loss

Vitamin B12 is an essential nutrient for human health. Our bodies can’t produce this on their own so we must get it from dietary sources (animal products). B12 is essential in creating red blood cells and also is involved in fat, protein, and carbohydrate metabolism. People with absorption issues or who follow a vegan diet are at a higher risk for being deficient in B12.

How does injectable vitamin B-12 work?

Vitamin B12 supports weight loss by aiding in the metabolism of fats and carbs for energy production. It also plays a role in regulating metabolism and may help maintain energy levels during exercise, which supports weight loss efforts.
