WHAT ARE THE CAUSES OF WEIGHT GAIN?

<p>No matter how many times you might hear it, it’s always good to know the reasons<br />behind weight gain. Some of the key causes of weight gain:</p>

Weight gain isn’t always quite this simple. As we age, our hormones continue to change , even your body’s growth hormone (GH) decreases at a rate of 15 percent for every decade of adult life. This hormone is directly related to a healthy metabolism, exercise capacity, lower levels of fat accumulation, and muscle maintenance. A decline correlates to less insulin like growth factor (IGF-1), a hormone which assists with fat modulation and glucose metabolism. These are the main reasons we struggle to lose weight as we age!

TIRZEPATIDE

Tirzepatide is a once a week injection for weight loss. Tirzepatide is a dual incretin medication which means it attaches to two different receptors. Tirzepatide is different from Semaglutide because along with the GLP1 receptor agonist, it works on another receptor called the GIP, which is a glucose dependent insulinotropic peptide. Both of these hormones are released in response to eating food. The GIP works directly with the pancreas telling it to release insulin. Tirzepatide binds to two different kinds of hormones and leads to a heightened sense of fullness for longer than what our body would produce which is why it is so effective!

LIPOTROPIC INJECTIONS

Lipotropic Injections are used as a dietary supplement that aid in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. These Lipotropic nutrients are compounds that promote the flow of fat and bile to and from the liver. In essence, they produce a “decongesting” effect on the liver and promote improved liver function and fat metabolism. There are many formulas to fit specifically to your needs and boost your energy. This medication is typically given as an injection, also available in nasal spray and capsules.

AOD 9604

AOD 9644 peptide is a fragment of human growth hormone (HGH) that has the natural ability to stimulate the pituitary gland. It can speed up your metabolism, burn fat, and increase calorie burn without causing hunger or affecting blood sugar levels. AOD performs a similar function to HGH and other growth hormones, but with the added benefit of promoting weight loss in a shorter amount of time than just diet and exercise alone. AOD 9604 is especially effective at regulating the body’s metabolism, stimulating the natural fat-burning process and releasing fat from obese fat cells. It also prevents the growth of new fat in surrounding fat cells. This results in significant weight loss and reduced overall body fat, all without any negative effects on appetite or blood sugar levels. In addition to its well-known fat-burning abilities, AOD 9604 offers other benefits as well.

SERMORELIN

Sermorelin is a peptide that helps your pituitary gland produce more hGH naturally. Sermorelin is a synthetically made version of growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH), the endogenous hormone responsible for stimulating natural growth hormone production. Sermorelin stimulates the pituitary gland to produce greater amounts of natural GH therefore it is not synthetic GH. It is used for weight loss, athletic performance, and anti-aging.

METFORMIN SYNERGY

Metformin Synergy is a daily medication to help boost insulin sensitivity and aide in your weight loss and weight loss maintenance efforts. The combination of Metformin, Leucine, and Sildenafil work synergistically to stimulate weight loss and reduce triglycerides. 

CONTRAVE

Contrave (Naltrexone HCL/Bupropion HCL 8mg/90mg) is a prescription weight loss medication that targets two areas of the brain to give patients more control of their eating. Naltrexone and bupropion work within the mesolimbic reward system of the brain to help regulate feelings of pleasure when eating to help control craving. In the hypothalamus, bupropion, and naltrexone work synergistically to curb hunger.

LOW DOSE NALTREXONE

LDN may help curb your appetite by reducing the appeal/cravings of food and aid in increasing the body’s growth hormone levels. Growth hormone helps in weight loss by facilitating the building of lean muscles and burning of fats. LDN helps reduce insulin resistance therefore, not only does it have
the potential to help with weight loss, but it may also address other potential diseases such as PCOS.

HCG

HCG is a daily injection that allows your body to utilize fat as the energy source while losing weight which maintains lean muscle. Diet plan included.40 day cycle
