Weight Loss

Tirzepatide is an effective tool in managing weight and metabolism

Tirzepatide – Tirzepatide (brand name Mounjaro or ZepBound) is an injectable anti-diabetic medication which, when used in combination with diet and exercise, helps with blood sugar control, appetite control, and weight loss. Tirzepatide is a long-term supplement that is approved by the FDA for Type II diabetes when used with diet and exercise. According to the Mounjaro study, 3 out of 4 people reached an average A1C under 7%. A New England Journal of Medicine study of 2,539 patients showed weight loss, when coupled with lifestyle changes, was up to 20.9% of body mass over 72 weeks. 

Tirzepatide is unique in that it works by activating two incretin hormones in your body, GLP-1 (glucagon like peptide – 1) and GIP (Gastric inhibitory polypeptide).

Tirzepatide helps regulate blood sugar by helping with insulin releases and blocking certain sources of sugars. It aids in the function of digestion which helps you feel full quicker and longer. This means your body does not need as much intake as normal as it works off the food it has. Since you will have this feeling of “fullness” please be careful to not overeat as it may cause gastric distress.

Tirzepatide also acts on appetite centers in the brain to decrease hunger whilst also helping to reduce leptin resistance (a hormone that can affect your metabolism and weight).

It helps to speed up your metabolism and increase fat burning by reducing glycogen and reducing insulin. It also helps avoid the urges for quick-fix sugary foods by promoting normal blood glucose levels.
