What is peptide AOD 9604?
Peptide AOD 9604 functions as a weight management treatment by targeting fat metabolism and promoting the breakdown of stored fat. This synthetic peptide, derived from human growth hormone, specifically aims to stimulate the release of fatty acids from adipose tissue and encourages the body to utilize these fatty acids for energy production. By enhancing fat utilization and preventing fat accumulation, Peptide AOD 9604 can aid in weight loss and body composition improvement, offering potential benefits for individuals seeking effective weight management solutions.
What is Semiglutide?
Semaglutide operates as a weight management treatment by acting as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. It regulates appetite and food intake by mimicking the actions of natural GLP-1 hormones. By binding to GLP-1 receptors in the brain, Semaglutide enhances feelings of fullness and satiety, leading to reduced calorie consumption. Additionally, it slows down the emptying of the stomach, further contributing to appetite control. This mechanism helps individuals manage their weight by curbing hunger, reducing portion sizes, and promoting healthier eating behaviors, ultimately aiding in sustained weight loss and improved metabolic health.
What is The Skinny Shot?
Now available at Turner Medical Arts: The Skinny Shot, which is a a weekly MIC injection with B12 and L-Carnitine. Vitamin B12 provides energy, and can also improve the central nervous systems and metabolism. L-Carnitine helps your body burn fat, helping you lose weight and have more energy. If you’re trying to lose weight in a safe and natural way, Skinny Shots might be perfect for you!
What is Low Dose Naltexone?
Naltrexone, at low doses, has shown potential effects on reducing food cravings and promoting weight loss. This medication can modulate the body’s endorphin and opioid receptors, affecting hunger signals and promoting a sense of fullness. This can result in decreased caloric intake and improved eating habits, making low dose naltrexone an adjunct in weight management strategies, coupled with changes to dietary and lifestyle habits.
What is the Ketogenic Diet (KETO)?
The KETO diet is a low-carb, high-fat dietary plan that involves drastically reducing carbohydrate intake and replacing it with fat. When carbs are removed, your body enters a state called ketosis, during which time it becomes super efficient at burning fat for energy. It also has the added effect of turning fat into ketones in the liver, thus supplying energy for the brain. There are currently different types of KETO diets out on the market, each of which can be explained during your consultation at our Santa Barbara center.
What is Intermittent Fasting?
Simply put, intermittent fasting involves restricting the amount of calories you take in throughout the day. A common intermittent fasting strategy is to establish a 16-hour fasting window. This means having a light lunch at noon and having dinner at 8pm. The goal of this diet is not to eat less, but to eat less often. By doing so, you naturally reduce your food intake and promote weight loss.
