What is Semaglutide / Wegovy?
It’s not a miracle drug, and is not for everyone. Our RN (with support of our medical team) will work with you to decide if it’s right for you and your goals. You should be wary of anybody offering it without a consultation. Our semaglutide (the active ingredient in Wegovy) is compounded with L-carnatine to support fat metabolism. Weight loss expectations (for most, not all) should be 1-2lbs per week.
