How do Peptides Help Weight Loss?
Exenatide. GLP-1 Agonist. That’s how.
This GLP-1 agonist, exenatide, is a peptide hormone that increases insulin secretion and decreases glucagon secretion from the pancreas in a glucose dependent manner.
It is well-known that GLP-1s help suppress appetite. These peptides, so not really drugs, slow the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine. As a result, you may feel full faster and longer, so you will eat less. These peptide supplements mimic the action of a hormone called “glucagon-like peptide one.” When blood sugar levels start rising after someone eats, these peptides stimulate the body to secrete more insulin. The extra insulin helps lower blood sugar levels. Bam. Weight loss in the non-insulin resistant patient; sugar stabilization in the diabetic.
60 µg vials are prescribed by a physician that works with peptides extensively. You reconstitute it, then inject five units (5 µg, sub Q twice a day within 60 minutes prior to morning and evening meals. After a month, this may be increased to 10 units (10 µg) twice a day.
Extensive literature in peer reviewed medical journals is available referencing these desirable and extremely safe effects. It is always better to be more slender than more fat. A fat person lives in a prediabetic state. You’re a ticking time bomb, and must lose the weight. Now you have a healthy, natural way of doing it. And that is, you can do it the way the body does it, using peptides.
