Phentermine: increases release of neurotransmitters which simulate metabolism and suppress appetite. Phentermine simulates the release and inhibition of certain neurotransmitters in your brain, specifically, dopamine and norepinephrine and essentially tricks your mind into feeling full of the added benefits of increased energy.
Phendimetrazine: is an amphetamine derivative classed as an appetite suppressant. This medication is better suited for those already acquainted with appetite suppressants, who do not need a medication as long acting as Phentermine or individuals with comorbidities less suited for Phentermine.
Diethylproprion: Is a cathione derivative of amphetamine. It is the gentlest of the prescription appetite suppressants. This medication is useful for the individuals who do not tolerate some f the stronger appetite suppressants and for those on hypertensive or diabetic medication and for those who would like to go at a slower pace.
Phentermine/Topiramate: This is a combination of Phentermine as explained above with Topiramate that has been shown to exhibit weight loss with a reduction in visceral body fat. Topiramate works on the brain to decrease calorie intake and is primarily used for those individuals who have more weight to lose.
Bupropion/Naltrexone: is a novel weight loss drug that combines a noradrenaline/dopamine reuptake inhibitor with a non-selective opioid receptor antagonist. Research reveals that this combination works on the reward system pathways that regulate food intake and body weight.
Semaglutide: is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. It works by increasing insulin production and it lowers glucagon secretion as well as targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. A small change in the molecule allows the drug to last weeks in our bodies rather than the natural version our bodies make, which lasts minutes. Originally used for diabetes and sold under the name Ozempic®. In June 2021, Wegovy, brand name Semaglutide, was FDA approved for weight loss.
AOD 9604: Is a synthetic analog of the human growth hormone developed to combat obesity and help people lose weight. AOD stimulates the pituitary gland similar to human growth hormone to speed up the metabolism and increase weight loss in a shorter period of time than just diet and exercise alone. It is known to Reduce body fat, increase calorie burn, trigger fat release, prevent non-fatty food from turning into body fat and does not exert effects on blood sugar levels or tissue growth.
Peptides for Weight Loss
Peptides are proteins in your body makes naturally, however, as an add-on, they can help with immediate, rapid weight loss and better body composition.
Canagliflozin: Used for immediate, rapid weight loss. It is especially useful for individuals who are insulin resistant. This peptide works by getting rid of dietary glucose and excreting it thorough the kidneys. Individuals can expect 2.5lbs (1kg ) of weight loss per week.
Sermorelin/Glycine: Used for additional weight loss while optimizing overall health and weight benefits at weeks around weeks 6 to 8 of use. It signals the brain to release the body’s own growth hormone, thereby increasing muscle mass (the body’s metabolic engine), increasing exercise capacity, and increasing bone density. It’s additional benefits include improved hormonal balance, enhanced energy, mental clarity/cognition and strengthening of the immune system. Sermorelin combined with Glycine also lessens daytime fatigue, and significantly improves skin elasticity, tone and texture.
Amlexanox: Produces reversible weight loss and improved insulin sensitivity. It has been shown to selectively inhibit TBK1 and IKK that it produces substantial results in terms of reducing HbA1C levels and increasing insulin sensitivity.
Peptides for Anti-Aging
VIP (Vasoactive Intestinal Peptide): VIP is a naturally produced 28 amino acid neuropeptide that functions as a neuromodulator and neurotransmitter. It is a potent vasodilator, regulates smooth muscle activity, epithelial cell secretion, and blood flow in the gastrointestinal tract. It functions to support healthy hormone levels, works to limit inflammation, regulates the immune system, and helps in the healing activity of the brain.
Dasatinib: Is a targeted therapy, classified as a signal transduction inhibitor, historically used to treat certain cases of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Dasatinib works to rid the body of senescent cells (non-functioning cells), which can release factors that cause inflammation and dysfunction.
Senescent cells accumulate with aging and at etiological sites in multiple chronic diseases.
Rapamycin (Sirolimus): This medication has been found to possess immunosuppressive and anti-proliferative properties in mammalian cells due to its ability to inhibit mTOR. mTOR has been implicated in many of the processes that are associated with aging, including cellular senescence, immune responses, cell stem regulation, autophagy (consumption of the body’s garbage collected within each cell), mitochondrial function, and protein balance. Furthermore, Rapamycin’s inhibition of mTOR has been shown to regulate cell senescence thus reducing its age-related pathology and loss of function. This will ultimately improve an individual’s physiological function and extend longevity.
Growth Hormone (Norditropin, Omnitrope, Saizen and Zomacton): is a vital hormone made by the brain from birth and causes maturity. Because the body’s growth hormone levels naturally decrease with age, repletion of decreased levels reduce fat, build muscle, restores hair growth and color, strengthens the immune system, helps to normalize blood sugar, increases energy, improves sexual function, sleep quality, vision and memory.
