FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE SAXENDA LIPOTROPIC INJECTIONS?
Our body naturally usually has the capacity to regulate itself to perform at peak levels. However, due to a host of reasons, many of us aren’t able to provide our bodies with the basic essential nutrients it needs to regulate itself effectively. This can lead to a variety of health complications, including weight gain. Lipotropic Injections, such as Saxenda® Liraglutide, were designed to tackle this problem. They are an immediate and effective treatment that provides a variety of natural compounds which function together to burn fat, distribute energy, and remove toxins from the body. Also, in a holistic approach, lipotropic Saxenda can be even more effective when used in conjunction with an exercise and healthy eating plan.
WHICH BENEFITS CAN I EXPECT FROM SAXENDA SHOTS?
Lipotropic Injections may be a fast and healthy way to achieve weight loss. But for most patients effective results are amplified with proper diet and exercise routine suggested. Beyond weight loss, additional benefits from Lipotropic Injections may include:
- Improved Heart Health - due to a possible decrease in cholesterol levels reducing your risk for heart disease;
- Improved Mood - lipotropics help to improve an efficient nervous system and prevent memory loss;
- Improved Liver - by aiding the filtering process and encouraging proper liver function;
- Improved Hormone Balance - by reducing the likelihood of several illnesses from occurring;
- Improved Gut Health and Appetite - as lipotropics reduce appetite as these nutrients work with the metabolic processes encouraging the digestive system to work efficiently;
- Improved Appearance - stronger nails and shinier hair thanks to a boost in essential vitamins and minerals;
- Reduce Arthritis - by encouraging the healthy growth, formation and protection of joint cartilage.
WHERE ON THE BODY IS SAXENDA INJECTED?
All lipotropic shots should be injected as instructed by your health care provider during consultation. Saxenda can be injected under the skin (this is called a subcutaneous injection), in the stomach area (abdomen), in the upper leg or thigh, or in the upper arm. Keep in mind that it should never be injected into a vein or muscle.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT WITH SAXENDA?
There is no fixed timeline for treatments with Saxenda. The individual requirements of your weight loss & wellness program will depend on your health assessment and personal goals. Your doctor will continuously monitor your progress and check if the medication is still the best option for you and is having the desired effect. However you should only continue over a period of 12 weeks if you demonstrate weight loss of 5% when used in conjunction with a calorie-controlled diet and regular exercise.
