What Are Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

Semaglutide (the active ingredient in Ozempic®/Wegovy®) is a breakthrough weight management medication. Originally developed to treat diabetes, semaglutide began making headlines in Hollywood for its remarkable weight loss benefits. Today, it’s widely available and is quickly becoming a medicine cabinet staple and household name.

Similarly, tirzepatide (the active ingredient found in Mounjaro® and Zepbound™) helps accelerate weight loss and is becoming a go-to weight management solution throughout the South Bay.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist that mimics a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1. The medication triggers insulin production and reduces blood sugar levels, helping you reduce cravings and feel full longer with smaller food portions. Clinical trials demonstrate substantial weight loss by participants that surpass traditional weight loss methods. Beyond weight loss, semaglutide reduces the risk of severe cardiovascular events and boosts overall body image.

What Are the Benefits of Tirzepatide?

Like semaglutide, tirzepatide helps men and women struggling with obesity regulate blood sugar, curb appetite cravings, and delay the release of food from your stomach to signal your brain that you’re full. However, tirzepatide has unique dual action properties that simultaneously activate GLP-1 and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) pathways. Early data suggests tirzepatide may lead to highly substantial weight loss compared to traditional weight loss methods or medications targeting only one hormone.
