The Next Generation Of Weight Loss Treatment

Tirzepatide (Mounjaro/Zepbound) is a groundbreaking treatment that harnesses the power of two hormones — GLP-1 and GIP — to control blood sugar levels and promote effective and sustainable weight loss. The activation of these hormones leads to decreased appetite, improved insulin sensitivity, and increased fat metabolism. Tirzepatide is the name of the active ingredient — Mounjaro and Zepbound are the names of the medications containing Tirzepatide.

At Fountain of You, our utmost priority is furnishing our patients with top-tier medications to bolster their health and wellness objectives. Presently, we dispense compounded, generic formulations of Semaglutide or Tirzepatide procured from a cutting-edge, US-certified compounding pharmacy. These medications undergo stringent quality assurance protocols to uphold their safety and purity standards. While we diligently track the availability of brand name drugs like Wegovy®, Ozempic®, Mounjaro™, and Zepbound™, our dedication remains steadfast in providing efficacious treatment alternatives tailored to your individual requirements. Be assured, we are unwavering in our commitment to delivering optimal care for your overall well-being.

Mounjaro vs. Zepbound: What’s The Difference?

Mounjaro and Zepbound are medications developed by Eli Lilly. While both of them have the active ingredient Tirzepatide, they are approved for different purposes. Both medications work by mimicking the effects of incretin hormones, GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). However, Mounjaro is primarily used to control blood sugar levels for individuals with type II diabetes, and Zepbound is FDA-approved for weight loss and weight management.

How Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) Works

To help control your blood sugar, as well as help you lose weight, we offer Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) in Virginia Beach. It tackles both problems at once. Mounjaro functions by mimicking incretin hormones, specifically GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). GLP-1 enhances insulin secretion from the pancreas in response to high blood glucose levels and suppresses glucagon release, reducing liver glucose production. GIP also promotes insulin release and inhibits glucagon secretion. Together, they lower blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes.

How Zepbound (Tirzepatide) Works

Zepbound (Tirzepatide) targets weight loss by activating GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) receptors. These incretin hormones play vital roles in regulating appetite and food intake. GLP-1 reduces appetite and slows gastric emptying, leading to decreased caloric intake. GIP enhances this effect. Together, they help in reducing body weight, primarily by decreasing appetite and food consumption. For those who have struggled with dieting or eating fewer calories, this opens the door to never-before-seen changes in weight loss. Experience Zepbound (Tirzepatide) in Virginia Beach and see the difference for yourself.
