Healthy Girl Working Out After Taking Her Supplements While On GLP-1RA

2 Main Supplements A Patient Taking GLP-1RA Should Consider

What is a GLP-1? 

Glucagon-like-peptide 1 is a peptide hormone that mimics the actions of glucagon, which is a natural hormone derived from the pancreas. Glucagon, along with other hormones, works to lower blood glucose levels. GLP-1 works with glucagon to reduce blood sugar and is used in many weight loss diabetes drugs. 

How does GLP-1 work?

Glucagon-like-peptide receptor agonists (GLP-1RA) are a type of drug that promotes insulin secretion and blocks the release of glucagon. The actions of the drug allow them to be considered a diabetes weight loss drug. Another word you’ll hear a lot is ‘semaglutide’, which fits under the GLP-1RA umbrella. Patients using semaglutide often experience semaglutide side effects and nutritional deficiencies. Such side effects can include the following: 

  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Stomach pain 
  • Fatigue 
  • Hair loss  

For patients on other medications such as insulin or sulfonylureas, hypoglycemia or ‘low blood sugar’ is possible. Worsened semaglutide side effects might include pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, kidney damage, or thyroid tumors. In this blog, we will highlight two main SolutionsRx supplements you should take when on a GLP-1RA. 

Revitalize Your Nutrient Levels: The Power of SolutionsRx Multivitamins

Prescription Support is a great multivitamin designed to put nutrients back into the body that many medications have depleted. Our product offers methylated vitamin B12, B9 (folic acid), high-quality CoQ10, and enzymes to strengthen metabolism and combat semaglutide-induced nutrient depletion. Our multivitamin blend also replenishes vitamin D and magnesium as well as many other essential vitamins, making it an ideal selection for patients managing high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, and hormone medications.

SolutionsRx Enzyme Blend for GLP-1RA Patients is a Digestive Saver

As gastrointestinal (GI) motility slows down, uncomfortable semaglutide side effects appear. To ameliorate this issue, we have designed a digestive blend, containing more than 18 different enzymes. Digestive Wellness is a full spectrum of digestive enzymes designed to support healthy digestion by helping the body break down food and absorb essential nutrients. Digestive Wellness contains enzymes that are known to reduce constipation, relieve indigestion, bloating, and gas, and support the digestive system.

The Omega Solution: SolutionsRx Superior Omega for GLP-1 RA Therapy

Supplementation of omega-3s while on a semaglutide can provide additional metabolic benefits and mitigate the semaglutide side effects of a GLP-1RA. Triglyceride-based Superior Omega-3 contains omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower triglycerides, which can alleviate semaglutide’s GI side effects. Our product Superior Omega-3 with Vitamin D can provide even more benefit as vitamin D plays a crucial role in insulin sensitivity and bone health. (Check out Superior Omega-3 with vitamin D here.)

Maintain Strong Bones with MYLK: A Calcium and Magnesium Powerhouse

While GLP-1RAs can bring about health benefits, losing weight rapidly can also cause a decrease in muscle mass, lessen bone density, and lower your resting metabolic rate, leading to gradual loss of muscle mass, strength, and function. How can this be prevented? The answer is calcium and magnesium supplements. SolutionsRx’s MYLK, a calcium product with three forms of calcium, 600 mg EPA/DHA, and magnesium, is the answer. Strengthen your bones and overall health with MYLK. (Click here to learn more!)

Gut Health Matters: Boosting Your Well-being with SolutionsRx Superior Probiotic

Taking probiotic supplements alongside semaglutide can enhance gut health, weight management, and overall well-being. Our Superior Probiotic is a multi-strain probiotic and prebiotic blend that is beneficial in promoting a healthy gut microbiome. It contains 7 strains and can improve digestion, boost immune function, and support weight management. (Discover how this product can support your well-being by clicking here.)
