Did you know that more than 40% of adults in the United States suffer from obesity? Unfortunately, there is no miracle cure for this condition. Perhaps worse is that more and more adults and children are gaining weight across the country, choosing the convenience of fast and nutrition-deficient foods over healthy eating, exercise, and positive life choices. From an aesthetic standpoint, being overweight is a struggle - clothes don't fit right, people make uncomfortable comments about how you look, and everyday activities are less appealing.
From a health and wellness standpoint, however, being obese is much worse. Your life is literally on the line. The people who love you and depend on you to be in their lives could lose you sooner than you expect. With time, you have a higher chance of suffering from significant, life-changing issues such as:
While obesity is a serious problem, a new medication on the market is giving hope to millions of men and women across the U.S. This game-changing treatment is called Semaglutide in Vancouver, FL. This anti-obesity medication is unique because it treats obesity as a chronic metabolic disease, rather than a problem that can be solved through sheer willpower. The best part? Semaglutide and other medical weight-loss peptides are now available at Global Life Rejuvenation.
At Global Life Rejuvenation, we understand that losing weight is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Our medical weight loss clinic offers custom medical weight loss plans tailored to your body, rather than plans based solely on your age or weight. In fact, our team of doctors and practitioners provides personalized guidance to help you achieve real results and live a healthier life.
Because the truth is maintaining good health and fitness are crucial in the modern world. Research has shown that viruses and diseases are more likely to affect those who are overweight and unhealthy. At Global Life Rejuvenation, we take a comprehensive, custom approach to medical weight loss that includes peptide therapy and more. We then work with you to make positive lifestyle changes, so you can lose weight, get healthy, and boost your wellbeing permanently - not for a few weeks or months.
If you're ready to get back to loving your life with more energy, confidence, and positivity, medical weight loss with peptide therapy may be for you. But to truly understand the benefits of peptides like Semaglutide, it's important you grasp what peptide therapy is and how it benefits your body.
Many individuals turn to peptide therapy to enhance their overall wellbeing by boosting hormones. Different types of peptides can target different areas of health, such as collagen peptides that can help improve skin, hair, and gut health.
Other peptides, such as AOD 9604, CJC 1295, and Semaglutide in Vancouver, FL, are incredibly beneficial for losing weight. Compared to vitamin supplements, peptide therapy works differently as peptides are already part of the proteins in our bodies, making them easier to absorb and benefit from. Conversely, our bodies can sometimes fail to absorb all the nutrients present in multivitamins, leading to their excretion through urine.
However, it's important to note that weight loss is a complex process that involves various factors like age, genetics, lifestyle, exercise, and diet. While peptides like Semaglutide can provide much-needed assistance in achieving your weight loss goals, they are most effective when combined with healthy dietary choices, regular exercise routines, and overall healthier lifestyle choices.
If you've already tried different weight loss plans and diets but haven't had any success, medical weight loss with peptide therapy may provide that extra boost you need to realize your goals.
If you're looking to lose weight and keep it off, diet and exercise are important, but it can be difficult to stick to a routine. For busy adults and parents, Semaglutide can be a helpful tool for weight loss. This injection, approved by the FDA for diabetes and obesity, works by stimulating GLP-1 receptors in the brain to aid in weight loss and improve long-term health.
You may be wondering to yourself, "That sounds great, but how does this type of peptide work?" Semaglutide acts like glucagon in your body, which signals to your brain that you're full and don't need to eat anymore. When you take Semaglutide, and you try to overeat, your body waves a proverbial red flag as if to say, "That's enough."
Semaglutide also slows down digestion, reducing unnecessary snacking throughout the day. By reducing glucose spikes after meals, it reduces inflammation, which is important for overall health. Additionally, Semaglutide helps your pancreas secrete insulin, regulates the glucose levels in your body, and even has anti-aging and longevity properties. If you're struggling to lose weight, peptide therapies for weight loss like Semaglutide can be an invaluable addition to your weight loss plan from Global Life Rejuvenation.
When combined with healthy lifestyle choices like diet and exercise, Semaglutide can help provide:
There are multiple medications available to combat obesity by suppressing appetite and promoting weight loss. However, Semaglutide stands out as an exceptional option.
A recent study of 2,000 obese adults examined the effects of Semaglutide when combined with a diet and exercise program. The results were compared to those who only made lifestyle changes without taking Semaglutide. After 68 weeks, it was found that half of the participants using Semaglutide lost 15% of their body weight, with nearly a third losing 20%. In contrast, those who only made lifestyle changes lost an average of 2.4% of their weight.
It's obvious, then, that Semaglutide is a safe and effective supplement for your weight loss journey with Global Life Rejuvenation. But who is the ideal patient who should be taking it?
If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 27kg/m2 or higher and at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol, or if your BMI is 30kg/m2 or higher, the FDA recommends Semaglutide for weight loss.
As medical weight loss experts, one thing our doctors and practitioners know at Global Life Rejuvenation is that true weight loss isn't dictated by medicines. It's achieved by sticking to a combo of exercise, healthy life choices, and healthy eating habits. From there, peptides like Semaglutide in Vancouver, FL are great for taking your weight loss efforts to the next level of success.
One area where many patients fail in this process is with their diet. If you're considering Semaglutide treatment, keep these diet tips in mind.
To enhance your dietary habits, a practical approach is to concentrate on consuming whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats. These food items are rich in nutrients and can provide a feeling of fullness and satisfaction while also promoting your overall wellbeing.
Eating mindfully involves being fully present and engaged during meals. This entails taking the time to enjoy the flavor of your food, being aware of your body's hunger and fullness signals, and avoiding distractions like electronics or television.
To maintain good health and support weight loss, it's crucial to drink plenty of water. It's recommended to drink at least 8-10 cups of water daily. You may also try adding low-calorie drinks like herbal tea or infused water to keep things interesting.
Planning your meals in advance is an effective approach to maintaining a healthy diet. Set aside some time each week to plan your meals and snacks, keeping in mind to incorporate a balance of protein, complex carbohydrates, and healthy fats. This will prevent impulsive food choices and guarantee that you have nutritious options available when hunger strikes.
Unlike many medical weight loss clinics, which only offer cookie-cutter weight loss plans and one or two additional fat-busting solutions, Global Life Rejuvenation provides access to new, innovative supplements and medicines. If you're used to fad diets and "quick" weight loss plans, peptides like AOD 9604 and others may be new to you. To help build your foundation of healthy living knowledge, let's take a look at a few of the most popular weight-loss peptides and medicines available at Global Life Rejuvenation.
Often combined with Semaglutide regimens, AOD 9604 is known to promote fat breakdown, inhibit lipogenesis, and support tendons and cartilage. However, most recently, it has gained popularity due to its ability to boost metabolism and aid in burning fat.
What sets AOD 9604 apart is that it stimulates the pituitary gland without affecting tissue growth or blood sugar levels. Additionally, it can burn fat without causing overeating, making it a viable option for obese men and women who are trying to implement better eating habits.
Interestingly, AOD 9604 activates your body's fat-burning processes without requiring an HGH receptor. It also releases obese fat cells and reduces the accumulation of new fat cells. By helping to regulate blood sugar and manage insulin levels, AOD 9604 is excellent for weight loss but also for other maladies like inflammation.
Some conditions that this powerful peptide can help address include the following:
This medical weight loss supplement Is technically a combo of two peptides. These substances work by stimulating your pituitary gland to produce more of your body's natural human growth hormone, which is secreted during both waking and sleeping periods.
This results in increased protein synthesis and levels of insulin-like growth factors. As hormone secretagogues, they help release hormones into circulation while mimicking the pituitary gland's production. Extensive research has been conducted on the effects of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin. As a tool for medical weight loss, it has shown very promising results.
That's because when growth hormone levels increase, nutrients are transported through the body faster, more fat is burned, and weight management becomes simpler. Additionally, because CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin increase the amount of growth hormone in your body, it stimulates the breakdown of triglycerides in adipocytes, leading to improved fat metabolism and reduced abdominal fat.
Benefits of CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin for weight loss include:
A Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) injection is a mixture of lipotropics that aid in fat breakdown. The key components - methionine, inositol, and choline - work together to metabolize fat cells and eliminate stored fat deposits in the liver and body. Methionine is an important amino acid, inositol contributes to proper cell formation, and choline is a water-soluble nutrient that promotes healthy liver function. When combined, these compounds may help reduce body fat.
When used in conjunction with a medical weight loss plan from Global Life Rejuvenation, MIC injections can be a powerful addition to reclaiming your health and wellbeing.Request Appointment
Like other weight loss peptides and medicines on this page, Phentermine can help you lose weight when you stick to a medical weight loss plan that includes dieting, exercise, and smart life choices. It does so by reducing your appetite, which limits the number of calories you eat every day.
As is the case with Semaglutide, Phentermine has been approved by the FDA and is supported by clinical studies that show it can support weight loss. With time, patience, and healthy living, this supplement may help you reach your wellness goals sooner than you thought possible.Request Appointment
In the body, 7-keto-DHEA is produced from dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which is a hormone made by glands near your kidneys. However, unlike DHEA, 7-keto-DHEA is not converted into androgen and estrogen in your body. Instead, 7-keto-DHEA is used orally or topically to boost your body's metabolism. It also helps convert more of your energy into heat, instead of storing it in your body as fat, which can accumulate with time and lifestyle choices.
Much like Semaglutide treatment in Vancouver, FL, 7-keto-DHEA has been shown to be very effective for weight loss as well as a host of other issues. Additional benefits of taking 7-keto-DHEA may include the following:
Have you tried everything under the sun to try and eliminate the cellulite on your legs, arms, and other areas of your body? If you're like most people, getting rid of cellulite isn't just difficult - it's nearly impossible. Fortunately, those days are over. Lipo Sculpt Cream from Global Life Rejuvenation can help reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite while also refining your figure and firming up your skin.
The active ingredients in this product have the ability to reduce and prevent the growth of fatty tissue while also improving microcirculation. They work together to treat both adipose and aqueous cellulite, and aid in the elimination of fatty deposits and excess water stored in the tissues. This results in a reduction of dimples and an overall improvement in the appearance of your skin.
If you have experienced success with a medical weight loss plan and reached your target weight but still suffer from cellulite, Lipo Sculpt Cream is a fantastic choice to consider. A few of the most common benefits include:

Panthers coach Paul Maurice indicated Saturday the Panthers would get center Sam Bennett back for the Seattle game on Oct. 28.Asked Saturday morning about the status of Bennett, who has been out with a left foot injury suffered during an Oct. 5 preseason game, Maurice said, “I think he’s not that far off now.

Panthers coach Paul Maurice indicated Saturday the Panthers would get center Sam Bennett back for the Seattle game on Oct. 28.
Asked Saturday morning about the status of Bennett, who has been out with a left foot injury suffered during an Oct. 5 preseason game, Maurice said, “I think he’s not that far off now. He might be knocking on the door for (Tuesday’s game against) San Jose. But, we’ve got a three-day bloc after that, if nothing changes...”
Bennett’s five goals and 10 assists for 15 points in 20 playoff games last spring and 0.64 career points per playoff game vs. 0.44 career points per regular season game indicates he fits playoff hockey’s greater emphasis on grinding, physical play. It also references what the Panthers lose when he’s out of the lineup.
“I still would like to see a bit more physicality at the right time by our team,” Maurice said. “But, it’s a funny thing — you take one player out, Sam Bennett, who’s going to get you two or three hits a night, it changes how you feel about your game.”
The Panthers kept the same lineup as they had with Thursday’s win against Toronto, including Sergei Bobrovsky in goal.
In each of the Panthers wins, they found themselves shorthanded five times. When that happens, Maurice said, expect some Panthers forward’s ice time to shrink. The last two games, that forward has been center Steve Lorenz, 6:31 against New Jersey and 5:37 against Toronto.
“We got into some penalties and I like (Eatu) Luostarinen and (Kevin) Stenlund as a pair,” Maurice explained. “The third (penalty killing forward) grouping ended up being (Ryan) Lomberg and (Anton) Lundell. We’re trying to get Ryan that opportunity to develop himself into a penalty killer. We know Lundell can. He’s always gone with Barkov. It’s time for him to step up and take a more senior pairing. Steve is waiting in the wings for the opportunity.
“Same thing happened to Nick Cousins (against Winnipeg). If we get into a bigger penalty killing game, there’s going to be one forward who’s going to suffer.”
As some Panthers went through an optional morning skate inside Amerant Bank Arena Saturday morning, about 15,000 people participated in an American Cancer Society fundraising walk in the surrounding parking lots and roads. Such events and games in which cancer awareness is a focus mean more than performative pink to Panthers left wing Ryan Lomberg.
“My mom battled with breast cancer a couple of times. Thankfully, she won both battles,” Lomberg said. “You think about if it didn’t go the way it did how my life would’ve changed.”
After opening the season sweeping a home-and-home set against Edmonton, Vancouver lost to Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. Vancouver coach Rick Tocchet left J.T. Miller’s line the same, juggled his three other lines and inserted right wing Ilya Mikheyev for Mikheyev’s first action since January knee surgery.
“He’s going to help (center Elias Pettersson). I think we’ve got to get a guy in there who can win some puck battles for us and get the puck to Petey. When you have a player like him, the more touches he has on his stick, the more good things are going to happen.”
“But, I’ve to to manage the minutes. I’ve got to be careful. I don’t think it’s prudent for him to be playing a ton (Saturday) with Petey. so I might throw some guys in there to relieve Mik.”
Tocchet also thought Mikheyev might help left wing Anton Kuzmenko, who had a goal and an assist in the first four games.
“I think he’s struggling,” Tocchet said. “I think he’s confused on certain things. The biggest thing is if he moves his feet and stays close to his teammates, he’ll get out of this funk. It’s a fickle game. You’ve got to work hard and you’ve got to be close.
“Petey talks to him all the time about it — ‘Stay close to me,’” Tochhet said. “I’ve read the game plan. Teams are going to double up on Petey. If you’re too far away from Petey, he’s only human, he needs help.”
Left wing Nils Hoglander, center Teddy Blueger and defenseman Noah Juulsen were scratched. Casey DeSmith started in goal.

There was a time when Burnaby Mountain, and the areas around it along B.C.'s south coast, was a warmer, less mountainous region where palm trees grew, according to new research that identified plant fossils unearthed at the site more than 50 years ago.
When Simon Fraser University was being built in the late 1960s, paleobotanist Rolf Mathewes was an undergraduate, and he helped gather dozens of plant fossils at a deposit exposed by the construction site. The fossils date back to around 40 million years ago.
SFU then locked the specimens in cabinets, where they remained largely untouched for decades.
Now a professor at the university and at the twilight of his career, Mathewes set out to revisit the plant fossils he helped collect.
"I thought, before I retire, I should really publish something on these fossils. They've never been published and never really been studied," said Mathewes.
Mathewes and his research team verified the collection contained a mix of subtropical and temperate forest elements, giving clues about Burnaby Mountain's climate in the distant past.
The findings were published in the International Journal of Plant Sciences this month, looking into the plant fossils that date back to the late Eocene period. The Eocene lasted from 55.8 to 33.9 million years ago and is known for its warmer climate.
Mathewes says a significant fossil in the collection was a palm leaf fragment. Palm trees can still be planted in B.C., but they can no longer thrive in the region.
"If you wanted to match what kind of climate they're telling us was here, the best match is somewhere around Cape Fear on the East Coast of the United States," said Mathewes.
Mathewes says a global cooling period that followed the Eocene era allowed for the palms in the area to be slowly replaced by temperate trees like elms and sweetgum.
"The palms can tolerate it here, but it's not warm and tolerant enough to make it into the forest."
The team also identified a hydrangea flower and a flower of an extinct plant related to the basswood, which is native to Eastern North America.
"Some of the things that turned up were amazingly surprising ... That includes some flowers and seeds of plants that don't grow here and are only found in either Asia or in eastern North America."
Mathewes also notes the Burnaby Mountain region resembled a floodplain during the Eocene.
"It was a sea-level plain near the ocean with rivers and ponds and marshes on it, and that's where the fossils were produced," he said.
Kendra Chritz, an earth sciences professor at the University of British Columbia who was not involved in the study, says finding the palm in the fossil locality gives further evidence of Metro Vancouver's climate being warm and humid around that period.
"If you think about places where palms grow naturally now like California, Florida or Mexico, imagine something like that but in British Columbia. It's very warm, very wet and diverse," Chritz said.
Chritz says it's important to study periods like the Eocene to help understand today's changing climate. She says the Eocene period had high levels of carbon dioxide, which could inform today's increasing levels.
"This kind of gives us a glimpse of maybe what things might look like, but we also have to remember that this is well before we existed."
Chritz says human activities put a different context to a warming climate, when animals and plants cannot move around and adapt as easily as they did in the distant past.
Mathewes says he's happy to have revisited the fossils he helped collect decades ago. The study is dedicated to his late mentor who oversaw the excavation, Robert C. Brooke.
"I'm glad I managed to finally finish analyzing the story with the help of my colleagues," Mathewes said.
"I should have done it years ago, but I was tied up."

Welcome to the Vancouver Canucks best trades series. In this series, we at The Hockey Writers look back at the Canucks’ trading history with every NHL team and pick what we believe to be the best transaction between them and the other 31 organizations. This article focuses on their trade history with the Florida Panthers.
Over the years, the Canucks and Panthers have been involved in some big trades that included multiple Hockey Hall of Famers being dealt between the two franchises. Overall, the teams have completed over 10 trades since the 1993-94 season, which included four from June 2010 and Feb. 2011. While not every trade resulted in a win for Vancouver, here are the two biggest victories for the Canucks.
Anytime a team deals away a superstar; it is hard to recoup the value they lost. This was the thought back in 1999 as the Canucks dealt Pavel Bure to the Panthers as part of a nine-piece trade. Looking back on the trade over 20 years later, it may have been more balanced than some originally thought.
Starting with what Vancouver gave up, Bure, who was the main piece, would go on to play 223 games with the Panthers, winning two Rocket Richard trophies and recording 251 points during that time. The other pieces that went to Florida included defenceman Bret Hedican, who recorded 68 points in 202 games, defenceman Brad Ference, who, in 167 games, had 28 points and a third-round pick in 2000 that turned into Rober Fried, who did not play a game in the NHL. Overall, it was a good trade for the Panthers as not only did they get the Russian Rocket, they received two decent defencemen who played a role for the organization for multiple seasons.
While the Canucks did not get a 58-goal scorer, their return should not be overlooked. The biggest piece was defenceman Ed Jovanovski who, while he never won any NHL awards, played 434 games with the Canucks and represented Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey and the Olympics. Included in the trade was also goaltender Kevin Weekes who was later traded for Felix Potvin. The Canucks also received a first-round pick, which turned into Natan Smith, who had a strong career with the Manitoba Moose while occasionally being called up to the NHL.
Finally, as for the other two pieces, Dave Gagner and Mike Brown, their times with the Canucks were short, as neither played over 50 games with the organization. While the overall trade was not a win for Vancouver, they did get some value back which was impressive considering the trade request and predicament Bure had put them in.
On June 23, 2006, the Canucks swung for the fences, acquiring goaltender Roberto Luongo from the Panthers. The future Hall of Famer had played 70-plus games in each of the previous two seasons and had represented Canada at the World Cup of Hockey and the Olympics. At 27, he was one of the best goaltenders in the NHL and ready to become the face of the franchise in Vancouver.
Luongo wasn’t the only piece the Canucks got back in this deal. They also would acquire defenceman Lukas Krajicek who played two seasons in Vancouver and a sixth-round pick. That pick would turn into Sergei Shirokov, who played with the organization for two seasons before being traded back to Florida in 2011. While neither of these players worked out long-term for the Canucks, they both were able to help the organization at the NHL and American Hockey League (AHL) levels.
In the trade, the Canucks gave up three players. This included defenceman Bryan Allen as well as goaltender Alex Auld. The biggest piece, though, was forward Todd Bertuzzi, who was the best power forward in the NHL prior to his incident with Steve Moore in 2004. In a way, being able to move the former star was also a win for the organization as it allowed the team to get rid of any distractions that may have lingered from the incident.
Over Luongo’s career with Vancouver, he became the Canucks’ all-time leader in wins and shutouts while also guiding them to within one game of a Stanley Cup. He also was the captain of the team for two seasons and won gold for Canada at Rogers Arena during the 2010 Olympics. One of the greatest players to wear a Canucks jersey; it is clear this was a massive win for the Canucks
While there are plenty of deals to pick from, it is clear the Canucks acquiring Luongo was the biggest win for Vancouver. Not only was it their best trade with the Panthers, it was one of the best trades in franchise history. Whether it was on or off the ice, the man they call “Bobby Lu” had an impact on this organization that few others can match.

Oliver Ekman-Larsson is set to join the Florida Panthers.
The former Canuck, who saw the final four years on his contract bought out last moth by the NHL team, is signing a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the Florida Panthers, CHEK-TV’s Rick Dhaliwal reports.
Former Canucks GM Jim Benning traded for the former Arizona Coyotes star in the summer of 2021. At that time Ekman-Larsson was two years into an eight-year contract, averaging $8.25 million per season.
Benning hoped Ekman-Larsson, who for several years was seen, quietly, as one of the best defencemen in hockey, could be the team’s No. 1 defenceman.
And though he was a capable player in his first season in Vancouver, the high-priced Ekman-Larsson never lived up to his massive contract in Vancouver. Already slow of foot, he broke his foot at the world championships in May 2022 and endured a miserable 2022-23 season.
He couldn’t defend like he used to, struggling defending against both the rush and in-zone, his performance so poor he was even a healthy scratch at one point. Even his scoring production suffered.
Outwardly his positive outlook never wavered, but after the season he admitted the season had been a struggle.
But he also vowed that he would be much closer to his old self for 2023-24. He didn’t have to change his game, he insisted, he just had to be healthy.
The Canucks initialled talked like he was going to get that chance next fall, but once Ethan Bear’s health status changed — he injured his shoulder at the world championships, aggravating a long-standing issue, and had surgery — putting him out of action until December, Canucks management clearly believed that their roster plan needed to be more aggressive and they moved to buy out Ekman-Larsson.
His contract will now live on as a dead-money cap hit on the Canucks’ salary cap budget for the next eight years.
And the kind and friendly Swede will get to chase redemption by the beach with the Panthers.
The Panthers, by the way, are an early-season opponent for the Canucks, who visit South Florida in October on their season-opening road trip.

Thomas Drance of The Athletic: While the Vancouver Canucks do not have to worry about it right now, eventually their focus will have to turn to re-signing Elias Pettersson on a long-term extension.
As Drance writes fans should not be worried about a Matthew Tkachuk situation just yet. Pettersson is only eligible to sign an extension on July 1st. There is a pretty good chance Pettersson stays in Vancouver but it might not be as quick as we think. Even though he likes living in Vancouver there are outside factors from the player and team that may prolong the negotiations,
Drance writes that general manager Patrik Allvin noted there is no rush to get negotiations started, however, the Canucks will make locking him up long-term a priority and try to get that done once the draft and free agency settles down.
David Dwork of the Hockey News: With free agency just around the corner once the NHL Draft is complete, the Florida Panthers will get right back into the thick of things as they begin a short off-season. An area of need will be defence with key players Aaron Ekblad and Brandon Montour potentially missing to begin the start of the season.
The Panthers would like to add a mobile defenceman like Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Shayne Gostisbehere. Florida could go after John Klingberg and Matt Dumba, but those players might be out of the Panthers price right depending on what they are asking for.
Florida has become a destination for players and the Panthers do not have to convince guys to come here anymore. However, with the flat cap players might be going shorter term to maximize their value when the cap does go up.
