The Game-Changing Weight Loss Peptide: Tesofensine
Tesofensine is the newest game-changing peptide for weight loss! As a serotonin-noradrenaline-dopamine reuptake inhibitor, tesofensine works at the level of the brain by suppressing appetite and increasing resting energy expenditure (your basal metabolic rate). In a previous study examining tesofensine’s efficacy on treating obesity, researchers found that participants achieved all endpoint goals, including an overall 5-10% reduction in baseline body weight and a reduction in BMI. Waist and hip circumference, body fat, and visceral body fat were also reduced in comparison to those receiving the placebo.
