HepatoCore for Natural Ozempic: Supporting your liver for weight loss

by Carly Neubert, BA, NC on July 10, 2024


Are you searching for a less expensive way to lose weight than an injection that costs $1000 per week? With the rise of semaglutide medications, Ozempic and Wegovy---and the new generation of GLP-1 and GIP blockers Zepbound and Mounjaro--- everyone is buzzing about the long-term dangers to your body and your pocketbook.

Several natural ingredients can give you the same effects without draining your bank account and causing long-term side effects or rebound weight gain.  Bergamot, a citrus fruit native to Italy, possesses the same appetite-suppressing, weight loss, and cholesterol control that Ozempic has, without the price tag and organ damage. 

HepatoCORE, with its main ingredient as bergamot extract, may not be as sexy a name as Wegovy, but it can help you achieve the same weight loss and blood sugar regulation. HepatoCORE contains a patented ingredient, Bergacyn FF which is a high polyphenol (antioxidant) blend of artichoke leaf and bergamot.  When used in combination, these two extracts provide better weight loss than either one can do alone. The synergy created by this pair of extracts was proven in a study including over 100 patients. They were each given 300mg of bergamot/artichoke for 12 weeks. The supplement improved fat clearance from the liver and weight reduction. It also improved liver markers which may make it useful in dealing with NAFLD (non-alcoholic fatty liver disease). 

Metabolism – Beyond the Buzzword

The word metabolism gets thrown around a lot in regards to diet. Everyone seems to wish they had a faster metabolism, wanting to find a way to speed theirs up! We all wish we could eat endless amounts of carbohydrates without the risk of obesity or high blood sugar resulting in diabetes.  Metabolism is more than just a weight loss buzzword, it is truly life-sustaining. Metabolism is the process through which what we take into our body is processed and turned into energy and other useful tools for our body. 

Why would liver function be important for your metabolism?  The liver focuses largely on fat metabolism. The typical Western diet is chock-full of refined sugars, carbs, and unhealthy fats which can put a lot of stress on the liver. If these lipids build up faster than the liver can work through them, the liver becomes congested and in turn your cardiovascular health can suffer.  This shows up as high triglycerides, diabetes, NAFLD, metabolic syndrome and obesity.  

This means that supporting your liver goes far beyond just your liver. A healthy liver helps to maintain healthy weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. This is why HepatoCORE’s labeling confidently highlights ‘Cardiovascular Health’. Support for optimal liver function and fat metabolism may be at the core of what your body needs to deal with excess weight and its stress on your system.

Why choose HepatoCORE?

We’ve identified the importance of liver health for weight management, and optimal fat metabolism and the residual benefits to the cardiovascular system, but how does Ortho Molecular’s HepatoCORE help achieve this goal? HepatoCORE is composed of three powerful plant-based compounds: Bergamot Orange Extract paired with Artichoke Leaf Extract and supported by Aged Black Garlic Extract. Bergamot and Artichoke are paired together in Ortho Molecular’s unique blend “Bergacyn FF”.

Bergacyn FF proved its muster in a study released in 2024 showing lowered weight gain and an increase in brown fat.  Brown fat is known as the “good” fat that regulates your body temperature, helps to burn excess white (bad) fat and regulates blood sugar and metabolism. Obesity and abdominal weight gain are primarily white fat that surrounds your organs and are blamed for health problems such as diabetes, high cholesterol and blood pressure. 

The pairing of Aged Black Garlic Extract provides another unique set of benefits. Aged black garlic parallels raw garlic in its benefits in regards to preserving liver function and protecting heart health, but as an added bonus it offers a higher concentration of key antioxidants. These antioxidants focus on supporting your heart and blood pressure and lipid levels. This gives HepatoCORE an extra boost, the supplement does not stop at simply helping with fat metabolism and liver function. As these processes are worked on by the Bergacyn FF Blend, Aged Black Garlic steps in to assist cardiometabolic health to provide well-rounded support from all angles.

Why Choose the Poor Man’s Ozempic?

Besides being a fraction of the price, a natural GLP-1 supplement does not cause any of the same side effects as semaglutide. Ozempic and other medications warn of side effects that include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, organ damage, and possible cancer.  Not to mention the rebound weight gain once you discontinue the outrageously expensive injections. 

Ozempic is intended for short term use in order to give patients time to develop skills, eating habits and lifestyles that support healthy weight loss.   While it is being used and touted by celebrities who do NOT have diabetes, it is only approved for diabetic patients.  While this new class of drugs, GLP-1 blockers, may seem like the ultimate and final answer for weight loss, none of us are naive enough to believe it is a panacea.  Since at least the 1950s, Americans have been obsessed with weight loss and despite being one of the wealthiest counties in the world, we are NOT one of the thinnest or healthiest. Could the answer to healthy weight loss, diabetes, and NAFLD be as boring as a healthy diet and lifestyle?  

How to take natural Ozempic

HepatoCORE, with its studied nutrients and no dangerous side effects, is a safe and effective option to jumpstart weight loss, decrease cravings, and increase cardiovascular health. The studies on these nutrients that illustrated weight loss took place over 12 weeks, so I recommend at least a 3-month trial of HepatoCORE.  That is a 3-bottle commitment to HepatoCORE.  If you have high blood pressure on top of obesity or diabetes, I recommend combining HepatoCORE with HiPhenolic because of its proven ability to support blood pressure and fat metabolism.  


What is Ozempic?

Ozempic, which is a brand name for the drug semaglutide, is a one-time-per-week injection. 

What is the difference between Ozempic and semaglutide?

Semaglutide is the generic name of a medication for people with diabetes.  It is a medication that mimics a hormone, GLP-1, that your body makes and releases when you eat.  This hormone travels to your brain and signals that you have eaten and need to stop eating.  In this way, your appetite is reduced.  

Is semaglutide the same as Ozempic and Wegovy?

Yes, Ozempic and Wegovy are both semaglutide medications and work to control appetite by binding to GLC-1 receptors in your brain. 

Is Ozempic the same as Zepbound and Mounjaro?

Zepbound and Mounjaro are injectable medications that bind GLP-1 and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypetide) receptor sites in your brain.  Ozempic only binds to GLP-1 cell receptor sites. 

Can semaglutide damage your pancreas?

Yes, there is a documented report of acute pancreatitis by a patient using semaglutide. 

What does semiglutide do to your brain?

Semaglutide and its brand name medications Ozempic, Wegovy and others, are GLP-1 agonists.  The medications mimic a hormone (GLP-1)  that your gut releases when you eat.  You end up feeling full with less food and your pancreas releases more insulin than it would otherwise.  The end result is lower blood sugar, less food intake, and more feelings of fullness and satiety.

What is the black box warning on semaglutide?

Semaglutide has a black box warning for its potential for thyroid tumors and cancer. 

What are the side effects of Ozempic and other semaglutide medications? 

Ozempic and other semaglutide medications can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, intestinal blockage and rebound weight gain.  

Additionally, Ozempic has a black box warning for it’s potential for thyroid tumors and cancer. 

Novo Nordisk, the makers of Ozempic and Wegovy admitted that “not unexpectedly, patients experience weight regain once they stop taking the medication”

What is Nature’s Ozempic?

Several natural supplements can be used to achieve the same effects as Ozempic and GLP-1 medications.  Among those are bergamot, turmeric, and berberine.

What is a natural Ozempic alternative?  What is a natural semaglutide? 

Like berberine, bergamot has been studied for lowering blood sugar, blood lipids (cholesterol, and activating AMPK. Ozempic can achieve these by mimicking GLP-1, while the natural extracts support your own body in making more GLP-1.
