Juniper deep on science

Your biology influences your weight

That’s why weight isn’t a motivational issue, it’s a medical one.
Stress
During periods of high stress, levels of cortisol (the ‘stress hormone’) can increase. This can trigger increased appetite[1] and may make it difficult to maintain healthy eating habits.
Hormones
Decreased oestrogen levels during menopause or perimenopause can lead to increased visceral fat around the abdomen as well as decreased muscle mass.
Genetics
Studies have shown that up to 80% of weight is determined by your genetics.[2] Genetics can affect appetite, satiety (feelings of fullness), metabolism, food cravings, and body-fat distribution.
Metabolism
Slower metabolic rates take longer to produce energy, meaning you may require fewer calories than you thought to maintain a healthy weight.[3]

How the treatment works from within

Click below to see how our treatments interacts with different parts of the body.
body
Brain
Receptors target the control centre of the brain (the hypothalamus), which leads to increased feelings of fullness and reduced hunger signals.
Stomach
The treatment slows the emptying of the stomach into the small intestine, which makes you feel fuller for longer.
Liver
The treatment reduces glucose production which lowers blood sugar, and modifies the way the liver stores and processes other nutrients. This reduces cholesterol levels and leads to a more efficient metabolism.
Pancreas
The treatment increases insulin production in the pancreas, stabilising blood sugar and improving the way our body processes fat and manages nutrients.

What medications does Juniper use? Are they approved in Australia?
expand icon
All medications prescribed by Juniper clinicians have been approved for use in Australia, and are commonly prescribed by GPs for the treatment of weight management. However, due to Australian Therapeutic Goods regulations, we are unable to share the names of our treatments until you have completed a consultation with one of our Juniper practitioners and are approved for treatment. This is to ensure a qualified medical professional discusses all the options available to you before you make any decisions regarding medical treatments.
How does the medication work?
expand icon
Juniper’s most prescribed treatment is a breakthrough medication approved in Australia for weight loss. The treatment is made up of a molecule that works like the glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor. GLP-1 is an appetite hormone that your body naturally produces to help regulate hunger. Juniper’s medication works like GLP-1 by suppressing your appetite and increasing the feeling of being full. This makes it easier for your body to maintain a lower weight, meaning you won't have to fight so hard to keep the weight off.
Will I experience side effects on Juniper’s medication?
expand icon
All medications come with a risk of side effects, but side effects experienced on Juniper’s medication are usually temporary and can be reduced and managed. The most common side effect on Juniper’s medication is nausea, with 40% of users experiencing this temporarily. Other common side effects include reflux, headaches, constipation, vomiting, fatigue and irritation to the injection site. We know these side effects are not ideal, but they are common and normal among patients on this class of medication.

Thankfully, our Juniper team will be there to guide and support you through managing and reducing any side effects.
What happens when I stop taking the medication?

Juniper’s medication is an effective long-term treatment for losing weight and keeping it off. Patients should continue treatment until they have formed sustainable behavioural changes to maintain results and prevent weight regain after they come off the program. We’re with you as long as you need us.

How does the treatment work?

Juniper’s most effective treatment mimics a naturally concurring hormone to suppress appetite and overhaul hunger signals, helping patients feel fuller for longer. Unlike other medical treatments of the same class, this treatment also acts on a secondary hormone pathway that promotes fat loss and blocks fat gain. By combining the effects of these hormones together, this treatment is more effective at promoting weight loss through reduced appetite, as well as acting directly on the pathways that lead to fat loss.
