Power Quotes From The Show

The Benefits of Peptides

“We see amazing results with peptides from people losing weight, getting stronger, thinking more clearly,  reducing inflammation, boosting the immune system, helping with skin repair, and much more.”Dr. Craig Koniver

Mounjaro VS Ozempic

“The biggest difference is that Mounjaro is a tirzepatide that works on two different receptors while Ozempic is a semiglutide and works on one receptor. And what that translates to for Mounjaro, you get faster weight loss with less side effects. What I like about it is that it's predictable, reliable, and safe. I want for everyone to look, feel, and perform their best.”Dr. Craig Koniver

People Want Peace More Than Happiness

“What people strive for most, more so than wanting longevity, more so than wanting happiness is peace. True peace can never be taken away from you. There is no external circumstance, whether you have a disease or lost someone you love, that could take it away.”Dr. Craig Koniver
