You can purchase tirzepatide online from Second Nature as part of our Mounjaro weight-loss programme. This programme includes access to a registered nutritionist or dietitian who can help you build healthy habits for lasting weight loss.

You’ll need a prescription to buy tirzepatide, and as part of our programme, we’ll provide this prescription for you and deliver the medication to your door.

You’ll first need to take a short health quiz to determine whether you’re eligible for the drug, as strict eligibility criteria exist.

It’s worth noting that the drug ‘tirzepatide’ is sold under the brand name Mounjaro, which has been approved in the UK for weight loss.

Aside from Mounjaro, the other most popular weight-loss injection in the UK is called Wegovy.

Wegovy (the drug is called ‘semaglutide’) is the same drug as Ozempic, but is available in higher doses. Ozempic is no longer available for weight loss in the UK but only for people with type 2 diabetes.

Second Nature has both a Wegovy weight-loss programme and a Mounjaro weight-loss programme, but as noted above there’s strict eligibility criteria.

How much does tirzepatide cost?

Buying injectable tirzepatide (Mounjaro) from Second Nature starts from £229 for lowest doses of Mounjaro, rising up to £269 and £299 for the highest doses (15mg is the highest dose of Mounjaro).

The cost of the other weight-loss injection, Wegovy, is currently the same: starting from £229 and rising to £299 for the highest doses.

How much weight will I lose on tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide leads to an average weight loss of 25% after 68 weeks and is more effective than other weight-loss injections, like Wegovy and Saxenda.

On Wegovy, average weight loss is around 16%, and on Saxenda, it’s 5-7%.

How does tirzepatide compare to weight loss without medication?

Lifestyle interventions without tirzepatide tend to lead to an average weight loss of around 5-10%.

Losing and maintaining weight loss of more than 10% is associated with significantly reducing complications related to obesity, including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

A recent paper published in The Lancet showed that nearly 20% of participants in lifestyle interventions without medications gain weight, around 40% lose between 1-10% of their body weight, and just 13% lose more than 10%.

In comparison, less than 3% of participants combining tirzepatide with lifestyle interventions gain weight, around 97% lose more than 10%.

Startlingly, more than 68% of participants on tirzepatide lose more than 20% of their body weight.

So, a significantly greater number of people on tirzepatide will achieve clinically meaningful weight loss compared to those losing weight without medication.

Tirzepatide isn’t a magic pill

Weight-loss injections are most effective when combined with a healthier lifestyle. They can help kickstart weight loss while you commit to developing healthier habits.

Mounjaro and other weight loss injections, like Ozempic and Wegovy, can allow you to make lifestyle changes to support long-term weight loss.

These medications can help silence food-related thoughts and give you a boost of confidence with more immediate weight-loss results.

They can also buy you the time and headspace to understand why your body may have struggled to lose weight previously and to build new long-term healthy habits.

The core focus of our medication programmes is to calm down the feeling of food noise, lower your cravings, and allow you to build healthier habits to keep the weight off for good.

The ultimate goal is to make losing weight feel second nature.

Second Nature’s medication-supported programmes

Second Nature has two medication-supported programmes: a Wegovy weight-loss programme and a Mounjaro weight-loss programme.

If you’ve made the decision to try Wegovy or Mounjaro (assuming you’re eligible), why should you choose Second Nature over other medication providers?

For peace of mind.

Second Nature has worked with the NHS for over 6 years providing weight-loss programmes across the UK.

Whilst our Wegovy and Mounjaro weight-loss programmes are private and not currently used by the NHS, we’ve built the programmes with a focus on scientific evidence, patient safety, and data security.

We hope that our 6+ years of working with the NHS and building a track record of effective weight-loss results will give you peace of mind to give us a try.
