What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide, also known as (Ozempic™) is a prescription medication for long-term weight management. It is an FDA-approved once-weekly injection that helps with weight loss when used in combination with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity. Several studies have shown significant weight loss for patients on Semaglutide.
The largest clinical trial showed an average weight loss of 35lb (a 14.9% reduction from initial body weight) for people who used Semaglutide.This was five times greater weight loss than those who completed diet and exercise alone.
How does it work
Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.
Semaglutide, an effective GLP-1 hormone agonist, is a key component in keeping diabetes under control. It does so by slowing the rate at which food exits your stomach and blocking glucagon (a hormone that causes your liver to release sugar), resulting in you feeling full for longer periods of time and ultimately leading to weight loss. Furthermore, studies demonstrate its efficacy in reducing blood glucose levels.
