WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE?

If you’ve tried to lose weight in a healthy way but have struggled, 

this new medication could help. Semaglutide is a prescription medication for type 2 diabetes which is also used to help adults lose weight. It works by helping to reduce hunger and cravings, making it easier to stick to a healthy diet and exercise plan. Specifically, it’s a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 plays an important role in appetite control, and Semaglutide helps to activate its natural pathways. Through this mechanism, it helps to reduce hunger, promote fullness, and decrease cravings.

HOW DOES SEMAGLUTIDE WORK?

Semaglutide works by changing the way certain hormones work in the body. It increases the release of certain hormones, including insulin, glucagon, and GLP-1. This helps to regulate appetite, slow digestion, and reduce fat storage. Additionally, it reduces food cravings and helps to increase feelings of fullness. Semaglutide is a safe and effective way to help people achieve their weight-loss goals. However, it is not meant to be used as a stand-alone treatment. Rather, it should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.
