How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide is a peptide 1 agnostic (or GLP-1 agonist). GLP-1 is a natural hormone that is produced by the gastrointestinal system to help with insulin production by stimulating the pancreas, BUT it can also help signal to the brain a feeling of fullness.
Semaglutide is designed to mimic the natural hormone of GLP-1. When Semaglutide is injected, the body reacts to it as if it naturally produced the GLP-1. For weight loss, the drug slows the emptying of the stomach by binding to the receptors located in the lining of the stomach – which sends a signal of fullness to the brain. This helps reduce your food intake and decreases your appetite, two necessary components for weight loss.
You can see dramatic weight loss results with the use of Semaglutide by combining two key factors together for optimal results: insulin production (which encourages the body to break down foods and fats more efficiently) with the feeling of fullness (that comes from the slower emptying of the stomach).
