What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable peptide which, when used in combination with diet and exercise, helps with blood sugar control in type 2 diabetics. It can help assist in weight loss, appetite suppression, lowering your A1C levels, regulate blood sugar, and can help reduce the risk of cardiac disease, lower blood pressure and reduce inflammation. You do not need to be diabetic to take this medication. It is not insulin and most people qualify to take it. Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 in your body to lower blood sugar levels after you’ve eaten a meal.

How does Semaglutide work for weight loss?

GLP-1 agonists like Semaglutide help to control your blood sugar, but people taking them also tend to lose weight. GLP-1, the key hormone involved, slows down how fast your stomach empties food (called gastric emptying). And in addition to causing your pancreas to release insulin, Semaglutide also blocks a hormone that causes your liver to release sugar (glucagon). Together, these functions can help you feel less hungry, causing you to eat less food and lose more weight.   To say this short and sweet.. It can help you to feel full faster.. stay full longer.. and helps you to portion your food intake.
