Mounjaro is an FDA-approved, prescription medication that supports weight loss by suppressing appetite and preventing the release of the hormone ghrelin. Ghrelin is the hormone responsible for your hunger pangs. It’s responsible for making you feel hungry, so by preventing its release, Mounjaro can help you feel fuller faster and for a longer period of time. Mounjaro works by binding to and activating a protein called the GLP-1 receptor. This receptor is found in the brain and gut, and when activated, it decreases appetite. In addition, the GLP-1 receptor also slows down the digestive processes within your stomach, which can further reduce hunger and promote feelings of fullness.
Studies have shown that Mounjaro can help promote weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. In one study, overweight and obese adults who took Mounjaro lost 5% to 22.5% of their total body weight after several weeks. However, for any weight loss medication to work, you must commit to a healthy diet and regular exercise.
