How Semaglutide Works
Semaglutide works by mimicking the actions of a hormone (GPL-1) that regulates appetite and blood sugar levels. By replicating the signals of this hormone, it leads to multiple physiological responses conducive to weight loss. First, it slows down the emptying of the stomach, leading to increased feelings of fullness and reduced appetite.
Second, it enhances the release of insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and promotes better glucose utilization. Lastly, Semaglutide suppresses the release of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels, thus further facilitating weight loss.
