How Semaglutide Works
Your body uses a Hormone known as GLP-1 (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1) to suppress hunger after you’ve eaten a meal. This hormone also helps regulate blood sugar levels, slows down stomach emptying, and decreases food intake. Semaglutide activates those same GLP-1 receptors in the brain.
This activation triggers a cascade of events that result in reduced appetite and increased feelings of fullness. Semaglutide helps you feel full longer after meals so you don’t suffer from hunger pangs. If you are trying to adhere to a lower-calorie diet, this is the answer.
