Semaglutide is a medication that can help you with weight loss.
Semaglutide encourages weight loss and intaking fewer calories by mimicking the glucagon-like peptide-1 hormone (GLP-1) in the body. GLP-1 prevents the release of the hormone glucagon, which slows down the release of sugar into the blood so that more fat is burned and slows down gastric emptying to make one feel full longer while reducing the desire for food intake.
Similar to GLP-1, Semaglutide can make one feel less hungry by assisting in controlling blood sugar levels by preventing the liver from releasing sugar into the bloodstream, slowing down how fast the stomach empties food, and making the pancreas release insulin.
