Semaglutide, or Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), encourages the pancreas to release the right amount of insulin, slowing the body’s digestive rhythm, reducing appetite, and stabilizing blood sugar—all of which power the accomplishment of your medically-supported wellness goals without the expense of surgery or other invasive treatments.

What is Semaglutide/GLP-1?

Semaglutide/GLP-1 is the first approved drug for chronic weight management in obese or overweight adults as a weight loss program. Approximately 70% of American adults are obese or overweight, a severe health issue associated with heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer. Losing 5% to 10% of body weight through diet and exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, but diet and exercise alone are not always guaranteed to address the issue.

How does Semaglutide/GLP-1 work?

Semaglutide/GLP-1 works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that influences areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Additionally, Semaglutide/GLP-1 encourages your pancreas to release the correct amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Using Semaglutide/GLP-1 to increase insulin secretion while slowing down how fast your stomach empties food works in the following ways:

  • Slowed digestion
  • Reduced appetite
  • Stabilized blood sugar & energy

A suppressed appetite means you feel full longer, which helps you eat less while losing weight. On average, you can lose up to two pounds per week with a once-per-week injectable, avoiding the expense and discomfort of invasive surgery.
