How Semaglutide Works

Semaglutide works by mimicking the action of a naturally occurring peptide, glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), resulting in:

  • Increased insulin production which lowers blood sugar
  • Delayed stomach emptying which reduces appetite
  • Reduced appetite by altering levels of the hunger hormone, ghrelin
  • A synergistic effect causing reduced body fat and weight loss
