What is Semaglutide?
If semaglutide sounds familiar, that is because, before it was approved for use for long-term weight management, it was the active ingredient in medications used to treat Type 2 Diabetes. In 2017, Ozempic, an injectable medication with the main ingredient of semaglutide, was approved by the FDA for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes.
People began to notice that while Ozempic increased insulin production by stimulating the pancreas, which helped to lower blood sugar levels, it had another unexpected side effect – weight loss. In 2021, this revolutionary weight loss medication gained FDA approval and has since helped thousands of people lose weight. Just how much weight have people lost with the use of Semaglutide? Clinical studies showed that many people were able to lose 15% to 20% of their starting weight with the use of semaglutide.
How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide 1 agnostic. It is commonly known by its much shorter name of GLP-1 agonist. GLP-1 is a natural hormone that is produced by the gastrointestinal system to help with insulin production by stimulating the pancreas, but it can also help signal to the brain a feeling of fullness. Semaglutide is designed to mimic the natural hormone of GLP-1. When it is consumed or injected, the body reacts to it as if it naturally produced the GLP-1.
Semaglutide for weight loss slows the emptying of the stomach by binding to the receptors that are located in the lining of the stomach. The slower emptying of the stomach sends a signal of fullness to the brain. This helps reduce your food intake and decreases your appetite, two things that are necessary for weight loss, because you feel full and are less likely to want to eat.
By combining insulin production, which encourages the body to break down foods and fats more efficiently, with the feeling of fullness that comes from the slower emptying of the stomach, you can see dramatic weight loss results with the use of Semaglutide.
