What Is Semaglutide

Semaglutide is an FDA approved injectable medication used to aid clients with weight loss. Semaglutide is made from agents that act like glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1 hormone), an intestinal hormone that is released by your small intestine after you have eaten to lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar.

How Does It Work?

The GLP-1 hormone targets an area of the brain that regulates appetite and food intake, it slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach causing you to feel full, decreasing your appetite and resulting in weight loss. Semaglutide is administered once weekly for weight loss. We encourage a consultation with our provider.
