About Semaglutide for
Weight Loss

Semaglutide is the active ingredient in the well-known brands Ozempic and Wegovy. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist drug that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an adjunct to lifestyle changes for weight management in adults who are clinically obese or overweight.

In user-friendly terms, GLP-1s aid in lowering your body’s set point (the weight your body fights to maintain) by impacting areas in the brain to help increase your energy expenditure. Even if you pause or stop the use of a GLP-1 medication, there is no evidence of weight regain after using a GLP-1, assuming there has been adequate change in lifestyle and eating habits.

How Semaglutide Works to Help You Lose Weight

Semaglutide’s single-action mechanism solely activates the GLP-1 receptor to regulate insulin and appetite. Its benefits for weight loss in adults are twofold:

  • Appetite suppression
  • Insulin regulation

You self-administer semaglutide injections at home, once weekly. Results of a 15% loss of body weight and an average weight loss of 10 pounds per month are possible.
