This is a doctor-prescribed all natural medication, that is individually formulated for each patient, called Semaglutide or GLP-1.
When a person takes semaglutide for weight loss, the medication works by mimicking the action of a natural hormone called GLP-1, which is produced in the intestine in response to food intake. Semaglutide binds to GLP-1 receptors in various tissues throughout the body, including the pancreas, stomach, liver, and brain.
Everytime we eat, a specific hormone is naturally released in our body that gives a feeling of fullness.
The primary effect of semaglutide is to increase insulin secretion from the pancreas, which helps to lower blood sugar levels. In addition, semaglutide slows down the emptying of the stomach, which leads to a feeling of fullness and reduced appetite. Semaglutide also affects the hypothalamus in the brain, which is responsible for regulating hunger and satiety. By activating certain neurons in the hypothalamus, semaglutide can decrease hunger, increase feelings of fullness, and reduce or eliminate cravings, further promoting weight loss.
Moreover, semaglutide has been shown to have additional beneficial effects on the body, such as improving insulin sensitivity, reducing inflammation, and decreasing fatty liver. These effects can contribute to weight loss and overall improvements in metabolic health.
Your body also has a "set point" which is the number on the scale your weight normally hovers around. The treatment plan creates a new, lower set point after you lose your weight goal amount.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar.
Studies show that semaglutide reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings in addition to improving glycemic control.
