How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide has a couple different effects on the body that are responsible for its weight loss results.


Semaglutide acts on the hypothalamus, a part of the brain that you could think of similar to a thermostat that controls more than just the body temperature. The hypothalamus also regulates our mood, blood pressure, sleep, and sex drive. But an essential function related to weight loss is the sensation of hunger and fullness controlled by the hypothalamus.Semaglutide makes you feel fuller for a longer amount of time and reduces cravings. This allows you to have an easier time opting for lower fat and healthier options.


Semaglutide also slows down the speed of digestion. Put more simply, semaglutide keeps the food in your stomach for longer than usual, keeping you full longer.
