What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a compounded formulation of GLP-1, glucagon-like peptide, that was approved in 2017 under the name Ozempic® as a treatment for improving glycemic control in patients with Type 2 diabetes. It works by increasing insulin production and lowers glucagon secretion as well as targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Originally used for diabetes and sold under the name Ozempic®. In June 2021, Semaglutide was approved by the FDA for non-diabetic weight loss.
Studies have demonstrated that Semaglutide reduced appetite, improved control of eating, and reduced food cravings in addition to improved blood sugar levels. The greatest weight loss benefits were observed when Semaglutide was used in combination with lifestyle changes, such as improved diet and consistent exercise.
GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin sensitivity and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar. Semaglutide is a compounded Bioidentical formulation of GLP-1. It works by:
- Delaying how quickly our stomachs digest food. Leading to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller meal sizes.
- Slowing intestinal motility so you will feel fuller longer after meals.
- Lowering blood sugars, in part by reducing the production of sugar in the liver.
- Stimulating insulin secretion by the pancreas.
