How does Ozempic (Semaglutide) work for weight loss?
The active ingredient in Ozempic is Semaglutide, a medication which is similar to a naturally occurring hormone in your body which is called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1). This is an appetite hormone, which that helps regulate hunger and helps our brain to recognise that we’re satisfied and don’t need any more food.
By helping reduce your appetite and making you feel fuller, this may lead to you consuming fewer calories and therefore losing weight. When paired with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise, this treatment can help you to lose weight and keep it off.
