Ozempic is semaglutide (a GLP-1) that may be prescribed for weight loss, if appropriate. It’s a once-weekly shot that works by mimicking your body’s natural hormones, helping you feel fuller faster and for longer.
Ozempic users experienced a significant average weight loss of 12.4 pounds within 26 weeks. This weight reduction is attributed to the appetite-suppressing effects of GLP-1, which aids in reduced food intake and prolonged feelings of fullness. Additionally, GLP-1 accelerates stomach emptying, further contributing to decreased appetite.
