GLP-1 medications work for weight loss
Some call them miracle drugs. We consider them a safe and effective way to kickstart weight loss when nothing else has worked. Weight gain is not a failure of willpower; it’s driven by biology.
Why GLP-1 medications?
Fad diets don’t work. GLP-1 medications do. Clinically proven and FDA approved, GLP-1 medications safely counteract the key genetic, behavioral, and environmental factors that keep people from losing weight.
They work with your biology, not against it, to shift your body’s set point, improve digestion, regulate blood sugar, and reduce inflammation, so you can focus on making lifestyle changes that last.
How do GLP-1 medications work?
By mimicking the gut-derived hormone, GLP-1, these medications decrease the activation of the brain’s reward system from eating.
Lower blood sugar
When blood sugar increases after eating, these drugs cause the body to produce more insulin. The extra insulin helps lower glucose levels.
Limit fat absorption
When GLP-1 levels are increased, the production of glucagon is reduced, which leads to a reduction in fat accumulation in the liver.
Feel more full
The passage of food from the stomach into the small intestine is slowed by GLP-1 medications, helping you feel fuller faster and longer after eating.
