Wegovy is the latest FDA-approved prescription medication for long-term weight loss. This prescription injection is approved for adults with obesity or excess weight with weight-related medical conditions.
With Wegovy, a low-calorie diet, and an exercise plan, patients may finally be able to lose weight – and keep it off. This unique injectable offers numerous benefits for weight loss, which we’ll discuss below.
How Wegovy Works
The active ingredient in Wegovy is semaglutide. It works by mimicking one of the body’s active hormones, GLP-1.
GLP-1 helps with appetite regulation. By imitating the activity of this hormone, Wegovy can help reduce your appetite and calorie intake, which gradually leads to weight loss.
What Are The Benefits of Wegovy?
Wegovy offers numerous benefits for weight loss, including:
In a 68-week medical study, adults lost an average of 35 pounds or approximately 15% of their body weight. People taking the placebo in this study lost an average of 6 pounds (approximately 2.5% of their body weight).
Additionally, in PIONEER clinical trials, semaglutide was compared to sitagliptin and liraglutide, two other prescription weight loss medications. Semaglutide was found to be more effective for weight loss and reducing blood sugar.
Easy To Inject
Wegovy is a once-daily injection that you can inject into your upper leg, upper arm, or stomach. It comes in a safe, single-use, and easy-to-use pen with a precise dose of semaglutide.
Wegovy offers cardioprotective properties, meaning that it helps prevent coronary heart disease, thrombolysis, and cardiosurgical procedures. This is a significant benefit, given that obesity is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.
