What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a peptide used in diabetes and weight management. This is the ingredient in popular brands such as wegovy, ozempic and rybelsus. It is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar. Unlike many other weight loss medications, this medication can be used for long-term weight loss management.
