What is GLP-1?

GLP-1 is a hormone released by the intestines in response to food to aid in glucose metabolism and satiety (feeling full after a meal). GLP-1 decreases the rate at which food empties from the stomach, which reduces calorie intake and promotes weight loss. GLP-1 medications mimick the effects of the bodies own GLP-1 to promote weight loss.

Reduce hunger

GLP-1s help curb food cravings by suppressing appetite

Stabilize blood sugar

GLP-1s improve insulin sensitivity

Slow stomach emptying

GLP-1s slow digestion to make you feel full longer after meals

*Note: Not everyone is eligible for GLP-1 medication. Read more about GLP-1 eligibility in our FAQ.
