All About GLP1 and Weight Loss

Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a hormone that is produced in the small intestine. It works by stimulating cells in the pancreas to secrete more insulin.

Insulin is a hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels.

High levels of insulin are often associated with obesity. Insulin can cause fat storage and weight gain, especially around the midsection of your body (known as visceral fat).

As well as increasing insulin secretion, GLP-1 also decreases appetite and increases feelings of fullness after eating. This is why GLP-1 has been linked to weight loss.

How Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Helps with Weight Loss

GLP-1 acts on receptors in your intestines to promote the release of insulin from the pancreas, which helps lower blood glucose levels after eating. It also slows down digestion, which means you feel fuller for longer after eating a meal containing carbohydrate. This reduces the amount of food consumed at each meal and over time can lead to weight loss. It is important to incorporate a healthy diet and exercise when using GLP1.

Studies have shown that GLP1 can be used to treat obesity, as well as other conditions such as type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
