Ozempic (Semaglutide) is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). GLP-1 RAs work by mimicking the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1, which is naturally produced in the body. Ozempic (Semaglutide) helps regulate blood sugar levels, reduce appetite, and promote weight loss. And reduces the risk of heart disease, hypertension, stroke, and diabetes.
Mounjaro (Semaglutide) (FDA APPROVED), also a GLP-1 RA medication, helps regulate blood sugar levels, reduce appetite, and promote weight loss. It offers an additional option for individuals striving to achieve their weight loss goals.
