How Does Slender Shot For Weight Loss Work?

Semaglutide mimics a natural hormone in the body called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is released after eating and has several effects. In the stomach GLP-1 decreases the secretion of acid and slows gastric emptying which prolongs the feeling of being full, limiting food intake.

In other words, it helps suppress your appetite longer. GLP-1 signals the hypothalamus which is the part of the brain responsible for appetite and thirst*; decreasing water and food intake and promoting weight loss.
