How Does It Work For Weight Loss?
GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins (hormones are released by your small intestine) are sent out by your body after you have eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar. It also slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying). This causes you to feel full – lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight.
