What Is Wygovy?

Wegovy is a prescription only weight loss medicine that can help to regulate your appetite and reduce cravings. It can be a very effective medicine to achieve sustained weight loss when used alongside a reduced calorie diet, increased physical activity and healthy lifestyle choices.

You will need to have a full consultation, screening and assessment with a qualified clinician. Not everyone is suitable for this treatment. 

How Does Wegovy Work?

While it isn’t guaranteed to work for everyone, Wegovy can be very effective in helping many people to develop dependable eating habits and reach a healthy weight. It does this in several ways:

Regulates appetite

Wegovy mimics a naturally occurring hormone that targets the areas of your brain that control appetite.

Helps you feel fuller

It slows down your digestive system, helping you feel fuller and more satisfied between meals.

Supports healthy eating

Fewer cravings can help you to develop a reliable eating routine for long-term, healthy habits.

The Science Bit

The active ingredient in Wegovy is called semaglutide. This is a synthetic version of the hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), which is released from the gut after you eat and helps to regulate blood sugar levels. This in turn talks to your brain and tells you you’re full, reducing your appetite and keeping cravings at bay. It also leads to the stomach emptying more slowly, which helps you feel fuller for longer.
