How it works :It is ( GLP-1) against medications such as: Wegovy, Ozempic, Rybelsus, Saxenda,Victoza and Trulicity, help you lose weight and keep it off long-term. GLP-1 receptor agonists make the stomach empty more slowly, so you feel satisfied with less food. This helps reduce caloric intake without starving yourself.
Second, the GLP-1 receptor agonists reduce appetite, tell your brain when you're full, and decrease cravings. This allows you to make nutritional choices that better align with your goals.

Mounjaro : (tirzepatide)
Mounjaro is working on two hunger hormone receptors: GIP and GLP-1. The average weight loss with tirzepatide is an astonishing 22.5%. Like other GLP-1 medications, MounjaroTM (tirzepatide) is an injectable medication used once weekly, that aids in controlling blood sugar levels and may also support weight loss.
The novel thing about tirzepatide is that it also works on GIP receptors. When you eat food, GIP hormones cause your body to release insulin. But when your blood sugar falls, they stimulate glucagon secretion. Controlling these processes can help support weight loss beyond what GLP-1 medications alone can do.
