How Saxenda® Works

Saxenda® addresses one of your body's natural responses to weight loss.

Saxenda® works like GLP-1 to regulate your appetite, which can lead to eating fewer calories and losing weight

Saxenda® works like GLP-1 to regulate your appetite, which can lead to eating fewer calories and losing weight

  • Your body naturally produces an appetite hormone known as glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1) that helps to regulate your hunger
  • Saxenda® works like GLP-1 by regulating your appetite, which can lead to eating fewer calories and losing weight
  • Saxenda® is not a stimulant
