Wegovy lowers body weight in humans mainly through reducing calorie intake. It regulates appetite by increasing feelings of fullness, while lowering feelings of hunger, leading to reduced food intake. The active ingredient in Wegovy is semaglutide. This medication is known as human-glucagon-like-peptide-1 analogue, also known as a GLP-1 receptor agonist.
