Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). When you eat, GLP-1 is released in the gut, which tells your brain that you are getting full. It can also slow the movement of food through your stomach and small intestine, helping you stay fuller for longer. As a result, you may eat less food, which can lead to weight loss.

How does it work? 

Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). When you eat, GLP-1 is released in the gut, which tells your brain that you are getting full. It can also slow the movement of food through your stomach and small intestine, helping you stay fuller for longer. As a result, you may eat less food, which can lead to weight loss. 
 

Tirzepatide is a dual receptor agonist. GLP-1 receptor agonists and GIP receptor agonists target different hormones that affect your digestive system. One increases insulin production while the other increases insulin sensitivity. It signals to the brain that you are full, so you eat less. By slowing the movement of food through your stomach, you will eat less 

Vitamin 12 (cobalamin) helps our bodies to process certain amino acids (proteins), which may reduce nausea, a common side effect of this medication. 

Studies have shown that Tirzepatide resulted in greater weight loss than Semaglutide. Both are given as once a week injections.
