Introducing Slim in the City
What is Slim in the City?
Known by the brand name Saxenda this is a daily injectable prescription medication (Liraglutide 3mg) which may help some adults with excess weight, who also have weight related medical problems or obesity lose weight and keep it off.
How Slim in the City Works
Liraglutide the active ingredient in Saxenda works on your body’s natural responses to weight loss. Your body naturally produces a hormone called Glucagon – like – peptide (GLP-1) which regulates hunger and in turn appetite. Saxenda® is 97% similar to native GLP-1 and works by regulating your appetite which in turn leads to eating fewer calories and weight loss.Saxenda® increases feelings of satiety and decreases hunger.
As a result of its mechanism of action, patients taking Saxenda® feel satisfied and eat less food, leading to weight loss.
This is not a stimulant so you will not experience rush feelings which may come with other weight loss treatments you have tried.
