What is GLP-1?

Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a hormone produced in the small intestine, specifically in the lining of the intestine. GLP-1 serves several important functions in the body, particularly in the regulation of blood sugar (glucose) levels and in the digestive process. Here are some key purposes of the hormone GLP-1:

  1. Insulin Release: One of the primary functions of GLP-1 is to stimulate the release of insulin from the pancreas. Insulin is crucial for the uptake of glucose by cells, leading to a decrease in blood sugar levels.
  2. Inhibition of Glucagon: GLP-1 inhibits the release of glucagon, another hormone produced by the pancreas. Glucagon typically acts to raise blood sugar levels by promoting the release of glucose from the liver. Inhibiting glucagon helps prevent excessive glucose production.
  3. Slowing of Gastric Emptying: GLP-1 slows down the emptying of the stomach, leading to a more gradual release of nutrients into the bloodstream. This helps regulate postprandial (post-meal) blood sugar levels.
  4. Appetite Regulation: GLP-1 has been shown to have effects on appetite regulation. It can promote a feeling of fullness (satiety) and contribute to reduced food intake, aiding in weight management.

How do GLP-1 Agonist drugs like Ozempic work?


GLP-1 RAs, or Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 Receptor Agonists, are a class of medications used to treat type 2 diabetes. They work by mimicking the actions of the natural hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which is released from the intestine in response to food intake. GLP-1 has several effects on the body that help regulate blood sugar levels. Here's how GLP-1 RAs work:

  1. Stimulation of Insulin Release: GLP-1 RAs enhance the release of insulin from the pancreas in response to glucose (sugar) intake. Insulin is a hormone that helps cells take up glucose from the bloodstream, reducing blood sugar levels.
  2. Inhibition of Glucagon Release: GLP-1 RAs suppress the release of glucagon, another pancreatic hormone. Glucagon typically increases blood sugar levels by promoting the release of glucose from the liver. Inhibiting glucagon helps prevent excessive glucose production.
  3. Slowing of Gastric Emptying: GLP-1 RAs slow down the emptying of the stomach, leading to a more gradual release of nutrients into the bloodstream. This helps reduce post-meal spikes in blood sugar.
  4. Increased Sensation of Fullness: GLP-1 RAs promote a feeling of fullness or satiety, which can contribute to weight loss or weight management.
  5. Suppression of Appetite: Some GLP-1 RAs have been shown to have appetite-suppressing effects, further supporting weight loss.




How does AllyMack work?


Unlike the pharma drugs that inject a synthetic GLP-1 recreation into your body, AllyMack effectively promotes the body’s own natural production.  The result is more comfortable and sustainable weight loss support.
