How does boots saxenda work?
Saxenda contains the ingredient Liraglutide. This works in the same way as a natural substance found in the body called GLP-1, which helps to regulate blood sugar after eating. By mimicking this hormone, Saxenda helps the brain to acknowledge that the body is full after we’ve eaten less food (consuming less calories) than we normally would. Essentially, Saxenda can help you to reduce the number of calories you eat which reduces your body weight as a result.
How are Saxenda Weight Loss Injections used?
A pen will last approximately six days, depending on what your per-day dose is. Between uses, store your pen in a refrigerator.
