What are Saxenda Slimming Injections?

Saxenda is a weight loss medicine that contains the active substance liraglutide. It’s similar to a natural occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that’s released from the intestine after a meal. Saxenda works by acting on receptors in the brain that control your appetite, causing you to feel fuller and less hungry. 

All too often, people who even have a lap band or bariatric surgery will eventually put the weight they lose back on. As Saxenda reduces your appetite, it enables you to stick to a diet with a controlled daily calorie intake with physical activity, and can help you to lose weight consistently. 

Our Saxenda Slimming Injections have also shown to be excellent at reducing high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
