Does Semaglutide have an impact on non-diabetic individuals with overweight or obesity?

Unlocking Cardiovascular Benefits: Semaglutide's Impact on Non-Diabetic Individuals with Overweight or Obesity

In a groundbreaking study known as the SELECT Trial, researchers, led by Michael Lincoff, Kirstine Brown-Frandsen, and Helen M Colhoun, delved into the potential cardiovascular benefits of semaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist.

Unlike previous investigations that focused on diabetic patients, this trial set out to unravel the impact of once-weekly subcutaneous semaglutide at a dosage of 2.4 mg on individuals aged 45 or older, with a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or greater and preexisting cardiovascular disease but no history of diabetes.

The findings were striking, revealing a substantial 20% reduction in the primary cardiovascular endpoint – a composite of cardiovascular death, nonfatal myocardial infarction, or nonfatal stroke – in the semaglutide group compared to the placebo group over a mean follow-up of 39.8 months.

This breakthrough discovery may reshape cardiovascular risk management strategies, especially for non-diabetic individuals grappling with overweight or obesity and preexisting cardiovascular conditions.

However, it is essential to tread cautiously, considering the higher incidence of adverse events leading to permanent discontinuation of the trial product in the semaglutide group compared to the placebo group (16.6% vs. 8.2%).

While these results are promising, the study's safety considerations underline the need for further research to comprehensively understand the long-term implications of semaglutide in this context.

The SELECT Trial, funded by Novo Nordisk (ClinicalTrials.gov number, NCT03574597), marks a pivotal step forward in uncovering new avenues for cardiovascular risk reduction beyond the diabetic spectrum.

Get hair as thick as a shampoo commercial

A lot of people ask me, “How can I make my hair thick again?”

The answer is it’s not about some “miracle” hair product; it has to do with nutrition and hormones!

Anyone who’s been pregnant remembers how thick hair was! That is because progesterone and estrogen were elevated and stayed consistent for 9 months.

Hair is affected by many things—hormones, nutrition, stress & genetics. We can’t completely change  our genes…yet.

But we CAN tackle nutrition and balance our hormones.

The Hormone Side

There are 3 phases of hair growth; Anagen (growth phase), catagen (transitional phase), and telogen (resting phase).

So if after you gave birth, there was a frightening moment when your hair started falling out…really, it was just your hair going into a different phase!

In the Anagen/growth phase, your hair needs balanced hormones to grow properly. So hair loss and thinning can occur when this growth cycle is disrupted. That means if you had a fever or restrictive diet, you could experience a hair loss 6 weeks later.

In this phase, your hair needs balanced hormones—enough progesterone and estrogen, PLUS the right nutrition.

I created a supplement for balancing hormones—it’s called Essential Female Boost and it gives your body everything it needs to support all your hormones in a balanced way! It’s a great overall hormone balancer and the first place that I recommend for women to start.

How Do We Get The Right Nutrition?

People think we don’t have malnourishment in western world because we’re not emaciated. But it’s not a caloric nutrient, it’s about nutrients and nourishment!

There are two types of nutrients: micronutrients & macronutrients.

Vitamins and minerals are the micronutrients (the best kind are from plants!), while macronutrients come from proteins, carbs, and fats.

TIP: The Rainbow Shortcut: When shopping for the most micronutrients, look for produce that is brightly colored all the way through, like a kiwi or purple potatoes. They have more micronutrients than things like white potatoes and apples.

Out of all the micronutrients that nourish hair, we are learning that biotin and zinc are among the forerunners.

Getting the right micronutrients is the first step to hormone balance and hair that grows for days.

Here’s to healthy, shiny, luxurious hair that can rival any shampoo commercial, ladies!
