Out with the celebrity semaglutide hype: Embrace a balanced approach to lasting weight loss

Jinfiniti’s NAD scientist warns against semaglutide weight loss hype, suggests holistic approach.

People obsessed with body image are overwhelmed by images of Kardashian glutes and fat-burning posts by top influencers. Social media and the Internet are filled with promises of quick weight loss by injecting Semaglutide.

At the 2022 Met Gala, Kim Kardashian’s rapid and dramatic weight loss coincided with the global surge in interest. Off-label use of these antidiabetic drugs, including Ozempic, Wegovy and Rybelsus, has skyrocketed since then.

Dr Jin-Xiong She, Chief Science Officer at Jinfiniti Precision Medicine, a renowned diabetes researcher and genomics expert, is concerned. He emphasizes that there is a limited understanding of Semaglutide’s long-term effects, including the potential risks of pancreas disease, rebound weight loss, and metabolic imbalances.

“What perplexes me the most is the willingness of people to embrace popular, celebrity-endorsed trends that may jeopardize their long-term health,” says Dr She. Concerned about Americans’ overall well-being, he left academia to focus on extending people’s healthspan. His philosophy, the “8 Pillars of Tao,” emphasizes balance and holistic measures [1].

In search of a safe, easily accessible, and effective foundational supplement, he was driven by simplicity. His extensive research led him to develop a proprietary formula that optimizes NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), a naturally occurring substance that declines as we age.

“NAD optimization within the body’s cells provides energy, improves sleep, and enhances mental focus,” explains the professor. “Ironically, NAD offers the same benefits that support healthy weight loss. More importantly, it strengthens the body and improves cellular function, potentially leading to a longer and healthier life.”

As an alternative to prescription Semaglutide, Jinfiniti Precision Medicine suggests using NAD supplements to help achieve weight loss safely. Dr She explains, “I am a science-driven, data-focused researcher. My passion is helping people extend their healthspan. Above all, safety must be stressed when embarking on any program.”

According to GoodRx Health, Semaglutide has side effects ranging from mild to severe [2]. Dr She, with his background as a diabetes expert, is quick to admit that, when adequately prescribed as a legitimate health solution, these drugs can be life savers.

“I do not object categorically to their usage by any means. My concern is for those who jump on the bandwagon for the wrong reasons,” he admits.

  • 15 grams of pure NAD+ powder per serving.
  • Promotes enhanced energy, appetite regulation, and metabolic support.
  • Free from common allergens such as dairy, egg, soy, gluten, and wheat.

Quick fixes will always appeal to some, regardless of potential side effects. Dr She acknowledges that his “8 Pillars of Tao” philosophy and the simple optimization of NAD within cells will not interest those looking for potentially dangerous shortcuts. As a result, those who are on a longevity path and think long-term will appreciate Jinfiniti’s work.

“I don’t think anyone would call it a success if, by achieving their weight loss goals, they ruined their health in the process,” says She.

NAD deficiency is associated with and may contribute to, obesity and metabolic diseases. 

Jinfiniti has customers who have reported weight loss of up to 30 pounds just by taking their Accuri® Vitality Boost supplement, which is guaranteed to increase NAD levels. NAD optimization improves metabolism and energy, and when combined with exercise and caloric restriction, it enhances any weight loss program.

Dr She is available to discuss the perils of short-term gratification and the benefits of scientifically sound and safe approaches. He’s enthusiastic about exploring ways people can quickly and safely incorporate the “8 Pillars of Tao” philosophy to extend their healthspan and experience a more vital life.

In summary, the increasing popularity of Semaglutide for weight loss raises concerns about serious health risks from off-label use. Dr She underscores potential risks and advocates for a balanced and holistic approach, focusing on NAD optimization and the “8 Pillars of Tao” principles to promote healthspan extension [3].
