In the past several years the importance of optimal Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD+ has been confirmed by extensive research.
NAD+ is an essential cofactor in all living cells and involved in fundamental biological processes.
If NAD+ were shut off, we would live about 5 seconds.
NAD+ depletion is associated with the hallmarks of aging.
• Metabolic disorders, diabetes
• Neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s
• Cardiovascular disease, heart attacks, strokes
• General decline of energy and well-being.
Boosting NA+ may slow or even reverse aging and delay progression of age-related disease.
The good news is that we can boost NAD+ with precursor supplements or injected NAD+
The two oral supps that have been shown to boost NAD+ are.:
NR – Nicotinamide riboside
NMN – Nicotinamide mononucleotide
Although there is some controversy about which is better the predomi-nance of research is with NR.
It would be a good idea for you to take it.
NAD+ can be injected subcutaneously and prescribed for home use.
There are clinics giving intravenous NAD+ but it is a lengthy procedure and no advantage over other methods.
