Found in virtually all living cells, NAD+ is essential to sustaining life. As we age, NAD+ levels decrease in our bodies. As this molecule is involved in many important biological processes, replenishing NAD+ levels can improve many elements of aging including age associated energy loss.
- Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide
- NAD+ is probably the most important co-factor for improving mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are intracellular organelles (a.k.a. “energy powerhouses”) where macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats from food) are converted to energy-rich ATP molecules for the cell. NAD helps the liver break down fats that are essential to provide energy for the body. It also helps create ATP, which is a major source of energy for cells. Boosting NAD+ may help manage a wide spectrum of diseases, ranging from diabetes to cancer.
