Even if you’ve never heard of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD), your cells certainly have. That’s because this critical coenzyme is essential to the cellular energy reactions happening in the mitochondria – the powerhouse of the cells. While NAD is a catch-all term, the compound we are most interested in is NAD+, which is reduced to NADH through metabolic pathways that convert glucose into ATP – which is biochemical energy.
This process affects every organ in the body! Actually, over 500 enzymatic reactions in our body need NAD+. In every step of the way, NAD+ helps mend DNA damaged by toxins and radiation, maintain total-body health, and regulate cellular activity through the proper functionality of sirtuins. These protein enzymes are the “guardians of the genome” that support DNA repair and are key to cellular activity like antioxidant defense, metabolic function, and more.
NAD+ is essential for
The link between NAD and health was established nearly a century ago when Conrad Elvehjem discovered that pellagra (a disease causing diarrhea, dermatitis, and dementia) was caused by low niacin and resulted in low NAD+. Over time, our levels of NAD+ decrease. This decline in NAD+ levels is linked causally to several aging-associated diseases partially by allowing deteriorated and mutilated cells to accumulate, leading to neurodegenerative diseases, cognitive decline, cancer, metabolic disease, loss of muscle mass, and frailty. As a result, we not only experience decreased energy, but also have an increased risk of diseases like Alzheimer’s, diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
We can’t say for sure that NAD+ can extend your lifespan, but most scientists agree that it may extend your healthspan and offer
While NAD+ offers a range of internal benefits, the aesthetic benefits result in a noticeably younger appearance. On a cellular level, NAD+ supports the replenishment of new, healthy cells. In turn, your skin behaves as if it were years younger.
