What is NAD? It stands for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide and it’s a naturally occurring super coenzyme important in chemical reactions within the mitochondria or “the powerhouse” of each and every cell in our bodies. It should stand for Need Another Dose! This thing is great!!
NAD’s main function is to promote the production of energy in our cells. In humans, NAD levels naturally decrease with age, poor diet, alcohol consumption, lack of sleep, lack of exercise and viral infections. By increasing your level of circulating NAD, you can fight the aging process of each and every cell and system.
NAD also plays a key role in protecting brain cells. It enhances production of neurotransmitters, which can improve memory, concentration and mood. This is why increasing NAD levels improves mental fog and may potentially help prevent or even reverse age-related changes in the brain that lead to Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease.
NAD is known to replicate, protect and repair cells. This can decrease cancer risk by protecting against DNA damage and oxidative stress which lead to cancer development.
NAD is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. It improves vascular endothelial injury, leading to increased elasticity which can help lower blood pressure and risk of cardiovascular disease. It may also reverse insulin resistance and quickly establishes blood sugar regulation.
NAD promotes healthy muscle aging by improving muscle function, strength and endurance. It may also promote faster healing after surgery or injury.
This powerful supplement can be taken orally but absorption is not guaranteed. The only way to guarantee 100% effectiveness is to have it given intravenously. Since it makes physiologic changes quickly, the dose is given over a 2 or 4 hour infusion to prevent rare and transient side effects.
