A Google search for NAD+ revealed that the molecule is found in every cell of the body and that some scientists believe that boosting its production may be tied to better health and to the slowing down of the aging process.
NAD+ is believed to play important roles in longevity, aging, and diseases ranging from eurodegenerative disorders to cancer.
Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) is the most effective precursor to boost the co-enzyme NAD+ in the cell.
Published research has shown that NR is perhaps the most effective precursor to boost the co-enzyme NAD+ in the cell.
According to Ross Grant, PhD (Sydney Medical School/Adventist Hospital), "There is good rationale for potential synergy when NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is added to the high dose biotin.
The research shows NAD+ levels can be boosted through NAD+ precursor supplementation, reducing DNA damage and bringing cellular activity back to youthful levels.
"Boosting NAD+ after injury may prevent permanent nerve death," said Dr.
The Third Annual NAD Summit is a gathering for researchers and clinicians from across the globe to discuss the latest innovations and scientific discoveries related to elevating NAD+ levels in the body.
Nature Communications reported the results of the first clinical trial of nicotinamide riboside, a form of vitamin B3 known to boost NAD+ cell levels.
The researchers point out that NAD+ synthetase is responsible for making NAD+, a coenzyme found in all living cells that is involved in regulating many cellular processes and in reduction-oxidation metabolic reactions.
Published research confirms that NAD+ levels decline as we age (7,8) and represent a fundamental, systemic contributor of aging.
As NAD+ levels decline, mitochondrial function is impaired, resulting in fewer mitochondria surviving.
