Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD), is an essential ingredient in metabolic process and a micronutrient produced by the body that is essential for healthy mitochondria. Mitochondria are organelles within each cell that produce energy. Simply put, if the mitochondria are not functioning properly the cell loses energy, and by extension we lose energy as well.
The amount of NAD produced by the body gradually declines as we age. David Sinclair PhD from Harvard University (author of the book; “Why we age and why we don’t have to”) has identified NAD as a critical substrate that is capable of reversing some of the symptoms of aging.
The Ultimate Anti-Aging Support! NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an essential part of mitochondrial support.
As we age, diminishing levels of NAD are associated with mitochondrial deterioration. Decaying of mitochondria is a key driver of the aging process.
When NAD levels decline with age, it can result in big problems for your nervous, muscular, and cardio-metabolic systems.
WHY DO NAD LEVELS DECLINE?
NAD levels also decline due to stress and viruses. Addiction, Anxiety, and PTSD can also deplete your NAD levels.
In addition to the natural decay of mitochondria that occurs with aging, there are some individuals who are believed to be suffering from genetically inherited “NAD Energy Deficiency Syndrome.” This syndrome is characterized by low energy states and chronic fatigue and may predispose individuals to compulsive/addictive forms of behavior. This means slower cell repair.
When you supplement your NAD levels you can:
- repair your DNA
- protect your brain cells from damage
- reduce your inflammation
- fight the oxidative stress that comes with aging
Who is NAD for?
- Those with anxiety
- Those who want to get over burnout/fatigue
- Those who want to combat aging
- Those who wish to stop being addicted to drugs and/or alcohol
- Those looking for their highest possible athletic performance.
Nobel winners have joined the chorus of those pointing to preserving mitochondria as one of the keys to delay aging. NAD is essential to healthy mitochondrial function. Mitochondrial function is essential for youthful energy and good health.
