“I want to enhance my focus and mental clarity. As well as boost energy, self awareness, my body's anti-aging defenses, and more”
NAD+, Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide,
is an essential compound found in every cell of our bodies. It plays a major function in maintaining our health, mentally and physically. Over time and for certain reasons NAD+ can be depleted. The depletion of NAD+ can effect our health and how the body functions. Supplementing with NAD+ can help to counteract many of the aging diseases. NAD+ has also been shown to help remove the physical dependence and need for narcotics and alcohol.
How it works:
- Energy: NAD+ plays a huge role in generating energy in our body by allowing for the transformation of energy from fatty acids and carbohydrates to the mitochondria. Mitochondria convert this energy into cellular energy which allows the body to perform all of its function. This, in turn, can give you more energy to live an energetic and enhanced life .
- Anti-aging: Studies have shown that sirtuins (proteins involved in prolonging life) need NAD+ to function.
- Nervous system/Mental Health: NAD+ also promotes communication between cells and acts as a neurotransmitter. It is needed to relay information from nerves to smooth muscles which is why it’s been effective in the treatment of many nervous system disorders and substance addiction (mainly narcotic and alcohol). It has been shown to enhance cognitive function in those with Alzheimers and Parkinsons disease.
- DNA repair: NAD+ promotes interaction between DNA repair proteins. It also has been shown to slow down DNA damage associated with radiation exposure and aging. (Harvard Study)
