What is NAD+?
Nicotinamide adenine nucleotide (NAD+) controls hundreds of critical biological processes from energy production and cell survival. Indeed, every function of each organ in the body depends on NAD+ and oxygen utilization. NAD+ has been touted as the anti-aging molecule owing to research indicating optimal levels correlate to healthier and longer lives.
Could I benefit from more NAD+?
- Are you tired?
- Have you battled with chronic illness?
- Have you been chronically stressed?
NAD+ declines in the presence of (1) stress, (2) illness, (3) high toxin or viral load, and (4) with age. The consequence of low/declining levels of NAD+ is reduced function of cells and organs. A decline in NAD+ during aging is believed to be a major cause of disease and disability.
How can I increase my NAD+ levels?
Intranasal (link to NAD+ peptide section), injectable and intravenous NAD+ are aimed at raising NAD+ levels, thus promoting health and longevity. These routes of administration are effective at raising NAD+ as they are delivered directly to the bloodstream and avoid degradation in the intestinal tract.
