BENEFITS OF NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide)
What is Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is an essential coenzyme that plays a role in many vital processes, including energy production and DNA repair. We are all born with 100% NAD+, which depletes with age slowing down healing and increasing aging.
It’s also known as vitamin B3, niacin or nicotinic acid and is in many foods such as meat, fish and dairy products. It can also be taken as a supplement to improve your health.
The Benefits of NAD
NAD+ is a coenzyme that is essential in energy production and metabolism. It’s also known as a “vitamin” because it’s required for many different processes in the body, but you can’t get it from food. NAD+ is found in every cell of your body, where it helps convert food into energy by interacting with other enzymes involved with metabolism.
NAD+ has been shown to improve overall health by supporting healthy brain function, energy levels, cell healing and rebuilding.
The Role of NAD+ in Aging
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an essential coenzyme in the body that plays a role in many functions, including metabolism and gene expression. It is found in every body cell and is especially important for maintaining youthful cellular function.
NAD+ levels decline with age, but this can be slowed down by eating foods rich in B vitamins like niacin (vitamin B3), riboflavin (vitamin B2), pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6) and folic acid.
Research on NAD+
NAD+ is also known to play a role in energy production. Studies have shown that NAD+ levels are lower in people with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, associated with poor glucose control and high blood pressure.
The benefits of NAD+ on brain function are another area of interest for researchers. One study found that taking nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN), a form of vitamin B3 converted into NAD, improved memory performance in mice by boosting their ability to learn new tasks. Other studies have linked low levels of this compound with dementia, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and even schizophrenia.
How to Increase NAD+ Levels
To increase your NAD+ levels, you can:
- Eat more foods that are rich in the coenzyme. Foods such as broccoli, spinach and avocado are good sources of NAD. You can also take a supplement that contains it.
- Exercise regularly to increase your body’s ability to produce it independently. Regular exercise has increased the production of enzymes responsible for synthesizing this compound within cells (NAD+ synthesis).
NAD+ is a coenzyme that plays an essential role in maintaining healthy cells. It helps to convert food into energy, supports brain function and protects against oxidative stress.
The research on NAD+ has shown that this nutrient can be beneficial for:
- Heart health
- Brain Health
- Anti-aging effects (including reduced signs of aging)
