Have you heard of NAD+?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a long name for something that is naturally occurring in your body. That's why most of us have heard about taking NAD+. But why?

NAD+ is in every cell of the human body? That' right, it's a vital part of life that declines as we age. NAD+ is classified as a coenzyme. A coenzyme is a substance that works with an enzyme to initiate or aid the function of the enzyme. So essentially NAD+ helps your body function correctly. Low level of NAD+ can result in many different health problems.

Low NAD+ levels have been linked to diabetes, heart disease, vascular dysfunction, ischemic brain injury, Alzheimer’s, and vision loss.

The benefits of NAD+ are:

  • Anti-aging

  • Increased energy

  • Improved cognition

  • Increased metabolism

  • Combats depression and anxiety

  • Increased cellular function

  • Repair damaged DNA

  • Increased glutathione levels (which neutralizes harmful substances in our body)

NAD+ acts as fuel for many key biological processes, such as:

  • Converting food into energy

  • Repairing damaged DNA

  • Fortifying cells’ defense systems

  • Setting your body’s internal clock or circadian rhythm

Supplementing NAD+ can be done through an IV infusion or by mouth. The results are usually more noticeable when using the IV route. Almost anytime a medication can bypass the digestive tract is a benefit. The levels in the body are higher quicker and results are felt sooner.

Other uses for NAD+ which are not fully understood, but have been used with success:

  • Drug dependency

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Pain management

  • Autoimmune disease

The only person who should avoid taking NAD+ are mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding. This is mainly due to the lack of research of the effects of NAD+ around childbirth.

When supplementing NAD+, any excess NAD+ or its metabolites are excreted in urine. This keeps the levels safe in most people.
