Coenzyme Supplement Breakthrough

Nov 07, 2019 11:17AM ● By Toni Conover

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme found in all living cells, and it's required for the fundamental biological processes that make life possible. It is essential for optimal brain health and ATP (energy) production, as well as DNA repair.  

David Sinclair, co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School, says, “NAD+ is the closest we’ve gotten to a fountain of youth. It’s one of the most important molecules for life to exist, and without it, you’re dead in 30 seconds.”

Science has proven that as we age, the levels of NAD within the human body decline substantially. This decline leaves us at greater risk for neural and muscular degeneration, a decline in cardiometabolic health and capacity for cellular repair and resiliency.

Telltale signs of NAD deficiency are brain fog, poor memory recall, decreased energy, lack of motivation, trouble focusing and poor sleep. Benefits of NAD supplementation include anti-aging, energy production, sports performance and addiction recovery.

Repair largely occurs during sleep. Lack of proper sleep makes us feel groggy and tired, and could even compromise our overall health, leaving us susceptible to disease.
