What You MUST Know About NAD

October 03, 2023

NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is one of the most ABUNDANT molecules in the human body… and one of the MOST important! We would cease to exist without it. 

NAD+ is a carrier molecule that is REQUIRED to PRODUCE ATP in every tissue of the body- to give us ENERGY and ensure those tissues function properly (brain, muscle tissue, immune cells). It acts as a cofactor for enzymes like PARPs, which support DNA repair, and SIRTUINS which are involved with longevity.

NAD+ levels drop with:
  • Age
  • DNA Damage
  • Alcohol Metabolism
  • Inflammation
  • Immune Activation
Which can then lead to:
  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction
  • Glucose Intolerance and insulin insensitivity
  • Infection susceptibility
  • Neurodegenerative conditions
  • Decreased autophagy and cellular senescence (zombie cells)
  • Epigenetic changes
NAD+ plays a critical role in aging! By age 50, one may have only HALF the NAD+ they did in youth. By 80, levels drop to between 1-10% of levels expressed in youth. Replenishing the decline in NAD+ boosts cellular processes to support healthy aging! 

Fasting, caloric restriction, and exercise can boost NAD+, but one of the best daily approaches is to support with a liposomal NMN supplement. 

NAD+ Gold: NMN and TMG.  TMG is a methyl donor that facilitates the activity of NAD+.

NAD+ Platinum: NMN, sirtuin activators quercetin and resveratrol, TMG and B vitamins.

Want to fast track your way to greater ENERGY? Combine NAD Gold/Platinum with CoQ10 (essential to producing ATP, the universal energy currency of our cells) and  Active H2 + Chromax (cardiometabolic regulator).
