WHAT IS IT? Nicotinamide Adenosine Dinucleotide or NAD is a molecule in the body that is essential for energy production in the cell’s mitochondria (the energy powerhouse of the cell and therefore your body).
WHAT DOES IT DO/WHY DO WE WANT TO DO IT?
NAD alternates between two forms NADH which is the inactive form and NAD+ which is the active form. Energy production in the mitochondria which pump out ATP ABSOLUTELY depends upon NADH being converted to NAD+.
The accumulation of NADH and depleted levels of NAD+ or a low ratio of NADH/NAD+ can create mitochondrial dysfunction which leads to cell death.
As we age this recycling of NADH to NAD+ slows down and we accumulate NADH and the cells run out of energy and finally die leading to increased chronic health issues, increased inflammation, chronic fatigue and auto-immune disorders as well as many age related pathologies.
WHAT CLINICAL BENEFIT DOES NAD+ THERAPY PROVIDE?
Restoring NAD+ reverses this process and allows cells to return to their full energy status, offering a way to undo mitochondrial damage. This has the benefits of reducing inflammation, fat mobilization, blood sugar regulation.
NAD+ therapy is beneficial for athletes as exercise depletes ATP levels which decreases NAD+. NAD+ treatment enables higher endurance levels and staves off the catabolic influence on lean mass.
Summarily, mitochondrial dysfunction leads to low NAD+ levels which then lead to low ATP levels causing fatigue both physically and mentaly. This also creates an inflammatory state and leaves us vulnerable to sickness and disease.
Mitochodrial dysfunction manifests in different ways. The dysfunction can be in cardiac cells, nerve cells, brain cells or any other cell. NAD+ supplementation is a systemic treatment and creates better cell energy function in every body system.
Summarily NAD+ provides these benefits:
- Boosts Metabolism/ helps to lose weight by mobilizing body fat
- Increased Energy/ Treatment for Chronic Fatigue
- Enables Healing and Reduces Body Pain
- Enhances recovery after athletic performance
- Increased Brain Energy and Function
- General Anti-Aging due to its influence on SIRT
