Ageing and mental decline
Cognitive decline is an unfortunate part of ageing. As we get older, our cells accumulate damage and in the brain, this can manifest itself in a range of ailments such as general brain fogginess or more specific diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or dementia.
NAD+ is a coenzyme that naturally occurs in our body that works to lessen the symptoms of these diseases by powering and restoring brain function. NAD+ increases brain function by keeping important cells healthy to ensure our brain ages well.
A coenzyme is a small molecule that binds to a protein molecule in order to activate an enzyme. Enzymes are responsible for over 5,000 different biochemical reactions throughout the body and NAD+ participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule.
Our levels of NAD+ naturally decrease as we age which means we don’t have enough to maintain the healthiest brain possible. However, taking NAD+ supplements boosts and maintains our levels of NAD+ to ensure we’ve got enough for healthy brain function and mental clarity.
NAD+ supplements are daily oral capsules that you can take like you would vitamins to keep your NAD+ levels elevated. Here at NADdirect, we have a range of different supplements that all contain NAD+ to help you achieve your life goals. If you’re looking to improve brain function and clarity we would suggest our Optima Max, which is a daily oral supplement developed by our research & development team and is based on the same formulation as NADclinic’s pioneering NAD+ IV protocol.
