NAD+ is a type of molecule that helps with energy production in every cell of the body. It was discovered in the early 1900s during research into fermentation (which is a similar process to how our bodies generate energy) and since then, has been proven to support a number of biological processes, including ageing, performance and immunity.
NAD+ diminishes in our bodies with age and through certain lifestyle factors, declining by 50% at age 40. But maintaining levels is absolutely critical for optimised health, from mental performance, to physical metabolism, to neuroprotection and cardiovascular benefits. Put simply, NAD+ can help us to live well longer.
It all starts in our cells. Through a process called cellular respiration, our cells release chemical energy, which in turn fuels our biological processes. NAD+ is a coenzyme which helps break down the molecules in this process. According to research, low levels of NAD+ are at least one factor that causes age-related problems in our bodies. Of course, lifestyle can play a part in your levels of NAD+. Discover yours below.
NAD+ can help boost many aspects of our mental and physical selves, particularly ones associated with ageing. These include:
Mental health and wellbeing Focus, clarity and concentration Immunity, inflammation and cell regeneration Chronic fatigue, energy and metabolism (performance) Neuro and cardiovascular health Detox and withdrawal
Taking NAD+ supplements can help you maintain levels of NAD+ and benefit your brain and body.
