what is nad+
The Miracle Molecule
Discovered in 1906, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme found in each of our living cells. It has two forms: NAD+ and NADH. Simply put, NADH is a coenzyme “occupied” with electrons, and NAD+ is a coenzyme “ready and willing” to be put to use. NAD+ is the cornerstone to maintaining healthy internal organs and a healthy neurological system. Many people eat healthily and exercise regularly. Others may not find the time to do either.
Regardless of where you fall between these two spectrums, flooding your body with NAD+ can “bio-hack” your body into functioning better on a molecular level, and possibly safeguard you from future maladies.
NAD+ is the coenzyme of Niacin, also called Vitamin B3. It stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and is found in all living cells. NAD+ is essential to sustaining life. It protects us against factors such as chemical stress, inflammation, as well as mitochondrial and DNA damage.
NAD+ levels decline significantly with age. This then decreases the body’s ability to retain its youthful, healthy function. Studies have shown that by age 50, people have only 50% of the NAD+ they had in youth. By age 80, NAD+ levels drop to only 1–10 %. Deficiency of NAD+ may predispose us to accelerated aging, thereby increasing our risk of developing various diseases, such as neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and even cancer, among many others.
Restoring NAD+ is being viewed not only as a progressive tool to aid longevity but also to improve certain conditions, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, and many others. In addition, it has been successfully used for almost 20 years for drug and alcohol detoxification.
Researchers have been studying NAD+ since the early 1950s. Recently, in 2013, David Sinclair, PhD, a professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, headed a revolutionary study in the area of NAD+ when he took a group of mice and restored the mitochondria in their muscles to a youthful and healthier state. He injected the subjects with a molecule that boosted their levels of NAD+.
