NAD+ Boosters: How They Slow Aging

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+, is a cofactor for multiple physiological processes in the body. NAD+ can be synthesized in the body in the NAD+ salvage pathway, or from two of its precursors, nicotinamide mononucleotide and nicotinamide riboside, often referred to as NAD+ “boosters.” Boosting levels of NAD+ has been shown to improve lifespan and healthspan in animal models of premature aging and in humans. In this clip, Dr. David Sinclair describes the NAD+ salvage pathway and how boosting cellular NAD+ levels may be beneficial in slowing aging.
