Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide

How NAD+ Can Treat Degenerative Diseases

More recently it has been found that NAD+ is also required as a substrate by enzymes that regulate the expression of genes involved in cell viability and aging and in repair of damaged DNA.

Vice News: Does NAD+ Really Work

NAD+ is popular among the “anti-aging community,” thanks to a Harvard Medical School study that found it rewound “aspects of age-related demise in mice.” It’s also supposedly good for: detoxing from alcohol and drugs, increasing energy and focus, reducing chronic fatigue, increasing your metabolism, and improving your cardiovascular health.

Scientific American Report: The Anti-Aging NAD Fad

Recent research suggests it may be possible to reverse mitochondrial decay with dietary supplements that increase cellular levels of a molecule called NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide). But caution is due…

Changes in Oxidative Damage, Inflammation and [NAD(H)] with Age

High levels of oxidative damage results in key cellular changes including a reduction in available nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), an essential molecule required for a number of vital cellular processes including DNA repair, immune signaling and epigenetic processing.

How NAD+ Affects Wistar Rats

The cofactor nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) has emerged as a key regulator of metabolism, stress resistance and longevity.

MIT: What Does NAD+ Do?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a ubiquitous biological molecule that participates in many metabolic reactions. Recent studies show that NAD also plays important roles in transcriptional regulation, longevity, calorie-restrictionmediated life-span extension and age-associated diseases.
