What is NAD+? And Why is it important?

NAD+ stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, which is an active form of a coenzyme that plays a significant role in the chemical reactions within your cells. NAD+: 

  • Turns carbohydrates, fats, and proteins into usable energy (Krebs Cycle)
  • Regulates your body’s stress response
  • Repairs and synthesizes DNA
  • Regulates your circadian rhythms
  • Promotes stem cell production
  • As you age, your natural levels of NAD+ begin to decrease. If you add sickness, disease, or addiction to the mix, your NAD+ levels deplete more rapidly.
