Is NAD+ the Anti-aging Miracle Pill?

Scientists, rich people, and many ‘ordinary’ people have been searching for years for a way to stop or even reverse the effects of aging. While there have been many suggestions along the way, none have stood the test of time.

You may not have heard of NAD+ therapy, but you will. It has been hailed as an anti-aging miracle, but is it really as good as it claims?

What Is NAD+ Therapy?

NAD, or to give it it’s full name, Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is in every cell of your body. In fact, it is in every cell of all living things. It is actually known as a coenzyme because it is a critical component for many chemical processes involving enzymes.

One particularly useful function is its role in the creation of energy. In effect, it collects an electron from one cell and delivers it to another. In the process, it changes the NAD+ to NADH, as it goes into the new cell it is reconverted to NAD+.

It may seem a pointless exercise, but this reshuffling of electrons creates energy, keeping your cells .

But, NAD+ doesn’t just help to create energy in your body. It’s also very effective at making sirtuin proteins work properly. These proteins protect your cells from age-related decline. In short, the sirtuin helps prevent the end caps of your DNA strands from unraveling

NAD+ – The Stated Benefits

  • Reduces the effects of aging
  • Lowers stress levels and protects your brain cells
  • Improves cognitive function
  • Helps your body to repair DNA
  • Regulates your circadian cycle

In fact, these are more than just stated benefits; there is scientific research that backs up these claims. NAD+ therapy has the potential to boost your energy levels and improve the length of your life. Perhaps it really is the anti-aging miracle we’ve all been looking for.

How To Take It

It is possible to take a capsule which contains an NAD+ supplement. However, this is a generalized way to take NAD+.

A . A qualified doctor will assess your needs, run tests, and decide the right dose and mixture of NAD+ for you. This will ensure you have the very best NAD+ supplement and the most positive effects.

There are other ways to boost your NAD+ levels but you won’t be able to regulate the production of this powerful substance:

  • High fat/low carb diet

This makes your body burn fat for energy instead of glucose which actually increases your NAD+ levels.

  • Intermittent Fasting

Simply restricting your eating will boost NAD+ levels. But, the only approach that can be called healthy and sustainable is to do this intermittently. Two non-consecutive days a week is good.

Bottom Line

NAD+ is a great aid in reducing the effects of aging and helping you to look, as well as feel younger. It can be seen as a miracle pill to improve the quality of your life as you age, but it still needs to accompany a good diet and regular exercise.
