Why NAD is so important for health and longevity?

The biology of aging starts at the cellular level.

NAD (short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is as essential a component of the individual cell as water. If it is absent the cell will die.

Each cell of our body has a nucleus and an external cell membrane. Outside the nucleus and within the cell membrane is a fluid called cytoplasm, and within the cytoplasm swims, amongst other organelles, these mitochondria (plural for mitochondrion). The mitochondria are responsible for the various activities of the cell.

NAD is the fuel that activates the cell powerhouses called mitochondria through the sirtuin group of enzymes. It plays a part in all fundamental biological processes. In short it is the longevity activator.

Levels of NAD drop as we age, in all cells and tissues of the body. By the time we are middle aged we have only 50% of NAD compared to adolescence, and it drops to about 20% at 80 years old . At this age we have much less energy to do the daily activities of living.NAD is an important indicator of intracellular energy. It is a Co factor present in all cells and plays a crucial role in all fundamental biological processes. It helps to:

  • Increase DNA damage repair.
  • Improve cognitive function.
  • Boost oxidative stress resistance.
  • Restore youthfulness and energy levels.
  • Reduce inflammation.

With NAD levels restored you get the Longevity Dividend!
