The safest, most effective therapies for optimal health!
by Ellen Landauer
NAD (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an energy 'currency' of every cell in your body. It is at the very basis of our life-force - deeper than DNA and mitochondria, and is required for supporting optimal mitochondrial and DNA health.
NAD fuels energy needed for ALL aspects of our physiological functioning and is essential for DNA repair.
LIST OF BENEFITS:
1 - NAD is required for every single physiological function in our body at every stage of life.
Every process in every cell in your body is dependent on it.
Sufficient NAD in every cell is a requirement for us to even remain alive!
2 - An abundance of NAD can help us to be physiologically more youthful, full of energy and emotionally more alive!
3 - It is ESSENTIAL for the absorption and utilization of amino acids, the building blocks of life.
A wide spectrum of amino acids (proteins) need NAD to fulfill their roles in ALL body processes including tissue building, healing, neurotransmitter production and detoxification. In essence, NAD is needed for us to get full benefit of all amino acids (protein building blocks) from both food and supplements!
4 - As a coenzyme in production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), it is central to energy metabolism. It is a key component of many metabolic pathways for amino acids, lipids and carbohydrates.
5 - It is vital to regulating and REPAIRING DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid).
6 - It is essential to the health and abundance of the mitochondria (tiny energy-producers in every cell).
WE NEED IT TO STAY YOUNGER! Lack of NAD is a HUGE factor in aging.
Too little of this molecule in the body is at the core of metabolic dysfunction (inability to produce enough energy). This compromises ALL body functions, tissue health, youthful vigor and emotional outlook. Ultimately, lack of NAD shortens life by damping down the body's ability to repair itself and sustain healthy physiological functioning.
What lowers NAD levels? ANY kind of stress (toxicity, emotional stress, injury, surgery and drug side effects, to name just a few). Aging alone is a factor in reduced NAD.

...decline in NAD+ levels is linked causally to numerous ageing-associated diseases, including cognitive decline, cancer, metabolic disease, sarcopenia and frailty. Many of these ageing-associated diseases can be slowed down and even reversed by restoring NAD+ levels. Therefore, targeting NAD+ metabolism has emerged as a potential therapeutic approach to ameliorate ageing-related disease, and extend the human healthspan and lifespan. (1)
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and its metabolites function as critical regulators to maintain physiologic processes, enabling the plastic cells to adapt to environmental changes including nutrient perturbation, genotoxic factors, circadian disorder, infection, inflammation and xenobiotics. These effects are mainly achieved by the driving effect of NAD+ on metabolic pathways as enzyme cofactors transferring hydrogen in oxidation-reduction reactions. (2)
NAD has been the subject of a vast amount of research.
The significance of NAD+ in addictive disorders stems from the work of Dr. Paul O’ Hollaren (1961) who claimed to have successfully utilised IV NAD+ for the prevention and treatment of over 104 cases of addiction to alcohol and other drugs of abuse, including heroin, opium extract, morphine, dihydromorphine, meperidine, codeine, cocaine, amphetamines, barbiturates and tranquilisers (3)
As you may know, our vitality or lack thereof has a major influence on our mood and outlook on life.
Among many other benefits, NAD is a critical component in fostering a healthy circadian rhythm - which in turn benefits our mood:
Organisms have developed internal clocks as a timekeeping mechanism to collaborate biological processes with the exogenous environmental and endogenous factors. NAD+ functions as a metabolic driver of circadian transcription via epigenetic mechanisms, transducing signals originated by environmental stimuli to the circadian clock. (4)
Our metabolic (energy producing) function is a big player in how happy we are.
Look at children; for the most part, they are happier and more energetic than grown-ups. Children have more NAD - but as we age, it declines.
ANY kind of stress may reduce the amount of NAD in our bodies, leading to lack of energy, enthusiasm and physical vitality..
At the root of ALL metabolic dysfunction is a lack of NAD/NADH balance.
Healthy young children and young adults have an abundance of Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD decline is very common as we get older.
It is wise to consider the possibility of replenishing your life force with NAD.
