NAD+

NAD+

There is a chemical in your body called NAD+. This chemical is called adenine dinucleotide. Bacteria and other single-cell organisms aren’t the only ones that use NAD+. Primates, for example, have a lot of cells, but they also use a lot of other molecules. If we didn’t have NAD+, we’d be on the fast track to death. The molecule is an important part of the work of the cells that make energy, called mitochondria. When we eat food, NAD+ helps us turn it into energy. It also plays a big role in keeping our DNA in good shape and making sure our cells work properly, which helps us stay young and healthy.

Benefits of
NAD+

NAD+ acts like a shuttle bus, moving electrons from one molecule to another inside cells to do all kinds of things. With its molecular counterpart, NADH, this important molecule plays a role in a number of metabolic reactions that help our cells get their energy. Without enough NAD+, our cells wouldn’t be able to make enough energy to live and do their jobs. NAD+ also plays a role in regulating our circadian rhythm, which controls our body’s sleep and wake cycles.
 

NAD+ is important for organisms to keep their mitochondria and genes in check as they get older. Even so, the level of NAD+ in our bodies drops a lot as we age. The more we get older, the less NAD+ we have, so we lose it. People who are 50 “have about half the level they had when they were 20,” says David Sinclair, a professor at Harvard.

In studies, it has been found that a decrease in the molecule is linked to age-related diseases like accelerated aging, metabolic disorders, heart disease, and neurodegeneration. Low levels of NAD+ are linked to age-related disease because the body doesn’t work as well. But replenishing NAD+ levels has shown promising results in animal models when it comes to reversing age-related diseases, increasing lifespan, and improving healthspan.
