NAD is important in DNA repair and telomere maintenance. Telomeres protect the vital information in our DNA. DNA makes up all of the cells in our body. Telomeres get shorter each time a cell copies itself, but the important DNA stays intact. Eventually, telomeres get too short to do their job, causing our cells to age and stop functioning properly.
NAD and NAD+ occur naturally in your body. They play a major role in the chemical process of generating energy.
NAD+ is probably the most important co-factor for improving mitochondrial function. Mitochondria are the cells powerhouse energy generator where macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats from food) are converted to energy-rich ATP molecules for the cell.
Due to its direct influence on the Mitochondria NAD+ helps keep cells maximally healthy and functioning
NAD helps the liver break down fats that are essential to provide energy for the body. It also helps create ATP, which is a major source of energy for cells. Boosting NAD+ may help manage a wide spectrum of diseases, ranging from diabetes to cancer.
NAD boosts the immune system due to the energy production role they play in the body
When NAD+ is given by IV (intravenous) or IM (intramuscularly), some research has shown it can improve mental clarity, alertness, concentration, and memory.
Moreover, NAD+ injections may improve athletic endurance and reverse the symptoms of chronic fatigue. NAD has a strong impact on cognitive and cardiovascular health. It has a growing usage in Age Management due to its role in DNA repair and telomere maintenance.
