The Fountain of Youth has been the Anti-Aging holy grail of fiction for centuries, though the elusive spring remains the stuff of legends to this day. However, there is a big new player in the medical and anti-aging worlds that has been scientifically proven to support cognitive and physical wellness while also providing regenerative effects at the cellular level to improve overall health and reduce the rate of aging.
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, NAD+ for short, is a coenzyme in the body that provides such a powerful effect on the health of all cells in the body, researchers have admirably nicknamed it the modern world’s Fountain of Youth.
NAD+ is an organic molecule produced by the body called a coenzyme. It is one of the most essential substances needed by every cell in the body because it’s responsible for providing fuel, in the form of usable energy, to the main power source of all cells, the Mitochondria. Without the required amount of energy, the Mitochondria is unable to maintain the cell’s health and ability to perform its intended functions.
Without enough NAD+, the Mitochondria is also unable to repair any damaged DNA within it, which can contribute to genetic mutations, death of the cell, and the development of genetic diseases and cancers.
This coenzyme is essentially responsible for maintaining the optimal health and functioning of every single tissue structure and organ system that make up the body, at their most basic level: the trillions of cells they are composed of.
Our bodies produce NAD+ naturally by synthesizing Niacin (vitamin B3) precursors to form the crucial coenzyme. As with most substances produced by the body, NAD+ production can be negatively impacted by various internal and external factors.
You can make certain lifestyle adjustments that will reduce the negative effects of some of the factors we discussed earlier.
For example: change your diet and focus on eating natural whole foods that are free of preservatives and dyes will increase your Niacin intake. Increase the amount of physical activity and exercise you get each day, a simple walk multiple times a week can be enough for some people. Limit your sun exposure and maintain a consistent sleep schedule with a minimum of 7 full hours a night.
These lifestyle modifications can be helpful but can take time to improve on the body’s natural NAD+ production and often aren’t able to produce a significant improvement since the body is still being affected by other uncontrollable factors.
The best way to increase NAD+ in the body and slow down the clock on aging is by supplementing with an oral supplement, subcutaneous injection, or IV therapy. These forms are not only the fastest ways of increasing levels, but they also provide a substantially larger amount of ready-to-use NAD+ so the body can utilize it quickly. These supplementary forms provide the fastest and most impressive results.
The best way to figure out which form and how much of it is best for you is by talking to one of our experienced professionals about your current symptoms and health goals. We will help you navigate the world of NAD+ and Anti-Aging and help you decide whether or not you need NAD+, and if so, how much you need.
