A growing body of scientific research now suggests one of the best ways to combat ageing is to maintain high levels of NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide). It's a natural molecule found within every living cell of our bodies and we depend upon it to convert the nutrients from our food into the energy we need to survive.
Over recent years supplements containing precursor substances like NR and NMN have hit the market aiming to boost NAD+. In a prior article we discussed the limited ability of these precursors to boost NAD+ back to effective youthful levels, along with a scientific explanation for why this is so.
In outline, trying to boost NAD+ in mature cells with high doses of NR or NMN precursor is like trying to boost production in an old car factory. Trucking more raw steel through the factory gate will never increase the output of new cars when the machines are worn out, the production line is under staffed and most of the raw material is, quite literally, ‘leaking’ back out.
Scientific tests have demonstrated that bigger doses of NR or NMN precursor do not deliver significantly higher levels of NAD+, which is a disappointment (Trammell et al. 2016). To fix this problem Nuchido’s scientific team has pioneered a new approach to boosting NAD+ that doesn't need NR or NMN precursors to achieve compelling results.
