Maximizing the Health Benefits

 
The final aspect of the Nuchido TIME+ formulation is designed to maximize the overall health benefits. That is why Nuchido TIME+ contains black pepper extract, vitamin C and zinc.

Increasing NAD+ Precursor Ingredients

Once the NAD+ production pathways have been restored and the waste of NAD+ has been limited, then adding in additional raw materials that the cell can use to manufacture NAD+ can be considered.

Reducing Consumption and Excretion of NAD+
 
The greater our understanding of age-related NAD+ decline the more it is becoming apparent that pumping more precursors (raw material) into the cell isn’t enough to fix the underlying problem. NAD+ declines not only because of a decrease in NAD+ production but also a huge increase in NAD+ consumption.

Enhancing the Salvage Pathway with Nuchido TIME+

For an NAD+ supplement to address the fundamental causes of NAD+ decline, it needs to act on the cell’s ability to make and recycle NAD+ and the primary source of this is via the salvage pathway.
