NAD+ IV is Now Recognized as the:
Cancer Support Molecule
Facts about NAD+:
- NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is an essential coenzyme that regulates cellular energy metabolism and mitochondrial function.
- Every cell in the body relies on NAD+ both to maintain normal energy supply and to protect the cell.
- NAD+ levels decline significantly as we age as well as being negatively affected by disease, stress and obesity.
- NAD+ is needed to combat oxidative stress and for control of inflammation.
- As NAD+ levels decline with age we are less able to repair cellular DNA. If we are unable to properly repair our DNA damage we are at risk for cancer and age-related loss of function.
- Supporting healthy levels of NAD+ has neuroprotective effects, guarding against age-related loss of brain function, including dementia, traumatic injury and stroke.
- Raising the level of NAD+ has been shown to increase metabolism, and may help prevent and treat obesity, fatty liver disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
- Research has shown that dwindling sirtuin activity is associated with more rapid aging-and that boosting sirtuin activity is protective, prolonging lifespan and guarding against disease.
- However, sirtuins require NAD+ to function. An ample and continuous supply of NAD+ is needed by the cell to keep operating normally.
- Maintaining a high level of NAD+ in the body is critical for maintaining health and functionality, for preventing and reversing disease, for energy and vitality, and for possibly extending life span.
