Top Benefits of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)
In recent years, researchers have explored minerals, hormones, vitamins, and proteins with hopes of discovering the secret to a healthy life and that elusive “fountain of youth”. Today, experts may have found just that with a cellular compound called Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+ for short).
What is Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide is an important coenzyme found in all human cells. It plays an essential role in the chemical processes cells use for energy production.
But how does it really work? Most of us are familiar with oxidative phosphorylation, which is also known as cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is how our cells produce energy through mitochondria via the electron transport chain and ATP.
Mitochondria is known as the powerhouse of the cell and it’s where the cell produces energy. As one of its functions it turns adenosine diphosphate into adenosine triphosphate. This usually happens in the electron transport chain and requires the proper amount of electrons. But where do mitochondria get the electrons? It’s from nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.
Some Benefits of NAD+
Since NADH is responsible for producing a high level of energy, it has a multitude of benefits including:
- Reduces the Signs of Aging
Poly ADP ribose polymerase and sirtuins are enzymes that require NADH to properly function. SIRT enzymes stimulate a dozen processes that can help control and even reverse aging. For example, not only does it regulate blood sugar and fat storage, but it also offers anti-inflammatory effects. PARP, on the other hand, as one of its functions, repairs damaged DNA. Without enough poly ADP ribose polymerase, the increase in damaged DNA can lead to cell mutation, cancer, and even death.
As you age, the amount of NAD+ decreases and can lead to a reduction in the aforementioned enzymes which can dramatically speed up the signs aging.
- Decreases the Risk of Sunburn and Skin Cancer
Anytime you go out, especially during very sunny days, you are exposed to high levels of UVA and UVB rays. Without applying sun creams, too much exposure can cause irritating sunburns and skin cancer.
Both of these skin issues start out as cell damage. A study conducted by the University of Arizona showed that NAD+ is crucial to human skin cells. and can help reduce sun sensitivity.
- Boosts Metabolism and Thyroid Hormones
NAD+ also controls metabolism which is related to thyroid hormone production and other processes. Adequate amounts of NADH boosts thyroid levels and metabolism thereby promoting weight loss, energy, and a strong immune system.
- Strengthens Brain Function
The brain can perform thousand trillion operations every second. Such processing power requires a massive amount of energy and as you guessed it this ultimately comes from mitochondria. The brain must have a good number of mitochondria to function properly. Subsequently high levels of NAD+ may help boost cognitive function. It also leads to strong concentration and enhanced cognition
With such amazing benefits its no wonder NAD+ is the hot new item taking the supplement market by storm!
