What is NAD+?
NAD stands for Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD + is a coenzyme of Niacin (Vitamin B3) which takes part in over one hundred metabolic functions of our cells. Its main function is energy production, which is crucial for normal cellular functioning and optimal well-being.
NAD + is also a cofactor of key enzymes responsible for longevity called sirtuins – SIRT1 & SIRT3. These enzymes are essential for longevity by controlling the gene expression of our cells. SIRT enzymes switch off genes that promote aging and inflammation. NAD levels progressively decline with age.
