Nicotinamide Riboside review /What is Nicotinamide Riboside (NR)?
Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is a pyridine-nucleoside form of vitamin B3, it is a combination of niacinamide and ribose, which is often found in milk, whey protein, and brewer’s yeast.
NR can increase levels of Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) levels in humans, while NAD is the source of most benefits within the cells and throughout the body.
What is Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+)
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+), a metabolite of Niacin (Vitamin B3), is found in every cell of all living organisms, it is essential to mitochondrial function and enables cells to convert both glucose and fatty acids to energy. NAD+ is involved in sustaining energy, neural health and healthy aging.
Our bodies can produce NAD+ from a variety of different elements, but as we age our levels of NAD+ drop significantly. “NAD+ levels tend to drop by as much as 50% as we get older”, according to Dr. David Agus a world leading Physician in Cancer treatment and a pioneer in Biomedical Research.
