NAD: Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide - Co-Enzyme 1
A co-enzyme of Niacin that is in every living cell of your body
NAD is a biological rocket fuel that gives you energy
It is clear to see how important NAD-NADH is for the body as it is involved in every bodily function and catalyzes more than a thousand metabolic reactions in the organs and tissues.
NAD Increases energy in brain cells
The brain consumes about one-third of all the energy produced by the body.
NAD Increases energy in heart cells
NAD helps the body produce ATP, which is fuel for the heart to beat.
(The body is made up of ~100 trillion cells)
Other Key Functions of NAD
• Protects and repairs DNA, reducing DNA mutations which contribute to atherosclerosis, cancer, immunodeficiency, rheumatoid arthritis, and much more
• The “most powerful antioxidant” in the body according to Dr. Richard Passwater in his book NADH-The Energizing Coenzyme
• Lowers cholesterol
• Lowers blood pressure
• Strengthens the immune system
• Stimulates production of dopamine, serotonin, and noradrenaline, thereby improving moods
• Stimulates nitric oxide production, thereby improving blood flow in the body
Medical research has shown the following medical conditions to improve with NAD therapy:
• Chronic fatigue
• Muscle pain and weakness
• Joint pain and stiffness
• Alcohol and drug addiction
• Sleep disturbance
• Memory loss (forgetfulness)
• Attention deficit
• Fevers, sore throats and swollen
• Lymph glands
• Parkinson’s disease
Research has also shown that NAD can provide the following benefits in “healthy” people:
• Increased physical energy
• Improved mental performance
• Improved response to short term
• Sleep deprivation
• Reduce the effects of jet lag
• Enhance libido

NAD+ is a naturally occuring co-enzyme that has a central role in the metabolism and energy production of every single cell in the body.
NAD stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, which is the chemical term for a molecule that reacts with oxygen in the mitochondria in every cell of your body in order to create energy so you can move, breathe, pump blood, digest food, think, and generally, live your life. Lack of this essential cellular fuel is now recognized as a key feature of chronic fatigue, apathy, depression, anxiety, alcohol and drug addiction, weak immune system (infections and cancer), muscle pain and weakness, headaches, memory disturbance, sleep problems, focus and concentration defects and other chronic diseases. NAD deficiency may be an unrecognized epidemic of cellular disease.
