Published research has shown that NR is perhaps the most effective precursor to boost the co-enzyme NAD+ in the cell.
As organisms age, NAD+ levels drop, which leads to a decrease in mitochondrial health; this in turn leads to age-related health issues.
Key to mitochondrial function is the maintenance of sufficient levels of NAD+, which is used to generate energy efficiently and allows overall mitochondria function, such as signaling, immune regulation and cell death, to proceed properly.
The study further showed that a reduction in NAD+ levels is responsible for this disruption.
The most effective way to boost NAD+ levels in the body is through a newly discovered form of vitamin B3 called nicotinamide riboside.
What makes this patented form of vitamin B3 so unique is its ability to directly convert into NAD+.
NAD+ is the term used in the scientific literature to describe a cellular compound called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide.
Prominent universities have been investigating NAD+ as a potential therapy for age-related degenerative disease.
It has long been known that NAD+ plays an important role in transferring energy released from glucose and fatty acids to the mitochondria so that it can be converted into cellular energy (2,9).
NAD+ is an essential cofactor of key enzymes responsible for longevity called sirtuins (5,12,13).
However, there are only two pathways involved in producing NAD+ in the tuberculosis bacterium, and both depend on the activity of NAD+ synthetase to obtain NAD+.
We are optimistic about the potential for developing new drugs that will effectively target this enzyme in TB and minimize side effects to humans, since we have NAD+ biosynthetic pathways that are independent of the NAD+ synthetase activity," Gerratana said.
