What is NAD+?

Why is NAD+ important? NAD+, also known as nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is found in every single cell of your body. NAD+ is an essential coenzyme. It works to assist cellular mitochondria, allowing them to properly function.

NAD+ plus also plays another important role. It works to convert the food we eat into energy. Therefore, decreased levels of NAD+ will not only impact overall health on every level, but could potentially also impact your metabolism and how energetic you feel.

As we age, our NAD+ levels decrease. This results in lowering energy levels in each and every cell, as well as mitochondria dysfunction.

This is a condition that no one wants. Mitochondia dysfunction directly expedites the aging process. it also contributes to, or facilitates, a myriad of diseases.

NAD+ deficiencies also contribute to the shortening of telomere length and health. Telomere shortening contributes directly to longevity, and the process of aging. This is a condition you want to hinder in any possible way.

The Importance of NAD+ Regulation

  • Bolster telomere length
  • Improve cellular energy production
  • Fight off disease
  • Contribute to longevity

Niagen® is a potent natural compound that works to directly assist with NAD+ production. Niagen® is a unique form of vitamin B3. It is also known as nicotinamide riboside. It works as a precursor to NAD+. Supplementation with NAD+ helps to increase NAD+ levels in the human body.

Per Vitam's Ceragen™ contains Niagen®, along with Cera-Q: an exciting new natural compound and extract that assist with memory enhancement and cognitive function.
