NAD+ helps convert food to energy and plays a Key role in maintaining DNA integrity ensuring proper cell function to protect our bodies from aging and disease“–Paul Ebeling

NAD+ is a coenzyme that is Key for basic function of the cell. A major function is in the energy-producing cycles in the mitochondria.

ATP is the basic energy currency of the cell.

NAD+ is reduced back to NADH in a process called oxidative phosphorylation. This process produces energy in the form of ATP. A certain amount of NAD+ is needed for the system to work, and adding more is not necessary. However, NAD+ and NADH have many more jobs, in and out of the mitochondria.

It is true that as animals age both mice, and humans have been studied — NAD+ levels tend to decrease. This seems to relate to increased destruction of NAD by the cell.

Raising NAD+ directly requires supplementation such as nicotinamide riboside, that will increase NAD+ levels when given orally. . Studies are ongoing, and nicotinamide riboside may be useful in treatment of some diseases.

Foods with NAD+ include:

  • Whole grains. Whole grains are rich in vitamin B3.
  • Milk. Cow’s milk is an excellent source of Nicotinamide riboside.
  • Fish. Sardines, salmons, and tuna are rich sources of NAD+.
  • Yeast. Nicotinamide riboside is also found in yeast.
  • Green Vegetables.
  • Mushrooms.

Fasting is Key

Fasting is practiced in many religions throughout the world. In addition to its spiritual benefits, it turns out that fasting is also beneficial for our health. Fasting, or reducing your calorie intake is an excellent method for indirectly boosting the body’s NAD levels. Fasting has been shown to increase the levels of NAD+ and surtuins; the proteins which have been found to slow the aging process. While fasting is effective in increasing NAD+ levels. Intermittent fasting or adopting a low carb-ketogenic eating plan may also provide positive results.

And Cut Down on Alcoholic Beverages

NAD is responsible for maintaining the overall metabolic processes of our body. Alcohol tends to interfere with these processes and reduce the efficacy of NAD. Therefore, avoid excessive intake of alcoholic drinks since they are also not good for your health. Also, No Junk Food!
