Promising research on health/lifespan benefits via NAD+ enhancement

Recommended Posts

The latest issue of Nature reports that "Genetic and pharmacological inhibition of ACMSD boosts de novo NAD+ synthesis and sirtuin 1 activity, ultimately enhancing mitochondrial function." The abstract is available here for non-subscribers.

A related complete article by the lead author of the Nature report is available here for download. According to its abstract: "Altered NAD + metabolism is associated with aging and many pathological conditions, such as metabolic diseases and disorders of the muscular and neuronal systems. Conversely, increased NAD + levels have shown to be beneficial in a broad spectrum of diseases. Here, we review the fundamental aspects of NAD + biochemistry and metabolism and discuss how boosting NAD + content can help ameliorate mitochondrial homeostasis and as such improve healthspan and lifespan."
