So, what is this NAD people keep talking about?
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD), is a micronutrient produced by the body that is essential for healthy mitochondria. Mitochondria are organelles within each cell that produce energy. Essentially, the “power house” of the cell. Simply put, if the mitochondria are not functioning properly the cell loses energy, and by extension we lose energy as well.
The amount of NAD produced by the body gradually declines as we age. Have you ever noticed a child running around like crazy and you think, “Man, I wish I had some of that energy.” Well, you may not be able to get THAT much energy, but through the use of science you may be able to get some back.
As we age, diminishing levels of NAD are associated with mitochondrial deterioration. Decaying of mitochondria is a key driver of the aging process. So, why do they decline? It’s not the world turning against you. I promise. NAD levels decline due to stress and viruses that you have been exposed to. Addiction, Anxiety, and PTSD can also deplete your NAD levels.
In addition to the natural decay of mitochondria that occurs with aging, there are some individuals who are believed to be suffering from genetically inherited “NAD Energy Deficiency Syndrome.” This syndrome is characterized by low energy states and chronic fatigue and may predispose individuals to compulsive/addictive forms of behavior. This means slower cell repair.
When you supplement your NAD levels you can:
- repair your DNA
- protect your brain cells from damage resulting in clarity
- reduce your inflammation
- fight the oxidative stress that comes with aging
- increase your energy
Many people have jumped on the band wagon pointing to the importance of preserving mitochondria as one of the key ways to delaying the aging process. NAD is essential to healthy mitochondrial function. Mitochondrial function is essential for youthful energy and good health.
NAD is also not absorbed by the gut efficiently. Aqua Restore can help you fight aging with NAD injections, bypassing the gut. Call and schedule a consultation today to see if you qualify.
