Nicotinamide Riboside fights aging liver disease in Mice

Increasing evidence about the importance NAD+ levels in the body continuous to emerge. This week reseachers in China released a report indicating a link between the onset of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and the aging associated decline in NAD+ level. Further more they found that supplementation with nicotinamide riboside in a NAD+ deficient mice model completely […]

Nicotinamide Riboside helps alleviate problems from diabetes in Mice

In a study that perhaps more serves as proof that NAD+ deficiency plays a role in diabetes researchers used high levels of nicotinamide riboside supplementation to demonstrate it protects mice from diabetes complications. There is an association between prediabetic polyneuropathy (PDPN)1 and obesity, about half of individuals with diabetes will also suffer from diabetic peripheral […]

Nicotinamide Riboside Reprograms Aging Stem Cells

  By Mickey Johnston A study published in the leading academic journal Science in April 2016 showed that supplementation of aged mice with nicotinamide riboside, a form of vitamin B3, resulted in both increased lifespan and enhanced healthspan.1 Scientists found that nicotinamide riboside has the ability to reprogram dysfunctional stem cells to function as they did in youth.(1) Although this study was done on mice, […]

Whats the TRUTH about Nicotinamide Riboside (NIAGEN)

As we age, our levels of the Co-enzyme Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide NAD+ drop significantly in multiple organs in mice and humans  (5,8,10). NAD+ decrease is described as a trigger in age-associated decline(23), and perhaps even the key factor in why we age (5). In 2013, research published by Dr David Sinclair demonstrated that short term supplementation with […]
