Does NR break down to NAM before NAD+

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 […]

Best Anti-aging supplements other than NR and NMN

Geroprotectors are substances that support healthy aging, slow aging, or extend healthy life. Sometimes people refer to them as “aging suppressants,” “anti-aging drugs,” “gerosuppressants,” “longevity therapeutics,” “senolytics,” or “senotherapeutics.” They include various foods, nutraceuticals (supplements), and pharmaceuticals (drugs). Unfortunately none comes close to realizing the age-old aspiration of ending aging altogether (yet), but some may make […]

Does Basis still use Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) from Chromadex?

In 2012, Research published by Dr Sinclair  of Harvard stunned researchers by showing that short term supplementation with Nicotinamide Mono-Nucleotide (NMN) reversed many aspects of aging, making the cells of old mice resemble those of much younger mice, and greatly improving their health. Since then Chromadex has been marketing a related product named Nicotinamide Riboside […]

Inflammation Is a key participant in all aging and disease

Inflammation influence on aging process itself, not just age related disease   We know NAD+ levels go down dramatically as we age.   Many recent and ongoing research studies are   investigating protocols for boosting NAD+ levels in elderly individuals to combat both disease and infirmities related to aging.  Supplementing with Nicotinamide Riboside and/or NMN are […]

Can NMN really reverse Aging? (backup)

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 demonstranted that short term supplementation with […]

Supplementation to correct NAD+ deficiency repairs vision damage in Mice

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme found in the cells of all living creatures (3,4) and is critical for communication between the cell nucleus and the mitochondria that power the cells (5,6,7) LOWER NAD+ LEVELS AS WE AGE Everyone experiences lower NAD+ levels throughout the body as we age, effecting the communication within every […]

Quercetin slows NAD+ consumption to combat Aging

Raising NAD+ levels back to youthful levels to combat aging is an exciting new field of research. Supplementing with NAD+ precursors such as Nicotinamide Riboside  and NMN are getting a lot of the attention, and recent research is proving it is effective. Rather than boosting NAD+ levels, an alternative and/or complementary approach seeks to remedy […]

Nicotinamide Riboside shown to increase NAD+ in first clinical study with humans

Nicotinamide Riboside  (Niagen) has shown the ability to elevate the co-enzyme NAD+ levels in clinical studies with Mice many times, but in a series of research described in this PHD thesis, has now been proven to have the same effect in humans. Several experiments were carried testing response to NAD+ levels in both human and […]
