What is it about Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) that has captured the attention of modern medicine, and how is this relevant in today’s world? NAD has been known to play a vital role in cellular energy production, maintaining healthy mitochondrial function, activating DNA repair mechanisms, and helping to cope with the effects of physiologic stressors that accompany the modern lifestyle. To date, nicotinamide riboside (NR) is the only NAD precursor that is clinically proven to be safe, well-tolerated, and efficacious in boosting NAD levels in humans. Today, there’s an interest in understanding NAD’s role in supporting immune response and whether maintaining NAD levels may make cells more resilient in the face of immune stress. Join Dr. Chris Meletis, ND, educator, and international author to learn about these topics and practical ways to evaluate and employ nicotinamide riboside to support the resilience of your patients. You’ll learn:
- How cells use NAD to support healthspan by rejuvenating natural energy production mechanisms and promoting cellular repair
- How immune challenges, including viral infection, can disrupt NAD homeostasis and cause depletion of the NAD pool
- The published data that exists today on modern NAD+ precursors and which have undergone important regulatory processes for use in supplements
- The clinical evidence and cellular benefits of increasing NAD with nicotinamide riboside (NR)
