How Does NAD+ Work?
NAD+ Provides Cells With Energy
NAD+ is an essential component of the metabolic process in every cell in the body. It is a coenzyme that is mostly involved in anabolic processes, building complex proteins and fats. Besides its use in energy metabolism, it is a cofactor for NAD+ dependent enzymes such as sirtuins (SIRTs) and poly (ADP-ribose) polymerases (PARP). Sirtuins and PARPs are both involved in aging and decline over time. PARPs are involved in the DNA repair process.
NAD+ Declines As We Age
As NAD+ is converted to NADPH and back again, some is lost. More is lost with aging, which compromises cellular repair processes. NAD+ levels can be restored through tryptophan or nicotinic acid in the diet. The majority, however, comes from the salvage pathway. NAD+ cannot pass across the cell membrane, but two NAD+ precursors – nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide (NAM) – can. Both of these can be obtained from the diet.
NAD+ Injections Replenish NAD Levels in the Body
CD38 is a protein that is involved in age-related NAD decline. Levels of CD38 increase as we age and burn through a lot of NAD+. Increased levels of CD38 and decreasing levels of NAD+ with aging, along with the need for NAD+ for cellular repair, have led researchers to investigate its usage to slow the aging process.

Where Do I Start?
What is NAD+ used for?
- Low energy
- Mental fog
- Low concentration
- Chronic fatigue
- Poor sleep
- Body fat
- Immune function
You should avoid NAD+ if you are/have:
- There are no known contraindications, except for a known allergy to NAD+
- The safety of NAD+ in pregnant or breastfeeding women has not been evaluated. It should not be used by pregnant or breastfeeding women.
- If you already have cancer, NAD+ can potentially fuel cancer growth. NAD+ is a molecule used throughout the body, and supplementation may trigger a mix of positive and negative outcomes.
What are the side effects of NAD+?
- Shortness of breath
- Increased plasma bilirubin
- Decreased gamma-glutamyl transferase, lactate dehydrogenase, and aspartate aminotransferase
- High doses of nicotinamide can cause liver injury.
- High doses of niacin as a supplement to increase NAD+ levels can cause headaches, skin flushing, and dizziness. Excessive intake of niacin or nicotinamide may contribute to the development of Parkinson’s disease. In addition, nicotinamide may contribute to the development of diabetes.
