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.
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.
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.
