Spotlight on Nicotinamide Riboside

Even the most youthful spirits can begin to notice a dip in their energy levels throughout the day as they get older, and the same thing can be happening within your cells.

Your cells’ ability to produce energy can be impacted by a decline in levels of NAD+, a molecule that plays an important role in cellular energy production.

Foods rich in B vitamins (niacin in particular) can act as precursors to NAD+. However, your typical diet may not provide sufficient amounts to maintain the NAD+ balance in your cells.

This is where nicotinamide riboside (NR) comes in; NR is an effective way to help increase levels of NAD+ in your body to support your cellular energy metabolism as you age.

What is Nicotinamide Riboside?

Nicotinamide riboside is a specialized cellular nutrient that can assist in boosting NAD+ levels, helping to support your cells’ ability to produce energy.

What is NAD+?

NAD+ is short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD+ is a coenzyme, which means it serves an important role as a helper molecule, assisting proteins in regulating cellular functions.

NAD+ levels have been shown to decline with age, and a lack of NAD+ can limit cells’ energy production. NAD+ is involved in multiple metabolic processes relating to cellular energy and mitochondrial health, including helping to turn food into energy.

The role of NAD+ in energy production has been well-known for some time, but there is now more understanding of the diverse roles of NAD+ within cells, and how it can impact the aging process.

Celltrient™ Cellular Energy Drink Mix: A Source of NR

Our Celltrient Cellular Energy Drink Mixes contain Tru Niagen® nicotinamide riboside (NR), which has been clinically shown to increase NAD+ levels in as little as two weeks.

The Celltrient Energy formula also contains vitamin C, as well as a blend of B vitamins (B5, B6, B12, riboflavin, thiamin and biotin) to support energy metabolism.
