Nad+ Is Key For Mitochondrial Biogenesis, Cognition Enhancement, Neuroprotection And Cellular Health

edited June 2015 in Brain Hacking

Increasing NAD+ is an essential key to brain/overall health and performance.


PQQ and CoQ10 are great for mitochondria function, but NIAGEN is the only nutrient than can actually increase NAD+ directly...

Mitochondria are the power plants of our cells. NAD+ is an essential metabolite in every cell of your body, it plays a key role in the health and metabolism within the mitochondria of every cell. NAD+ facilitates the communication between the nucleus of a cell and its mitochondria, maintaining both cellular health and overall energy.

A nutrient called NIAGEN (nicotinamide riboside) is the only product clinically proven to significantly boost levels of NAD+ in the cell, thus, encouraging mitochondrial biogenesis and increasing health on a cellular level. Anyone interested in optimal health, cognitive enhancement, neuroprotection, longevity, recovery, endurance, and anti-aging should read about this one...

    From what I found out,  all the NAD+  supplements out there that were meant to increase NAD+,   you have to take a WHOLE LOT of it to make a difference.   That is why Dave created Unfair Advantage since it does a better job though a different way.  


  • I love this nutrient, NIAGEN is really good stuff.


    I take this every w/ Ubiquinol (CoQ10) and PQQ (the nutrients in unfair advantage).


    I take all my mitochondrial nutrients every morning with a 20 ounce raw juice, and it feels amazing.


    Take the NIAGEN dose as recommended.




  • So how much do you need to take?  (Would just PM me w/ the reference and dosage?)


     


    It seems like $1000/month would you get some decent results with mitochondria, just through targeted supplementation of compounds like Unfair Advantage and Niagen, etc.


     


    (not counting vitamins, minerals, and so on). 




     


     


    It was mentioned in one his  Podcast when he  was answering questions.  I cant remember if he mentioned the dosage but you had to take a lot.    It is not colloidal (spelling)  like Unfair Advantage....I always try to get my supplements in colloidal form.....in that form the body is not fool and it quickly recognizes as food and uses it up with much better absorption.

    Its definitely not a substitute for unfair advantage- in fact, Niagen should be a very complementary nutrient to unfair advantage.


    I take both (sometimes on the same day, sometimes alternating) and I definitely feel like my body is more responsive including Niagen. 


    As far as I know PQQ and COQ10 cannot increase NAD+ but they can increase mitochondria function... I really love all of them together.


    Here is a link to the clinical results with Niagen:

    This is real nutritional science, backed with serious research.

    You taking 2 boxes of UA per week?

    Biggest takeaway after several years as a hardcore biohacker: think long-term. Focus on health first before adding in boosters. It works a lot better.
  • Old thread, but perhaps worth mentioning:

    For all those taking high amounts of Niacel (nicotinamide riboside), I would watch the over-expression of the NAMPT-pathway and associated risk with glioblastoma cell proliferation and aggressiveness:

    Pathway linked to slower aging also fuels brain cancer
    https://siteman.wustl.edu/pathway-linked-slower-aging-also-fuels-brain-cancer/

    and further

    NAMPT overexpression induces cancer stemness and defines a novel tumor signature for glioma prognosis
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29245920

    In plain English: with more activation of the NAD+ pathway, the more aggressive certain brain tumour cells become and the more resistant they are to cell-apoptosis and cancer treatments.
