Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (NADH)


Why do some people seem to age, while others look like they’re taking nice loooong, refreshing sips from the fountain of youth? Is it great genes? A healthy diet and exercise? A positive attitude? Younger partners? That well-placed nip or tuck? Maybe all of the above, but science has a theory of its own: mitochondria. Mitochondria, to put it as simply as possible, are our cell’s energy producers. As they fade, so does our youthful glow. Some people believe we can slow down mitochondrial decay with supplements that increase cellular levels of a molecule called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide + hydrogen—aka NADH. Confusing name, simple(ish) job: NADH plays a vital role in the creation of the neurotransmitters (aka brain chemicals) serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine, and it’s important for mood, memory, alertness, and concentration. NADH and its oxidized sister molecule, NAD+, are necessary for energy production and properly functioning cells. Without adequate levels of these compounds, our DNA simply degrades as we age. That will happen eventually, of course, but why shouldn’t we do all we can to stay looking and feeling younger, longer? Just, you know, asking for a friend.
