Oxidation-reduction (redox) is a part of the metabolic system and converts food into the energy the body needs to function properly. Among other functions:
NAD plays a significant role in anti-aging. NAD levels decline as we age, and this decline is thought to be a significant contributing factor to the aging process.
NAD works on mitochondria and increases the length of telomeres (the protective caps located at the ends of chromosomes that become shorter as the body ages).
NAD increases the activity of SIRT1 and PARP 1 proteins, which are linked with a slower rate of aging and influencing DNA repair respectively.
The body naturally produces NAD, but overall levels of the coenzyme decrease over time, leading to cellular changes that result in age-related pathologies/illnesses. IV NAD+ gives your body back this powerful molecule which makes it better able to heal itself.
