The Benefits of NAD


As a breakthrough B vitamin coenzyme, the benefits of NAD+ are innumerable. Those

concerned with what they are putting into their bodies can rest assured knowing NAD+ is a

naturally occurring molecule already present within every cell of the body. Some of the more

obvious benefits may include clearer skin, thicker nails and hair, increased energy, less brain

fog, and generally feeling and looking younger. RTC particularly appreciates the infusion’s

potential to restore and enhance the brain’s neural pathways.


Currently, scientists do not know why DNA repairs decline with age. However, research is

leading more and more to suspect it is, at least in part, due to the decrease in NAD+ overtime.

NAD is a key regulator of protein-to-protein interactions in DNA repair. There are many ways in

which DNA is damaged such as spontaneous conversions, replication errors, exposure to free

radicals, etc. Damages contribute to aging and a higher risk for cancers. DNA repair is the most

important factor for cell survival and cancer prevention.


NAD actually offers a neuro-protective effect, guarding the nerves from demyelination. It may

even act itself as a neurotransmitter (involved in cell-to-cell communication) not only within the

central nervous system, but also systemically. It also works to improve concentration, memory,

and mood.


Dr. David Sinclair, professor of genetics at Harvard Medical School, has been researching

NAD+ in connection with vascular aging for many years. Vascular aging, the result of our tiniest

blood vessels withering and dying, reduces blood flow to our organs and tissues. This

decreased blood flow contributes to disease. Dr. Sinclair has found NAD+ significantly impacts

the cardiovascular system, neurological system, muscle wasting, frailty, and aging. He explains:

“The two key players in the cross talk between blood vessels and muscles are a

molecule called NAD+ and a protein called SIRT1. NAD+ boosts the SIRT1, which

in turn, enables the conversation between muscles and blood vessels. But both

NAD and SIRT1 decline as we age. They can no longer perform their role as the

interface between the muscles and blood vessels.” Muscles rely on a robust supply of blood for their function, and, while it’s true exercise slows vascular aging, it can only do so much.
