GENERAL WELLNESS + ACCELERATED RECOVERY
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.
PROTECTS BRAIN CELLS
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,
ANTI-AGING AND MUSCLE PROTECTION
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.
