Today i want to talk about Niagen a little bit, a natural health supplement that’s a little bit different than what i generally talk about. Nicotinamide Riboside is the main ingredient, the only ingredient as well, 250 mg. In the list of benefits for Niagen it says that it can promote improves energy levels, it can increase muscle strenght, clearer thinking, memory, focus and it can help enhance your immune system.
Nicotinamide riboside has actually been studied for some time and tests were made on lab mice and later on a group of people and it was shown that it can help with inhibiting the growth of certain types of pathogenic or harmful bacteria in the human body while also potentially help with opposing neurodegenerative processes in the brain, even improving cognitive performance. Nicotinamide riboside is naturally found in milk, and this chemical is a precursor to Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or simply NAD+.
Your body will take nicotinamide riboside and use it to produce NAD+, to synthesize it and the reason you need this is because aging causes your body to produce less NAD+, the production slows down like many other chemical productions in the body, time gets to us all in the end.
Well as i am typing all of this of course many of you will be confused, what does this mean, what use does NAD+ have in the body? Well it is a very important, even essential component of every cell in your body, of course the cels in your brain as well, your neurons.
NAD+ or Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is used in cellular metabolism and in producing chemical energy by the mitochondria, in helping protect cells from oxidation and from dying. Since it helps in the production of energy and since you get less as you age, it means you get less energy. This is literally the reason why you have so much more energy when you are young, especially when you are a kid, because you don’t have such problems and your body has more than enough Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide and cellular metabolism is working at its best and the mitochondria is working at its best and everything is fine.
Also cellular metabolism slowing down and this decrease in energy is the trigger to many health problems and also is a factor in aging of the skin and the body and so with this, Niagen can help slow down aging and make you feel younger you could say, because of giving you more energy.
