A study done at Harvard has shown that increasing NAD+ levels in mammals can reverse the aging process. Under study, laboratory mice were observed to exhibit multiple signs of accelerated aging. However, when the levels of NAD+ were increased in these mice, the results were nothing short of amazing: Key markers of aging, including insulin resistance, inflammation, and muscle wasting—all processes commonly associated as a “normal” part of aging—were lowered to that of mice aged 6 months.
Knowing that NAD+ is vital to cellular functioning and that NAD+ levels decrease as we age, many scientists believe a key process in slowing, stopping, or even reversing the aging process is to maintain healthy, youthful NAD+ levels. The interest in finding ways to maintain youthful NAD+ levels has given rise to a form of vitamin B3, nicotinamide riboside, which converts to NAD+ in the body.
The NTR treatment, consists of nutritional protocols that are administered through a combination of oral and IV therapy. The initial treatment is for 5 days, each day lasting between five and ten hours. A follow-up booster, lasting between 3-5 hours, is suggested once a quarter.
