Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is found in every cell in the body and is critical for regulating genes that accelerate aging. Over time, the NAD levels in our bodies decline. When they do, energy transfer in cells breaks down, leading to mitochondrial dysfunction that results in many of the physical symptoms we know as aging. Fortunately, by increasing intracellular levels of NAD+, age-related mitochondrial dysfunction can be reversed. A study done in worms (C. elegans) showed that older worms had lower levels of NAD+ when compared to younger worms. When NAD+ levels were decreased even further, the worms aged faster. When worms had their NAD+ levels restored, it prevented metabolic changes of aging and increased their life span.5 Of course, it is a large step—evolutionarily and biologically—from yeast and worms to mammals. However, studies done in mammals have also shown that NAD+ levels are critical for not only healthy cellular and mitochondrial functioning, but aging itself.

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.

Treatment

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.
