NRG Advantage gives you NIAGEN, the first and only commercially available form of nicotinamide riboside (NR). NIAGEN is a highly effective nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) booster and naturally occurring "no flush" vitamin B3 metabolite found in milk. NAD+ is an important coenzyme that regulates mitochondrial energy production. Increasing the concentration of NAD+ may help benefit mitochondrial health as well as potentially increase cellular energy, and protect against oxidative stress. Plus, NAD+ acts as a substrate in biological pathways related to protein modification. This ensures that the proper molecules are created for different biological functions. It's like fueling your car with gasoline. The gas (or substrate) is essential to powering the engine (or proteins) of your car (or body) to propel it forward. Without it, your car will not function correctly. For reasons still unknown, as we age, our levels of NAD decline by as much as 50 percent. It is believed that as the communication between the cell nucleus and the mitochondria falters, energy production decreases and cells begin to age more quickly. Researchers found that NR is the most effective precursor to boost the co-enzyme NAD+ in the cell. And scientists believe the stimulation of mitochondrial function with NR may increase longevity. Researchers compared the mitochondrial NAD+ levels in the skeletal muscles of 6-month-old mice to those of 2-year-old mice. Levels were much lower in the older mice. Researchers then injected old mice with NR, which increased NAD+ levels, resulting in restored communication between the nucleus and the mitochondria. In human years, that would be the equivalent of a 60-year-old's mitochondria behaving more like those of a 20-year-old. This impressive preliminary outcome has caught the attention of many researchers around the world.
