Advanced nutrition, anti-ageing supplement to increase focus, concentration and clarity of mind. Fundamentally NAD (Nicotinamide adenine Dinucleotide) is an essential coenzyme that is critical in keeping the cells energy factories healthy for many cells. It also plays an important part in the transfer of energy from our food to vital cell functions, especially in the brain. Great for those times you are fasting!
DNA repair is key to staying young. NAD which is found naturally in our bodies, dramatically declines after 40, so supplementation is crucial. It also maintains sleep and circadian rhythms and also required for life to exist. Our cellular health depends on NAD. Without it, cells cannot function. It is an essential coenzyme to the human brain, blood and muscle health. It is also responsible for many cellular functions in our body and also contributes to greater longevity.
NAD with Green Rooibos extract is a first in South Africa as well as in the world. There are NAD products available locally and internationally, but never before has a combination of these two power ingredients been made.
|How does NAD help?
|What happens when NAD levels are low?
|Helps support your circadian rhythm
|The circadian rhythm determines your sleep-wake and hunger cycles. NAD plays an important part in our circadian rhythm, because it influences the body’s cycles, which regulate other physiological processes like metabolism, body temperature, digestion, hormone release and our cells’ ability to communicate with other cells.
NAD plays an important role in the communication link between our circadian rhythm and cell’s mitochondria. Mitochondria are the power plants in cells and are responsible for converting food into energy.
|Long periods of disruption of the circadian rhythm (your sleep-wake and hunger cycles) lead to degenerative diseases. (For example, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoporosis.
|Assist with metabolic health
|NAD and the link with circadian rhythm are also important to maintain metabolic health. If our circadian rhythm is out of sync then the body will not regulate appetite as it should. It also affects when and how we burn energy for exercise and how glucose is transferred in our blood cells.
|Not looking after your metabolic health could lead to metabolic disorders like diabetes.
|Help protect the brain
|NAD has shown to help improve memory loss. The human brain contains 1 billion cells and can perform 38 thousand-trillion operations per second. That much computational power requires a massive amount of energy. As we already know, energy comes from mitochondria. The brain needs well-functioning mitochondria in order to work properly.
|Low NAD levels can lead to mitochondrial dysfunction, which is associated with varying levels of cognitive decline from simple “brain fog” to diseases such as memory loss, concentration challenges, and even Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
|Assist with heart health
|NAD levels have also been linked to the way in which our vascular system ages. NAD can benefit the functioning of our cardiovascular systems and assist with a reduction of inflammation. NAD has also shown that it can assist with:
· the growth of new blood vessels
· the maintenance of blood vessels
· keeping the vascular system soft and supple.
|If your vascular system is not kept healthy you could be at risk of a heart attack or other cardiovascular disorders and diseases.
|Maintains healthy DNA
|DNA repair is the most important factor for cell survival and cancer prevention.
NAD also activates sirtuins, which are responsible for the regulation of biological pathways, turn genes on and off and protect against age related decline.
|Unhealthy DNA leads to cell dysfunction and cell death
