Benefits of NR

Benefits of NR  

As the most efficient and effective NAD+ booster, NR can deliver results in a number of different areas: 


  • Promotes healthy mitochondrial function, which is an important component of human aging1,3
  • Supplementation of an NAD+ precursor for one week in aged mice reversed their mitochondrial dysfunction and returned mitochondrial health and key biochemical markers of muscle health to levels similar to a young mouse1,2,3
  • Increases sirtuin activation, improving mitochondrial activity to help prevent cellular damage due to free radicals1,3


  • Shown to lower high-fat-diet-induced weight gain by enhancing energy metabolism1,2


  • Maintains neuronal health1
  • Improves cognitive function and protects against axonal degeneration associated with aging1,2,3

heartCardiovascular Health1

  • Promotes beneficial effects on blood lipids by maintaining healthy cholesterol levels already within normal range1


  • Improved endurance due to enhanced mitochondrial function1,3
  • More robust respiratory exchange ratio (RER) between feeding and fasting periods1,2


What the experts are saying

  • “We obtained convincing evidence that oral supplementation of NR boosts NAD+ and enhances the body’s utilization of NAD+ to a greater degree than the conventional forms of vitamin B3. NR is the most efficient means to boost NAD+.”
    Charles Brenner, PhD.
    Roy J. Carver, Chair and Head of Biochemistry; University of Iowa; The discoverer of NR as a vitamin, Dr. Brenner is the world's leading expert on NAD+ metabolism. He has published more than 35 articles in scientific literature on actions of NR and NAD+ metabolism.
