ABC News reports on a men’s secret anti-aging tip growing in popularity

  Traditionally, men have paid less attention to aging than women, but that’s changing. Men are starting to take action to help their bodies be better, for longer. Arizona ABC15 Morning News recently welcomed best-selling author and nationally known nutrition researcher Jonny Bowden, PhD, CNS, to discuss the anti-aging strategies men are using, including an

NAD Deficiency, Congenital Malformations, and Niacin (Vitamin B3) Supplementation

NAD Deficiency, Congenital Malformations, and Niacin (Vitamin B3) Supplementation

Background Congenital malformations can be manifested as combinations of phenotypes that co-occur more often than expected by chance. In many such cases, it has proved difficult to identify a genetic cause. We sought the genetic cause of cardiac, vertebral, and renal defects, among others, in unrelated patients. Methods We used genomic sequencing to identify potentially

Nicotinamide riboside kinases display redundancy in mediating nicotinamide mononucleotide and nicotinamide riboside metabolism in skeletal muscle cells

Nicotinamide riboside kinases display redundancy in mediating nicotinamide mononucleotide and nicotinamide riboside metabolism in skeletal muscle cells

Objective Boosting nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) availability may protect skeletal muscle from age-related metabolic decline. Dietary supplementation of NAD+ precursors nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) and nicotinamide riboside (NR) appear to be effective in elevating muscle NAD+. Here we sought to identify the pathways mouse skeletal muscle cells utilize to create NAD+ from NMN and NR, and provide insight

SheKnows.com: A New Solution for Chemotherapy-Induced Nerve Pain?

Reposted from SheKnows.com For cancer patients, undergoing successful treatment is an important milestone on the journey to recovery, but it sure isn’t the end of the story. Patients often struggle with a long list of physical and emotional side effects that persist even after treatment has concluded. And while there’s been a great body of

Nicotinamide riboside, a form of vitamin B3 and NAD+ precursor, relieves the nociceptive and aversive dimensions of paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy in female rats

Nicotinamide riboside, a form of vitamin B3 and NAD+ precursor, relieves the nociceptive and aversive dimensions of paclitaxel-induced peripheral neuropathy in female rats

Published in Journal of the International Association for the Study of Pain (PAIN). Injury to sensory afferent nerves may contribute to the peripheral neuropathies that develop after administration of chemotherapeutic agents. Manipulations that increase levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) can protect against neuronal injury. This study examined whether nicotinamide riboside (NR), a next-generation form
