With technology advancing at lightening speed it’s no wonder we struggle to keep up but I recently attended the launch of an exciting new supplement that is set to change the way we age forever and it’s one worth knowing about. It turns out there’s a molecule in our bodies called NAD which may in fact hold the secret to endless energy and vitality. It’s found in every living cell in our bodies and controls our metabolism and converts the food we eat into energy which makes it pretty important.
The bad news is NAD declines as we age so at 51 I’ve now got half the levels of what I had when I was 20 – wah wah! Until recently that decline was thought to be irreversible, but Professor Charles Brenner (whom I met at the launch) has uncovered a rare form of vitamin B3 that can actually lift the level of NAD in cells giving them more energy to carry out their roles including repairing DNA and producing energy. I was fascinated to hear Prof Brenner talk about how his ground breaking new supplement, Tru Niagen, is designed to boost our natural levels of NAD to help counter the physical effects of metabolic stress and degenerative conditions like heart disease and ageing skin.
So basically speaking Tru Niagen boosts the NAD levels which allows our cells to function at their very best as we age. Sounds pretty cool right? I thought so.
Professor Brenner also said the natural decline of NAD could also speed up anytime we ate too much, drank too much, worked too much, stayed in the sun for too long, didn’t sleep well, or got sick. Eek! So it’s not just something that is effected by age!
Now just to be clear he’s not claiming the supplement will help you live longer but he does believe it can help you stay healthier and more active in your later years. That’s gotta be a good thing right? It sure is what I’m looking for.
Above: I started taking two Tru Niagen pills per day and now take two in the morning and two in the evening.
Above: As you can see the supplement only contains the rare vitamin B3 also known as Nicotinamide Riboside Chloride)
Above: As long as I keep feeling so great I’ll keep taking Tru Niagen.
