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. 

Professor Brenner says: “NAD has a role in wellness at every stage. It supports cellular function from the inside out.

“It’s not intended to treat a disease or condition. It’s a wellness product but there are lots of reports of sleeping better, recovering from exercise better, going through winter without colds and recovering from scratches and bruises better.”

I’ve been taking Tru Niagen every day for eight weeks now and have definitely noticed some real benefits. My hair and nails are growing faster than ever before and my skin actually feels softer too. My mental clarity is sharper (especially around that traditional 3pm slump time) and I do feel more energised and overall much happier and healthier than I have in a very long time. It’s been reported that some people taking Tru Niagen have noticed a reduction in skin pigmentation and fine lines because their skin cells were better able to repair themselves. This makes perfect sense but to be honest for me it’s hard to tell if the Tru Niagen is reducing my fine lines and pigmentation or my regular anti-ageing treatments and skincare regime. But it’s safe to say I’ll keep taking Tru Niagen to give my body the best chance possible to stay fighting fit, healthy and well as I age.
