NRH as a NAD+ precursor

Post by Fred » Thu Apr 23, 2020 4:05 pm

Maintaining cellular NAD levels through supplementation with intermediates of NAD synthesis has considerable health benefits. A new study demonstrates that the reduced form of nicotinamide riboside, NRH, can be converted to NAD in a biosynthetic pathway that involves adenosine kinase, thus strongly boosting NAD levels in cells and tissues.

Very interesting, Fred. I found this youtube video that explains the newly discovered pathway found in the study. Worth a look.
