I see there are a lot of AliveByScience forum users... all of who know much more than I do.
I came across NAD Boosters on Facebook, but the information there is a bit confusing to me, I have always found Facebook groups harder to follow than the old style BBS - and i am pleased to have found this group.
I am just over 58, and i have no diseases that i am aware of. I have been smoke free for 8 years and i really want to take charge of my health and do as much as i can to have a long and healthy life.
I am maybe 25 pounds over weight. It seems a lot of people went one way or the other during this pandemic, but i have been largely the same. I do want to get back exercising.
My one weakness I that i feel low in energy. Maybe it's a low grade depression. So I am trying to get myself motivated to turn things around, lose weight and start some form of exercise. It will have to be jogging and maybe a home gym, since I think we are not close to having a safe gym experience for at least many months.
Does anyone have a good way for me to start? How much NMN should I be taking? Is there something I should be taking in addition? I am learning a lot - and it seems that I could take NAD or NAD boosters. I think it makes more sense to take something to boost NAD rather than taking NAD itself. But I am not sure.
I guess I am looking for a starter kit.
Keep that all going even after the NMN benefits start kicking in and you should then really feel in good shape.
Eating one meal a day is very beneficial to turning on and off mTor daily, going from building up the body and muscle tissues to autophagy, which is like the auto-clean function of a self-cleaning oven, cleaning out all the cellular waste and garbage on a daily basis. Read James Clement's book "The Switch" where he explains this very important concept. The idea is supported by Dr. David Sinclair as well. Best of luck and keep us posted on how you're doing.
Good sleep, intermittent fasting and exercise are the key and then build your AliveByScience Supplement Protocol around that. You could consider including some adaptogen herbal supplements as well.
As you can see we have many enthusiastic members willing to support you in your journey, as many of us call it.
If you look at the list in my signature, you will see that my participation goes somewhat beyond mild enthusiasm. If you are curious about why i take a particular item, feel free to message me or post and ask.
But NMN paired with TMG and Resveratrol, as well as fasting are a great way to start. If you fast regularly as exercise daily, the weight should come down. I have lost 50 pounds over the last 18 months.
Green Tea Extract
Liposomal Curcumin / Resveratrol
Vitamin E tocotrienols
Virgin Olive Oil
A lot to think about and research here.
Which shrooms are we talking about specificially?
I take a mixture of Reishi, Chaga, Cordyceps and Lions Mane Shroom Powder all mixed together in one storage container then I add
1x teaspoon to hot water as a tea and take twice per day.. All of the above mushrooms have their own unique properties and benefits.
