Why not both?

Erratum: Author Correction: Repeat dose NRPT (nicotinamide riboside and pterostilbene) increases NAD<sup>+</sup> levels in humans safely and sustainably: a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. [NPJ Aging Mech Dis. 2018]
NRPT is a combination of nicotinamide riboside (NR), a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) precursor vitamin found in milk, and pterostilbene (PT), a polyphenol found in blueberries. Here, we report this first-in-humans clinical trial designed to assess the safety and efficacy of a repeat dose of NRPT (commercially known as Basis). NRPT was evaluated in a randomized, double-blind, and placebo-controlled study in a population of 120 healthy adults between the ages of 60 and 80 years. The study consisted of three treatment arms: placebo, recommended dose of NRPT (NRPT 1X), and double dose of NRPT (NRPT 2X). All subjects took their blinded supplement daily for eight weeks. Analysis of NAD+ in whole blood demonstrated that NRPT significantly increases the concentration of NAD+ in a dose-dependent manner. NAD+ levels increased by approximately 40% in the NRPT 1X group and approximately 90% in the NRPT 2X group after 4 weeks as compared to placebo and baseline. Furthermore, this significant increase in NAD+ levels was sustained throughout the entire 8-week trial. NAD+ levels did not increase for the placebo group during the trial. No serious adverse events were reported in this study. This study shows that a repeat dose of NRPT is a safe and effective way to increase NAD+ levels sustainably.
I take 600 mg of Resveratrol and two large cups of Blueberries ( fresh in season, frozen out of season) daily, all year round.
The benefits of enhanced Brain Health from the Blueberries combined with the NMN and NAD+ have been enormous..
I have no doubt the Blueberries play a big part!
A breakfast hint coming off 16 hour overnight fast..
Half a Papaya, seeds scooped out. Fill hole with Blueberries and add teaspoon of virgin olive oil.
A good way to kick the day off and sets the body up digestion wise for the following meals.
It is good to have these supportive compounds to choose from since they maximise NMN and NMN maximises them.
Blueberries, Blueberries and more Blueberries and I’m now adding Black Rice to the mix...rhett wrote: ↑Wed Jun 17, 2020 5:13 pmTo follow up, I did eventually start with resvertatrol (500mg micronized trans-resveratrol from Mega Resveratrol) in addition to the pterostilbene. Hate to say it, but after 3 tries, the resveratrol consistently gives me headaches and generally makes me feel off. Back to the pterostilbene solo for me.
