Thanks also to Drdavid about the elderberry information...I hear of people buying up Sambucol because they think it will help with colds and coughs, but that stuff has elderberry in it, eek!
Is this something we could be taking to boost NMN?
NAD+ is greatly diminished in virus (and bacterial) infections.
We wrote an article that reviews research that implies NAD+ is likely to be beneficial for virus in general.

The method of action is fighting inflammation to prevent, or minimize damage from the "cytokine storm" results from the immune system response.
We also just posted an article that shows NAD+ injections prevents death from septic shock caused by "cytokine storm" in mice given a lethal dose of E. coli bacteria.

Yes, that is bacteria - not virus. However, the immune system response and inflammatory response is very similar. In the bacteria infection, it was shown the NAD+ did not impact the bacteria, but minimized inflammation to prevent death.
