CBD and NAD+ - A Very Potent Combination for Fighting Inflammation

Current research shows the powerful role inflammation plays as an underlying cause in most pervasive chronic conditions. Ultimately, higher levels of inflammation manifests as damage to tissues and increases the production of damaging free radicals, a situation we call oxidative stress. When oxidative stress is running rampant, damage occurs to our proteins and even our DNA. Emerging research now demonstrates that both CBD and NAD+ have significant potential in terms of limiting inflammation. Both CBD and NAD+ have been touted for a wide variety of health issues, with strong scientific evidence for effectiveness in treating some of the cruelest childhood epilepsy syndromes, such as Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), which are typically unresponsive to antiseizure medications. CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep. CBD demonstrates neuroinflammatory effects in mice with significant decrease of Il-6 and TNF markers of inflammation. NAD+ was shown to decrease IL-2, IL-6, and CRP markers of inflammation in humans. Both CBD and NAD+ have been shown to cross the blood brain barrier more effectively when administered via intranasal delivery.
