NAD+ is an essential molecule for healthy cells.
Nicotinamide Adenine Nucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme that is found in all living cells.
It is central to cellular metabolism and is involved in redox reactions in the body.
NAD+ is one of four nucleotides in the body.
Together with NADH, NADP+ and NADPH it forms the NAD-pool that is strictly regulated in the body.
NAD+ is involved in over 1,200 biochemical processes in the body, which includes energy metabolism, nutrient sensing, the immune system, gene repair, hormone metabolism, drug metabolism, pain pathways, neural functioning, apoptotic pathways and other essential cellular processes.
It also participates in signaling pathways that are involved in ageing, wound healing and disease processes. Essentially the four isoforms oscillate to maintain homeostasis in the body.
