It is a coenzyme of Vitamin B3 (niacin), which means it’s a small helper molecule that binds to a protein molecule in order to activate an enzyme. Enzymes are responsible for over 5,000 different biochemical reactions throughout the body and NAD+participates in more reactions than any other vitamin-derived molecule.
NAD+ helps create energy
NAD+ helps your cells convert food into energy by acting as an electron transporter during cell metabolism ‘power station’ for the body.
A constant supply of NAD+ is needed for the activation of PARPs, which detect and repair damaged DNA.
NAD+& . and NADH are used in processes such as metabolizing alcohol and converting lactate to pyruvate in the body.
NAD+ is also released from the intracellular space to the extracellular space for communication. Research is revealing that NAD and ATP may alert the immune response when the cell is under stress or when there is inflammation.
Although more research still needs to be conducted, in some instances, NAD+ meets the pre- and postsynaptic criteria for a neurotransmitter. NAD+& is released from smooth muscle, neurosecretory cells, and brain synaptosomes for cell-to-cell communication.
