Healthy Aging and NAD
NAD is very important to our bodies but its levels decline as we age. Boosting NAD levels may play a vital role in healthy aging.
A lot of us don’t really think about our cells, it’s something that we don’t really pay attention to. We rarely spend time thinking about its health or condition. Not all of us are aware of how important these cells functions and how it impacts our overall health.
Cells might be the smallest form of life but they have critical functions in all living organisms. Our energy, immunity, the feeling of comfort and most importantly our well-being starts with our cells. In spite of its given importance, most of us may be considered guilty when we talk about taking cellular health for granted. Yes, we could have payed attention to our diet, food intake and environment. But more often than not, we hardly take any measure to things that can help our cells stay healthy until things start to go wrong. We’ll start to feel more tired than usual, feel physical exhaustion in simple activities, a drastic change to sleep patterns and on the outside, our skin doesn’t look as young and healthy as it used too. That only means one thing, we are not taking care of our cells and we are not aging healthily.
Modern science and extensive research have found out that we don’t have to feel that way as we age. It’s common for everyone to think that just eating healthy, having an exercise daily, resting, sleeping right and quitting vices like smoking are enough but you’ll be surprised to know that there is still more that needs to be done and it all should start on taking care of our cells. NAD is the answer to healthy cells and can help us age healthily.
What is NAD and why do we need it?
The best way to keep our cells healthy is to supply them on what they need to function effectively and properly. One of the most vital components of a healthy cell has something to do with a coenzyme called NAD. This molecule proved its function in cell repair and scientifically famous in supercharging our cells. However, only few people outside of those who do the research even know what NAD is all about.
Is NAD the key to remaining young? This question may not be as crazy as it sounds. Alice Park, a staff writer at TIME covering health, medicine, nutrition, and fitness examines a study from Harvard researchers to determine the relationship between NAD and aging.
