Promotes healthy ageing
Of several forms of B3 tested in a lab, NR has been shown to be the most effective at raising NAD+ levels. The main evidence-based benefit of this increased NAD+ is a positive effect on the ageing process.
Although we’re not yet sure why, we know that NAD+ production drops as we age. This decline is linked to a number of age-related conditions like vision loss and heart disease, as well as chronic illnesses like diabetes. However, several studies on animals have shown that raising NAD+ levels can halt this decline.
This healthy ageing effect is thought to be down to two protein groups called sirtuins and PARPs, both of which are stimulated by NAD+. Among their many benefits, both are known to help repair damaged DNA, and sirtuins also regulate the stress response and fight harmful inflammation – all major factors in age-related decline.
Is nicotinamide riboside safe?
When used as directed, NR is generally considered safe. In studies where people were given 1000-2000mg doses, no harmful effects were seen.
Benefits of Astaxanthin:
Astaxanthin, also known as ‘the king of carotenoids’ because of its reputation as one of the most powerful antioxidants ever discovered.
Astaxanthin never converts to become a pro-oxidant. This means that it can never bring destructive oxidation in the body, making it perfect for health-related benefits and performance.
Astaxanthin as an antioxidant helps reduce oxidation, a natural that is responsible for the vast majority of inflammation cases in our bodies. If not reduced, prolonged inflammation can cause insurmountable damage to our health and well-being.
Astaxanthin is 550 times more effective as an antioxidant than vitamin E
Astaxanthin is nearly 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C, one of the most important vitamins when it comes to boosting the immune system. It’s also 550 times richer as a source of antioxidants than green tea or other Catechins.
