When shopping the market for anti-aging supplements it’s practically impossible to avoid the mention of “NAD” and “NAD+”. But what are these mysterious substances? What is the difference between the two? And, more importantly, what is their relevance to the human aging process? Time to clear the air!
Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) is best defined as a cofactor. “Cofactor” is a rather general term indicating any non-protein chemical compound which plays an essential role in catalyzing enzyme reactions. One of the first and most important things to know about this particular cofactor is that it can be found in each and every living cell – not just in humans, but in every single creature on Earth!
Now, onto the issue of that confusing “+” symbol. NAD+ is the oxidized form of NAD which accepts electrons from other molecules and becomes reduced into NADH. This reduced form of NAD is then used to donate electrons.
That’s all a very complicated way of saying that NAD is essential for electron transfer reactions. To give an idea of how important electron transfer is to all life on Earth, it’s worth stating that biochemical processes like respiration, photosynthesis, and oxygen binding are all dependent upon said transfers. In a nutshell, no NAD = no life (as we know it).
This also indicates that NAD+ may be, of all NAD forms, the most direct instigator of electron transfer reactions. For this reason, it is a focal point for the purpose of anti-aging supplementation.
NAD+ and Anti-Aging
Recently, a great deal of research has surfaced which indicates that declining NAD+ levels are a fundamental aspect of the physical and mental decline which is associated with aging.
Among this research is a 2018 study from the Washington University School of Medicine which reviews the current clinical literature on NAD+ and aging. Upwards of 80 studies were analyzed in this review and the researchers conclusion was that “systemic NAD+ decline is one of the fundamental molecular events that regulate the process of aging and possibly limit organismal life span.”1
While the potential of this theory is undeniably exciting to anyone who values their health and longevity, it doesn’t necessarily draw a straight-forward path to the development of anti-aging supplements. This is due to the difficulty of manipulating bodily concentrations of NAD+ in cells. Numerous supplements have been developed in a short amount of time to achieve this, but many of the chose ingredients have proven to be relatively ineffective.
This brings us to Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN). NMN is, as the name suggests, a nucleotide which serves as an intermediate of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide biosynthesis.2 This has led many to believe that the consumption of NMN may be the most viable way of directly raising NAD+ levels in the human body. This popular hypothesis has been analyzed by a handful of recent studies, and while the research is still ongoing the results have been very promising thus far.
One study conducted on aged mice concluded that “NMN supplementation exerts significant cerebromicrovascular protective effects in aged mice.” It also goes on to state that clinical trials on elderly human subjects were a necessary and imminent step to take in this line of research.3
The Platinum Advantage
Quicksilver Scientific have positioned themselves on the cutting edge of nutritional NAD+ research. As such, Liposomal NAD+ Platinum is one of the first and only advanced delivery forms of an NMN supplement. Liposomal encapsulation via phospholipids from all-natural sunflower lecithin may aid significantly in the absorption of NMN into the bloodstream and the cells of the body.
Unlike their breakthrough NAD+ Gold formula, Quicksilver Scientific NAD+ Platinum contains B-complex vitamins and phytocompounds. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) and methylcobalamin (vitamin B12) are essential to methylation – a biochemical process which is essential to the synthesis of NAD+. Meanwhile, phytocompounds like quercetin and resveratrol are necessary to help supercharge sirtuins (longevity proteins) and support the actions of NAD+.
There’s simply no other formula on the market which has been so rigorously designed to support every facet of NAD+ production and function. Quicksilver Scientific NAD+ Platinum is the crème de la crème of anti-aging supplements.
