The coenzyme Nicotinic Adenosine Dinucleotide, NAD for short, is a coenzyme that is involved in major metabolic pathways. In general it is important in energy, neurologic functions, digestion, mood regulation, muscle recovery in athletes and many other functions since it is in the core metabolic pathway for all bodily functions.
Enhance Athletic Performance
NAD is used to enhance athletic performance in body builders, marathon runners, dancers and other strenuous athletics. By playing a role in redox reactions in the complicated Kreb cycle of cellular respiration. It is in essence the energy producing coenzyme inside the mitochondria which is involved in producing ATP the energy currency of the body.
NAD helps to:
- Increased energy levels
- Decreased fatigue
- Restore muscle function and athletic performance
- Improved metabolism
- Weight loss
NAD also due to its helping the mitochondria function, increase metabolism which slows with aging. As we age the level of NAD goes down leads to weight gain, fatigue and lack of youthful energy. When these levels are restored it may improve your metabolism thus can act as antiaging factor.
