Nicotinamide Riboside(NR), which is also called niagen, is a form of vitamin B3. It serves as a precursor for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme that’s needed for important body functions, like metabolism, energy production, regulating the body’s circadian rhythm and repairing DNA damage.
1.Stimulates NAD+ metabolism
2.Improves exercise performance
3.Boosts cognitive health
4.Reduces the risk of Cardiovascular disease
NR has demonstrated several beneficial pharmacological activities in preclinical studies, which suggest its potential therapeutic use. Mostly mediated by its involvement in NAD+ biosynthesis, the pharmacological activities of include its role in cellular biochemical functions, cardioprotection, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and complications associated with obesity.
