What are the Nucleotides NMN and NAD?
November 10, 2020 • 6 MIN
NAD, or Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide, is an enzyme derived from several different forms of the vitamin B3 (Niacin, Nicotinamide Riboside and Nicotinamide) and amino acids like tryptophan and aspartic acid (2). This enzyme is responsible for maintaining most important biological functions, like DNA repair, immune response, stress response, cellular differentiation, circadian rhythm and metabolism (6, 3). It acts as a carrier for electrons in energy production, oxidizing and reducing to become NAD+ or NADH (4). Additionally, NAD can work to trigger mitochondrial autophagy to help maintain a healthy level of mitochondria and reduce oxidative stress (2). Boiled down, NAD is important because it is present in every cell to help with almost all “biologically important systems in the body”, and the ability to maintain NAD production is “paramount for cell survival and function” (4).

October 15, 2020 • 13 MIN
Intermittent fasting triggers “evolutionarily conserved, adaptive cellular responses that are integrated between and within organs in a manner that improves glucose regulation, increases stress resistance and suppresses inflammation” (7). Cells activate pathways that help to bolster defenses against stress, both oxidative and metabolic, and “remove impaired or damaged molecules” (7). Intermittent fasting also has extremely powerful effects on the modulation of development and severity of potential disorders, including obesity, cancer, diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders and cardiovascular disease. Biologically, what happens during a fast is the breakdown of triglycerides into fatty acids and glycerol, both of which are used as energy. The liver then converts the fatty acids into ketones, which are also important energy sources, particularly for the brain, in periods of fast.
