White Blood Cells
A study published in the Nature journal Aging and Mechanisms of Disease has shown that supplementation with nicotinamide riboside (NR) substantially improves the immune systems of older mice due to its effects on stem cell fate. However, the benefits do not persist after NR is removed. The destiny of blood cells As the researchers explain,...
Brad Stanfield Interview
In this interview with Steve Hill of Lifespan.io, Dr. Brad Stanfield discusses the various forms of niacin along with NAD+ boosters such as NR and NMN, and he touches upon supplements, rapamycin, and other facets of the longevity world.

NR molecule
Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is part of the B3 vitamin family. Like other forms of vitamin B3, nicotinamide riboside gets converted into nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a coenzyme essential for life. For this reason, it is often called a NAD+ precursor because it is part of the series of chemical steps that are required to create...
Diagram of NADH
What is NAD+? Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a key coenzyme found in all living cells. It is a dinucleotide, which means that it consists of two nucleotides joined through their phosphate groups. One nucleotide contains an adenine base, and the other contains nicotinamide. NAD+ is essential for life, one of the most versatile molecules...
Runner
A clinical trial of endurance runners recently published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition found nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) to increase several measures of aerobic capacity. Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN)Nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) is a precursor of the coenzyme NAD+, which serves critical functions in our cells and declines with age.Read More Could NMN...
Chamomile is a great source of Apigenin.
This active ingredient in chamomile tea has traditionally been used to ease anxiety and reduce stress. We investigate if the scientific studies support this traditional use and how it relates to aging. What is apigenin? Apigenin is a very common and widely distributed flavonoid in the plant kingdom. Flavonoids are a class of naturally occurring...
