Tag: NAD+

December 08, 2020
We recently explored why NAD+ declines during aging, and today, we want to spotlight a new review that takes a deep dive into CD38, one of the reasons for this decline [1]. Nicotinamide Adenine DinucleotideNicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It is a dinucleotide, which means that it consists...

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme found in all living cells and is essential for cells to work; without it, life would be impossible. The connection between aging and the accompanying loss of NAD+ has been the subject of much research, and a new study sheds light on why this happens. Nicotinamide Adenine DinucleotideNicotinamide...

According to new research, mutations accumulate in the mitochondrial DNA of egg cells, leading to changes in cellular metabolism, which result in reduced fertility. The study also showed that NMN treatment can restore the metabolic balance in aging mouse oocytes, rescuing fertility. Defective eggs Although malfunctioning of mitochondria and the accumulation of mutations in mitochondrial...

This is part 2 of a series focused on the age-related decline of NAD+; if you have not read the previous part, you can find it here. Today, we are continuing our look at some of the evidence for the age-related decline of NAD+ in humans and some of the likely reasons why this happens....

There has been considerable debate around the age-related decline of NAD+, particularly regarding whether or not it occurs in humans as it does in other species, such as mice. Today, as part of a two-part special, we are going to be taking a look at some of the evidence for the age-related decline of NAD+...

A team of researchers have discovered a novel way to study the process of hair graying, finding it potentially reversible and linked to psychological stress. The abundant anecdotal evidence of hair graying overnight (or, as Shakespeare put it in Henry IV: "Thy father's beard is turned white with the news"), may have finally received a...
