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 new study may shed some light on how aging and circadian rhythms may be linked by discovering a role for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) in preventing the age-related disruption of circadian rhythms in mice. A circadian rhythm is an automatic process that regulates a cycle of behavioral changes and repeats roughly every 24 hours....

A new study suggests that we can actively fight back against age-related decline with resistance training to restore our levels of NAD+, a critical molecule used by the mitochondria in our cells to produce energy. NAD+ and mitochondria The mitochondria are the powerhouses of the cell, and they use the nutrients we consume in order...

A group of researchers has demonstrated that treatment with NMN, a precursor of NAD+, restores neurovascular coupling (NVC) in aged mice [1]. Since NVC deficiency seems to be a major factor in the age-related decline of cognitive and motor functions, this discovery presents exciting new possibilities for longevity research. Neurovascular coupling While the human brain...
