Dividing cancer
A paper published in the journal Biosensors and Bioelectronics has caused a stir in the longevity community by showing that nicotinamide riboside (NR), a precursor to NAD+, makes tumors more aggressive in a mouse model [1]. Using a novel diagnostic tool In this new paper, the researchers employed a well-known technique called bioluminescence imaging [2]...
Albino mouse
In a preprint published in bioRxiv, scientists have shown that long-term supplementation of nicotinamide riboside (NR), a NAD+ precursor, alleviates the progression of age-related hearing loss in a mouse model [1]. An overlooked hearing impairment Globally, age-related hearing loss (ARHL) is the most common sensory deficit of older people. Moreover, it is associated with several...
Two running mice
Scientists from Mayo Clinic have significantly extended lifespan in male mice by inhibiting the enzyme CD38, which lowers NAD levels [1]. The age-related decline of nicotinamide dinucleotide (NAD) has been associated with various metabolic abnormalities, age-related diseases, and fitness loss. What is Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide?Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme found in all living...
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. Brad is very active in the community and runs the successful Dr. Brad Stanfield Youtube channel....
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...
