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...

A new mouse study published in Cell Reports has shown that a metabolic precursor of the coenzyme NAD+ rejuvenates oocytes (egg cells), restoring fertility [1]. The oldest cells In humans, female fertility begins to decline near the end of the third decade of life, long before other markers of aging appear. This age-related decline is...

Mitochondria provide our cells with the energy they need to function, and they become increasingly dysfunctional as we age. A new study suggests that mitochondrial rejuvenation in the context of restoring healthy blood flow and neurovascular health might be possible with the popular supplement NMN. Rejuvenation of aged mitochondria The mitochondria are the power stations...

Recently, Dr. David Sinclair did an AMA ("Ask Me Anything") on Reddit. Events like these, which allow people to ask researchers questions about their work on an open forum, can often turn up interesting responses that are not always uncovered during interviews. We have picked these few questions and answers, but we suggest that you...

A human trial of NMN has recently concluded, and the results are not impressive at all; however, this is perfectly fine because that was not the purpose of the study, and, despite the lackluster results, the study was a success! This might sound strange, but perhaps the words of the study authors may make it...
