Our dietary supplement has been developed from nicotinamide riboside, a rare form of vitamin B3. This is a water-soluble vitamin produced by the body in small quantities and taken in supplement form for therapeutic purposes. An element naturally present in milk and beer, nicotinamide riboside is nonetheless found in very few foods which is why dietary supplements can prove beneficial.
When nicotinamide riboside was discovered, it was hailed as the ‘miracle molecule’ or the ‘amazing hidden vitamin’ by certain sections of the international media. It has also been widely-acclaimed by the scientific community, as indicated by the many scientific studies referenced in Nutranews. This research identified nicotinamide riboside as being particularly beneficial for improving age-related problems as well as for reducing the harmful effects of a high-fat diet.
In-depth examination of nicotinamide riboside has shown that it may be able to increase levels of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) in the body. NAD+ is known to be involved in several functions of cell metabolism, which is why it plays a role in many of the body’s reactions:
The fact that nicotinamide riboside can act as a precursor of NAD+ suggests it could play a role in burning fat. Indeed, NAD+ is essential for energy production in the body. An increase in NAD+ could thus promote calorie-burning and reduce the harmful effects of a high-fat diet.
Scientific studies suggest that nicotinamide riboside may increase the activity of certain sirtuin enzymes which play an essential role in cell metabolism. In particular, they improve metabolic function related to mitochondria, the cells’ powerhouses, as well as cells’ oxidative capacity. In influencing these enzymes’ activity, nicotinamide riboside could thus help improve metabolism and age-related problems. It is these effects which have earned nicotinamide riboside its moniker of ‘miracle molecule’ or natural anti-ageing aid.
As mentioned, nicotinamide riboside may improve the activity of mitochondria, essential elements in the body’s production of energy. Additional research suggests that nicotinamide riboside may also affect muscle efficiency and performance in endurance events.
In view of the growing scientific interest in this rare form of vitamin B3, our new supplement has been specially formulated to provide an optimal amount of nicotinamide riboside. It is therefore sold at a dosage of 125mg of nicotinamide riboside per capsule, with a suggested dose of two capsules a day, delivering the full benefits of this ‘miracle molecule’. This dose can, however, be adjusted according to your needs and the advice of your therapist.
To support the long-term fight against the effects of ageing, you may also be interested in other powerful, anti-ageing formulations, such as the innovative AMPK Booster which combines natural active principles able to reactivate a key enzyme in energy metabolism. There’s also our anti-ageing supplement Resveratrol Synergy which contains a selection of the very best antioxidants, molecules known for fighting premature ageing and oxidative stress.
