What Is NAD?
It stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, a type of coenzyme found in humans, animals, yeast and basically all living things. Coenzymes are needed in the body to allow other enzymes to work.
A basic definition of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a cofactor found in all living cells.
It is involved in over 500 enzymatic reactions and countless biological processes. At a cellular level, NAD+ orchestrates DNA repair, cellular bioenergetics, and genomic signaling. Systemically, NAD+ protects metabolic function, reduces inflammation, and increases resilience to age-related disease.
Supplemental NAD+ is easily broken down in the gut, never reaching cells. NMN is a direct, stable precursor to NAD+ that rapidly repletes intracellular NAD+ levels, supporting whole-body health.
NMN – NMN is a direct precursor to NAD+, synthesized from vitamin B3 (nicotinamide). NMN is transported into cells via the Slc12a8 receptor and subsequently transformed into NAD+. NAD+ is a cofactor for sirtuins, proteins that regulate cellular health and aging. Supplemental NMN may support metabolic function, inflammatory balance, cognition, and healthy aging.
TMG – TMG is a methyl donor that facilitates the activity of NAD+. By providing methy groups, the interdependent NAD+ and methylation cycles are both supported and balanced.
NMN circulates in the body inside extracellular vesicles, membrane-derived particles with a phospholipid bilayer. A liposomal version of NMN may mimic the body’s natural NMN transport system, enhancing NMN uptake and delivery. Quicksilver Scientific’s liposomal technology delivers NMN in liposomes for easy absorption and rapid replenishment of cellular NAD+.
Take 2 pumps by mouth twice daily. Hold in mouth 30 seconds before swallowing. Repeat to the desired dosage. Take on an empty stomach, at least 10 minutes before meals.
