The Fountain of Youth: How NAD+ Is Disrupting The Anti-Aging Process
The anti-aging industry is booming. It’s a $250 billion industry filled with everything from chemical peels to skin creams. And until now, scientists have yet to discover an anti-aging solution that had strong scientific findings to back it up. Fortunately, there’s hope on the horizon. In fact, a group of researchers found that nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+, could be the missing link.
David Sinclair, co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School, says “NAD+ is the closest we’ve gotten to the fountain of youth. It’s one of the most important molecules for life to exist, and without it, you’re dead in 30 seconds.”
You see, NAD+ is critical to several functions including the regulation of cellular aging and maintaining proper function in the entire body. And over time, levels of NAD+ levels diminish significantly. Researchers have found that replenishing NAD+ in older mice produces significant anti-aging effects. And in a study published in March 2017 in Science, Sinclair and his colleagues mixed an NAD+-boosting compound with water and gave it to a group of mice.
The results were nothing short of miraculous. Within mere hours, their NAD+ levels had risen exponentially. And after a week, the typical signs of aging in muscles and tissues had seemingly been reversed. In fact, researchers couldn’t tell the difference between a 4-month-old and a 2-year-old mouse!
Scientists are now using this promising research to achieve similar results in humans. In another study in November 2017 in Nature, a group of researchers found that in a randomized control trial (considered the most reliable in scientific research), people had similar results. For those that took a daily supplement with NAD+ precursors, their NAD+ levels were exponentially higher over a two-month period.
Sinclair himself takes an NAD+ booster. He says the hangovers and jet lag aren’t near what they used to be. His mental clarity and focus are better than they’ve been in years. Not to be outdone, his father takes it too. Sinclair adds: “He’s 78, and used to act like Eeyore. Now he’s going on six-day hikes and traveling around the world.”
Sinclair and his colleagues aren’t the only ones experimenting with NAD+. He plans on continuing his research through the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval process so this incredible research can be used to help people around the world. But until that happens, we won’t be able to directly take NAD+.
Infinite Age has found a solution. They are already selling a compound known to boost NAD+ levels. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, or NMN for short, is the main ingredient in Infinite Age’s flagship product. And by bringing NMN to the market as a supplement instead of a drug, Infinite Age isn’t required to undergo years of research and approval processes.
This means that you can experience the age-defying effects of NAD+ without waiting years for the FDA to approve the research that’s already helped thousands. The future looks bright for the anti-aging industry and NAD+ is the new face.
