What is NAD and why is it important to measure?
NAD is a coenzyme found in all living cells. It plays an essential role in many cellular processes such as repairing damaged DNA to prevent cancer, getting rid of aging (senescent) cells, mitochondrial function, regulation of sleep and immune response, and reduction of inflammation and free radicals. NAD catalyzes reactions for more than 500 enzymes, including those involved in the production of cellular energy (ATP). Deficient NAD levels are linked to the loss of function and vitality as well as many age-related diseases.
