For more information on mitocondrial function and Nicotinamide Riboside (NR), listen to my podcast with Dr. Robert Rountree.
Nicotinamide Riboside (NR)
NR is the most direct precursor to nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). The mitochondria cannot perform their crucial cellular functions without a sufficient supply of NAD+. NR offers fundamental support for mitochondrial biogenesis, as well as all other mitochondrial activities – from energy production to the regulation of metabolism and cellular aging.
Resveratrol mimics the effect of calorie restriction by activating the sirtuin group of proteins. In one study, resveratrol was shown to be the most potent natural activator of the sirtuins. Resveratrol shows promise in helping attenuate the effects of several age-related conditions.
Research shows that quercetin not only acts as a potent antioxidant and is synergistic with the activities of resveratrol, it also slows the breakdown of resveratrol in the body. Like resveratrol, quercetin also enhances sirtuin activity.
Betaine – also known as trimethylglycine – is a premier methyl donor. In addition to providing significant methylation support because it can donate three methyl groups, betaine provides support for important metabolic functions that are associated with metabolic syndrome.
