NAD is derived from Nicotinamide Riboside (NR). The levels of NAD in our body determine the speed of the aging process. In younger cells and tissues, the levels of NAD are higher. As a result, younger people tend to have better physical activity, cognitive function and potential for cell repair and regeneration. As we grow, the levels of NAD in our body start to decline. This is reflected in the form of slowed cognitive response, loss of memory and reduced agility.

If you want to remain youthful and enjoy a long and healthy life, then there are ways in which you can naturally enhance the levels of NAD in your body! 


Fasting is practiced in many religions throughout the world. In addition to its spiritual benefits, it turns out that fasting is also beneficial for our health. Fasting, or reducing your calorie intake is an excellent method for indirectly boosting the body’s NAD levels.


Nicotinamide Riboside Dietary Supplements 

Nicotinamide Riboside has recently been discovered in Vitamin B3. Research shows that our bodies can use NR to metabolise NAD+! Various studies have shown that NR supplements are beneficial in boosting the levels of NAD+ in the body.



Exercise is one of the easiest and most cost-effective methods for boosting NAD+ levels. When we exercise, our bodies need energy, which comes from NAD+.


Too Much Sunlight May Not Be Good! 

Research has shown that too much direct sunlight exposure can deplete the body of NAD+ levels. This is because our body uses NAD+ to repair cells which get damaged as a result of direct UV ray exposure from the sunlight.


Looking for foods which boost NAD Levels? Some of them include:

  • Dairy Milk
  • Fish
  • Mushrooms
  • Yeast
  • Green Vegetables
  • Whole Grains


All in all, NAD is the molecule which is responsible for carrying out virtually all the redox and metabolic reactions in the body. In addition, it is also involved in cell repair and slowing down the speed of ageing. If you want to remain youthful and healthy as you age, boost your NAD levels!
