How Supplementing With NMN Can Increase NAD levels, Energy, Reduce Inflammation, And Improve Insulin Resistance

NAD has been popping up everywhere, and for good reason. It’s a fundamental driver of our health and longevity, and we’re now learning how boosting NAD levels might offset and improve the effects of aging.

On today’s episode, I’m excited to talk to Dr. Andrew Salzman all about NAD—how it is a key component involved in mitochondrial production, and is a critical substrate for several enzymes, including sirtuins, which play key roles in healthy aging, weight management, metabolic syndrome, and metabolism. We kick off our conversation by talking about the hallmarks of aging and why dysregulated nutrient sensing is the most critical of these hallmarks.

We have four key nutrient sensing pathways in our bodies that work together to protect us from disease and abnormal aging: insulin and insulin signaling, mTOR, AMPK, and sirtuins. Dr. Salzman explains the key relationship between sirtuins and NAD, and how they work together to promote longevity. Unfortunately, NAD production decreases as we age, and that decline is associated with a subsequent decline in our health and vitality, along with all kinds of age-related diseases.

Luckily, the science is also clear that certain NAD precursors, including NMN and NR, can efficiently increase NAD levels. Dr. Salzman explains what differentiates these NAD precursors and why we should be more focused on NMN. Dr. Salzman and I also discuss Wonderfeel Youngr™ NMN, a supplement designed to support healthy aging and overall well-being.

Dr. Salzman talks about the key antioxidants and sirtuin activators in the formula that enhance the effects of NMN, and why that is so important for increasing NAD levels. We also get into diet and lifestyle strategies that increase NAD in the body—exercise, intermittent fasting, adequate sleep, and avoiding physical stressors like environmental toxins. 

I hope you’ll tune in to this fascinating conversation!
