As we age, our body’s ability to produce NAD+ decreases. This reduction in anti-aging coenzymes creates a negative feedback loop that speeds up the aging process: When your body doesn’t produce enough NAD+ coenzymes, it will age faster, resulting in an increasingly reduced ability to produce the coenzymes.
NAD+ fights anti-aging in a number of ways. Two of the most important are increased serotonin levels, which help to alleviate the toll of stress on the body, and the rapid repair of damaged skill cells. When our cells are slow to recover, we may see the results of aging in the form of wrinkles or skin elasticity.
The NAD+ coenzyme also plays a critical role in muscle health. As we age, maintaining muscle mass is challenging, especially for women. NAD+ therapies have been shown to improve muscle function and post-workout recovery. When NAD+ is administered as an IV treatment, the muscles also benefit from the increased hydration.
