Adding Health to Years: A Holistic Approach to Healthy Aging

Every day, nearly 10,000 Americans reach their 65th birthdays–that’s roughly 3.7 million people per year. At the farther end of the age spectrum, octogenarians are now the fastest growing age bracket.

The need for effective strategies to mitigate senescence and promote optimal metabolic function into advanced age has never been greater.

NAD+ plays a fundamental role in cellular energy production, healthy mitochondrial function, and DNA repair. Many researchers consider it to be the master regulator of cellular metabolism. NAD+ also helps in coping with the effects of metabolic stressors and increased allostatic load associated with poor diet, chronic stress, and an unhealthy lifestyle.

Unfortunately, NAD+ levels decline drastically as we age. Nutritional strategies that bolster NAD+ and reinvigorate mitochondrial energy production are the key to averting many illnesses associated with aging.

Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is an NAD precursor that, when given as a supplement, is clinically proven to boost NAD levels safely and efficiently in humans.

Join Dr. Chris Meletis, a naturopathic physician, educator, international author and lecturer, to review science on nicotinamide riboside and its role in bolstering NAD+ production, supporting mitochondrial function, increasing cellular resilience, and ultimately, adding health to years.


Chris D. Meletis, ND is a naturopathic physician, educator, international author, and lecturer for 26 years.
