WEBINAR: Catalyst for Living: Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD), Nicotinamide Riboside (NR), and Modern Health



Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and its requisite precursors have recently jumped straight from the lab into the vitality seekers’ limelight.

What is it about this old redox molecule that has captured the attention of modern medicine?

NAD has long been known to play a vital role in cellular energy production. In recent years, scientists have come to even greater appreciate the critical role that this essential co-enzyme plays in maintaining healthy mitochondrial function, activating DNA repair mechanisms, and helping to resist the effects of the many cellular stressors associated with the standard American lifestyle.

To date, nicotinamide riboside (NR) is the only NAD precursor that is clinically proven to be safe, well-tolerated, and efficacious in boosting NAD levels in humans.

Join Dr. James LaValle, clinical pharmacist, board-certified clinical nutritionist, and educator in integrative and precision, health and learn about these topics and more, including practical ways to evaluate and employ nicotinamide riboside to support the health of your patients. Joining Jim is Andrew Shao, PhD, Senior VP of Scientific & Regulatory Affairs for ChromaDex.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How cells use NAD to support health-span by rejuvenating natural energy production mechanisms and promoting cellular repair.
  • How to identify factors that disrupt NAD homeostasis and cause depletion of the NAD pool.
  • What published data exist today on modern NAD precursors, and their current regulatory status.
  • The clinical evidence and cellular benefits of increasing NAD with nicotinamide riboside (NR).
