Nicotinamide Riboside Powder

Nicotinamide riboside powder (NR) is a vitamin B3-metabolite that promotes healthy cellular metabolism. It is commonly found in fermented foods such as kombucha.

NR increases the levels of NAD+, a coenzyme that supports the cellular processes of energy production and repair. A high NAD+ content helps prevent oxidative stress and ensures the health of the cell’s DNA. NR can also improve cellular energy metabolism and boost metabolic function.

Studies have shown that NR can reduce systolic blood pressure. Nicotinamide riboside has also been shown to increase blood NAD+ by 2.7 times. NR has also been shown to reduce weight gain in mice.

Nicotinamide riboside is an important part of cellular energy metabolism and helps prevent the onset of age-related diseases. Nicotinamide riboside is especially helpful for people at risk for neurodegenerative disorders.

Nicotinamide riboside can prevent deterioration of brain cells and may promote healthy muscle aging. It also has anticancer properties. In addition, NR helps maintain healthy cardiovascular, metabolic and immune systems.

Nicotinamide riboside may be beneficial for people with high cholesterol. Researchers have also found that nicotinamide riboside supplementation can help with the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

Nicotinamide riboside powder is safe to take as long as it is taken at the right dose and is stored in a cool, dark place. However, some individuals experience mild gastric side effects. For this reason, NR supplementation should be considered in light of current medications.

Some NR products do not contain methyl donors, which are necessary to maximize NR’s benefits.
