NAD+ Supplements Regulate Energy Metabolism via the Hypothalamus

Exogenous nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide regulates energy metabolism via hypothalamic Connexin 43. This study shows that administration of 1 mg/kg of LABELED NAD+ crosses the blood brain barrier to enter the hypothalamus INTACT, increases NAD+ levels, reduces hunger and weight gain, and increases energy expenditure and fat burning in mice. This study shows that increased NAD+ […]

Exogenous NAD+ Increases Metabolism

Effects of Chronic NAD Supplementation on Energy Metabolism and Diurnal Rhythm in Obese Mice In a study published in 2018, scientists gave obese mice 1 mg/kg of NAD+ by inter peritoneal injection for 4 weeks, which  restored NAD+ levels in the hypothalamus to normal levels. 1 The hypothalamus is the master regulator of metabolism.  Decreased levels […]
