Many diseases and biological stressors disrupt NAD+ metabolism and are associated with low levels of NAD+, such as obesity, infection, alcohol consumption, and high blood pressure.
“These results suggest that NMN treatment functionally ameliorated or prevented exacerbation of heart failure in p32 cardiomyocyte–specific knockout mice, thereby prolonging their lifespan.”
“Overall, the present study may shed new light on novel strategies in which NAD+ boosting therapy, including NMN supplement and CD38 inhibition, may turn out to be a promising therapeutic measure to treat patients with hypertension.”
This study revealed a new technique to quickly, accurately, and inexpensively test blood NAD+ levels in humans to allow repeated testing throughout the day in clinical settings, and eventually at home.
Using this method, they were able to identify 6 different combinations of molecules that can be used to “reset” the age of cells to a youthful, healthy state.
