Supports energy, cognitive function, and healthy aging*
Thorne's Niacel (Nicotinamide Riboside) increases mitochondrial biogenesis and NAD+ levels, which decline as we age.* It also provides neurological, metabolic, and muscle endurance support.*
The body makes its energy from ATP that is produced by cell mitochondria through reactions in the citric acid (or Krebs) cycle and the electron transport chain. A key component in both processes is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+). That's where nicotinamide riboside (NR) comes in. Research has demonstrated that NR, the active ingredient in NiaCel-250, is a direct precursor to NAD+.* Adequate amounts of NAD+ improves mitochondrial energetics in the heart and elsewhere and boosts production of energy-creating ATP, which provides support for endurance athletes and fatigued individuals.* In addition, NR supports NAD+ as a critical substrate for the sirtuin enzymes, which play key roles in healthy aging, cognitive function, weight management, metabolic syndrome, and lipid metabolism in the liver.*
NiaCel is Niagen nicotinamide riboside, a unique and patented molecule comprised of nicotinamide reacted with ribose. But taking this compound is not the same thing as taking niacin or niacinamide (vitamin B3).
