(nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a metabolic co-enzyme which
continuously varies between the NAD and NADH compounds in the body.
Enzymes are responsible for every activity of life. There are two
primary classes of enzymes: digestive and metabolic. Metabolic enzymes
are responsible for the structuring, repair, and remodelling of every
cell, and the body is under a great daily burden to supply sufficient
enzymes for optimal health. Metabolic enzymes operate in every cell,
every organ and every tissue, and they need constant replenishment. NAD
plays an essential role in the production of ATP (Adenosine
triphosphate), the basic energy molecule in the body, and has more than
100 metabolic functions in our human biochemistry.
is a NAD Energy Deficiency?
human activities require energy. Research has indicated that 90% of our
physical energy must be made available from the biochemical processes
within our cells. Each cell in your body has a particular function that
needs energy to do its job. This energy is produced by various chemical
processes in the cells, in little “power plants”.
We refer to such power plants as the mitochondrion. Glucose is the fuel
for our power plants and is obtained from the food which we consume by
means of digestion. Most processes in a power plant which releases
energy however require a particular co-enzyme to produce energy.
Without the co-enzyme, the power plant will simply not function. NAD is
such a co-enzyme and it maintains the processes in all power plants.
When there is a deficiency in NAD, or too few power plants in the
cells, there will be a metabolic energy deficiency. This metabolic
energy deficiency is called a NAD Energy Deficiency (NED). This NED is
insufficient chemical energy for life and can be defined as the
physical state which develops when the body does not have enough NAD
molecules and accompanying energy metabolic cofactors to generate
enough metabolic energy on a cellular level to maintain the body in a
constant state of health. Such a NED can result in a wide spectrum of
NED related diseases. NED mostly manifests itself as chronic fatigue,
chronic fatigue syndrome, substance abuse, depression, stress, anxiety
and various other chronic illnesses.
NED (Irreversible and Chronic)
estimated that 10% of people suffer from an irreversible chronic NED.
Genetic and chronic NED is transferred from mother to child and is
already present at the moment of conception.
cell of the mother has a shortage of power plants. Her children inherit
no power plants from their father, because all of his power generators
are located in the tail of the sperm cell which is discarded during
conception. The daughter and son will therefore inherit an energy
deficiency, but the son may marry a woman who has enough power plants.
The problem therefore ends at that stage. The daughter, however, will
spread the problem. Ninety percent of persons get enough NAD from food
and can utilize it completely, because enough energy factories
(mitochondria) are available in cells. The 10% who suffer from NED,
will never be able to obtain enough NAD from food on its own. They will
have to use NAD as a nutritional dietary supplement if they want to
have a stable body with sufficient physical energy, which will make it
possible to enjoy a good quality life. Despite the teaching of biology
to millions of children and students, most people think of energy as
something mystical and out of the reach of ordinary man. They view the
restoration of energy, by applicable NAD supplementation, as
unthinkable and too simple a remedy for a long lasting and debilitating
problem affecting their whole being.
Therapy is a safe, natural energy supplement and generator of cellular
energy that may also help to:
benefit from NAD Therapy?
- Act as a
potent antioxidant and free-radical scavenger
use NADPH as a source of energy to destroy pathogens. The NAD(P)H, that
is available, is also used to protect the body against free radicals
and to, in this way, prevent illnesses and damage. NAD and niacin (a
precursor of NAD) play an important role in defending cells against DNA
damage by genotoxic particles.
mental clarity and alertness
The brain uses ten
times more NAD energy than any other organ.
mood and emotional balance
Derivatives of niacin,
mainly in the form of NAD and NADP coenzymes, are found abundantly in
brain tissue. NADH plays a role in the synthesis of the
neurotransmitters, i.e. noradrenaline and dopamine, which are important
for maintaining a positive state of mind.
NAD therapy can be of benefit to everyone, its use over a long period
of time is essential only for approximately 10% of persons, to ensure
that they can maintain their quality of life.
