ENCORE: Nicotinamide Riboside (Niacel), Part 1


Nicotinamide riboside (Niacel) is a highly promising nutrient that promises to address a wide variety of health issues. Guy Daniels, Senior Product Specialist and Science Lead for Thorne Research, explains how nicotinamide riboside boosts NAD+, a key energy compound within the body. Its effects, like that of CoEnzyme Q10—ubiquinone—are also ubiquitous within the body, offering a wide spectrum of applications. Nicotinamide riboside is being researched at top research institutions worldwide for conditions as diverse as Alzheimer’s , stroke, traumatic brain injury, optic neuritis, MS, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, fatty liver, hearing loss, and as a general anti-aging compound with resveratrol-like effects. When taken regularly, it has the potential to boost energy and physical performance, making it a favorite of endurance athletes. Individuals suffering from energy deficits due to chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are likely to benefit. How much should you take? Are there any downsides or side effects?
