Sponsored Satellite Program: Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD) in Human Health and Disease: The State of the Science on Nutrition Interventions
Sponsored By: ChromaDex
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), is a ubiquitous compound present in every cell in the body. Essential for mitochondrial function, NAD+ plays a central role in cells’ energy production, regulates enzymes involved in DNA repair, redox, metabolism and cell senescence. A large body of preclinical and clinical evidence demonstrates that various physiologic stresses can deplete cells’ NAD+ pool, leaving the body more susceptible to several conditions and diseases, including viral infection. A growing body of evidence indicates that NAD+ precursors obtained through the diet or via supplementation can raise NAD+ levels in cells and tissues, stemming the stress-induced decline, and potentially providing functional benefits. This session will provide an overview of the most recent data generated on the role of NAD+ in human health and disease, and review the most current science around the efficacy and safety of available NAD+ precursors.
This Sponsored Satellite Program was presented at NUTRITION 2020 LIVE ONLINE.
- Describe the latest findings on NAD and human health and disease and how maintaining or raising NAD levels contributes to resilience.
- Discuss the available literature demonstrating the effect of dietary NAD precursors on NAD levels and health outcomes.
