NAD + Pterostilbene Anti Aging, Mimic Calorie Restriction Effects

July 16th, 2016

NAD + Pterostilbene formula expected to mimic calorie restriction anti aging effects:

A synergistic anti aging effect is expected from combining Nicotinamide Riboside and Pterostilbene.

Nicotinamide riboside represents an innovative advance to combat aging that functions via unique mechanisms not found in typical dietary supplements.
Nicotinamide riboside has been documented to help replenish cellular NAD+ and in the process:

  • Promote sirtuin (SIRT1 and SIRT3) gene activation,
  • Enhance growth and efficiency of mitochondria—supporting energy levels and physical performance,
  • Contribute to neuronal health—supporting cognitive function during aging,
  • Promote insulin sensitivity—supporting healthy blood sugar levels in those within the normal range

Pterostilbene is similar in structure to the anti-aging compound resveratrol, but is more bioavailable and preliminary research indicates that in some ways, it may be even more beneficial. Preliminary research shows that pterostilbene may help with healthy cognitive function and may support glucose levels already in a normal range. Emerging science indicates that it may also help support healthy blood lipid levels and a healthy inflammation response.

Top Enzyme Supplements

April 12th, 2016
  1. Ubiquinol & PQQ
    QH is the reduced (active antioxidant) state of Co-Q10, the form produced by our cells. It is significantly better absorbed than ubiquinone. PQQ with QH promotes the creation of new mitochondria, a process known as mitochondrial biogenesis.
  2. Coenzyme Q10
    CoQ10 is a nutrient that supports heart function and promotes energy production in cells.
  3. Proteolytic Enzymes
    Proteolytic enzymes function in the body to digest and break down proteins into their amino acid components. Studies show that various proteolytic enzymes are absorbed through the gut wall into circulation.
  4. Digestive Enzymes
    Blend of enzymes active in a broad pH range to aid in food digestion.
  5. Dairy Enzymes
    Blend of enzymes that is formulated to aid in the digestion of dairy products. Great in combination with dairy based protein supplements.
