Bio-NADH consists of white tablets, each containing 250 mg of niacin (a precursor of NADH) and 2 mg of NADH. The daily dose is three tablets. The product is developed by Pharma Nord and based on scientific research with this formulation. The tablets are slow release. The content of NADH lies in a special matrix. Upon contact with liquid, the matrix gradually releases the active substances, thereby reducing their contact with gastric acid.
The tablet is based on Finnish research that shows that slow release formulated niacin increases the body's NADH production.
NAD (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is a compound found within all living cells in the human body. It is classified as a coenzyme, which assists biochemical reactions in the body, for example the metabolism of food into energy (known as cellular respiration).
How does it work?
Nicotinic acid from food and supplements is converted in the body into its main metabolically active form, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD).
NAD has two main forms: NAD+ (known as the oxidized state) and NADH (known as the reduced state). NAD in either form plays a major role in the citric acid cycle and the electron transport chain that are key steps in respiration that occur in the mitochondria, also known as the cellular powerhouses. It is through this process that the body generates the energy it needs to function. The energy is stored in molecular form as ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
NAD+ is also used by specialist proteins in the cells known as sirtuins which, in turn, play an important role in various biochemical processes and cell functions.
NADH is the energy-rich form that supplies coenzyme Q10 with electrons.
NAD declines with age
NAD is produced in the body in different ways. It can be synthesized either from l-tryptophan (via the de novo synthesis pathway) or from vitamin B3 (nicotinamide or nicotinic acid, via the Preiss handler pathway).
Our natural NAD production declines with age because the two synthesis pathways become less efficient.
B vitamins such as vitamin B3 (niacin) are water-soluble and are generally absorbed comparatively quickly in the gut. Water-soluble nutrients are also lost as a result of diuretics such as caffeine and alcohol and by the use of diuretic medications that increase the body's water excretion. A slow-release formulation helps the compounds enter the blood-stream slowly, thereby allowing for a steady release that prevents excessive losses.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has evaluated the evidence behind niacin and has acknowledged the following claims:
- Contributes to normal functioning of the nervous system
- Contributes to normal psychlogical function
- Contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
