NAD+ is sometimes referred to as the master regulator of cellular metabolism.
It is used by virtually every cell in the body, and NAD is directly involved in cellular metabolism, mitochondrial function, and ATP(energy) production. There is a chemical difference between NAD+ and NAD. NAD+ is the oxidized form of NAD while NADH is the reduced form of NAD. NAD+ is essential for mitochondrial function and DNA.
Sirtuin enzymes are protein deacetylases that are thought to play evolutionarily conserved roles in lifespan extension. NAD+ plays a key role in regulating Sirtuins and facilitates the messaging and exchange of information inside and outside of cells. Sirtuins may be the key to longevity through their control of gene expression and require NAD+ for their activity.
