  • The role of NAD+ metabolism in health and disease is of increased interest as the use of niacin (nicotinic acid) has emerged as a major therapy for treatment of hyperlipidemias and with the recognition that nicotinamide can protect tissues and NAD+ metabolism in a variety of disease states, including ischemia/reperfusion. In addition, a growing body of evidence supports the view that NAD+ metabolism regulates important biological effects, including lifespan. NAD+ exerts potent effects through… CONTINUE READING
