Can you boost NAD from your diet?
Can you boost NAD from your diet? As we age, our levels of NAD (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) decline, which means we can’t produce as much cellular energy as we did when we were younger. The body doesn’t have an endless supply of NAD+ and you cannot get enough NAD from your diet to stop this decline in energy, even if you eat a perfect diet.
Why can’t I get enough NAD from my diet?
Milk is at the top of the list when it comes to foods that boost NAD levels naturally. But is it enough? …no, it is a long way short.
Research shows that you would need to drink 1000 glasses of milk to digest enough of the NAD precursors (Nicotinamide riboside) to produce the same amount of NAD as a supplement containing 250mg.
“In 2016, the University of Iowa published a study which measured how much of this NAD+ precursor is found in cow’s milk (1). It’s not a high amount versus supplement sources, but is high when compared to most foods.”
However it’s still a long way short .
“Based on an average of 4 unidentified brands of organic milk, the average nicotinamide riboside amount was 1.9 μmol per liter.
The average was 3.9 μmol per liter, across 4 types of milk tested
There are 33.81 ounces in a liter. If you do the math, it means an 8-ounce glass of milk will have 0.92 µmol and for organic, it will be 0.45 µmol.” ref
Not sure about you, but I’d rather take a supplement! That is why I choose the Sisel AGE Pill .
