Background & History

  • Discovered by Nobel Prize-winning British biochemists in 1906 

  • The availability of NAD+ has shown to promote DNA health and repair

  • NAD+ is required to deactivate genes that accelerate aging

  • Unfortunately, scientific studies show that NAD+ levels  decline significantly with age

  • Historically the most effective way to boost NAD+ was through expensive infusions; pills have been shown to be less effective

  • The NAD+ patch is a new method of delivery that is effective, less expensive and more convenient than other treatments

Longevity Benefits

  • Promotes cellular energy production 

  • Supports DNA health and repair

  • Required to “turn off” genes that accelerate degenerative aging processes

How it works on a cellular level in relation to aging

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is an important cofactor in all living cells, involved in fundamental biological processes including metabolism, cell signalling, gene expression, DNA repair, and more.


Systemic NAD+ decline is one of the fundamental molecular events that negatively impacts the process of aging, potentially limiting lifespan.

  • NAD+ is required for energy production through metabolism, and helps turn nutrients into energy - without NAD+, we cannot make energy. 

  • NAD+ is required for energy production in every tissue, including the brain, immune cells, muscles, and more.

  • It is a required “helper” molecule for proteins that regulate other cellular functions.

  • Availability of NAD+ in the body promotes DNA repair, while NAD+ decline is associated with accumulation of DNA damage.

  • NAD+ levels decrease across multiple types of tissues with age, a factor associated with many hallmarks of aging.


In 2013 a team of researchers broke down the causes of aging into 9 distinct scientific "hallmarks" (Aging Pathways) and explained how these interact with each other to drive the onset of age-related diseases.  ​

​Hallmarks Impacted by NAD​+

  • Genomic Instability

  • Epigenetic Alteration

  • Mitochondrial Dysfunction        

  • Cellular Senescence

"They focused on an intriguing compound with anti-aging properties called NAD+...It's been known that younger mice had more of it than older mice and back in 2013, the researchers found that when they boosted the NAD+ levels in older mice, they looked, biologically, like much younger animals." - TIME

Harvard Medical School Study Show NAD+ Boosting in Mice Decreased Aging


When NAD+ levels rise, Sirtuins are activated. Sirtuins are enzymes that influence aging and longevity. They regulate a variety of metabolic processes, including the release of insulin, stress response, and modulation of lifespan.

The David Sinclair lab at Harvard Medical school has done extensive research into the benefits of NAD+ on aging and age related-diseases. Read the Studies

DNA Repair

When damaged, DNA activates an enzyme known as PARP-1 that carries out DNA repair within cells. NAD+ is required for PARP-1 to be activated.

PARP-1 activity correlates with maximum lifespan in mammals. The higher the PARP-1 activity, the longer the lifespan.  Read Full Study

Cells from centenarians (people who are at least 100 years old) show significantly higher PARP-1 activity levels than those of average 70 year olds. 


  • Since extra niacinamide needs to be methylated in order to be excreted, there is a theoretical need for extra methyl donors when using NAD+. We recommend using trimethylglycine (TMG also known as betaine), 500 to 1000mg, either daily, or at least on the days when the NAD+ patch is used. TMG is easily obtainable on Amazon or any other vitamin retailer.
