NAD and Green Rooibos – 30 Hardgel Capsules

A World First: NAD and Rooibos. Have you ever wished there was a way you could feel younger, or to slow down your ageing process? Now you don’t have to wish for your time machine or wish your next birthday could be skipped – scientists may have discovered a way for you to age healthier. The key to healthier ageing lies in an extraordinary naturally occurring coenzyme, or helper molecule, called Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide or NAD.

What is NAD

NAD is an essential coenzyme that is found in every living cell in our body.

  • It ensures that our cells function effectively
  • It is a crucial element for the reactions in your cells that keep you alive
  • It plays a vital role in energy metabolism and maintaining proper cell functioning – particularly the functioning of our mitochondria, the power plants in our cells that turn our food and oxygen into energy

To understand what NAD does, think of it as a waiter that picks up an electron from one table and drops it off at another. The simple act of shuffling electrons around helps your enzymes work, and those enzymes activate microscopic chemical reactions in your cells that keep them healthy and keep your whole body working.

Why is NAD so important?

Our cellular health depends on NAD. Without it, cells cannot function. It is an essential coenzyme to the human brain, blood and muscle health. It is also responsible for many cellular functions in our body and also contributes to greater longevity.

Some of these functions are:

  • Helps cells to produce energy from the food we consume daily
  • Protects the brain and cells from damaging oxidative stress, that can lead to cognitive decline
  • Helps maintain healthy circadian rhythms (sleep/wake cycle)

Our bodies produce NAD but ageing and stress causes the NAD levels to decline. Lower levels of NAD are also associated health challenges like:

  • Cellular ageing
  • Metabolic dysfunctions
  • Chronic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease and Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s

Why combine NAD with Green Rooibos extract?

Among other benefits Green Rooibos is high in antioxidants. Antioxidants have become well known for its benefits of free radical scavenging and the ability to help protect cells. Because of these benefits Annique combined these two amazing longevity boosting ingredients resulting in a combination product that has never been seen before.
NAD with Green Rooibos extract is a first in South Africa as well as in the world. There are NAD products available locally and internationally, but never before has a combination of these two power ingredients been made.

Benefit How does NAD help? What happens when NAD levels are low?
Helps support your circadian rhythm

The circadian rhythm determines your sleep-wake and hunger cycles. NAD plays an important part in our circadian rhythm, because it influences the body’s cycles, which regulate other physiological processes like metabolism, body temperature, digestion, hormone release and our cells’ ability to communicate with other cells.

NAD plays an important role in the communication link between our circadian rhythm and cell’s mitochondria. Mitochondria are the power plants in cells and are responsible for converting food into energy.

Long periods of disruption of the circadian rhythm (your sleep-wake and hunger cycles) lead to degenerative diseases. (For example, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Osteoporosis.
Assist with metabolic health NAD and the link with circadian rhythm are also important to maintain metabolic health. If our circadian rhythm is out of sync then the body will not regulate appetite as it should. It also affects when and how we burn energy for exercise and how glucose is transferred in our blood cells. Not looking after your metabolic health could lead to metabolic disorders like diabetes.
Help protect the brain NAD has shown to help improve memory loss. The human brain contains 1 billion cells and can perform 38 thousand-trillion operations per second. That much computational power requires a massive amount of energy. As we already know, energy comes from mitochondria. The brain needs well-functioning mitochondria in order to work properly. Low NAD levels can lead to mitochondrial dysfunction, which is associated with varying levels of cognitive decline from simple “brain fog” to diseases such as memory loss, concentration challenges, and even Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease
Assist with heart health

NAD levels have also been linked to the way in which our vascular system ages. NAD can benefit the functioning of our cardiovascular systems and assist with a reduction of inflammation. NAD has also shown that it can assist with:

  • the growth of new blood vessels
  • the maintenance of blood vessels
  • keeping the vascular system soft and supple.
If your vascular system is not kept healthy you could be at risk of a heart attack or other cardiovascular disorders and diseases.
Maintains healthy DNA

DNA repair is the most important factor for cell survival and cancer prevention.

NAD also activates sirtuins, which are responsible for the regulation of biological pathways, turn genes on and off and protect against age related decline.

Unhealthy DNA leads to cell dysfunction and cell death
