britmed saidIt's not actually bullshit research though anti-ageing may be a misnomer. IIRC the guy who carried out the original research had his publication and mechanistic theory (something to do with NAD+ regeneration) criticised. They recently found out it's true.
This stuff won't make you live forever, but could improve old age morbidity by reducing muscular atrophy.
karan_karan saidYes, it reversed inflammation and muscular atrophy.
So, only certain aspects of aging.
I understand that any study (especially those conducted on mice) need to be replicated , especially in humans, but dismissing it as BS is also premature.
I have accumulated some knowledge on this topic by studying scientific literature, sharing it:
NAD+ can be increased by taking supplements such as Nicotinamide Riboside. Also, CD38 inhibition can also help increase NAD+. CD38 inhibition is achieved by stuff such as C3G (present in blackberries) , luteolin and some other compounds. You can take supplements but bio-availability is a major issue. Also, dosage matters and one has to maintain levels through out the day as some of these compounds have a half life of a few hours.
