I’ve been thinking about my obsessions (important and insignificant) throughout my life: My grades at school to my goals at work; the length of my hair to the size of my jeans; the balance in my checkbook to the health of my kids.
Now that I’m 71, I have one obsession that I consider paramount, and that’s MY HEALTH. No, I haven’t become a hypochondriac. As a matter of fact, I don’t like to complain when I’m under the weather! I simply want to take care of my body the best I can, so I can live a fit and healthy life for as long as possible. Don’t worry. I’m not going to lecture you about what I’m sure you already know: Eat the right foods, in the right combination; sleep the right amount of time, and exercise the right way. I’ll simply say that if you don’t live your life this way now, get with it and make it your way of life.
Instead, I want to share significant news about one of the most essential molecules we have in every single cell of our bodies, called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. NAD+ (that’s the easy way to remember it) is indispensable to life and vital to functions that ensure proper cellular energy metabolism. It makes it possible for our cells to convert the fats, proteins and carbohydrates we eat into the energy we need to stay in top shape. NAD+ also activates our “longevity” genes, which regulate cellular aging and the chemical and biological processes that help us maintain healthy and fit lives.
Unfortunately, our level of NAD+ substantially declines as our bodies slow down with age, even if we do cardio and weight-bearing exercises all week, consume a diet of nutritious whole foods, get adequate sleep, and stay away from smoking and drinking. Fortunately for you and me, a brilliant scientist has discovered that nicotinamide riboside (NR), a unique member of the vitamin B3 family also known as NIAGEN, will be converted to NAD+ in our body.
And, now I can rejuvenate my health, starting from within, with a dietary supplement called TRU NIAGEN. I have been taking TRU NIAGEN every single morning for the past 18 months, and I feel wonderful—from overall feelings of well-being to improved sleep quality and consistent energy. I can think of only a single time I’ve napped, too. It supports my desire to age the best I can! It’s like the premium fuel for my car, helping me to “run” smoothly every single day.
