NADH is a naturally occurring molecule known as an energy booster. It is an important part of human metabolism and is formed in many different organs and tissues.
What is NADH?
NADH is the abbreviation for Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Hydrogen. It is a small molecule composed of two nucleotides linked to a coenzyme. It is an important part of human metabolism and is formed in many different organs and tissues.
How does NADH work?
NADH is an important part of energy metabolism. It is required in the mitochondria, the cell's power plants, to produce energy in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). NADH is also involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters responsible for communication between nerve cells.
How is NADH absorbed?
NADH can be taken as a dietary supplement. It is also found in some foods such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy and nuts.
What Does Research Say About NADH?
The research results on NADH are promising. It has been shown that taking NADH increases energy production in the mitochondria and increases the concentration of neurotransmitters in the brain. NADH has also been shown to improve cognitive performance and mood.
After reviewing available research, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has approved an official health claim stating that taking NADH increases energy production in the mitochondria.
