Can a Daily Supplement Really Support Healthy Aging?

With everything going on in the world and my new work-from-home life, I felt myself getting into a slump and was feeling super unhealthy. I tried my best to keep active. I started taking multivitamins, creating better sleeping habits, and drinking more water. But I had to face the facts; entering my 40's had slowed down my body, and nothing seemed to help.

Now more than ever, I wanted my health to be a priority. I was ready to give up looking for a solution, when my coworker, Jack, mentioned on a call that he had started taking something called Tru Niagen®.

He said he had noticed he noticed a shift after taking it for a month. I figured it was just another supplement relying on the placebo effect, but Jack was insistent that it made a huge difference for him.

I looked it up, and it turns out there actually is a lot of science behind it. Tru Niagen® contains an ingredient called nicotinamide riboside or NR. NR boosts NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) in our bodies, which is a vital resource for the cellular energy, repair, and resilience we need to keep our bodies healthy.

Increasing our NAD + helps our bodies' pool of cellular energy. It can also increase our resilience in times of physiological stress - and my body feels really stressed out right now.

But if NAD + was so vital, why hadn't I heard about it? Turns out, a body of science has been building behind NAD+. Our bodies naturally produce NAD+, but this process begins to slow down as we age. In fact, NAD+ levels decrease as much as 50% between the ages of 40 to 60. This made me think…

…That was around the age I feel like I noticed the decline in my energy levels, so maybe this was actually legit.

I kept reading and saw that there is extensive research behind it including 9 published clinical studies and 100+ preclinical studies, as well as 3 FDA safety notifications, 15+ owned and licensed patents, and 160+ research collaborations.

The discovery of nicotinamide riboside (NR) as a vitamin B3 by Dr. Charles Brenner tells us how to keep our bodies in top health, despite the amount of physiological stress that we face. Whether it be metabolic stress or other physiological stress we need our bodies functioning at their best capacity.

When I realized how much this was backed up by science, I thought it sounded more authentic than any other supplement I looked into, so I decided I'd try it. I signed up for the 3-month subscription at $35 per month, since it can take at least 2 months to start working from what I read. I liked that I wouldn't need to keep ordering or go to a store to pick them up. Once I had them delivered to my door, I took one capsule every morning. A week in, I still hadn't felt much different. I thought I'd bought into another useless supplement.

I debated whether to just stop taking them altogether, but I had already signed up for the three months, so I thought I might as well see them through. I kept taking them.

After a few weeks, I realized something - I was now getting more work done, being generally more productive, and able to work out so I felt as though I was sleeping better and feeling much healthier. The change was so subtle I didn't notice 'til I stopped to think about it.

As I continue to take Tru Niagen®, I feel more and more resilient and healthier overall. Plus, I have peace of mind knowing that I'm supporting my cellular health and energy. Thankfully, Tru Niagen® helped me feel more empowered in this scary time for my body. I'd recommend Tru Niagen® to anyone who would like to support their cellular health.
