Has anybody tried NAD+ for energy ? What is the optimal dosage ? Which brand is best ?
By far the best way to increase NAD+ is Nicotinamide Riboside (Niagen), it is under patent so expensive. The optimal dose is about 300-400mg. I find it quite energising and so I can definitely recommend it. It kicks in within the first day so you should get a good idea pretty quickly. It is also probably the first proven anti-aging supplement and there is a lot of buzz around it. NAD and NADH are not absorbed and plain niacin will not raise NAD+ levels.
There are dozens and dozens of pages on this topic here. I suggest a more extensive search might be helpful. There was also at least one clinical trial if I recall correctly.
I took one niagen capsule yesterday morning and still feel like hell on earth
this is interesting... i'll expand on this in the future, but if cfs is a problem of reductive stress, an oxidizing supplement would be bad and vice versa... i forget if NAD+ is the oxidizing form, but your report of dramatic adverse effects is cautionary
Like many, I am very sensitive. I'm getting fed up of trying different things. Generally, I get all the side effects and none of the benefits so I think I will stop experimenting for a while and focus on reducing my reaction to stressfull l events, which definitely makes me ill!
