NADH or (Reduced Nictinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is an active form of vitamin B3 also known as Niacin. NADH plays a critical role in the production of ATP (cellular energy). NADH is present in every cell in our body and helps to release energy from carbohydrate and fat.
NADH is produced naturally within our bodies, however certain situations may lead to our requirements not being met. In 2002 stabilised NADH was studied as a remedy for jet lag and the researchers concluded it was sucessful at preventing the sleepiness and cognitive decline associated with jet lag. Anecdotal evidence also suggests NADH may support those with chronic fatigue.
Supplementing stable NADH wasn't possible until around 15 years ago as keeping the product stable was commercially unviable. A US based company ENADA NADH were the first to form a patented stable product.
