Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) is a form of Vitamin B3 or Niacin. Your body converts NR into NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), a helper or coenzyme that is essential to many of your body’s biological processes, and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP).
The body uses these two coenzymes in many essential reactions including DNA repair, production of energy, and in regulating cell differentiation among many other functions.
NMN and NR are the most efficient and effective ways to boost NAD+ levels.
