Is Your Heart Getting Enough Energy? Without continuous energy production, it is estimated that the cardiac muscles will run out of ATP in 2 to 10 seconds. The heart requires monumental quantities of ATP. It pumps on average 103,680 times a day, with a sustained pulse of 72 beats per minute throughout 24-hours. The heart is perfusing the trillions of cells that comprise the human frame via approximately 60,000 miles of blood vessels.
Fueling the Heart for Optimal Performance allows for the delivery and uptake of the nutrients from our food, support from nutraceuticals, and therapeutics of medications.
This webinar will impart a much deeper appreciation of the clinical importance of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a molecule involved in more than 500 enzymatic reactions+.
Clinically Demonstrated to Dramatically Increase NAD Levels in Human Studies
An 8-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled parallel-arm trial investigated the kinetics and dose-dependent effects of daily Niagen® supplementation (100, 300, 1000 mg) in 140 healthy, overweight adults.
Results demonstrated that, on average, 300 mg/day experienced a statistically significant 51% increase in whole blood NAD+ within two weeks. This increase was maintained throughout the 8-week study. A 1000 mg/day dose led to a 142% increase in NAD+ levels, also sustained through the 8-week study.*
- Latest Research on the Role of Nicotinamide Riboside for Cardiac Health and NAD+ Production
- Clinical Testing to Monitor Energetic Pathways – Fatty Acid Oxidation, Glycolysis, etc.
- Strategic Ways to Fuel Mitochondrial Performance and ATP Production
- Role of Mitochondria in Steroidogenesis and Cortisol Production (related to inflammation)
All attendees will leave with clinical pearls rarely discussed, even in functional medicine.
