The nutraceutical they are talking about is almost certainly either:
1. Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) which has been well researched for over 10
years and has recently become available as a supplement at http://lef.org
2. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) which is less well researched and
is not yet available as a supplement, AFAIK.
The research for both of these may be found by searching
http://pubmed.com for their names.
Much of such important research has also been collected on the research
page being prepared for my Live120Plus.com project website at:
The research to date on either of these is not sufficiently convincing
in my estimation that taking this supplement orally will definitely
cause an increase in health human longevity, but since both are
precursors of NAD already made in the human body, I do not think that
taking direct doses of either will do any harm. FWIW, I am currently
taking 130 mg daily of the LEF product #01904
The eventual home for *all* currently accessible, practically usable, scientifically evidential methods for increasing healthy longevity.
