EP 175 – Impact and Optimise Your Longevity and Biological Age with NAD+

Dr Nichola Conlon, CEO and founder of Nuchido is a molecular biologist specialising in the study of cellular ageing. In this episode she talks to Angela about the vital molecule you’ve probably never heard of NAD+

With a critical role in the energy production for cells NAD+ levels are impacted by lifestyle and ageing but as Dr Nichola Conlon explains there are positive actions you can take to boost NAD+ levels and optimise your health and longevity to live your best life

Impact and Optimise Your Longevity and Biological Age with NAD+

Dr Nichola Conlon, CEO and founder of Nuchido is a molecular biologist specialising in the study of cellular ageing. In this episode she talks to Angela about the vital molecule you’ve probably never heard of NAD+

With a critical role in the energy production for cells NAD+ levels are impacted by lifestyle and ageing but as Dr Nichola Conlon explains there are positive actions you can take to boost NAD+ levels and optimise your health and longevity to live your best life  

Key Takeaways

  • The fluctuating levels of NAD+ control cellular maintenance and repair being switched on and off
  • Research indicates that NAD+ begins its decline from birth, by the time you reach twenty you have half the amount of energy in your tissues
  • Any level of fasting will help to increase your energy levels, when you fast AMPK is activated and up-regulates NAD+ levels
  • Creating energy stress through fasting, calorie restriction and exercise in the body positively impacts NAD+ levels
  • The salvage pathway recycles NAD+ for use again for repair and mitochondrial pathways but declines with age
  • All the benefits of exercise and fasting happen because they are increasing the function of the salvage pathways
  • Elevating NAD+  can help make some chronic illnesses significantly better
  • Biological age can be impacted by making simple lifestyle changes
  • Sirtuins  are at the top of the cascade that switches on many aspects of longevity and they are dependent on NAD+ as fuel to function
  • NAD+ is involved in regulating the circadian rhythm by switching on the pathways that impact the rhythm

Best Moments

‘I do all my exercise in a fasted state to prolong AMPK activation’

‘You are fundamentally altering the cells’ ability to make more NAD+ ‘

‘Our bodies aren’t designed to live in the way we are living today

‘If you want to make sense of ageing look at it from the perspective of evolution’
