I took the Jinfiniti Intracellular NAD finger prick blood test, found out my initial score was lower than I would like for health optimization. I started using the Accuri Vitality Boost NMN powder daily for 30 days and retested. The powder provided definite increases in my NAD score but more importantly I did feel a clear, solid uptick in energy and cognitive function.
Monitoring intracellular NAD levels has been revolutionary in my clinical practice. I strongly recommend to all my patients that struggle with low energy to get their intracellular NAD levels measured. The Jinfiniti NAD test is a game changer in my practice.

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is a necessary molecule for maintaining life. It is found inside every cell. NAD deficiency is involved in five out of the nine hallmarks of aging and can increase the risks of age-related diseases such as stroke, heart disease, diabetes, kidney, neurodegenerative and infectious diseases.
Proteostasis is the ability of a cell to make stable, functioning proteins.
Mitochondria generate energy in the form of the ATP molecule via the Krebs cycle and oxidative phosphorylation. These processes are called respiration and produce free radicals that can harm the cell. As we age our mitochondria become dysfunctional by producing less ATP and more free radicals.
NAD+ or NADH have also been used through different routes IV, subcutaneous & oral) to elevate NAD levels and treat certain diseases and health conditions.
NAD is constantly consumed by many enzymes. CD38, which is increased by inflammation and during aging, is the key enzyme that degrades NAD. Several supplements have been shown to efficiently inhibit CD38 activity in test tubes.
Certain supplements, diet and exercise can potentially increase the activities of NAD-synthesizing enzymes and thus elevate NAD levels. This strategy could be very useful when combined with NAD precursors.
