NADH or N.A.D.H (an abbreviation for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride), also known as Coenzyme 1 is a very versatile and important nutrient. Professor Jorg (George) Birkmayer is the world expert on the subject, and we obtain it directly from his company.
Please note, this is a fairly high strength 20mg per tablet NADH product. Most NADH products on the market are 5-10mg.
NADH is the biological form of hydrogen. It reacts with the oxygen present in every living cell, thus producing energy and water. The more NADH a cell has available, the more energy it can produce, the better it functions and the longer the cell (and the entire organism) lives.
Though NADH is present in our foods, we take in only marginal amounts of it from our daily diet. Most of the NADH is destroyed during the cooking process. Is it possible to increase the amount of NADH in the cell by adding NADH from outside? The answer is yes. This suggests that we can increase the energy levels in our cells. Due to this fact, the cells can produce more of all the components essential for life, and thus they will function better and live longer. This is feasible by supplementation with NADH in order to boost the hydrogen taken in by the human body.
The amount of NADH a cell contains depends on the amount of energy it requires. The heart and the brain need the most energy of all our organs, thus these organs benefit the most from an external supply of NADH. All other organs, particularly the lungs, the liver and the kidneys, also get more energy from NADH and function better. Biological hydrogen is the fuel for cellular energy production and nutritional supplementation can provide our body with more NADH.
What is NADH made from?
Dr. Richard Passwater, biochemist and expert on antioxidants in the USA, writes in the foreword of the book NADH—The Energizing Coenzyme (written by Professor George Birkmayer) that: “While there is no such thing as a singularly ‘most important’ compound in the body, or even a ‘most important antioxidant’, NADH comes as close as a single compound can. NADH is both the primary coenzyme that drives reduction and oxidation reactions in cellular metabolism and the most powerful antioxidant.”
NADH is made from reactions involving Nicotinamide (Vitamin B3). Their process is proprietary and the manufacturers do not disclose the methodology even to us.
1 capsule provides 20mg NADH (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Hydride)
Bulking agent (Maltodextrin), NADH, Anti-caking agent Magnesium Stearate, Delayed Release Vegan Capsule (HPMC)
Delayed Release Capsule
Please note this is "delayed release" not "slow release", and we do not provide a "slow release" NADH product. The reason it is delayed release is because NADH is destroyed by stomach acid, so must be taken sublingually or in a DR (delayed release) capsule which will open in the small intestine and not in the stomach. The capsules used by our manufacturer have passed a disintegration test at very high acidity levels, and at 37 celcius (the normal temperature of the stomach) demonstrating that capsules are not broken down by the hydrochloric acid of the stomach.
Is Our NADH stable, and does it genuinely contain NADH?
There is considerable, and valid concern about whether products in general, and NADH in particular, contain what they say on the tin. "Which" magazine recently did a survey of health supplements and found a number of the companies (usually the ones who sell cheap rubbish) did not contain the amount stated in their products. Before releasing our own product, we felt it was critical to ensure that any product bearing our label did contain the amount we are claiming. So we spent good money getting own own Certificate of Analysis done from an accredited testing lab, prior to making our own label product available on our web site. The result was that it was found to actually slightly exceed the quantity stated on the label, at 23mg per capsule. We are therefore confident that this is a quality product.
