A recent clinical study reports that ENADA, a dietary supplement, provides relief for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).  ENADA, is the only patented, stabilized absorbable, oral form of NADH available.  NADH is a naturally occurring coenzyme involved with the body’s energy producing cycle.  The more NADH  a cell has the more energy it can produce.  ENADA is one of the first nutritional supplements to be tested using strict FDA guidelines to determine its safety and effectiveness.

   Below is an article, which appeared in the Washington NY times Syndicate on February 24, 1999, pertaining to the CFS study findings:

    “Supplement May Energize Some Chronic-fatigue Patients”  – A dietary supplement may benefit victims of chronic fatigue syndrome, researchers announced at a news conference here Tuesday.  “We’ve demonstrated a real benefit with NADH in this study”, said Dr. Joseph A. Bellanti of the Georgetown University School of Medicine, who led the study of chronic fatigue patients.  NADH is a compound found naturally in food that plays a central role in the process by which cells convert food into energy.  A poorly understood ailment, CFS symptoms afflict some 500,000 people nationwide, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta.  Doctors can only diagnose the disease by these symptoms, which includes headaches, body aches, poor concentration, sore throats and lethargy lasting at least six months.  Bellanti and his colleagues described the results of a three-month trial of NADH.  Of 26 patients given the supplement, eight reported significant lessening of their symptoms, compared with only two of 28 control patients who were taking a placebo.  Furthermore, 72 percent of patients in a follow-up study reported that their symptoms improved.

    Bellanti and his colleagues theorize that CFS is nothing more than al lack of the chemical adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which provides power to the body.  Chronic infections, stress, and other ailments tend to deplete the chemical, according to the researchers.  NADH, short for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is the chemical that jumpstarted the production of ATP in muscles, so the researchers hypothesized that simply providing supplements of the chemical might people with chronic fatigue.  Patients in the study received 10 milligrams of NADH a day.  “They may have stumbled onto something useful”, said Ronald Glazer, a virologist and immunologist at Ohio State University School of Medicine.  He argued that so little is currently available to treat the syndrome that CFS patients should consider taking the supplement now.

    Healthy individuals desiring more natural energy also benefit from taking ENADA – Over two thirds of the people take ENADA for overall energy enhancement as well as mental clarity.  ENADA has been sold in the U.S. since 1995 and tens of thousands of customers are taking ENADA for increased energy.  Consumer research indicated that 76% of consumers taking ENADA report improvement in their energy levels.  For more information on ENADA and the CFS Georgetown study visit their website at www.enada.com
