Hello! Time for another round of Fun Fact Friday! Today’s fact comes from our recent NADH study on the anti-aging benefits of taking NADH supplements. 
A common question we get is can NADH be considered an anti­-aging nutrient?

From our studies we can say: Yes, NADH has significant anti‐aging potential. As we age, the NADH and energy levels in our cells decrease. In other words, aging is loss of energy. When cellular energy declines below a certain threshold, cells in our bodies begin to slowly deteriorate and tissue begins to degenerate. This energy loss can also signal the beginning of more serious illnesses later in life.

 
There is growing evidence that a lack of cellular energy may accelerate the aging process, ultimately resulting in degenerative conditions. Conversely, if the cell is producing adequate energy, it can continue to perform all of its processes more efficiently. The more NADH a cell has available, the more energy it will produce and the longer it will continue to properly function. NADH’s further anti‐aging potential is derived from the fact that NADH is one of the strongest, most powerful biological antioxidants and, therefore, helps protect cells from damaging agents and free radicals that can age the body.
 

The health implications are immense – if cells live longer, then organs live longer, hence NADH has a scientifically proven anti-aging effect!

Welcome to another Fact Friday! Let’s spend this Fact Friday getting to know why ENADA is the right choice fro your NADH supplement needs.

After 20 years we here at ENADA carry the world’s first and only form of NADH that is food grade, stabilized and protected by world patents! Food grade means its is the only NADH supplements that is considered safe for use in food by the Food and Drug Administration.

 

Other companies continue to try to bypass these patents and introduce false NADH products. However un-stabilized NADH degrades rapidly under the influence of light, humidity, temperature, and other factors. When these other products are subjected to independent laboratory analysis, the majority of these products do not meet label claims of NADH content. This deceives consumers and leaves the impression that NADH is ineffective. If a NADH product is not stabilized, you are wasting your time and money. NADH was discovered in 1905 and Enada researchers spent a lifetime overcoming the stabilization obstacles and released his research and formula exclusively with the Enada brand of NADH which has been used in most studies involving NADH over the past 20 years.


Benefits of stabilized NADH Include:·         Natural and non-stimulant energy provider (no jitteriness)
·         Staying on task after sleep deprivation
·         Helps with Travel fatigue and Jet Lag
·         Improves Cognitive Performance
·         Relieves Drowsiness
·         Improves Stamina
·         So much more!

After 20 years stabilized Enada has an overwhelming amount of feedback and testimonials. These testimonials are listed on the blog HERE and website here: https://enadh.com/category/testimonials/ as well as a review section on each of the products on the retail website www.co-e1.com/shop

Fact Friday!

It’s that time again! You see all our posts about Natural Energy, but what does that even mean? Here are the answers to some very commonly asked questions!

Q. How does my energy depend on NADH

A. The billions of cells that form the human body have the important assignment of producing energy. If our cells slow down or decline in their energy production, the result is that we are tired and can increasingly experience greater overall fatigue. NADH is part of every living cell. Inside each cell a process known as the Krebs cycle combines NADH with Hydrogen to form ATP, your body’s own energy. 

Q. How does the body produce energy? 

A.  Bringing hydrogen and oxygen together is one of the most efficient ways to produce energy. A rocket launched into outer space is an example of energy production. All cells in our bodies use the same principle of energy production, but they do so in a sophisticated way to conserve the energy produced. NADH is the biological form of hydrogen that reacts with the oxygen we breathe in to form energy and water. The energy‐ producing process in cells is achieved by a cascade of reactions, which lead to the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy‐containing compound in cells. One molecule of NADH will form three times the amount of ATP. Therefore, NADH is an extremely efficient and effective energy producer. 

Q. How does the body store energy?  

A.  Living cells have the capability to store energy in the form of chemical compounds. When these compounds are metabolized, energy is released and used for all cellular processes. Only a few biological substances display all the features of energy‐rich compounds. The most important of these are adenosine triphosphate (ATP), creatine phosphate (CP), nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride (NADH), and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate hydride (NADPH). 

Q. Is ATP the most common “energy­rich” compound in our bodies?  

A.  Yes, ATP serves as the most common and convenient chemical form of energy stored in every cell. It’s kind of like a biological battery that stores and releases energy when the body needs it. When cellular energy is required, ATP is broken down under the action of water to release energy for other processes. As already mentioned, NADH is a very efficient producer of ATP. 

Q. Is NADH also an “energy­rich” compound?  

A.  Yes, energy is stored in the NADH molecule. When NADH reacts with the oxygen present in every cell, energy is produced in the form of ATP. One NADH molecule leads to the formation of three ATP molecules. In other words, NADH has triple the energy capacity of ATP. Furthermore, NADH creates additional energy when it reacts with oxygen and water forming nicotinamide (also known as vitamin B3) and ADP (adenosine diphosphate). This all means that NADH is a super energizer.

Fun Fact Friday! Q&A



We get a lot of questions about our products, so here is a quick Q & A session to answer our most asked questions about NADH products.

Q. Are there any side effects from NADH?

Since the introduction of NADH in the early 1990s, the safety of NADH continues to be supported by several types of clinical data. First, the PDA approved two human clinical trials and any side effects found in these trials were required to be fully documented. The results of these trials were that not a single side effect was reported. In addition, more than three thousand patients have received stabilized NADH for treatment of therapeutic conditions since the late 1980s. No side effects have been observed in these patients. It’s also important to know that hundreds of thousands of consumers have taken NADH since it was made available in health food stores and pharmacies in the United States more than four years ago, and consumers have reported no significant side effects.

Q. Can I take NADH with medication?

Yes, you can take NADH with medication, including the most common antihypertensive, antidepressant, and antihistaminic drugs. In one of the PDA‐approved clinical trials, many patients were on antihypertensive and/or anti‐depressive and/or antihistaminic drugs. No interference was observed with these medications. However, be sure to check with your health care professional for his or her advice.

Q. When is the best time to take NADH?

The best time to take NADH is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before any food, drugs, or other supplements, with a glass of water. The NADH tablets are enteric coated and are designed to bypass the stomach and “float” with water into the intestine where absorption takes place. If you need additional energy for the late afternoon or evening, you can also take an additional NADH tablet either thirty minutes before lunch or about two hours after lunch, and again, at least thirty minutes before a late afternoon snack or an early dinner. It is important that NADH is taken on an empty stomach so it can easily “flush” or move into the intestines where it is absorbed.

However, the ENADA MOJO and MOJO Plus tablets can be taken any time, regardless of when you last ate.

Q. How soon should I expect to see results with NADH?

The answer to this question varies according to the individual. Each of us has a very unique biochemistry: Our bodies absorb food and nutrients differently, and our metabolisms often differ in other dramatic ways. On average, optimal effectiveness is shown in four weeks of continuous usage. However, many healthy individuals report an improvement in energy levels within five to ten days. NADH must enter the billions of cell structures for energy production to begin, so first‐time users may need to be patient before seeing beneficial results.

Q. How long can I take NADH?

For normal healthy people who are taking NADH for increased daily energy and mental clarity, optimal effectiveness is achieved within one month of continuous usage. One month, therefore, is the minimum time period to take the product. After one month of continuous usage, normal healthy individuals who supplement with NADH for energy can try using it on an every‐other‐day basis.

However, it is best to take NADH daily. Research suggests that NADH can be taken safely for long periods of time. Many people have been taking NADH for several years with no side effects reported. The body is in a continuous state of refueling itself with cellular energy and NADH is a very efficient cellular energizer. So, the more NADH

the body has available, the more the body will use to produce more energy. If you are taking NADH therapeutically, continuous daily usage is recommended. However, it is always best to check with your healthcare provider to help monitor long‐term usage of any supplement.


We will be doing more Q&A post in the future. If you have any questions make sure to comment or submit one here!

Fact Friday! NADH Why?

http://www.flickr.com/photos/upholds/991317849/


If you could take a natural substance that occurs in every single cell to increase your overall energy, would you? 

 

If you could take a natural substance that boosts the immune system and protects your cells from damage, would you? 

http://www.flickr.com/photos/anvrecife/4397048396/


If you could take a natural substance that enhances your cognitive capability and improve your memory, would you?

Good news: you can. There is a natural biological substance that offers these benefits and many more. This substance is NADH, the abbreviation for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide with high‐energy hydrogen. NADH is also known as coenzyme 1, scientific research and physicians’ experience shows that it has a profoundly important effect to keep you healthy and energetic.

So what exactly is NADH? It is a naturally‐occurring and vital compound found in ALL living cells of plants, animals, and humans. It is essential for adequate energy, and supplementation can improve energy levels. The human body carries on many important functions or activities at the same time.

All of these activities require cellular energy production. The memory, immune system, and even the DNA repair system are dependent on the proper production of cellular energy. NADH has also been proven to increase energy, as well as act as an anti-­aging nutrient, enhances memory and is the body’s top antioxidant.

ENADA is the only brand of NADH currently available that is stabilized and is actually protected by several worldwide patents. Competitors continue to try to bypass these patents and introduce NADH products. However, all these products are non‐stabilized forms of NADH. When subjected to independent laboratory analysis and validation, the majority of these products do not contain any NADH. The result of the absence of NADH in these products hurts consumers and leaves the impression that NADH is ineffective. 

For those customers who desire immediate effects, we have recently added another supplement to our collection. ENADA MOJO is fast‐acting and designed for demanding and active lifestyles. It has been carefully crafted without the enteric coating of the other ENADA pill, thus can be taken at any time, regardless of when you last ate. Also ENADA MOJO comes in 10mg and 20mg doses, so you can tackle that last mile or extra work hours with energy and integrity.

So now you’re probably wondering which supplement is right for you. Well, it depends on what
results you are looking for. If you have an active, busy lifestyle and require more energy in less
time, then the MOJO tablets are most likely best for you. The 10mg tablets are for people who desire quick energy, but aren’t doing anything extreme, such as intense physical exertion. These are best for the everyday person with everyday tasks at hand. The 20mg tablets are for those that exert a lot of physical effort or are in need of constant energy throughout the day. This may be a triathlete before and during his or her race, or an executive with days constantly full of meetings and negotiations. Simply put, the 20mg is just a more intense than the 10mg, so based on the amount of energy you need, you can decide which supplement is right for you. 


If you are taking ENADA supplements for health purposes, the 5mg tablets are for you. These ones are taken daily, in the morning, and have a slower effect as they are dissolved in the lower intestine. 

Today’s fact Friday is all about you athletes out there. We did a post earlier in the week about Olympian Shevon Stoddart, she takes Co-E1 Mojo for energy and muscle recovery. Did you know that NADH is essential for giving athletes their clean energy and a natural push. 
 
NADH is a co-enzyme, which simply means it helps other enzymes carry out biological functions. It is considered by many researchers and scientists to be the most important co-enzyme in humans. We have mentioned here on the blog numerous ways that NADH supplementation can improve function in humans, but for this weeks fact Friday we will highlight its effects on athletic performance. 
 
NADH and Cognitive Ability (Being athletically smart).
Cognitive function and athletic performance’s relationship is extremely underestimated. One third of all the energy produced in our body is used up by our brain. An energy deficiency is first realized in the brain with symptoms such as lack of concentration and alertness, or mental fog. 
How does NADH provide the brain with more energy? 
 
The energy within our bodies is produced when hydrogen and oxygen react to form water and energy. NADH is the biological form of hydrogen present in our cells and oxygen comes from the air we breathe. The energy produced from this reaction is stored as a chemical compound, ATP (adenosine triphosphate).
If you had a deficiency in oxygen there would be major problems, well NADH is the other side of that equation: No oxygen- no ATP. No hydrogen- no ATP. No ATP- no energy. Pretty simple right! 
NADH and Athletic Performance 
 
Researchers have been looking at NADH’s  applications for athletic performance. Physiologic functions boosted by NADH could have beneficial effects for athletes. Research conducted by Enada and colleagues ( International Journal of Sports Medicine 1996) on competitive athletes does indicate that NADH enhances work capacity. Researchers measured reaction times, physical performance and performance quality in 17 competitive cyclists and long-distance runners. Physical performance was measured on a bicycle ergometer. Performance quality was determined by measurements of continuous attention.
 
Athletes underwent these tests both before and after taking 5 mg of NADH before breakfast each morning for four weeks. During the test period, subjects kept constant the frequency and intensity of their training and exercise program as well as lifestyle factors. After four weeks of NADH supplementation, the athletes experienced significantly less scattering of reaction times-it dropped by 10 percent in five athletes, 10 to 20 percent in eight athletes, and more than 20 percent in three athletes. Reaction time overall improved considerably in 16 out of the 17 subjects.
 
. For two athletes, the maximum work performance (work at max per kg/body weight) increased by more than 10 percent, with another seven showing increases of up to 10 percent. Similar improvements were made in maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max/kg).
 
Researchers hypothesized that improved reaction times may have resulted from prior NADH deficiency in some athletes or an increase in dopamine production that led to increased alertness and vigilance. The latter explanation is further supported by studies wherein NADH supplementation increased dopamine production in rats. The researchers went on to say that stimulation of cellular ATP production by NADH may have enhanced, athletic performance- more NADH a cell has available, the more energy it can produce. Conversely, an NADH deficiency results in reduced strength, power and performance. 
 
In addition to improving athletic performance via ATP production NAHD has also been shown to increase L-Dopa production and Nitric Oxide production.
 
Why do care if NADH increases L-Dopa production? 
 
Numerous reasons- but in this conversation it is specifically utilized to stimulate Growth Hormone release from the pituitary gland. 
 
NADH triggers the activation of tyrosine-hydroxylase. Tyrosine hydroxylase or tyrosine 3-monooxygenase is the enzyme responsible for catalyzing the conversion of the amino acid L-Tyrosine (an ingredient in Cabergolean) to L-Dopa. L-Dopa has been shown in numerous studies to be an effective compound for the stimulation of GH release by the pituitary gland. Growth Hormone has been shown in numerous studies to (among other functions) stimulate IGF production, which in turn creates new muscle cells through differentiation and proliferation.
Athletes know that Nitric Oxide is a valuable part of their success because it’s responsible for blood flow, oxygen delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity, power output, and muscle growth.
Increasing Nitric Oxide levels can deliver continuous muscle benefits such as:
· Faster gains in lean mass
· Greater strength
· Providing better muscle recovery
· Increasing endurance
