Nobel Prize “Energy Hack” Generates 8 Times More Stem Cells in the Brain, Gut, Muscles, and Skin

Sears, A. (n.d.). Nobel Prize “Energy Hack” Generates 8 Times More Stem Cells in the Brain, Gut, Muscles, and Skin. Al Sears MD. https://alsearsmd.clickfunnels.com/optin1601053312135?utm_campaign=mb_ph_ph_b_mito_awas_nad_20210309

Our brains, hearts, lungs, eyes, joints, you name it, no organ can survive without NAD+. Without it, we couldn’t live. But there’s a problem; as we age, NAD+ levels decline exponentially. From all the levels we need in our cells at age 30, enough to live happily, free of any health concerns, to at age 80, having less than 10% of the necessary levels in our cells, causing all sorts of unnecessary symptoms of aging in our brains and bodies. Fortunately for us, that’s not the end of the story. This article discusses how our body uses NAD+ and how you can use this hack to help your cells get this vital nutrient.
