Nicotinamide riboside affects metabolism in rodents

NAD+ is considered indispensable for pathways governing our metabolic adaptations — how the body alters its efficiency at turning the food you eat into energy. In rodents, these processes can be modulated with NAD+ precursors. For example, oral NR supplementation promotes metabolic adaptation and induces cells to produce mitochondria in skeletal muscle. This is thought to occur, at least in part, by increasing the activity of longevity-linked proteins called sirtuins, which require NAD+ binding to function, to induce the production of mitochondria.
