One of the reasons that we promote the supplement line that we do in Superhumn is these are things that not only are going to benefit you, but they’re going to benefit your children as well, too.
And why this is so important to be looking at now is because your health today and your children’s health today is foundational to where their health is going to be tomorrow, a year from now, five years from now, 20 years from now. So again, you want to get into this proactive mindset when it comes to your health and wellbeing. We’re all born and we’re all designed to be healthy. It is usually the process of living life and making sometimes poor decisions or just not knowing what the right decisions are to make that lead us to this path where ultimately we start to decay and degenerate and break down. Okay, biologically speaking, we are kind of designed to break down, but we’re now in an era where we are learning how to crack the code and change those biological things.
Some of the supplements that we promote literally are things that are turning around the clock on what we would associate with things that at one time we associated with just inevitabilities of aging. I’ll give you an example. One of our products, specifically with our longevity product, has a supplement in there called nicotinamide riboside. That’s the only time you’re going to hear me say that in this video. We just call it NR, and now you understand why we call it NR. So NR is a precursor to another product that is in our body, which is called NAD, which is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Again, the only time I’m going to mention that big chemical word. Everything that is alive utilizes NAD. Literally every plant, every animal would not be alive without NAD. It is actually an oxidized form of vitamin B3.
Vitamin B3 is an essential nutrient. If you don’t have vitamin B3 you’re not alive right now. And if you don’t have specifically NAD, we actually don’t know of anything that can live without NAD. It is part of the Krebs cycle. We won’t go back to high school biology right now, and your Krebs cycle to put it simply is a way that, on a cellular level, your body produces energy. Well, one of the things that happen biologically in our species, our human species, is as we age our NAD levels go through this process of they become more and more reduced in our body.
Ultimately, since NAD produces energy on a cellular level, everything that utilizes energy suffers. Many of the things that we associate with aging are literally just a result of NAD levels going down in your body. Science tells us that healthy 40 year old have about 40 to 60% fewer NAD levels than they had when they were in their twenties. Now you take it away that healthy part and somebody who is sick and stressed out, they’re going to have even lower amounts of NAD. But NAD is critical for your immune system. It’s critical for our DNA repair. It’s critical for your body’s ability to heal and regenerate. All those things I just mentioned are very energy needy in your body. So this is one of the reasons that when we’re young and we have high NAD levels, we can throw a lot of stress and physical stress and trauma, and maybe even sickness, and really recover quite easily because our NAD levels are there to do that.
But as we age, our NAD levels go down and your body stops using that NAD for all those healing and regenerating components and utilizes them for all the other essential things it needs just to keep you alive.
Taking NR can boost your NAD levels, research shows about 30 to 40%, which is pretty significant. Now there are other ways, and there’re other courses that I teach that you can really exponentially increase your NAD levels now. So this is just one of the aspects of how science and technology are finding solutions to the things that we associate with aging. There are other problems that are creating aging processes in the body as well too. Some of these things, we have the science now to help with, some of these things they’re not there yet, but the scientists know that there are solutions to these problems, which is another reason I’m going to emphasize to you.
It’s so important to take care of yourself today. You know why it’s important to take care of yourself today, because five years from now, there’s going to be a new technology that’s going to even help you more with reversing aging processes in the body. And guess what? Ten years from now, there’s even going to be more technology. Technology is exponential, so it’s not linear in terms of the progress that we’re making. It’s literally exponential the way that your computer today is a thousand times more powerful than a computer was 10 years ago.
This is the way technology is moving. This is particularly the way right now technology is moving of longevity. I’m telling you, we are just scratching the surface on all these technologies that are coming. I speak at these conferences. I know these PhDs who are doing the science and the research on this. We are in the era now of regenerative medicine, of anti-aging, of reversing these aging processes, but it is always foundational. You have to take care of yourself to enjoy these technologies and get the benefits of these technologies, not just the ones that are here today, but the technologies that are going to be here a year from now, five years from now, 20 years from now.
