Dr. Charles Brenner: Debunking Longevity Myths + Using NAD+ To Age BETTER

Dr. Charles Brenner: Debunking Longevity Myths + Using NAD+ To Age BETTER

What if we could slow down the physical aging process and age better, healthier, and stronger?

Thankfully, there is something we can start doing that will make a drastic impact: Boosting NAD+ in our bodies. 

NAD+ is a molecule found in every cell of your body that is involved in all cellular processes in your body, works to boost cellular repair, helps neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress, and so much more.

NAD+ levels naturally decline with age, and research suggests that this decline may contribute to age-related diseases. Hence, boosting NAD+ in the body helps to reverse aging at the cellular level.


In the latest episode of The Darin Olien Show, I sit down with Dr. Charles Brenner to explore the fascinating science around NAD+ supplementation for optimal health, no matter our age. We discuss the fact that there’s no one single hormone that extends lifespan, and the personal importance of staying physically capable to handle life’s challenges.

He also shares some fascinating new research on NAD+ supplementation for family health, treatment for heart failure, and helping speed up healing.

Dr. Charles Brenner is a research pioneer in the area of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD). NAD+ is vital in the creation of energy in every cell of your body and is intrinsic to the aging process. Dr. Brenner leads groundbreaking clinical trials on NAD+, focusing on its maternal and neonatal effects and translating animal model findings into safe, evidence-based clinical practices for human metabolic stress conditions.
