    San Diego, CA — NECTAR7, LLC, is a San Diego based company that discovers, licenses and distributes life-enhancing, science-based nutrition and lifestyle nutraceuticals direct to consumers. Nicotinamide Riboside, which goes by the trade name Niagen® is the core ingredient in NECTAR7 Niagen®  and NECTAR7 Collagen & Niagen®.

    Mike D’Arcangelo is an 89-year-old World War II veteran who collects donations for his Veteran’s Post. He’s also a man who was able to chase down a 22-year-old who attempted to rob him.

    To understand how an 89-year-old can chase down a healthy 22-year-old, it is important to recognize the role this unique molecule plays in NAD+ as a cofactor in cellular respiration and energy production along with important DNA repair.

    NECTAR7 Biology 101

    The cellular respiration process of the mitochondria makes use of the coenzyme NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide). NAD+ is an essential metabolite in all human cells and plays a key role in metabolism. Unfortunately, levels of NAD+ are estimated to decrease by fifty percent every 20 years. Depleted NAD+ levels inhibit mitochondrial function and impact basic metabolism. The results are the visible signs of aging, diminished energy and declining health.

    Increase NAD+ Levels

    Nicotinamide Riboside or Niagen®, has been shown in a 2015 human trial to elevate NAD+ levels as much as 33% after a single serving within eight hours. Despite being nearly 90-years-old, Mike is elevating his NAD+ levels. He’s doing it by taking NECTAR7 Niagen® and NECTAR7 Collagen & Niagen® with Hyaluronic Acid.

    The core ingredient is currently being tested by over 62 leading institutions from around the world and is NSF Certified for Sport®. Dr. Charles Brenner, Head of Biochemistry at the University of Iowa, first discovered Nicotinamide Riboside (NR) to be a vital precursor to NAD+. By itself, Nicotinamide Riboside is not very useful, but when it binds with proteins, it creates NAD+. Today, Dr. Brenner continues his focus on NAD+ and its impact on the future of human health.

    Be Like Mike

    Mike is also defying his age with the help of NECTAR7’s Collagen & Niagen®. As a person ages, their body produces less and less collagen, much like the way it produces insufficient NAD+ levels. NECTAR7’s proprietary combination of Collagen and Niagen® with Hyaluronic Acid supports the body's ability to produce collagen for those seeking radiant, younger-looking skin as well as connective tissue and joints. It is currently unknown why humans produce less and less NAD+ and collagen over the years, but modern science and NECTAR7 are determined to find ageless solutions.

    Mike’s endurance and energy, mirroring that of someone 40 years younger, is similar to an NAD+ booster mice study done by Harvard Medical School professor, David Sinclair. The study showed that 60-year-old human equivalent mice attained muscle tissue resembling 20-year-olds after one week of injections with an NAD+ booster. NAD+ is the communication molecule between the cell nucleus and the energy producing mitochondria in the cell. Dr. Sinclair's study was published in the peer reviewed scientific journal, Cell.
