Nicotinamide riboside is a pyridine-nucleoside precursor to vitamin B3 andnicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. Nicotinamide riboside is produced by yeast and some mammals.
Nicotinamide riboside is a supplement that's only recently become available on the market. A 2013 review notes nicotinamide riboside has potential to increase insulin sensitivity, exercise endurance, and act as a nootropic.
The effects of nicotinamide riboside (NR) on insulin sensitivity, mitochondrial biogenesis and improving sirtuin function are truly unique. NR is the first molecule to possess an enviable triple action: anti-ageing, slimming, energising, and improves insulin sensitivity.
