Biohacking Superhuman Performance

Jan 20, 2021

Dr Nichola Conlon from Nuchido talks about why simply taking NAD is not enough to solve your NAD deficiency.  Have you ever asked yourself why NAD levels go down as we age? After all, our cells are built to recycle NAD - so why on earth is everyone so deficient?  In this episode I dig deep into the issues of NAD deficiencies due to aging or disease and, TIME+  a supplement that may just provide the missing link in restoring youthful NAD levels.

Episode Notes:

4:51 All about Nichola, she looks 22 but definitely isn’t, she has an 11 year old daughter. What she got her PHD in and more about her background.

6:40 Nutrient transport and how it actually gets transferred into the cell

9:30 How drug companies go about creating a solution. Single target approach
