NAD refers to  Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, found in all living cells, NAD with the CAS NO. of 53-84-9 and the chemical  formula of C21H27N7O14P2 is called a dinucleotide because it consists of two nucleotides joined through their phosphate groups. One nucleotide contains an adenine nucleobase and the other nicotinamide NAD exists in two forms: an oxidized and reduced form, abbreviated as NAD+ and NADH (H for hydrogen), respectively.
In metabolism, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is involved in redox reactions, carrying electrons from one reaction to another. The cofactor is, therefore, found in two forms in cells: NAD+ is an oxidizing agent – it accepts electrons from other molecules and becomes reduced. This reaction, also with H+, forms NADH, which can then be used as a reducing agent to donate electrons. These electron transfer reactions are the main function of NAD. However, it is also used in other cellular processes, most notably as a substrate of enzymes in adding or removing chemical groups to or from, respectively, proteins, in posttranslational modifications. Because of the importance of these functions, the enzymes involved in NAD metabolism are targets for drug discovery.
In organisms, NAD can be synthesized from simple building-blocks (de novo) from either tryptophan or aspartic acid, each a case of an amino acid; alternatively, more complex components of the coenzymes are taken up from nutritive compounds such as niacin; similar compounds are produced by reactions that break down the structure of NAD, providing a salvage pathway that “recycles” them back into their respective active form.
Some NAD is converted into the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADP); its chemistry largely parallels that of NAD, though predominantly its role is as a cofactor in anabolic metabolism.  
NAD Powder is a white or off-white solid manufactured by a special technique. NAD(Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a coenzyme composed of two nucleotides, adenine and nicotinamide, that plays a critical role in cellular energy metabolism by carrying electrons from metabolic reactions to the electron transport chain in the mitochondria to generate ATP. It also plays a role in regulating DNA repair, gene expression, and cell signaling. NAD is a vital molecule for the cell's survival and function, and its levels decrease with age, leading to the impairment of these processes. NAD+ supplements are being researched for their potential anti-aging benefits and ability to improve cellular function.

Frequently Asked Question

Do you have any question?

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) has several essential roles in metabolism. It acts as a coenzyme in redox reactions, as a donor of ADP-ribose moieties in ADP-ribosylation reactions, as a precursor of the second messenger molecule cyclic ADP-ribose, as well as acting as a substrate for bacterial DNA ligases and a group of enzymes called sirtuins that use NAD+ to remove acetyl groups from proteins. In addition to these metabolic functions, NAD+ emerges as an adenine nucleotide that can be released from cells spontaneously and by regulated mechanisms, and can therefore have important extracellular roles.

First, inspect the factory. After some screening, NAD companied that directly face consumers pay more attention to brand building. Therefore, for a good brand, quality is the most important thing, and the first thing to control the quality of raw materials is to inspect the factory. Bontac company actually manufacturing NAD powder of high quality with the caterias of SGS. Secondly, the purity is tested. Purity is one of the most important parameters of NAD powder. If high purity NAD cannot be guaranteed, the remaining substances are likely to exceed the relevant standards. As the attached certificates demonstrates that the NAD powder produced by Bontac reach the purity of 99.9%. Finally, a professional test spectrum is needed to prove it. Common methods for determining the structure of an organic compound include Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) and high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS). Usually through the analysis of these two spectra, the structure of the compound can be preliminarily determined.

The difference all comes down to the charge of these coenzymes. NAD+ is written with a superscript + sign because of the positive charge on one of its nitrogen atoms. It is the oxidized form of NAD. It’s considered “an oxidizing agent” because it accepts electrons from other molecules.
Although they are different chemically, these terms are mostly used interchangeably when discussing their health benefits. Another term you may come across is NADH, which stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H). This is also used interchangeably with NAD+ for the most part. Both are nicotinamide adenine dinucleotides that function as either hydride donors or hydride acceptors. The difference between these two is that that NADH becomes NAD+ after it donates an electron to another molecule.

Bontac keeps on innovating and has won a foreign invention patent

Recently, a piece of good news came from the Japan Patent Office (one of the largest patent offices in the world) across the ocean to Shenzhen. The patent for "A STABLE NICOTINAMIDE RIBOSE COMPOSITION AND ITS PREPARATION METHOD" applied by Bontac  was approved and issued a certificate. This invention patent is of great significance to the stability of Bontac coenzyme series products. This is another new recently patent obtained by Bontac after accumulating more than 150 patent applications. Such impressive achievements in scientific research are undoubtedly the best commendation for the innovative spirit of Bontac Biotech. Invention Title: A STABLE NICOTINAMIDE RIBOSE COMPOSITION AND ITS PREPARATION METHOD Technical advantages: Industrial artificial preparation of nicotinamide ribosehave made considerable progress to prepare relatively pure nicotinamide ribose at a lower cost. However, the monomer will become a viscous solid within a few seconds or minutes under ambient temperature and humidity as nicotinamide ribose is very easy to absorb moisture, and will disintegrate into oil within a few hours. In order to keep nicotinamide ribose as a dry solid, it needs to be stored in an absolutely dry environment, or frozen stored at about -20°C, which severely restricts the commercial application and promotion of nicotinamide ribose. Therefore, the development of stable nicotinamide ribose products has become a major problem that needs to be solved urgently. The purpose of the present invention is to solve the technical problem that the nicotinamide ribose monomer mentioned in the above background art is difficult to preserve and cannot be promoted and applied because it is very easy to absorb moisture and decompose. The invention provides a nicotinamide ribose composition with stable properties, easy storage, transportation and use. Only by continuously innovating technology can we adapt to the new opportunities in the new era, "respond to all changes" before new challenges, and produce a qualitative leap based on quantity. In the current favorable situation, Bontac Biotech's innovation plan is still non-stop, focusing on the overall market direction, paying attention to every link, solving every subtle problem, and writing Bontac's legend with active innovation. At this stage, Bontac Bio will continue to build a better R&D team, increase investment in scientific research, create better products for our customers, and empower greater value.

The Prospect of the NAD+ Precursors in Age-related Diseases

1. Introduction Age-related NAD+ depletion affects physiological functions and contributes to various aging-related diseases. NAD+ precursors can significantly elevate NAD+ level in murine tissues, effectively mitigate metabolic syndrome, enhance cardiovascular health, protect against neurodegeneration, and boost muscular strength, with broad prospect in the anti-aging-related field. 2. The synthesis and metabolism of NAD+ in age-related pathologies NAD+ is synthesized from NAD+ precursors and amino acids tryptophan via three main pathways: De novo, Preiss-Handler, and Salvage. Supplementation of NAD+ precursors can be advantageous in maintaining normal cellular metabolism regulated by NAD+ and NAD+-dependent enzymes such as Sirtuins, PARP, CD38, and SARM1. NAD+ intermediates require conversion into NA to elevate NAD+ level. NAD+ and its metabolism-related enzymes have very important roles in biological processes such as cellular metabolic processes, gene expression, apoptosis and carcinogenesis. NAD+ repletion is drawing attention as an anti-aging intervention. NAD+ precursors, such as NA, NAM, NR, and NMN, provide beneficial effects in various preclinical disease models of age-induced deficits, including metabolic disorders, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative diseases, and musculoskeletal diseases. 3. Comparison on the efficacy of replenishing NAD precursors in pre-clinical studies and clinical studies in age-related pathologies The downregulation of NAD+ level in cells and tissues is not a universal phenomenon for aging-related pathologies. NAD+ merely decreases with age in certain tissues. The efficacy of NAD+ precursors in clinical studies has been limited in comparison with that in the pre-clinical studies. Noteworthily, this issue can be addressed as long as much attention has been paid to the metabolism of NAD. With regards to the oral supplementation of NAD+ precursors, there is obvious link between NAD metabolism and gut microbes. Specifically, oral consumption of NMN is converted into NAMN through interaction with the gut microbiome. In addition, dietary NAM and NR are converted into NA through gut microbiota. 4. Future research directions regarding the NAD+ metabolism It is fundamental to consider how the gut microbiome affects NAD+ metabolism, and changes in microbiome composition may affect the availability of NAD+ precursors. Future studies also require the comparative analysis of different precursors, and the role of gut microbiomes regarding various intermediaries needs to be investigated. Assessment of how NAD+ precursors affect microbiota and how their interaction with NAD+ metabolism benefits the physiological condition is essential for future preclinical and clinical studies. 5. Conclusion Supplementation of suitable NAD+ precursors or intervening in NAD+ metabolism can restore the body's NAD+ level, which is of great practical significance for effectively improving aging-related diseases and prolonging healthy life span is of great practical significance for effectively improving aging-related diseases and prolonging healthy life span. NAD metabolism involves gut microbiome, and in-depth research on their interaction is possibly an important breakthrough in the future to combat aging-related pathologies.

The Miraculous Potency of NR-CL on Mitigating Ischemia-induced Hippocampal Damage and Maintaining Cognitive Function

1 Introduction Nicotinamide riboside (NR), a derivative of vitamin B3, is a new type of bioactive substance, which can be generated by binding a carbohydrate molecular ribose with nicotinamide (also known as niacin or vitamin B3). Nicotinamide riboside chloride (NRC/NR-CL) is a chloride salt form of NR. In daily life, NR-CL can be taken from NR supplements and food such as meat, fish and cereals.  A recent study has revealed that NR-CL protects the hippocampus and ultimately promotes the recovery of cognitive function after brain ischemia. 2. The ameliorating impact of NRC upon ischemia-induced cognitive deficits  Ischemia-induced cognitive deficits are ameliorated post NRC treatment. Specifically, NRC treatment improves the learning ability of mice, as evidenced by the shorter latency and the decreased path length. The hippocampal protection provided by NRC contributes to the recovery of spatial learning and memory after the ischemic insult.  Figure 1 Acute NRC treatment potentiates cognitive recovery after ischemia 3. Reduction of the infarct volume in the hippocampus post acute NRC treatment After ischemia, there are deformed cell bodies, condensed nuclear chromatin, increased intracellular cell gaps, loosened cell arrangements and blurred visible staining in the damaged pyramidal neurons. NRC treatment partially offsets these morphological changes. Figure 2 Acute NRC treatment reduces the hippocampal infarct volume. 4. Recovery of neuronal damage in the hippocampus post acute NRC treatment After ischemia, brain damage emerges due to energy crisis-induced mitochondrial dysfunction, followed by the cell loss and neuronal apoptosis. NRC treatment leads to an increase in the number of positive cells, signifying the recovery of local neuronal loss.  Figure 3 Acute NRC treatment attenuates neuronal loss in the hippocampus.   5. Upregulation of NAD and ATP levels in the hippocampus post acute NRC treatment By repleshing the production of NAD, acute treatment with NRC, to some extent, can salvage the energy supply in the hippocampus, which conspicuously enhances the recovery of ATP level.    6. Conclusion Collectively, acute NRC treatment increases the energy supply and reduces the neuronal loss to protect the hippocampus, thereby facilitating the recovery of cognitive function. NR-CL (ie. NRC) is a very promising component of health care products and has a wide range of application prospects. Before use, one should follow the guidance of professionals. At the same time, attention should be paid to reasonable intake and safe use to avoid the adverse effects of excessive use.
