Biological Activity for Nicotinamide Riboside

Nicotinamide Riboside is an NAD+ precursor. It is a substrate for nicotinamide riboside kinases (NRK1/2). Nicotinamide Riboside shows neuroprotective effects in a mouse model of type 2 diabetes and improves mitochondrial function in muscle stem cells in aged mice. The compound also corrects non-alchoholic fatty liver disease phenotype induced by NAD+ deficiency or high-fat diet in mice. Orally bioavailable.
