What are the benefits of NR6?
NR6 is an effective precursor to NAD+ when taken orally. NAD+ provides cellular energy and supports healthy aging through hundreds of biochemical reactions in every cell in your body.
How does Xtend-Life ensure the quality of the NR in its NR6?
We source our Nicotinamide Riboside Chloride (NR) from one of the world-leading suppliers of this ingredient. Our supplier is accredited to the ISO9001 international quality standard. We test every batch of NR for identification and purity by an independent GMP-certified laboratory here in New Zealand. The minimum standard we have set for NR purity is 98% with the typical results exceeding 99% purity.
How long will it take to notice a difference?
Virtually impossible to say as it varies with each individual. The data suggests that the effect is cumulative and takes about three months to kick in whereas some individuals can feel benefits after just a few days.
What age is this suitable from?
Although NR6 can be taken by anyone 18 years and older it is really not necessary until someone is getting to age 30+ when NAD+ levels start to drop sharply.
Can I take NR6 alongside my pharmaceutical medications or supplements?
There should be no issues with taking it alongside your other supplements. Unlikely to be any issues with Pharmaceuticals and there are no reports of any issues but if you are on medication you should check with your health provider to confirm.
Are there any side effects from taking NR6?
There is always the possibility of minor side effects such as stomach upsets from any supplement. Taking non-enteric coated supplements just prior to food minimizes such a possibility. There are no known serious side effects with NR6.
Is NR6 safe to take?
The safety and/or efficacy of Nicotinamide Riboside Chloride are supported by many human clinical trials some of which are listed in the references. Nicotinamide Riboside has achieved regulatory acceptance by the U.S. FDA, Health Canada, the European Commission and Therapeutic Goods Administration of Australia.
What's the difference between NR (Nicotinamide Riboside Chloride) and NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide)?
NMN is another precursor to NAD+ and is popular with some people. We had the option of using either NMN or NR. Costs were similar. However, after considerable research, we felt that NR had benefits over and above NMN. There was also stronger scientific evidence supporting the efficacy of NR over NMN. We prepared a 'paper' on this rationale.
Should I take supplements that have NADH?
We have investigated the option of NADH extensively over the years and concluded that using a precursor for NAD+ was a much more effective protocol. This is further explained in a paper under Resources on this product page.
Can the daily dosage be increased?
Some studies on humans have been up to 6 times higher than the recommended dose rate for NR6 with no problems. We are aware of some people doubling their dose for short periods but it is not something we recommend. The ideal dose which is safe and effective is 300mgs a day of the NR which is contained in one capsule of NR6. It is also the amount recommended by all the major regulatory authorities. So, best to stay with one cap a day.
I already take Total Balance. Is there any benefit for me to add NR6?
Absolutely if you can fit it in your supplement budget. This product has quite a different action to Total Balance. Whereas Total Balance will have some benefit on raising your NAD+ levels NR6 is very targeted to boosting NAD+ to youthful levels and works synergistically with Total Balance.
Will I be overdosing on folate and B12 if I am taking NR6 in addition to Total Balance?
No, not at all even with Total Balance and NR6 combined the total dose is well within acceptable safety limits. Any excess is excreted in the urine.
Is NR6 suitable for vegans and vegetarians?
Yes, all the ingredients are vegan suitable and the capsules are vege-caps.
Does NR6 contain soy, gluten or dairy?
Can I take NR6 if I am pregnant or breastfeeding?
NR6 contains 300mgs of NR (Nicotinamide Riboside). NR is approved for pregnant and lactating women up to 230mgs a day. NR6 exceeds those amounts so if you wish to take NR6 you should only do so in conjunction with the advice of your health provider.
Can I give this to my child?
NR6 is not suitable for children unless prescribed by a Doctor.
