Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide or NAD or NADH is a coenzyme found in all living cells. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide exists in two forms, an oxidized and reduced form abbreviated as NAD+ and NADH respectively.

Evidence[edit | edit source]

A systematic review of alternative treatments found evidence of the effectiveness of oral NADH in patients with ME/CFS.[1]
