A little background: I've had UC almost all my life, and at age 24 it took a turn for the worse and spread to other parts of my body due to a case of encephalitis brought on by toxoplasmosis. After the encephalitis, my life became an absolute mess, and I tried every anti-inflammatory under the sun. They helped for a while, but they kept weakening my immune system and letting the toxoplasmosis get worse. Anti-microbals kept it in check, but weren't a long-term solution, and kept doing numbers on my liver. So after reading all sorts of research on NR, I sucked it up and finally bought it. I was extremely sceptical of its effects, as I have been burnt before by many other supplements that make claims of reducing inflammation but not impacting your immune system negatively. I started with 2 capsules, on an empty stomach straight after I wake up. The first day, my energy was definitely improved, but the inflammation remained and affected my mood still. By the second day, my energy improved further, and the inflammation weakened. By the third day, it's as if the inflammation isn't even there, my energy is amazing and my mood was at an all-time high. The things that I would avoid and neglect out of fatigue excited me once again! Honestly, this is one supplement I can't be without. The price is very steep, but the results are indescribable, it's done a complete 180 on my life. If you can afford it, try it for at least a month. Most healthy people won't see my kind of results, but for those with autoimmune disorders and chronic fatigue, it may very well give you your life back.

I'm trying this with pterostilbene, 3-4 mini-fasts a week (my job & living in NYC takes care of the exercise. I'm 64 & work on the road, so have a wildly variable diet (but try to keep to anti-inflammatory, balanced lipid, mostly vegetable based). So far, no tentacles, third eyes or prehensile tail growth? I have yet to gain telepathic, necromancy or levitation skills.

A newly discovered form of Vitamin B3 that increases NAD+ levels. Quite expensive though.

In the last few weeks I've increased my dose from one to two capsules a day and I must say I am feeling brighter, and happier with fewer mood swings. I feel more balanced and positive in my outlook and have more physical energy. Is this effect related to the product? Can't tell, really but I shall continue to take it as on the basis of my reading about it, it does seem beneficial.
