The coronavirus has become a widespread pandemic, a concern that has not only increased the anxiety of the public around the world — but emphasized the current gaps in coronavirus research. Though increasingly studied, the current strain of viral pathogen that has invaded our homes — known as COVID-19 — has many scientists on edge.

Yet, it has also brought many researchers together in a rush to better understand how the virus works and how we can better prepare ourselves against it.

This upsurge in research efforts has unmasked a substantial amount of the inner-workings of the virus, including how…

From top medical clinics to biohackers like Dave Asprey and Ben Greenfield to celebrities such as Justin Bieber, why the NAD+ craze is a real one and how you can take advantage of it without needles and expensive visits to the doctor’s office.

If you’ve never heard of NAD+, you might be surprised to learn that within you there is a master molecule that is responsible for the energy production in your cells. Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+, does more than just boost your energy, it promotes cellular health and touts anti-aging properties. Without it, your mitochondria wouldn’t quite be the powerhouse of a cell you thought.

However, aside from the energetic pick-me-up, NAD+ therapy has more humble origins. Used for clinical reasons, NAD+ was shown to significantly restore the balance of neurotransmitters associated with drug addiction. Patients with chemical dependencies saw reductions…

Aging has long confounded scientists and philosophers alike. Why and how cells age is the key to understanding how to reverse the aging process and help patients live longer, fuller lives. A new theory, first discovered by Professor Denham Harman [1], known as the “Mitochondrial Theory of Aging” proposes that dysfunctional mitochondria, the small energy factories of our cells, hold the key to understanding the aging process.

Mitochondria are the powerhouses of energy production within our cells. They produce the energy molecule ATP, which acts as the carrier for cellular energy metabolism throughout the body. A critical component of mitochondrial…

Circadian rhythms dictate sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. The key to regulating this ever so important rhythm may be in a special coenzyme. Photo by Kinga Cichewicz on Unsplash

Sleep disorders are increasingly common in elderly adults and on the rise affecting over 60 million Americans annually. If you suffer from daytime fatigue or nighttime insomnia, your circadian rhythm may be to blame.

What we call our circadian rhythm, or our internal clock, helps our body regulate the natural flow of energy that correlates with the phases of the sun. When our circadian rhythm fails to manage the normal flow of energy, it can exhaust us prematurely and disrupt our sleeping patterns. …

Have you ever walked up to the top floor of your house only to get there and realize you weren’t sure why you walked upstairs in the first place? Or perhaps you find you’re just a little more forgetful than usual. Are you getting enough magnesium?

According to researchers, only 32% of Americans meet the recommended daily amount of magnesium (1).

And without magnesium, the body and mind don’t function at their best. It may even make you more susceptible to memory loss, as well as age-related memory diseases — like Alzheimer’s disease.

Let us explain!

The Power of Magnesium

Magnesium is the fourth…

Austin Martz is an American soccer player who currently plays for Saint Louis FC in the USL.

Mastering a sport doesn’t just stem from physical practice and skills. Many sports experts and coaches argue that going pro in any sport requires a high degree of mental resilience and mental focus.

For an athlete to succeed and gain a competitive advantage, they need to improve not only their physical skills, but their focus, concentration, and brain power. Hours of training is challenging both physically and mentally. And many athletes fail to live up to their full potential due to a lack of mental focus.

This is why many athletes like Austin Martz, a soccer player in the United…

With NAD+ being heavily researched for everything from anti-aging to brain health, we delved into the research to see which type of supplements deliver.

When supplementing with oral nutrients there are 3 unspoken rules that are key to any successful administration.

  1. You want what you are taking to be the actual supplement that is labeled on the bottle (because the supplement industry is so poorly regulated [1]). Working with reputable companies with high integrity is essential to ensure you are getting what you are taking.
  2. You want what you are taking to be properly digested and assimilated by the body.
  3. You want what you are taking to have the positive effect on the body or body systems that the manufacturers are claiming.

Bioavailability is…

Bacopa monnieri, also called brahmi, is a medicinal herb that has long been used in Ayurvedic medicine — one of the world’s oldest medicine and healing systems in the world. It’s found in various countries and continents across the globe and primarily grows in wetlands. And its use has been outlined and reviewed in various historical texts dating as far back as the 6th century A.D.

Today, bacopa is becoming a commonly used nootropic, alone and in combination with other ingredients and herbs. …

Cat’s Claw, also known as Uncaria tomentosa, is rapidly becoming a popular nootropic aiding in reducing brain fog, memory loss, depression, neurodegenerative disorders and diseases, and even Lyme disease.

Found in South America, Cat’s Claw is a green wood-like vine, identified by thorn-like hooks on its leaf stem. And today isn’t the first time it’s been used for medicinal purposes. For over 2000 years, tribes in the Amazon rainforest and in South America have used Cat’s Claw for asthma, protective effects, and more.

Today, Cat’s Claw is widely becoming a go-to nootropic for its brain protective properties and cognitive effects…

Ever wonder how people read so dang fast? It takes you 5 times as long to get through the same chapters as your friend. Why?

There’s a trick to it. And yes, they are surprisingly taking all that information in — same as you. Yet, how are they doing it so much faster?

It’s called speed reading. Speed reading is a process that decreases pauses in reading and allows you to consume more information at one time.

The average person reads 200–250 words per minute. The fastest readers in the world read at a pace of 1000 words per minute


A breakthrough in brain health and optimization. Nadovim is the first NAD+ based, physician-formulated nutraceutical for focus, memory and concentration.
