Scientists have, for years now, been experimenting with how to treat the human condition at its most basic levels. That is, by altering the building blocks themselves, which make up our biology. While we are, at the moment, taking baby steps into this brave new world, it would seem inevitable that at some point in our future, near or far as that may be, science will tame our genetic code. Instead of going to the beauty parlor, will we simply be able to turn on a gene for blonde hair? Will we be able to live out extended lives in a disease free body, designed to our own exacting standards?
In 2013, a study by David Sinclair of Harvard and his colleagues reported that the mitochondria in lab mice was restored to youthful productive levels when treated with NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide), a substance which boost levels of NAD in the body. Such a study speaks well to the success of increasing NAD in our own bodies, and the benefits to be gained from doing this. Increased levels of NAD can rejuvenate our mitochondria to the point where it acts like its more youthful self, allowing us, in turn, to rebound to our own youthful vigor while decreasing the threat of so many all too common degenerative ailments.

Exercise helps maintain and repair brain tissue. The brain is responsible for processing information from the sensory organs to the cognitive, emotional and even the memory centers. When it’s damaged, it can’t process the information and is unable to process memories and emotions. The effects of aging, stress, depression and other issues are greatly reduced when the brain is healthy and functioning properly. Exercise can help in restoring health and mental function for those who are already dealing with problems or have been affected by other issues such as disease.
