Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) and Its Impact on Brain Health

The conversation kicked off with an exploration of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), a coenzyme crucial to metabolism found in all living cells. John Tsikouris explained that NAD plays a pivotal role in nourishing the brain’s cells, resulting in improved mental clarity, cognitive function, and cellular repair. As individuals age, the natural production of NAD decreases significantly, leading to a decline in DNA protection and cellular function.

John shared his personal experience with NAD supplements, emphasizing the importance of finding the right dosage. He noted that at 40 years old, the body gives up 40% of its natural NAD production, and by 60 years old, this figure increases to a staggering 80%. By incorporating NAD infusions or injections into one’s routine, individuals can potentially slow down the aging process and mitigate the effects of chronic conditions associated with aging.

Mike O’Hearn, referring to NAD as “steroids for the brain,” highlighted its use by professionals like Phil Heath before significant events to enhance cognitive clarity. Moreover, NAD is currently being explored as a treatment for conditions like Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Glutathione: The Liver’s Natural Ally

The conversation then transitioned to the topic of Glutathione, a substance produced by the liver from amino acids. John explained that Glutathione is involved in tissue building, repair, and immune system function. Factors such as aging, drug use, and alcohol consumption can reduce its production, leading to potential health issues, including a fatty liver.

Activities such as drugs and alcohol can contribute to a “fatty liver,” and Glutathione can play a crucial role in restoring the liver to its normal state. John emphasized the importance of collaborating Glutathione intake with lifestyle changes, including improvements in diet and reduced alcohol and drug use.

The Trimune Supplement: A Powerful Immune Booster

The discussion then turned to the Trimune supplement, which combines the above mentioned Glutathione in addition to injectable vitamin C and zinc. This potent combination offers a range of benefits, from preventing illnesses to speeding up recovery from colds. As winter approaches in certain regions, Trimune emerges as a valuable preventative measure to keep individuals healthy and resilient against common illnesses.

Liver and Kidney Health: Vital Organs for Athletes and Beyond

Mike and John delved into the critical importance of maintaining liver and kidney health, particularly for athletes and individuals engaged in strenuous physical activities. They highlighted the potential impact of alcohol, certain drugs, and a poor diet on these organs.

The conversation underscored the regenerative capacity of the liver and kidneys, with John offering a practical tip for individuals concerned about kidney issues. He recommended refraining from gym workouts for 24 hours before a doctor’s appointment to ensure accurate readings, as training can temporarily skew kidney levels.

Supplements and Peptides: Bridging the Nutrient Gap

John Tsikouris concluded the discussion by emphasizing the challenges individuals face in obtaining essential nutrients solely from modern diets, which are often compromised by processed foods and factory farming. Regardless of age or health level, John recommended considering supplements and peptides to optimize overall health.

Unfortunately, simply living as a human being in the modern world leads to natural deficits in nutrition. Unless you want to spend majority of your waking life dedicated to natural nutritional sources and health – modern medicine has allowed for legal and safe supplements that can aid in optimizing your nutrition and health.

While many believe that supplements and visiting a doctor are only required when something is wrong, both Mike O’Hearn and John Tsikouris urge that people of any age always practice preventative health. Visit a doctor, ask questions about supplements that can optimize your health. It’s never too late… or too early.

Wrap Up

The Mike O’Hearn Shows episode with John Tsikouris provided a deep dive into the world of NAD, Glutathione, and the Trimune supplement, offering valuable insights into enhancing brain health, combating aging, and fortifying the immune system. As the pursuit of optimal health continues, the conversation highlighted the importance of embracing innovative approaches to supplement traditional lifestyle choices.
