Coenzyme 1 (NADH)
The name coenzyme Q1 refers to NADH. NADH stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide hydride, or NADH for short, or also coenzyme 1. Put simply, it is a biological form of hydrogen. NADH is found in every plant, animal and human cell. Hence, we ingest it daily when eating food. Because it is a natural molecule that occurs everywhere, it has no side effects.Schedule an appointment
The function of NADH
NADH is the bottleneck in a cell’s energy production process. The more NADH is available (together with coenzyme Q10), the more energy is produced, and vice versa.
NADH reacts in every cell with the oxygen we take in through respiration. This produces the universal energy molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and water, which is found in every cell.
NADH is involved in more than a thousand metabolic processes and therefore has a wide range of effects.
NADH increases the energy in the cells, strengthens the immune system, relieves pain and acts as a powerful antioxidant.
Areas of application
Because of its many positive effects, NADH can be used for a wide range of diseases and health disorders. Some examples are:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Alzheimer’s / dementia
- Brain disorders
- Sleeping disorders
- ADD and ADHD
- Type 2 diabetes
- Menopausal complaints
- Increasing performance
- Glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye)
- Macular degeneration
