Nicotinamide riboside (NR) is a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) precursor. We previously reported that NR supplementation prevented the development of liver fibrosis in male mice. However, whether NR exerts a similar effect in females is unknown. Therefore, we determined whether NR supplementation can prevent obesity-induced inflammation and fibrosis in the liver and white adipose tissue (WAT) by providing NAD+ in obese female mice...Our results indicated that NR supplementation exerted an anti-obesity effect and prevented the development of inflammation and fibrosis in the WAT of old, but not young, female mice with diet-induced obesity.
