Nicotinamide Riboside Supplementation to Suckling Male Mice Improves Lipid and Energy Metabolism in Skeletal Muscle and Liver in Adulthood


May 28, 2022

Serrano, Alba


Nicotinamide riboside, an NAD+ precursor, has been attracting a lot of attention in recent years due to its potential benefits against multiple metabolic complications and age-related disorders related to NAD+ decline in tissues. The metabolic programming activity of NR supplementation in early-life stages is much less known. Here, we studied the long-term programming effects of mild NR supplementation during the suckling period on lipid and oxidative metabolism in skeletal muscle and liver tissues using an animal model. ...These pre-clinical findings suggest that mild NR supplementation in early postnatal life beneficially impacts lipid and energy metabolism in skeletal muscle and liver in adulthood, serving as a potential preventive strategy against obesity-related disorders characterized by ectopic lipid accumulation.
