In the last batches of Apollo's Hegemony products, another glue was used for lids under the caps. The glue is weaker than previously used, this is why the lid often stays inside the cap when unscrewing the bottle. This does not affect the quality of products because during storage the lid adheres to the bottle and protects its contents.
Apollo's Hegemony NGN is a dietary supplement containing vitamin B3 in the form of nicotinamide riboside. The preparation supports optimal processes of cellular energy production, which contributes to an increase in the level of perceived energy and vitality, reduction of muscle fatigue and proper metabolism of nutrients.
Nicotinamide riboside is a product of biochemical transformations of vitamin B3. The advantage of this form is no flushing effect, characteristic of nicotinic acid – a popular form of vitamin B3. This effect triggers a feeling of warmth and redness of the face, which may cause discomfort. Vitamin B3 belongs to a group of vitamins soluble in water and is essential for the proper functioning of the body.
The mechanism of action of vitamin B3
The primary function of vitamin B3 in the body is to provide a substrate for the biosynthesis of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) and its phosphate (NADP +). These are two very important coenzymes, which – as coenzymes for enzymatic proteins – participate in a series of biochemical reactions taking place in the body, primarily in electron transfer processes, i.e. oxidation and reduction.
Fast metabolism, optimal energy production
The NAD+ produced from vitamin B3 is essential for proper metabolism of nutrients from which metabolic energy is generated. NAD+ is involved in the mitochondrial fatty acid β-oxidation. The process results in „burning” of fatty acids and production of substances used to obtain energy in the form of ATP in the processes of cellular respiration and the Krebs cycle.
NAD+ also participates in glycolysis, i.e. biochemical reactions, in which pyruvate, a molecule necessary for the Krebs cycle, is obtained from glucose. In addition, NAD+ participates, among others, in many systemic syntheses, including in the synthesis of thyroid and sex hormones.
Knowing the biochemical role of NAD+, it is not difficult to draw a conclusion about its immense significance for well-being, as well as for the level of perceived energy and regeneration of the body. Affecting cellular energy efficiency, the optimal level of NAD+ supports the increase in the level of vitality and improvement of psychophysical efficiency – including memory, mood, muscle work. Thus, it should not be surprising that the highest concentrations of this compound are observed in metabolically active tissues such as nervous and muscular tissue.
Slowing down of aging processes
One of the proteins for which NAD + is a coenzyme are sirtuins. NAD + is an activator of these proteins. Sirtuins have an effect on the activity of numerous genes that are important for the regulation of various cellular processes. Sirtuins are also involved in the regulation of life expectancy. Animal studies showed that the effect of caloric restriction on the increase in life expectancy is mediated through sirtuins. Therefore, it has been hypothesized that activation of sirtuin (e.g. by NAD +) could imitate the state of caloric restriction and potentially bring benefits related to the prolongation of life expectancy.
In conclusion, Apollo's Hegemony NGN is a preparation that provides an effective vitamin B3 derivative. The product is especially recommended when struggling with muscle fatigue, lack of energy, deterioration of physical and mental performance, and to support the functioning of mitochondria and optimal metabolism.
In athletes and physically active people, supplementation with nicotinamide riboside may bring the greatest benefits during fat reduction or when preparing for the competition, that is periods which are often accompanied by lowering of energy levels and mood worsening.
With long-term supplementation, it is recommended to control the level of alanine aminotransferase (ALT).
In order to fully support the functioning of mitochondria, a supplement containing L-carnitine or PQQ can be added to the supplementation.
