Those who have been homebound recently have been forced to reconsider their health priorities, reevaluating everything from their diets to water intake and exercise routines. Even down to a cellular level - the very foundation of our health.
According to a recent survey of 2,000 Americans, 8 in 10 admit they didn't take their health seriously enough before the pandemic. This national study was conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Tru Niagen®. Respondents were asked about their health and how the novel coronavirus has affected the way they view their health regimens.
People are keeping themselves busy and boosting their moods by:
- Cooking & Baking - 46%
- Watching TV - 42%
- Reorganizing Their Home - 37%
- New Exercise Routine - 31%
- Learning a New Skill - 30%
- Curling Up w/ a Good Book - 29%
- Video w/ Friends & Family - 28%
- Researching How To Improve Immunity Health - 26%
Almost half of the respondents include their family on daily walks, 59% are using this time to eat healthier, 7 in 10 have struggled to stay positive and motivated during self-isolation, and a whopping 77% are using this opportunity to hit the reset on their overall health.
Studies have explored the physiological toll stemming from social isolation. Results from one University of Chicago study suggest that isolation triggers cellular changes, which can cause illness. So how do we keep our cells healthy and energized while we deal with isolation?
It's fascinating that people are getting down to basics. But why not approach from a different direction and target cellular health? All health is rooted in how cells function because all physiological change ultimately stems from our cells.
In order to support cellular health, you should focus on both macronutrients (carbs, fats, and proteins) and critical micronutrients like vitamin D and vitamin B3. Together, these support cellular health by maintaining the function of organelles within the cell such as the mitochondria, otherwise known as the powerhouse of the cell.

Newly published preclinical research from Dr. Charles Brenner, Chief Scientific Advisor, at ChromaDex - the makers of Tru Niagen - looks to Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide (NAD+) an important coenzyme that is critical to producing cellular energy.
NAD+ is a coenzyme that's critical to the healthy function of our cells and is essential for cellular repair. The less we have of it, the harder it is for our cells to produce the energy they need to function at their best. Dr. Brenner's discovery of Niagen® (Nicotinamide Riboside), a form of vitamin B3, was a breakthrough in understanding how to support cellular health.
Dr. Brenner's latest preclinical research sheds light on how viral infections can deplete NAD+ levels. "The virus and infected cells appear to be playing a tug-of-war with cellular NAD+," he explains. "Infected cells activate a set of genes to use NAD+ for defense while the virus has a specific gene to try to defeat this."
Viruses deplete NAD+ levels by infiltrating cells and hijacking cellular machinery, so it rapidly replicates the virus. In response, the cells increase the activity of NAD-dependent enzymes, but the virus retaliates to counteract this response. Depleted NAD+ levels weaken cells' resilience and ability to respond to stress.
Tru Niagen® is safe and clinically proven to elevate NAD+ levels by up to 50% in as little as 2 weeks. One vegetarian capsule a day, and your cells will be better equipped to support cellular repair and resilience throughout your body. Tru Niagen® costs as little as $30 per month with a subscription. They'll deliver it right to your door for free.
Like every supplement or dietary change, your result time will vary depending on your age, diet, exercise, and sleep habits. What you feel and how long it takes will depend on what your cells need. Maintaining cellular vitality will help you feel your very best.
We all want to stay healthy in these stressful times. Think holistically. The best way to maintain your overall well-being is to get to the core of your body. Cellular care doesn't just revitalize one part of you. Cellular care nourishes every cell of you.
