NAD Vs Viral Infections

Severe acute respiratory syndrome type-viruses and other viral infections render the body a battlefield, requiring mobilization of vast resources to mount an effective defence. These defences can backfire when they become uncontrolled and in some cases induce post-viral fatigue. A possible key to effective interventions is to trigger robust antiviral defences but with checked inflammation. A growing body of evidence shows that the metabolite NAD+ is a mediator of both antiviral and anti-inflammatory mechanisms. Based on this it is possible that a boost in NAD+ concentrations might play a role in preventing and treating severe viral infections.
