Dr. Sinclair has been meeting with the renowned Dr. Rhonda Patrick of FoundMyFitness for a series of interviews that will soon be released in a podcast. Most recently, they discussed evidence for nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) and nicotinamide riboside (NR) as methods of boosting cellular NAD+.
Can old cells be tricked into thinking they’re young again? Come back for the interview to find out what they had to say!
About Dr. Rhonda Patrick
Dr. Rhonda Patrick holds a Ph.D. in biomedical science and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in biochemistry/chemistry. She also did training at the Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute as a postdoctoral fellow.
Her research includes investigating:
• How cancer, apoptosis and metabolism may be linked together during her graduate research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
• How micronutrient inadequacies may affect inflammation, metabolism, aging and DNA damage (and if supplements could help undo the damage)
• How vitamin D may play a part in physiological functions, behavior and brain function
• How insulin signaling may play a part in protein misfolding (something commonly seen in neurodegenerative diseases)
Her considerable research has been published in publications and journals such as Nature Cell Biology and Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. But one of her true talents comes in being able not only digging into the details of micronutrient deficiencies, genetics and longevity… but the ability to clearly portray her findings to the average consumer.
