Although my blood pressure is not bad (128/82) @ 30 years old, there is room for improvement, and I may know the culprit. I follow a ketogenic based diet. mostly for the reason that I have a sugar intolerance and receive severe migraines when sugar is in my diet. So instead I use fat for fuel. However it is recommended that your salt intake should be raised while in ketosis. Salt raises blood pressure due to sodium in your blood steam straining your blood vessels leading to your kidneys which reduces the ability for your kidneys to remove water.

Perhaps I am overcompensating and need to lower my sodium intake.

Thoughts and input are welcome!

Thanks
If you are only getting salt through your diet and I am assuming that you are not eating a great deal of processed foods or diet soda, then you probably have another culprit. Genetics begin to play a key role and would be something to look at for a good view of the overall picture. The NAD should begin to help lower the blood pressure by increasing the elasticity of the vessels.
Thanks Drdavid

I will take a look in my family’s blood pressure. Something I completely overlooked!

However I do actually eat my fair share of processed meats. Pepperettes are my weakness! I always buy the natural select ones although I’m pretty sure that’s a pretty weak excuse. :lol:
Here is an article that I think you might like.

New age, that’s great! Also looking to hear how the NAD+ sublinguals go. Can you provide us with you blood pressure results PRE NMN use?

I’d love to know those as I am monitoring mine and would like some comparisons with a fellow NMN taker.

thanks !
Pre NMN Blood Pressure would have fluctuated between 140/85 to 150/85 Depending on daily circumstances...

With those results hundreds of thousands of people could see their hypertension simply vanish. It will be interesting to see as data continues to be compiled if NAD becomes a primary script from primary care doctors.

Hey guys, I have a question for you all.....NMN or NAD+. Which molecule do you find to be more important and why? Short answers are preferred. Im just curious to know what you all think and I hope you all are having a nice day of rest today! :D

Drdavid.
I will rerun my 24 hour automatic Blood Pressure tests in 6 months time.
The 24 hour test gives a good indication of your average daily BP without spikes at certain times being caused by day to day scenarios.
I will advise anyone interested by way of the forum.. :idea:

I think both are important. NAD is available for use immediately and NMN can be converted to NAD later. I feel NMN really helps in skeletal muscle recovery and increased athletic performance. NAD sleep, mental clarity, performance and recovery
