This is an interesting study with interesting data. Although a small sample size and short term study the conclusion would be that NR at 1000mg BID did not alter mitochondrial respiration in the subset of the population. It appears that there where only two samples drawn from the participants. It would be interesting to know if more samples were taken if the data would change or remain along a fixed line. The second thing would be if the sample size is increased would the data change. Small sample size research can produce skewed data. Third, does the dosing recommendation matter? If dosing is adjusted do the results change even in this sample size. Fourth, are there other physiological changes that are occurring with NR supplementation that was not part of this research criteria or does NR supplementation just not provide any relevant physiological gains?
