  • NADH Reaction - European Study Documents Effects Of NADH On Alzheimer Patients, by Jorg Birkmayer, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Clinical Chemistry.
  • Unfortunately, most forumlations of this substance are manufactured with a polyvinyl excipient, called "polyvidone" or "povidone." Since vinyl outasses xenoestrogens, I don't trust this.
  • Here's one that does not contain Povidone: by Ecolgical Formulas; I called them to verify that they don't use the patented ENADA formulation [(800) 275-3495]. Here are all the ingredients of the EF product, taken off the bottle in front of me:
    • 1.8 mg NADH
    • Sorbitol, Methyl Cellulose, Potassium Bicarbonate, Magnesium Stearate, Tocopherol Succinate
  • Unfortunately, on my first trial of this it gave me a headache, and no energy. Will try a lower dose later.
  • Alpha Ketoglutaric Acid
  • L-Carnitine
