Bulletproof's Dave Asprey Talks NAD With Dr. Charles Brenner

Find out what our Chief Scientific Advisor and Bulletproof's CEO have in common.

Now, if you’re listening to this going why should I care, this is PhD level biochemistry. Here’s the deal. This is fundamental to you being alive.
— Dave Asprey, Bulletproof CEO

On the surface, Bulletproof's Dave Asprey and biochemist Dr. Charles Brenner couldn’t appear more different. But as this Bulletproof Radio episode proves, they share one very important belief in nicotinamide riboside (NR). Here they discuss their mutual ambition to live healthy longer, why they think the mitochondria could unlock that ambition, and what NAD has to do with it all. 

Food and air are coming in. Your body turns them into electrons via the Krebs cycle. Then, the electron has to be carried somewhere. You got NAD to do that.
— Dave Asprey, Bulletproof CEO


Dr. Charles Brenner is the Roy J. Carver Chair and Head of Biochemistry at the University of Iowa, founding co-director at the Iowa Obesity Initiative, and also serves as the Chief Scientific Advisor to ChromaDex. See his CV.
