NAD+ vs NADH? Due to the small alphabetical difference, these nutrients are often mixed up and confused by most consumers.  NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in every single living cell. But sometimes it’s referred to, colloquially, as just NAD (no plus). That plus sign matters, though, because the term NAD is used to collectively refer to the different forms of NAD: the molecules NAD+ and NADH. We will cover the essentials and explain about each of these nutrients below. NAD NAD or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide is derived from Nicotinamide Riboside (NR). NR is one of the 3 main forms of Niacin (vitamin B3). NAD+ is a substrate for a number of important enzymes, including poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase (PARP) and sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), which is known as a classic longevity protein. NAD+ is also essential in metabolic processes such as creating ATP in your mitochondria. It accepts and donates electrons and is used in oxidation-reduction reactions in the mitoch

Dr. Zelenko’s main hypothesis  based on the data  showing that early intervention and treatment of high-risk patients with COVID-19 results in significantly few hospitalizations and deaths. This treatment regimen involving zinc, low-dose hydroxychloroquine, and azithromycin is also apparently known as, “The Zelenko Protocol.” Update:  Recently, Ivermectin has come to the fore as a more effective (also long standing, cheap, generic drug), in all three stages of COVID-19. Dr Zelenko has also updated his protocols to incorporate ivermectin as an option for both the prophylactic and treatment protocols as shown below. Introduction This webpage compiles content related to the early outpatient treatment protocol that has been proposed by  Dr. Vladimir Zelenko  for the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Dr. Zelenko originally risk-stratified patients and treated high-risk patients with hydrox
