Thank you for your work to improve the health of so many. I very much look forward to your next book. I have been learning about recent longevity research into Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+).

What are your thoughts on this research and on the two precursor supplements NR and NMN? Which holds the most promise (if any) in your view? Are the NR supplements currently on the market effective in raising NAD+ levels?

I hear that clinical trials are underway now for both NR and NMN

    So sorry, Dr Rosedale is finishing up his book and not able to respond. However, for the years that we worked side by side, he was often disappointed as they would compare someone on terrible diets rejoicing that there was an improvement, when often the same results would happen if the people just ate a very low carb, high fat, moderate protein diet, often a far better improvement. We have not done any research on the products you asked about in particular.

    Thank you for your reply Fiona. I am excited to hear that Dr. Rosedale is finishing up his second book. I love his first book and have been following his high fat, low carb, moderate protein diet recommendations for 6 years, and I feel great eating this way.

    I also follow the supplement regiment from Dr. Rosedale’s first book so I am curious about new supplements based on the latest research. Hopefully his new book will review some of these such as NAD+ (NR vs. NMN), Metformin, Berberine, and whether these or other new ones are complementary to following a high fat diet.

    Do you know when Dr. Rosedale’s new book will be released and if it will also review supplements like his previous book?

    I am not sure as yet, he has so much amazing data that he wants to share, and will be expanding into different medical issues, I am not sure if there will be room for the supplement section, though I sure hope so. I know that between the two, metformin VS benfotiamine, Dr Ron would lean more towards benfotiamine, though metformin is covered by most people's insurance and it is one of the diabetic drug that he would allow his patients to stay on.
