NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is an enzyme that plays a role in cellular processes, including mitochondrial function, cellular energy production and DNA repair. The line’s key ingredient, Niagen, is formulated to help support the regeneration of NAD+ levels in dogs, the companies said. 

"By combining the ideals of science and nature and upholding the brand's commitment of quality and trusted ingredients included in every formula, we were able to create a groundbreaking product that benefits the healthy aging of dogs inside and out," said Bob Kalil, vice president of product development for Zesty Paws. "While this category is in its early stages, our product innovation is a very exciting example of what's to come for supporting longevity for pets."

The Healthy Aging NAD+ Precursor pack from Zesty Paws, available on Chewy, includes one bottle of 60 capsules of Niagen and one jar of the brand's bacon-flavored Pill Wrap Probiotic Paste.
