This Is Why My Mom And I Are Feeling More Energized

I’ve been so excited about this specific blog post because my mom and I were able to do this together. It’s been such a long time since we worked on a project like this with one another. Ever since I moved into New York City, I’ve honestly missed all of our shoots and the fun that we had working on my content. When the opportunity came up to partner with Tru Niagen and have her participate in this with me, I knew that it would be a perfect fit for us both!

As you all know, I just recently turned 35 and my mom is in her late 60s. I can’t believe she will be 70 soon! People always tell us that we do not look our age, but we definitely feel our own physical changes with each year that passes by. We are at such different stages of life, but we both have hectic schedules and lifestyles. This often leads to stress, sleepless nights, low energy and difficulty focusing throughout the day.

For me personally, moving into NYC has been physically draining. I’m way more active than I’ve ever been before and while I do enjoy it, it can also be challenging to make it through the day. My mom is constantly splitting her time between work, my sister, myself, her two granddaughters and basically everyone else in our family. I have no idea how she does it! We’ve both been craving an extra boost of energy and a good night’s sleep for a long time now.naty michele with tru niagentru niagenA few months ago, I was introduced to Tru Niagen, a cellular health supplement that provides cells with a unique form of vitamin B3. These supplements are clinically-proven to safely increase NAD levels.

What is NAD?

NAD allows cells to produce the energy they need to perform optimally throughout the body. That means supporting things like muscle function and recovery, since practically everything our organs do rely on NAD. When we experience metabolic stress, our NAD levels can decrease. When those levels are too low, our cells have a harder time producing energy. A few life stressors that cause decreased NAD are consuming too much alcohol, overeating, and other processes that occur as we age. This explains so much.

This was all new information to the both of us and we honestly hadn’t heard much about NAD or cellular health before. It’s definitely been such an informative and eye opening process. Before partnering with Tru Niagen, I did a little bit of research and read some reviews. It was important for me to have a good understanding of the product. I even decided to consult with my doctor first. Besides regular vitamins, I’ve never really taken any supplements before so I wanted to get the OK from my doctor. Once I received the go-ahead, my mom and I began taking two capsules of Tru Niagen each morning and it’s now a part of our daily routines. At week 2 is when we started to notice some overall improvements, and then at week 6 we began feeling those changes even more. We’ve been checking in with one another during our many weekly phone calls to remind each other to take the pills and to discuss our results. Here are the three main changes we’ve experienced so far!naty michele walking with her mom in central parknaty michele and her mom at central park Better Rested

I struggle a lot with getting a good night’s sleep, and it seemed to get worse when I moved. Every night like clockwork, I would wake up several different times and then have difficulty falling back asleep. As you can imagine, this caused me to wake up feeling exhausted and cranky, which is not a great way to start the day. After taking Tru Niagen for the last two months, I can now see how energy starts at the cellular level. When I get up in the morning, I feel ready to start my day now. Some mornings, I’ve even noticed I’m waking up earlier than usual.

It’s been a very similar experience for my mom. Her increased cellular energy seems to have translated to an easier bedtime. For both of us, it seems that when our cells are getting a little extra energy support, our bodies are able to rest more easily at the end of the day.

More Cellular Energy

This is something that my mother noticed before I did. She’s currently working with a photography studio, where she’s pretty much on her feet all day. When she’s not working, her time is divided between a lot of people. She said that the supplements have been helping her feel more energized at work.

I first felt an energy boost at one of my nighttime SoulCycle classes. I usually go every Monday night and towards the middle of class I feel myself getting especially tired. Since I’ve been taking Tru Niagen, it’s been much easier for me to make it to the end of class, giving me the boost that I need. Living here in New York, I’m constantly on my feet, going up and down the stairs in my building, and all the subway stations, so it’s been great to have that extra dose of cellular energy. I can literally feel it!naty michele jumping up with her mom at central park

More Attentive 

I usually struggle with being able to multitask, but I think this one ties in with an increase in energy. My mother and I have been much more attentive because the increase of cellular energy throughout our days has helped us feel more renewed. It’s amazing how this extra energy helps us with getting those to-do lists done and keeping our commitments. It’s crazy how each of these benefits is connected to even more benefits. We both feel we’ve been able to conquer our goals that much easier while taking Tru Niagen.

A Few Other Facts

The supplement is safe to use. NIAGEN® has no known negative side effects. The capsules are caffeine-free, nut-free, gluten-free, and vegetarian with no animal byproducts or artificial colors or flavors. Tru Niagen is the only supplement of its kind demonstrated to safely replenish NAD in our bodies.

tru niagen I’m really happy that we decided to give this a try. We both plan to continue taking Tru Niagen daily past this partnership because we’ve truly felt a difference. I mean, who doesn’t want to feel their best? I’m looking forward to what the next six weeks will do for us. This whole experience has been super informative too and I love that I’ve been able to share what I’ve learned with all of you! Have any of you heard about Tru Niagen? You can learn more here. I’d love to get your thoughts. Cheers to aging better!
