NAD is an extremely important molecule for most cellular processes, involved in providing energy for those processes, as well as the ability to provide electrons to neutralize oxidizing agents coming from within and without.
Don’t forget that the N in NAD stands for niacin, and many of the benefits of NAD may come from niacin itself. If this is true, niacin would be preferred since it is far less expensive and supports several essential processes.
This may be true for all variants of niacin which include nicotinamide riboside and NADP.
