Why 80 Percent of New Year’s Resolutions Fail

A new year, and a new decade lay before us as we reach the end of 2019.

You’re inspired to start improving something about your health of life.

Don’t, well, more accurately do, but don’t do it for a new years resolution.

Do it because you are ready, do it because you’re done with the status quo, do it for your happiness, for your family.

Do it for any reason other than an arbitrary date with artificial importance projected upon it.

Changes are hard and habits are strong. It takes time and conviction to change so you need to be truly ready and you need to do it as soon as you can.

If you set yourself a new years resolution and fail you are likely to give up completely or revert back to comfort to relive the disappointment and depression that may follow a failed new years resolution.

Know that you have it in you to change without an arbitrary date. You can do it!

Risk-Benefit Analysis

NAD+ is a pyridine nucleotide found in all living cells. It plays an important role in energy metabolism and is a substrate for several enzymes (including those involved in DNA repair). NAD+ levels may decline markedly with age (Massudi et al., 2012Clement et al., 2019Zhu et al., 2011) and restoring those levels to a youthful state is believed to have beneficial effects on health and longevity. 

Key Questions 

This analysis seeks to answer the following questions:

  • Which health and/or longevity benefits result from raising NAD+ levels in humans? 
  • Which risks are involved in raising NAD+ levels (general and method-specific)?
  • What are the potential risk mitigation strategies?
  • Which method or combination of methods is most effective in raising NAD+ levels?
  • Which of the available methods are safe for use? 
  • What is the best therapeutic protocol available at the moment?

Risks: this risk is low (less than 10 cases for 100,000 patient years), but the risk of metformin-induced lactic acidosis (MALA) increases in certain situations where both the plasma levels of metformin are increased and lactate clearance is impaired.[6]
