In order for a virus to infect your body it must enter your cells to be able to survive. This is because viruses cannot replicate on their own, instead they must hijack your cellular infrastructure and leverage it to make copies of themselves. Once enough copies have been made infected cells burst open and new copies of the virus is released and freed to infect neighbouring cells. Boosting your cellular NAD+ levels and sirtuin activity may be a good way to boost your immune system and protect yourself from viral infections. You can boost your NAD+ levels through supplementation, but there are certain superfoods that gives you a natural push.
