The relationship between NAD+ and NMN
Before introducing what NMN is, we must first understand what NAD+ is.
NAD+ (Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide) is a coenzyme that exists in most cells in the body. It can convert nutrients into energy, prevent cell apoptosis and aging, and has a great relationship with body functions, DNA repair and metabolism.
If the NAD+ concentration is stable, the cells can maintain normal function, otherwise, it will gradually decline.
From the age of 30 , the NAD+ in the body will gradually lose. When the age reaches 50 , the level of NAD+ is already half of that of 20 years old. And NMN (Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, nicotinamide mononucleotide ) is the precursor substance for the synthesis of NAD+ .
The main effect of NMN is to increase the content of NAD+ , thereby promoting cell metabolism, improving energy levels, and delaying aging. A 2016 study showed that NMN can also improve cardiovascular health, lower blood sugar, promote fat metabolism, and more.
Methods of supplementing NMN
NMN can be ingested from fruits, vegetables, meat and seafood.
Such as : cucumber, cauliflower, tomato, mushroom, avocado, beef, shrimp. It's just that the content is quite low.
Therefore, there are many oral NMN supplements on the market.
Who is NMN suitable for? What is the best age to start taking NMN ?
Most people are suitable for taking NMN , especially middle-aged and elderly people, those who work late at night, those who drink alcohol, those who are stressed, and those who love beauty.
If you start taking it at the age of 30 , the effect may not be too great, but it can also achieve the effect of preventing aging. It is recommended that people over the age of 50 can consider starting supplements.
Although NMN is helpful to human health, the safety risk of long-term use of NMN is still in the research stage.
Does NMN have side effects? Who should not eat it?
Although NMN is helpful to human health, the safety risk of long-term use of NMN is still in the research stage. At present, no research has found that long-term use of NMN has any side effects on the human body.
Pregnant women, breastfeeding women, people with high uric acid levels, and young people under the age of 25 are not recommended to take it, because NAD+ in the body is relatively sufficient.
However, too high NAD+ levels may accelerate tumor growth, so cancer patients may be at risk from taking NMN products. In addition, if you have any diseases or doubts, you must consult your doctor before taking it.
Numbers and dosages on the packaging
NMN10,000 , 15,000 , 18,000 and other values marked on the product packaging represent the total amount of NMN contained in each bottle of product ( calculated in milligrams (mg) ) .
For example : NMN18,000 means that the bottle contains 18,000mg of NMN , if there are 60 capsules in each bottle, each capsule contains 300mg of NMN . Studies have pointed out that taking 250mg/ day of NMN can increase human NAD+ and improve health.
However, not all NMN products on the market are of high purity, and even do not contain NMN , which may not be effective.
Therefore, it should be noted that the ingredients do not have to contain the words "Nicotinamide Mononucleotide , Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, etc. " instead of vegetable and fruit extracts, nor nicotinamide ( vitamin B3) .
