Nicotinamide mononucleotide, also known is NMN,is an innovative version of vitamin B3 that is a 1 step precursor to NAD+(NicotinamideAdenine Dinucleotide). NMN recently has been a popular topic studied by scientists because it could be potientially developed as anti-aging ingredient for pharmaceatical drugs from a nutraceutical.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is a naturally occurring compound that is naturally found in the human body and is found in small amounts and is found in some foods as well.
NMN is extremely orally bioavailable, and when taken orally can support NAD+ levels within liver and muscle tissue.
Recent research has suggested that NMN may support cardiovascular health, energy production, cognitive health, and well as retinal and bone health. One especially interesting finding of NMN research is that it may promote DNA repair and support the activation of the SIRTUIN genes which are thought to play a role in healthy aging.
Dosage: The generally recommended dosage of Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is anywhere between 250 – 750 mg per day. It is not recommended to take the entire day’s dose all at once, but to break it up into many smaller doses taken every 2 - 4 hours. Because of NMN’s short half life using it this way will cause NAD+ levels to be elevated all day long.
Side effects. While NMN is a fairly new supplement and research is ongoing, the studies that have been conducted so far have shown it to be very safe and non-toxic. Side effects are rare, but itchiness, dizziness, sweating, and nausea have been reported on occasion. Please consult your physician before taking NMN.
