first, what is nad+?
To fully understand NMN, we must first understand NAD+. NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a molecule that naturally occurs in all life forms. NAD+ is a coenzyme that converts nutrient energy so that it can be used by cells. The levels of NAD+ in someone's cells determines the speed of their aging process. The molecule acts as a coenzyme in many critical biological processes, including metabolism, aging, cell death, DNA repair, and gene expression.
what is nMN?
NMN, or nicotinamide mononucleotide, like NAD+, is a molecule naturally occurring in all life forms. It is a vitamin B3 (niacin) derivative, which can also be found in various vegetables, fruits, and meat. In its naturally produced state, NMN is a precursor to NAD+, meaning it becomes NAD+ through a series of chemical transformations.
why supplement nmn rather than nad+?
When ingested, NAD+ and NMN do not have the same capacity – NAD+ cannot travel through the blood-brain route, ultimately keeping the molecule and its from penetrating cells. Conversely, NMN is able to travel the blood-brain route and enter cells, proving it a successful way to increase NAD+ levels. Thus, helping restore cellular energy, support healthy brain function and promote anti-aging throughout the entire body.
what are the benefits of increasing nAD+ levels?
NAD+ is essential in human life, health, and longevity. It plays a vital role in cellular metabolism, turning nutrients into cellular energy, and activating sirtuins, a set of proteins that repair DNA. NAD+ levels decrease as we age due to environmental factors, stress, and various other factors. In fact, it is believed that the levels of NAD+ in someone's cells determines the speed of their aging process. Decreased NAD+ levels are also responsible for many age-related conditions like cardiovascular disease, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer.
By supplementing NMN, we can help maintain NAD+ levels, ultimately slowing the effects of aging. While there is limited available research on the effects of supplementing NMN, studies have also suggested that NMN could offer broad applications and therapeutic potential*.
*The NMN industry is energetic, with many ongoing studies; We will update webpages as new information becomes available.
