NMN (nicotinamide mononucleotide) is a small molecule that is the precursor for the essential molecule, NAD+. This molecule helps the body to process glucose and fatty acids. It has shown therapeutic properties in animal and human studies.
NMN is an important molecule in the cell that helps to maintain a healthy immune system. It also has an energy transfer role. This molecule helps the body to produce energy by helping the cells repair DNA damage.
NMN supplementation has also been shown to improve insulin production. It also supports healthy insulin sensitivity in muscle. In addition, NMN has been shown to protect astronauts’ DNA from the effects of cosmic radiation. This molecule could one day be used to help NASA astronauts return to Earth from space.
Researchers have found that the molecule appears to enter the cell through a transporter located within the cell membrane. The transporter allows the molecule to enter the cell quickly.
The first clinical trial of NR was carried out and showed that the compound was safe to use in humans. It was also shown to increase the levels of NAD+ in the brain.
NMN supplements have been shown to be safe in dosages of up to one thousand milligrams. It has been shown to have very few side effects. It has been found to be absorbed rapidly into the bloodstream, even when taken by mouth.
NMN has also been shown to reduce inflammation in the central nervous system. Several clinical trials are underway to determine whether or not NMN supplements are effective in preventing age-related diseases.
