NMN is a molecule that has been studied for its potential in anti-aging health products. The molecule is thought to reverse aging and protect the body from age-related diseases.
NMN promotes the production of NAD+, an essential nutrient for the body’s cells. This nutrient helps in DNA repair and provides energy to the cells. As we grow old, our levels of NAD+ diminish.
NMN has been incorporated into a number of anti-aging supplements and is now widely available. Various studies have been conducted on the molecule, and researchers have found that it enhances eight key cellular anti-aging mechanisms.
Some of the benefits of NMN include slowing the aging process, preventing age-related diseases, and improving the function of the brain. It also helps fight Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
NMN is a precursor of NAD+, a molecule that plays a significant role in mitochondrial biosynthesis. When NAD+ levels decrease, our bodies experience aging, metabolic defects, and oxidative stress.
In addition to the aging effects, NMN has been linked to cardiovascular ischemia and cerebral ischemia. However, these findings are still preliminary, and further studies are needed.
Several animal and human studies have been done to evaluate NMN’s anti-aging activity. Researchers have also tested NMN’s safety. A phase I human clinical trial conducted by the Keio University School of Medicine in Tokyo showed that NMN was safe to take by healthy volunteers.
NMN was first studied for its safety in a double-blind, parallel, randomized controlled clinical trial. 66 healthy subjects took 300 mg of NMN daily after breakfast for 60 days. During this period, NMN concentration in blood increased 11.3%.
