What is NMN?
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (“NMN” or “NAMN”) is a nucleotide derived from ribose and nicotinamide. It occurs naturally from the reaction between a Phosphate group and Nucleoside group containing ribose and nicotinamide. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide can be made from dietary sources such as fruits, milk, or vegetables.
Humans have enzymes that use NMN to generate nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH or NAD+). NAD+ is a compound that plays a vital role in energy production, metabolism, and gene expression in the body. It is scientifically proven that NMN rejuvenates old mitochondrion in context to restoring healthy blood flow.
Scientific research shows that when NMN is in collaboration with a healthy diet and exercise, it helps fight off aging. Studies of NMN in animal models show that NMN is a potent anti-aging agent. Many dietary companies use this base to flock the market posing the fact that NMN is a neuroprotective and anti-aging agent.
