What is Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN Supplement | NAD+ Precursor)?
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide (NMN) is a derivative of Niacin. Niacin is a form of vitamin B3 and is also known as nicotinic acid. Vitamin B3 is one of 13 essential vitamins our bodies need. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is known as a precursor to NAD+ (Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), NAD+ is a coenzyme in all living cells and plays a role in processes such as metabolism to DNA repair. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is a critical component in the production of NAD+ because the body converts Nicotinamide Mononucleotide into NAD+. Since NAD+ levels are critical for keeping the mitochondria working at optimal levels, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is viewed as one of the more important compounds in regards to maintaining cellular health.
There are a few differences between Nicotinamide Mononucleotide vs Nicotinamide Riboside. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is not considered a form of vitamin B3 while Nicotinamide Riboside has shown to be a proven form of vitamin B3. In terms of structure, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide molecules are larger and weigh more than Nicotinamide riboside molecules. Nicotinamide Mononucleotide has shown positive effects on NAD+ levels in animal models and is currently being tested in humans.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Benefits and Uses
- May help promote metabolic function
- May help support organ function
- May help promote physical activity levels
- May help support optimal cellular function
Vitality with Nicotinamide Mononucleotide
Our cells’ ability to produce energy declines as we age. Although science isn’t sure why this happens, research has discovered that NAD+ levels decrease as we age which leads to the belief that lowered NAD+ levels are responsible for lower energy levels and that using a Nicotinamide Mononucleotide supplement may compensate for the loss of energy production. Studies determined that supplementing with NADH was ineffective in animal trials, so this began research on raising NAD+ levels indirectly with a Nicotinamide Mononucleotide supplement.
Scientists ran several trials on the effects on mice after administering a Nicotinamide Mononucleotide supplement. Interestingly enough, energy promoting benefits were found exclusively in older mice. Research has found that Nicotinamide Mononucleotide benefits may help support overall cell proliferation. This leads to the belief that these cellular benefits are related to high NAD+ levels that maintain production of energy in the cell’s mitochondria.
Studies further found that regular NMN supplementation elevates NAD+ concentrations in the body, thus providing a readily available supply of NAD+ to be used. This research also demonstrated that NMN supplementation promotes the creation of NAD+ across organs such as the liver, muscle, kidneys, pancreas, blood vessels, and eyes. However, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide benefits go beyond increased NAD+ production. Some studies demonstrated that NMN may raise glucose tolerance and elevate insulin production under high fat diet conditions. This is believed to be the result of restoring sufficient NAD+ production and by balancing inflammation and stress caused by free radical damage. These studies found that NMN supports balanced inflammation levels within fatty tissue and improves sensitivity.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Stability
NMN has fairly lackluster stability and the powder needs to be stored at low temperatures. Due to this reason, we do not carry NMN powder, and instead we only carry enteric coated NMN tablets. The process of turning NMN into a tablet helps significantly improve stability, and to further improve on this, an enteric coating helps keep NMN even more stable!
During our manufacturing process, NMN is stored at very low temperatures in freezers, right before being turned into tablets. This helps ensure the best level of stability, so that you can experience the full benefits of NMN!
Enteric Coating For Better Bioavailability
Unlike most compounds, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide is only absorbed through the small intestines. The problem with this is that NMN is likely to degrade in the stomach before it even gets absorbed. The enteric coating allows NMN to pass through our stomach safely without loss or degradation, until it reaches the small intestine. This protects NMN from degradation when passing through our stomach and aids optimal absorption, giving you the most bang for your buck from our NMN supplement.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Stacks
NMN + NA-R-ALA for metabolic function: This combination may help support metabolic function and may help promote energy levels.
NMN + EZ Mega 3 Fish Oil for oxidation benefits: Combine these two for well rounded support for oxidation levels.
NMN + Cognizin Citicoline for cognitive function benefits: These two together make for a simple but potent stack for promoting memory and overall cognition.
Nicotinamide Mononucleotide Tablet Dosage
As a dietary supplement, take 1 enteric coated Nicotinamide Mononucleotide tablet 1-2 times daily.
